Posted on September 26, 2011 at 9:25 PM



"This is to help Us all to find Our Similarities and is not intended to Heighten Our Differences. These 16 Truths are Ancient in their Origins.They encompass the Basic Beliefs of All World Religions in some form or phrasing. These "Truths" are African in their origin,and are testimony to the Spiritual Sophistry of the Traditional African Religions (pre-"Christian" and pre-"Islam") that have existed for over 10,000 years. Feedback is welcomed...Enjoy"

Baba Ifalade:

"Please mention that these came "through" and are not by me (Baba Ifalade)*. These 16 largely came from a collection of Elders. Oluwo Afolabi Epega figuring prominently in the group. Thank you for re-posting.* I fully welcome any other "16" that any other may have. This is an attempt to give Us a full and adequate definition of Common Ground. From "basics" like this example, we can come to better envision the similarities encompassed in one another's Body of Knowledge - even when there are differences of Region or Time-line. - Baba Ifalade"
