(Copy of poster essay above) The truth of African Contribution to Europe by the Bronze Age
If you have looked at the link, a similar poster could be made for most European countries including Italy, Britain, France, Yugoslavia, Austria, Germany, Hungary, Romania, Siberia, and Finland to name a few. Europe was virtually populated throughout (not with the density of today’s populations in Europe) by Africans. Archeologists, anthropologists, and historians state that human beings were living a hunting/gathering way of life until the agricultural and pastoral revolution in Anatolia, Turkey near 10,000 BC. This revolution was carried from there throughout Europe. Anthropologists use the term “invasion” to account for the spread of Paleolithic Europeans into Europe from the Ukranian Steppes near 3700 BC. There they met these Middle Eastern farmers. Stuart Piggot writes of the transformation that occurred in Europe from the beginnings of the agricultural revolution stating that he looks at: “the transmission of these skills by movements of peoples or by assimilation.” (See: Ancient Europe: from the beginnings of agriculture to classical antiquity, Edinburgh, 1965, jacket).
His words do not capture the relationships between the movement of people carrying these skills and the assimilation by Paleolithic Europeans who learned and carried on these first skills of civilization. We can tell something about:  the long, narrow skulls in (4000 BC) B and C;  the golden penis-sheath (C), in addition to  the incised, steatophygous body (A) (5000 BC), a type found in Africa this very day. The archeological records tells us that carriers of  the technology for bronze-working (F),  gold craftsmanship (B. C, E);  pottery, tables, chairs, altars, worship (D) (6000 BC), were African. Piggott notes that the big dairy, clothing, baking, and cattle-meat industries today were the offspring of the Middle Eastern farmers: which the archeological records shows were Africans. In the Paleolithic, the European-to-be had language for words of body movements and when encountering “Middle Easterners” gained vocabulary for technology, farming and so on – the heart of the IE language. But, ironically from African languages established for half a deca-millennium before the first encounter between Africans and Europeans.
The European-to-be (see map) learned these things in an African context in Bulgaria, Yugoslavia, and elsewhere as he passed in transit from the Steppes going through Europe. He went this route before entering Asia, Greece, Turkey, and the Mediterranean where he established Assyria, Israel, Persia, and Greece. Lands, at the time, full of Africans farmers living in peace for the most part. [end of poster essay].
It is my opinion that Western society is in chillingly urgent need of a reevaluation of self as “self” has not been evaluated since the Paleolithic ended 6500 years ago. This is not a joke. Western society began full-force with Assyria and Anatolia where kings, soldiers, priests, and their societies believed myths borrowed and remade from African originals. For instance. It is recognized that the Greeks coming out of the Balkans (see above poster) into the area of the Aegean took and remade Egyptian, Sumerian, and other local myths. In African and Egyptian prehistoric mythology they envisioned the creation of the universe (as seen in rock art 6000 BC: link below). It was of a man and woman prohibited from intercourse by the intercession of a god placed between them – the heavens and earth separated by air. In Egyptian mythology, the Earth (Geb) and Heaven (Nut) are kept apart by Shu (Air) placed between them. This was borrowed by the earliest Christian redactors who eliminated the names of the gods and kept the process: “In the beginning god separated the heavens from the earth.” It is hardly more complicated than that, though scholarly discussions will continue for the next thousand years on the point.
Gary Greenberg, a Jewish scholar, wrote that this and many other aspects of Genesis were early theologians taking Egyptian mythology (his focus was Egyptian mythology, not other) and stripping it of the gods to be left with a single god who did it all. (See: Gary Greenberg, Myths of the Bible – How ancient scribes invented Biblical History, Sourcebooks Inc, New York, 2000).

I hope you could open the link directly above. Since modern history began, brother has been against brother and nation against nation as they have humanized and theologized ancient African myths that did little more than explain natural processes – it was their science set to metaphor. And today, we have Armageddon pitting the Christian world against the Arab for little more than a manipulation of ancient African myths. We have seen and are in for horrific bloodshed as the Western self-myth is just that. A myth with no roots in self-analysis. There is a need to go back to man at the Paleolithic who first met the African in Europe and see who he was to now know who he is. In the end, there must be trust and peace. This is the most urgent business before us as I look at it unless we want the next year, decade, century, millennium, and deca-millennium to look like the last half deca-millennium. The West must deeply and decisively confront who and what it is and has been. This is true for all peoples and nations.
