Africans were enslaved for life ever since Bacon’s rebellion. Despite colour-based slavery being well in place, and despite the new legal distinction between slaves and servants, Defoe still referred to ‘whites’ as slaves in his writings. Similarly, larger colonies weren’t averse to taking more ‘whites’.
Note: I’m well aware of its associations with Hitler, eugenics, the “master race” concept, etc. as pointed out by Abagond and others. However, last year I became aware of another type of Aryanism, which I believe some also call esoteric Hitlerism. I neither endorse nor condemn it, just present it here for examination. Like I said, I like to explore topics others don’t.
The basic crux of this worldview is its insistence on three different races of humans. However, these races have nothing to do with skin colour, geographic ancestry, hair texture, ethnicity or anything like how it’s clasically defined. Continue reading About Aryanism→
That’s my title for the six religions pretty much everyone has heard of all over the world: Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism & Sikhism. They encompass a stupidly wide range of beliefs, opinions, practices and historical development paths.
However, I recently noticed something. Despite their differences of original language, beliefs, number of gods, etc. there’s one thing they all have in common. With one arguable exception, they all originated from Asia!
Yep. Hinduism, Buddhism & Sikhism all originated in India – SOUTH ASIA.
Christianity was drafted in Judea (Palestine) – SOUTHWEST ASIA. Islam was created in Arabia – SOUTHWEST ASIA. Judaism started in Canaan (Palestine) – SOUTHWEST ASIA, although the Torah never lets Jews forget “their” enslavement in Egypt (NORTH AFRICA) and their dispersion around the world, hence why I call it the arguable exception.
Why is this significant?
Is it significant that Judaism, Christianity & Islam’s original languages fall under the Afro-Asiatic family, while the others’ fall under the Indo-“European” family?
Honestly I don’t know. This post is an invitation to discuss & debate the matter. How important is a religion’s geographic origin? Why are Asian religions so predominant in the world, especially Christianity & Islam? Does it matter at all, as long as their teachings are valid?
