Our Afrikan Ancestors are very deep. We are the ancestors sleeping... There are levels of thought that we are reaching that some try to replace with wicked spell magic/ fantasy and lies.

The Etruscans, for the little we know, followed a similar religion. Should we see here a true astrological religion based on sixteen signs instead of twelve? In any case, it is certainly a memory of Atlantis, homeland of the Etruscans and the Yorubas.

On the compass always appear sixteen directions whose names are listed here in initials.Here is another track: wouldn't the sixteen divisions of the sky show that the Yoruba gods came from the sea? If there is a place where it is important to divide the horizon into sixteen directions, it is definitely the wide ocean. From time immemorial, sailors have included wind rose on their marine maps, which is their strongest ally in the liquid desert, the compass rose. The sixteen directions of the sky mean that Yoruba gods were high seas' sailors, to whom the direction was very important.

Most probably these high sea sailors were coming from the other side of the Atlantic, some 9,000 years ago. This could explain many cultural similarities that can be found between the two shores of the South Atlantic. Other authors have highlighted the existence of a maritime tradition in West Africa during the early history, these include Harry Bourne, who also quotes Paul Johnstone (Seacraft Prehistory, 1980) and McGrail (ib . & The Boats of Ancient Northwest Europe, 1987).

A film about the bronze cast Head of an Ife King, currently on display at the British Museum in London.These sculptures are sculptures of black people Ile Ife Nigeria the cradle of Yoruba's

Europeans underestimating the utter genius of ancient Africans. Literacy originated in Africa (in Egypt) Kemet and they wanna proclaim that Egyptians weren't blacks, now it's that they didn't even make their own sculptures!. The arrogance of these people is astounding, what sense does it even make that the Portuguese made these? All they Ports cared about was money, not pleasing the natives.

Head of an Ife King is more than 20,000 years old

 

There are much older ones in private collections and the ulm museum in germany

I totally agree with the idea that Yoruba civilization is a great but most importantly the Yorubas speak of life as having origin in the sea. The Orisha Olukun who is the original sea Orisha before Yemoja she owned the entire earth as the waters covered all the Earth. It was said that Obatala looked upon the Earth and saw it was dark and gloomy, asked Olurun the sky Orisha for permission to change it. The story that proceeds highlights the creation of earthly life---with Obatala taking 4 objects, a snail's shell filled with sand, a white hen, a black cat, and a palm nut. The story is so telling of early life and the process of evolution, first snails are insects which probably the first life after bacteria in the sea started to seek land. The first mammal was probably birds as birds fly far away over marsh land and trees carrying the seeds of life to remote parts. Also I like to mention birds also have in them reptile genes which is necessary for snakes and lizards to exist as they form an important function within the ecological balance of nature. Then the black cat which cats are pure mammals so this gives now 3 different types of life now, the insect, the mammal/reptile, and the pure mammal. The hen is the chicken which also a mammal who is an important food source larger mammals as chickens out number even humans on earth and are a wide food source for man as well animals. The palm nut represent the first trees were Palm trees and not Oak or any other type of tree, also all trees disburse seeds which geminate more trees and smaller plants also fertilize the land. The sand is the story represents the early origins of mud, which becomes dry earth thus when seeded with plant fall off, mammal feces, both become fertilization sources. The gold chain represents two ideas, the chain is symbolic for DNA, the linking of acids that make up the various different life forms possible on earth. Also the gold is symbolic for the electricity as gold is the best conductor or electricity. Without the electricity life could not exist, we are all surrounded by a bio-electrical field, which is our life force. In essence the story of Obatala and Olokun is a story of how life began on Earth via evolution. The Yoruba story not only tells you how life began but the necessary steps in which life sprung. There is always more to African myth stories that what is on the surface, in my opinion is nothing more than hidden African science within each story.
