The supremacy of Africa that lasted for 15,000 years is a mystery to unlock. Kingdoms taking over the world and it advancement in civilization could not have evolved from the primitive supposed race positioned deep in the forest.
Well, history says it the other way. From the Nile of Egypt and the soil of Ethiopia Africa superiority of the world was recorded and it impact on modernisation cannot be degraded.
In Ancient times, Africans were the most united group of people in the world. They gained and sustained their power by building strong kingdoms fortified with religion, education, architecture, agriculture, science, and anything worth for civilization
African Spiritual live was of reverend, the same as the Whites Christianity. Africans believed in the Supremacy of the Omnipotent and the one true God of creation. Though the name God was not actively playing in Africans religious believe, but they knew the could worship the Supreme Being through lesser entities called gods. In Ancient Egypt, there were many gods the people worshipped. To name a number but few; Osiris, Isis, Anubis, Hathor, and Bastet. The strong religion Africa built affected their rise over other continents of the world and ruled for 15,000 years.
History repeated itself when the Europeans invaded Africa with their religion; Christianity. When the Europeans stepped on the soil of Africa, they came to meet a well established religious culture of Africa that they struggled before succeeding to imposed their spiritual lifestyle on Africa.
Architecture was not left out in Africans rule for 15,000 years of the world. Egypt; the mother of civilization put much on architectural monuments that was mind blowing and highly advanced in technology.
The architecture of the temples of Thebes are still marvellous today.C.H. Vail in (Ancient Mysteries) describe it like this. “ At a short distance from Danderah, now called Upper Egypt, is the most extraordinary group of architectural ruins presented in any part of the world, known as the Temples of the ancient city of Thebes. Thebes in its prime, occupied a large area on both sides of the Nile. This city was the center of a great commercial nation of Upper Egypt, ages before Memphis was the capital of the second nation in Lower Egypt; and however grand the architectural monuments of the latter may have been, those of the former surpassed them. The portrayal by pencil or brush can convey but a faint idea of the perfected city.”
Max Muller in (Egyptian Mythology) tells us that: “Egyptian temples were made of stone, the outer courts of mud bricks. Wide roads led to the temples for the convenience of processions, while the immediate entrance was lined with statues, consisting of sphinxes and other animals. The front wall formed two high tower like buildings, called pylons, before which stood two granite obelisks. Immediately behind the pylons came a large court where the congregation assembled and watched the sacrifices. Immediately next to the hall of the congregation, came the hall of priests, and immediately following the hall of the priests, came the final chamber called the Adytum, i.e., the Holy of Holies, which was entered only by the High priest. This was the place of the shrine and the abode of the God.
Lots of Egyptians pyramids were built around 2560 BCE.
Education on the other hand, went hand in hand in Africans reign for 15,000 years with civilization. The educational system of ancient Africa is still having it share in today’s education. The ancient Africa education system was elaborately formed and structured to the current social and political needs of society. Ancient Africa education was channelled towards impacting the knowledge of mathematics, geography, history, medicine, science, and literature.
Africa also introduced types of writings to enhance education in their time of reign. Writings like Hieroglyphs, Here are some pictorial view of Egyptians writings
With an advanced education, Africa was able to rule the world for 15,000 years.
Africa even today, is notably known in the world for vast accumulation of natural resources. Think of how abundant these resources were at the time where the continent was not populated. Africa had it all, the mineral, the forestry, and the lands. This helped Africa to utilized to the resources to their advantage and gathered enough materials that other parts of the world needed and benefited from it by trading the resources.
In fact, before you can think of anything else, know that Africa was once the first race to dominate and ruled the world for 15,000 years before any other race evolved to think of colonization.
