How they conquered Africa #101
Lesson 7: "Learn the difference between education and miseducation." It is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world. 💡
Education the process of receiving or giving systematic instruction, especially at a school or university. How often do we verify the sources?🤔 Ever wondered why the curriculum never evolves in a constantly evolving world? 🤷🏾♀️ After hundreds of years, children's nursery rhymes are still comprised of 'Twinkle, twinkle little star' and the 'Mary had a little lamb'? Surely there's got to be more creativity unless there's more to those rhymes than we understand? 🤔
In the 12th Century, Africans built and ran the best educational facility in the world. Long before Europeans built universities, the university at Timbuktu had an average attendance of around 25 000 students within a city of around 100 000 people. Within the university curriculum there were various degrees of learning called primary, secondary and superior as well as what they called the Circle of Knowledge. Other subjects included literature, science, mathematics and medicine - where surgical operations as the delicate as cataract removals and eye surgeries were conducted.
Centuries ago, educated men and women understood how to read the stars and signs of the solar system to tell the time, predict weather and on special occasions, the future. If you own a watch or clock, then you're already benefiting from this knowledge because your watch is basically a miniature sun dial. This knowledge was once widespread but now controlled by a small few making a profit off you. Ancient subjects also included Astronomy, the branch of science which deals with celestial objects, space, and the physical universe as a whole.
The three wise men were young men, possibly in their 20s and 30s who were educated and could tell the messiah was born just by stargazing. How many young men of today are that educated? When you gaze at the skies, what do you see, besides the obvious? ☹️🤦🏾♀️ Education will either empower or enslave you. So ensure the knowledge you acquire is the whole truth and nothing but the truth.👍🏾 #WakeUp #KnowYourHistoryToday
