In The 14th Century & Beyond Africans Never Knew They Were Unclad by yanshDoctor: 9:02am On Jan 13
King James Bible
Genesis 3:7 : And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were Unclad; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

Sahara African civilization was a big mess. could you imagine Africans were Unclad even up to the 18th and 19th century? what could be responsible for this lagging behind? is it the food they ate? has anyone carried out research on their environment? what could that be? is it witchcraft because i heard witches are generally against change or development as they want the Status quo.


First contact with civilizations, Africans were rag tags, they walk on barefoot, no well, no toilet, no soap, they fetch and take their bath in the river. they make hut and some of them even slept on trees.


during the trade exploration the white men came in contact with Unclad Africans. the sad part was that none of them actually knew they were Unclad.

breast and joystick were all over the place. it was really a good place to trade with uncivilized people as they can easily be cheated. they gave them clothes, bed, guns, farming tools, mirror, pot, lamp, umbrella. jug, any kind of tools you can think off. and collect their resources, farm produce, seeds and rubber. it was a good place for trading. the Portuguese really help Africa civilization.



from the content it shows Africans are a thousand years behind.

I doubt this is true. There may have been some African tribes that were unclad at that time but it doesnt mean all Africans were unclad.
"Unclad" is a relative term by the way. Even the Khoikhoi were using some tiny piece of cloth to cover their pubic region. And they were still backwards compared to the other civilized tribes.
In any case, the presence of nude tribesmen in Africa severely oppugns the bible narrative. Because if "...the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were Unclad; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons", then there shouldnt be so many unclad tribes in Africa and other places since we all came from Adam and Eve and would have inherited their forbidden-fruit-induced repulsion to nudity.

it should be collective. even if you are the most intelligent being and found yourself among Africans nothing good will come out from it.

if the collective approach is not there you are wasting your time. just enter the street and see are average Africans reasons you will know what i'm talking about.

that collectiveness like let us build modern infrastructure, development and researches, estate and road. the mind of Africans is for today and their self only. Africans have the lowest IQ in the world. even the ones in america are not left out.

I beg to differ; not all Africans were "unclad" and uncivilized.

There were many African tribes that displayed outstanding innovation, some of them rose up to conquer their neighbours and form empires. Take for example the Bini people of the great benin empire, they built massive walls round the capital city,and were the first to invent street lightening(using oil lamps) even before the UK got its first street lamp.


Many tribes excelled in arts and craft; sculpturing of brass and exotic wood,especially among the Nok and Bini people. Even warfare, like in the case of the Zulu people.


I understand the current socio-political situation in massively pushing people towards afro-pessism, but we should not mis-interprete history.


Some, not all,african people were unclad.

oga why are arw you lying like this


The use of street lighting was first recorded in the city of Antioch from the 4th century. [1] Later it was recorded in the Arab Empire from the 9th–10th centuries, [2] especially in Cordova . [3] In the Middle Ages, so-called " link boys " escorted people from one place to another through the murky winding streets of medieval towns.

Before incandescent lamps, candle lighting was employed in cities. The earliest lamps required that a lamplighter tour the town at dusk, lighting each of the lamps. According to some sources, illumination was ordered in London in 1417 by Sir Henry Barton, Mayor of London though there is no firm evidence of this. [4]

In 1524, Paris house owners were required to have lanterns with candles lit in front of their houses at night, but the law was often ignored. Following the invention of lanterns with glass windows, which greatly improved the quantity of light, in 1594 the police of Paris took charge of installing lanterns in each city neighborhood. Still, in 1662, it was a common practice for travelers to hire a lantern-bearer if they had to move at night through the dark, winding streets. Lantern bearers were still common in Paris until 1789. In 1667, under King Louis XIV , the royal government began installing lanterns on all the streets. There were three thousand in place by 1669, and twice as many by 1729. Lanterns with glass windows were suspended from a cord over the middle of the street at a height of twenty feet and were placed twenty yards apart. A much-improved oil lantern, called a réverbère , was introduced between 1745 and 1749. These lamps were attached to the top of lampposts; by 1817, there were 4694 lamps on the Paris streets. During the French Revolution (1789–1799), the revolutionaries found that the lampposts were a convenient place to hang aristocrats and other opponents.

in the 14century, the Portuguese already trade with Africans. sold lamp and taught them lamp lighting with oil.

When I say they were the first to invent it, I mean in Africa,and relating it to the UK(the colonialists), Bini indeed had street lamps before they did. Please read my comment with objective scrutiny and intelligence.

the UK make use of street light 15th century before venturing bini in late 18th century.

if those Portuguese/Britain traders never made contact with Africans early 14th century, the bini would still be Unclad till today. that's my point. also not the first is black or sahara africa. the Ethiopian had contact with the east very early before 1st century.

Don't generalize! Some Africans weren't unclad in ancient and medieval times. For example, here in Ethiopia, some ppl worn cotton and lucrative clothes at least as early as 2nd millennium BC.

The Aksumite empire of Ethiopia was among the 3 strongest power at it's peak alongside Roma and Persia. They coined their own Gold and Silver coin currency (only 4 states did this in ancient world) and traded as far as Roma, Egypt, Arabia, India and China.

The below pics are Ethiopians in medieval times.

yes i have said that before. its was because they had contact with the east very early at the time.

Ethiopians are not really nigro. because if black india and Indonesia are not classified as nigro then they are not.

they are simple combination of proto- Niger–Congo and Middle Eastern genes. people from the east that sail through that ocean had contact with the locals.

They aren't the combination of proto Niger-Congo and Middle Eastern. Almost all are Afroasiatic and this ppl and language originated here in western Ethiopia. Only few of us intermingled with Niger-Congo speakers and Middle Easterners. Most Ethiopians are Cushites and Semiticied Cushites.

Here is an illustration which shows the origin of Afroasiatic and as a result also show that Middle Easterners, Ancient Egyptians, Berbers and Chadics descended from Ethiopia some thousands of years ago.

they had contact with white. especially Jews and Persians, Arab and Asia's very early because the India ocean cut across their borders. they were early settlers from the east. like as i heard the men brought beautiful women from other region during that period. that one of the major reason they and Egypt civilized very early. this guys were not sahara negro black.

Try reading up this book...how Europe underdeveloped Africa...then you'll realize that Africa wasn't backward as you think...

FOR EXAMPLE

Have you asked yourself how the ancient Bini empire operated?
How the craftsmen were able to manipulate bronze and other metals despite their "backwardness"?
Have you bothered to ask why the British looted artifacts from the Bini Empire which remains in British museums up to this very day?
If they were not valuable...why would the white man take them?

what craftmanship are you talking about. those things wont have generated money here. its just the history of conquered places they put it on their museum to tell the story.

check google to see the craft you are talking about compared to craft from Asia, east and Rome even dated back before Benin expire.

not all Africa was Unclad. The Muslim part of Africa not only wore clothes but produced many intellectuals before contact with Europeans. e.g Timbuktu was a centre of Learning, on a vusit to Sokoto in the 19th century, Clapperton met Sultan Bello reading an Arabic version of Euclid's book on Geometry. etc

he was a Muslim which means he already had contact with people from the middle east. i am talking of Africans that civilized to clothes themselves without contact from outside would. when the bini had contact with Portuguese the early 14th century they civilized from there as well.

Same applies to places like the Amazon forest in Brazil.

There are tribes that are yet to come in contact with the modern world. But that doesn't make you see Brazilians coming out en masse to think their cultural heritage is trash and backward...

The exploits of the ancient past are lost in the sands of time as most of these things were not documented. This applies to Sub-saharan Africa, South America, North America, New Zealand, Australia, Easter Islands e.t.c.
