The Original name for Africa is :Alkebulan: Arabic for " The Land Of The Blacks"

What 2 know more about Afrika? Start at the beginning and getting the name right.

The Original name for Africa is :Alkebulan: Arabic for " The Land Of The Blacks"

Alkebulan is the oldest and the only name of indigenous origin. It was used by the Moors, Nubians, Numidians, Khart-Haddans (Carthagenians), and Ethiopians. Africa, the current name adopted by almost everyone today , was given to this continent by a European invader by the name of Louis Africanus. Like all methods of manipulation the Romans sought to completely disconnect the indigenous Africans from their culture, deities, and knowledge.

History of Louis Africanus and Alkebulan's name change:

Publius Cornelius Scipio battled Carthage–a powerful city-state in northern Africa–which had established itself as the leading maritime power in the world. The First Punic War broke out in 264 B.C. when Rome interfered in a dispute on the Carthaginian-controlled island of Sicily; the war ended with Rome in control of both Sicily and Corsica and marked the empire's emergence as a naval as well as a land power. In the Second Punic War, the great Carthaginian general Hannibal invaded Italy and scored great victories at Lake Trasimene and Cannae before his eventual defeat at the hands of Rome's Scipio in 202 B.C. left Rome in control of the western Mediterranean and much of Spain. In the Third Punic War, the Romans, led by Publius Cornelius Scipio the Younger, captured and destroyed the city of Carthage in 146 B.C., turning Alkebulan into Africa. Scipio then later adapted the name Publius Cornelius Scipio Africanus.

The following is a great Alkebulan quote:

"Think about your Alkebu-lan consciousness, your culture, your names, your homeland, your past, your civilizations, your heritage, your ancestors, and your Mind. Today we have a false identity of self, self-hatred, hatred for your brother, and a deep hatred for Alkebu-lan our origin.” Nana Nasi

I remember reading about the European invader that named Africa after his surname. Wonder why it never reverted to its original name.

Apparently that's not true:

After the Romans defeated Carthage (which is in modern-day Tunisia in Northern Africa) in the third Punic War, they called their new province “Africa.” The most popular theory as to the origin of the name is that it was named for a native tribe there—the Afri, with “Africa” then being the feminine form of “Africus”, literally meaning “land of the Afri”.

http://www.todayifoundout...ontinents/

Here is an intersting discussion in which it is asserted that the name "Alkebulan" was originated 500 years ago:

As we show in Part 3 of our book, the name Alkebulan (Alkebulam) was addressed briefly by Leo Africanus in his 'History of Africa' over 500 years ago. This is where Dr. Ben got the term. Leo Africanus was unaware of the actual origins of the name Alkebulan however. We address this fully in our book, AFURAKA/AFURAITKAIT - The Origin of the term 'Africa'

http://www.assatashakur.o...inent.html

That was in response to a question asking where Dr. Yosef Ben-Jochannan found the name "Alkebulan" (he's the "Dr. Ben" referenced in the post).

Finally, here is an excerpt from the above-listed book, explaining the origin of "Africa":

Numerous scholars over the centuries have attempted to delineate the etymological origins of the name Africa. However, they have failed because of a lack of understanding of Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestral Religion, cosmology and culture.Odwirafo Kwesi Ra Nehem Ptah Akhan is the first to elucidate and publish the actual etymological origins of the name Africademonstrating the name to be derived linguistically and cosmologically from Afuraka/Afuraitkait - the original male and female aspects of the name. This includes showing the actual term written by our Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African) Ancestresses and Ancestors in the medutu (hieroglyphs) of Ancient Kamit (Ancient Egypt) - a discovery which heretofore had never been accomplished. Afuraka/Afuraitkait is an indigenous designation for the continent first propounded by Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans~Black People) prior to the existence of any other people on Earth..."

http://www.odwirafo.com/AFURAKA-AFURAITKAIT.html

As you can see, the term "Africa" was most definitely not derived from the surname of a European invader. Nor does it appear that "Alkebulan" was the original name of the continent.

That was what I read. Did I say it was true? There's a difference. If the info you posted is true, then glad to know it wasn't named after someone's name, but of something more significant.

Someone told me this name back in 1992 when I worked a register in a grocery store.

He was NOI, and many of them believe Islam is the original religion of 'the Black Man'

Yet it did not exist-nor the Arabic people when people from Central/West/East part of SubSaharan Africa moved upward into the region that became Egypt.

the great Ethiopian and Nubian empires existed way before the Arabic people came to be and Islam/Muslim beliefs did not come into existence until Muhammad (Arabic: محمد‎;

.

This still reads as someone 'else' naming/defining the 'country/continent from the outside

Like the term Christian didn't come from the disciples of Christ but from people who observed them

Alkebulan: Arabic for " The Land Of The Blacks

.

It says [name of indigenous origin. It was used by the Moors, Nubians, Numidians, Khart-Haddans (Carthagenians), and Ethiopians]

but the name is 'Arabic' in origin, and the Arab peoples existence is more 'recent' and definately not the language of the original Nubians, Numidians, Egyptians, Ethiopians

It isn't and cannot historically be the original & indigenous name of 'Afica'
.

[ 4 syll. a-fri-ca-nus, af-rican-us ] The baby boy name Africanus is pronounced aa-FRIY-Kaa-NahS †. Africanus is of Latin origin. The name's meaning is 'from Africa'.

From Science to Religion, many believe at one or 2 times in origin the earth's continents were connected. So in a way, in the beginnings there was no Africa, Europa, N/S Americas etc Just one or 2 big land massess connect. And the continents broke away over time.

.

There is strong evidence that most of the Earth's continents have been periodically joined together into supercontinents as the movement of the plates brought them together. The most recent of these supercontinents, Pangaea, formed about 270 million years ago and broke up about 200 million years ago.

The geologic record provides evidence of older supercontinents than Pangaea and a so-called "supercontinent cycle" of periodic supercontinent formation and break-up. What ultimately drives the cycle is a subject of scientific debate.

Image: Artwork showing the predicted position of the Earth's continents about 250 million years in the future (credit: Christian Darkin/SPL)

Supercontinents

In geology, a supercontinent is the assembly of most or all of the Earth's continental blocks or cratons to form a single large landmass. However, the definition of a supercontinent can be ambiguous. Many tectonicists such as Hoffman (1999) use the term "supercontinent" to mean "a clustering of nearly all continents". This definition leaves room for interpretation when labeling a continental body and is easier to apply to Precambrian times. Using the first definition provided here, Gondwana (aka Gondwanaland) is not considered a supercontinent, because the landmasses of Baltica, Laurentia and Siberia also existed at the same time but physically separate from each other. The landmass of Pangaea is the collective name describing all of these continental masses when they were in a close proximity to one another. This would classify Pangaea as a supercontinent. According to the definition by Rogers and Santosh (2004), a supercontinent does not exist today. Supercontinents have assembled and dispersed multiple times in the geologic past (see table). The positions of continents have been accurately determined back to the early Jurassic. However, beyond 200 Ma, continental positions are much less certain.

Were All the Continents Connected at One Time?

by Digger Doug

Dear Will, Covington, KY

Since I spend much of my time just beneath the Earth’s surface digging for worms, I would consider myself an expert in the field of geology (remember that geology is the study of the Earth). Although I don’t burrow too far below the surface of the Earth, I’ve smelled, touched, and tasted more kinds of soil than most humans ever will. I must admit, however, I cannot give you a definite answer to your question. No one knows for sure if the seven continents of the Earth were ever connected. However, geologists have found the same kinds of fossils and rocks on neighboring continents (like South America and Africa). Also, there does seem to be a nice fit between the continents on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. If you place North America and South America on a map next to Europe and Africa, then “squeeze” the other continents together, it appears as if they could have fit together nicely at one time in the past.

We cannot be sure whether the continents once fit together and then separated. But we can be certain that if they did drift apart, it did not take millions or billions of years like evolutionists want us to believe. God could have separated the continents during the Creation week only a few thousand years ago. Or, the land may have begun to separate rapidly during or immediately after the worldwide Flood of Noah’s day. The fact is, we simply don’t know.

Alkebulan most certainly is not the original name for Africa just as Islam and Arabic are not the original language and culture of any part of Africa....not even North Africa. The various cultures, languages and histories of the continent are much older than that.

FYI Christianity actually pre-dates Islam in Africa.

I dont think anyone thinks that, Islam took off in Africa because of similarities that already existed between Islam and the monotheistic religions in Africa.

Christianity pre-dates Islam in general. thats just history.

I beg to differ. Many NOI members, Moorish Nations and other black hebrew groups have told me that in their attempts to recruit myself and others.

I actually found a few sites that said the same, whereas others said it wasn't. So there seems to be many sites that don't mention other names Africa was referred to. also like Babynoz that even Islam wasn't its original religion, especially when there were so many African ethnic groups with their own religious beliefs.

Found this on a link on some early religions in West Africa:

sacred-texts.com

West and Central Africa

"The West African area is important because this is where the majority of slaves departed for the New World. Hence large elements of West African, particularly Yoruba, religion (blended with Catholicism) can be found in religions such as Vodun (also known as Voodoo) (Haiti), Candomblè (Brazil) and Santeria (Carribean).

There are religions in Africa that pre-date all religions.

I find African-mysticism particularly interesting, especially the focus on effecting society as opposed to the individual- a beautiful sentiment.

"African mysticism retains a social, worldly focus, deriving its purpose and value from its functionality in effecting change in the society"

You should have done some of that research before you started this thread.

I think what may be in dispute is if Alkebulan was the original name or among one of the assumed original names of Africa, before it was referred to in finality as Africa. I am open to more research from anyone here if they can find facts on this to confirm Africa's original name.

These comments about what is "true" or isn't true is comical 2 some degree.

What I know 4 sure is that almost everything we have been taught is laced with lies.

It is the reason why I research............and will continue 2.

Is it true? I'm sure about 2 find out.

I think what may be in dispute is if Alkebulan was the original name or among one of the assumed original names of Africa, before it was referred to in finality as Africa. I am open to more research from anyone here if they can find facts on this to confirm Africa's original name. [Edited 4/20/15 10:24am]

Since 99% of everything related 2 Kemet has been appropriated................everything we think we know should be look into.

Absolutely worth further research but the key is the ability to discern so I am glad to hear that you will continue investigating.

I was just doing some googling and some answers include that the concept of "Africa" is foreign in general and that we had different names for regions on the continent and it was outsiders who needed to label, name and divide.

I've also heard of people in places like Afghanistan who were shown a map and flag of thier country by foreigners and they said "Whats that?" - They are not pre-occupied with nationality on the level we are.

.

How about the concept of hyper nationalism and race is a very western one in general?

Absolutely.

I actually came across this while looking into something else.

Thought I'd share.

This is why I find that research of more than 2 or 3 sources is important.
