"Free and critical minds can emerge only by a return to the source-the primary sources. A free and critical mind takes nothing for granted and is not intimidated by "authorities" who frequently may be more confused than the general public. Free and critical minds seek truth without chauvinism or shame." - Dr. Asa G. Hilliard III (1)

“One single bit of information, if missing, incomplete, out of order or just plain wrong, has the potential to significantly alter thought processes, conclusions, decisions and behaviors, even when that one single logic entry exists in a sea of accuracy.”

Worldview Definition, Nicolaus Copernicus & Round versus Flat Earth Thinking Remains

“Worldview is a culture’s orientation toward God, humanity, birth, death, nature, questions of existence [religion], the universe, and cosmos.”(1) And history.

During a brief period of recent history, some people were sure the sun circles the Earth and that Earth was at the center of the universe. It doesn’t, and we aren’t."

According to historical fact dodgers, Nicolaus Copernicus was the first person to figure out Earth revolved around the Sun. Mr. Copernicus was born 1473 C.E. Over 5,500 years earlier, the civilization of Kemet developed a solar calendar.

A solar calendar is proof enough they knew Earth is not flat and not the center of the Universe but there's more. The Dogon people knew of the solar system and specific stars also. The Dogon also established the University at Sankore Mosque during the 1300's C.E. teaching many subjects including astronomy that covered and integrated the worldview of Earth and Universe.

Kemet had a map of Alkebu-lan (Africa) in almost its current shape that dates to 600 B.C.E. Herodotus, who went to Kemet in 457 B.C.E., used a rectangular map. He thought the end of Alkebu-lan was the southern end of where the Sahara is. He, and the European branch of the Alkebu-lan family tree had no concept of the rest of Alkebu-lan. (2)

The Adams Calendar in Monomotapa (South Africa) at least dates to 73,000 B.C.E which is tens of thousands of years before Stonehenge.

Despite ancient knowledge Earth was round and not the center of the Universe and despite Greek and Roman students of ancient teachings, somehow a worldview developed that was quite different from reality. That kind of fundamental worldview difference remains in so many essential areas.
