Akkadians mixed with sumerians who are canaanite and who are straight haired dravidians , the deity of the sumerians is Shiva , it is dravidians . The imliq who are the Amorites mixed with a people same as pure aboriginal people of North America , the native Americans have a distinct feature of their own , people have to realize if correct Chinese were in north America before columbus. Also the canaanites im referring to came from levant not siberia. And second wave of migration to north America came from siberia . Those people crossed the Bering straight. I hate to use the word but the aboriginals probably belong to this race of people , but they are not chinese not the ones originating from levant. I can can tell difference between aboriginal and chinese people. The original Phoenician and sumerians were of dravidian race . Have a good look at beduoins of jordan you can find the two features in the beduions dravidian and that amorite and those people do not look half chinese. arab of jordan arabs of jordan
Dravidian is a language of shadda , sun letters except letters v , p and o are used but not in Arabic. With all the schooling people do im surprised they haven't been able to open their eyes and see anything. The proof is found in the people . turkish he looks different than bedouins of jordan , the eye area. The arabs of jordan dont look part chinese or Japanese , no offense to anyone. The Hittites were Indo Aryan and the Kurds and Indians (india) are from hittite royalty. Amorites mixed with canaanite same as pure aboriginals of north America . THEY ARE DIFFERENT type canaanite people or race coming from mongoloid race doesnt mean they are Chinese.

Page 379 - But the peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race ; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it. If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth; if wrong, they lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error.
Page 379 - If all mankind, minus one, were of one opinion, and only one person were of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.
Page 423 - And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.
Page 380 - First: the opinion which it is attempted to suppress by authority may possibly be true. Those who desire to suppress it, of course deny its truth; but they are not infallible. They have no authority to decide the question for all mankind, and exclude every other person from the means of judging. To refuse a hearing to an opinion, because they are sure that it is false, is to assume that their certainty is the same thing as absolute certainty. All silencing of discussion is an assumption of infallibility.
Page 234 - Else why so swell the thoughts at your Aspect above ? Ye must be Heavens that make us sure Of heavenly love ! And in your harmony sublime ' I 'read the doom of distant time ; That man's regenerate soul from crime Shall yet be drawn, And reason on his mortal clime Immortal dawn.
Page 262 - Madonna, turning her mild face upward and opening her arms to welcome the divine glory ; but do not impose on us any aesthetic rules which shall banish from the region of Art those old women scraping carrots with their work-worn hands, those heavy clowns taking holiday in a dingy pot-house, those rounded backs and stupid weather-beaten faces that have bent over the spade and done the rough work of the world — those homes with their tin pans, their brown pitchers, their rough curs, and their clusters...
Page 264 - But she told me that, in all that she considered her best writing, there was a " not herself," which took possession of her, and that she felt her own personality to be merely the instrument through which this spirit, as it were, was acting.
Page 170 - That changed through all, and yet in all the same. Great in the earth, as in the ethereal frame, Warms in the sun, refreshes in the breeze, Glows in the stars, and blossoms in the trees; Lives through all life, extends through all extent, Spreads undivided, operates unspent...
Page 298 - Our inability to conceive Matter becoming non-existent, is immediately consequent on the nature of thought. Thought consists in the establishment of relations. There can be no relation established, and therefore no thought framed, when one .of the related terms is absent from consciousness.
Page 440 - ... the most ardent votary of science holds his firmest convictions, not because the men he most venerates hold them ; not because their verity is testified by portents and wonders ; but because his experience teaches him that whenever he chooses to bring these convictions into contact with their primary source, Nature — whenever he thinks fit to test them by appealing to experiment and to observation — Nature will confirm them. The man of science has learned to believe in justification, not...
