The topic of religion has constantly surprised the world with weird discoveries. The tenets and practices of some religious movements have always got us wondering where on earth they got their inspiration. A good example is a religious movement known as “Nuwaubianism” that believes women existed for many generations before men were created.
Founded by Malachi Z. York in 1967, Nuwaubianism is a Black Muslim group that originated from New York. The all-black movement has gone through several reformations since its inception, which has almost eliminated all traces of Islam.
In 1993 the group relocated from New York to Putnam County in Georgia where their sacred site was built. Unfortunately, this place was abandoned and later demolished after their supreme leader Malachi Z. York was arrested and sentenced to 123 years in prison over crimes involving child molestation and financial misconduct
One of the most intriguing aspects of this movement is their religious belief that women have been in existence for many years before men. Adherents of Nuwaubianism believe female folks have been existing for many generations before they created men through genetic manipulation.
This unusual belief depicts women as the ancestors of men against many popular notions. Though Nuwaubians have this belief, there is however no public evidence that women are accorded positions of prominence within their circle.
The arrest of their Supreme leader in 2004 brought a major setback to the activities of this movement. This, however, lasted for just some time, as followers have since continued with their religious activities, calling for the freedom of their leader.
Analyzing the claim by this religious movement, that women existed for ages before they created men through genetic manipulations, do you see this as a fact or a mere illusion?
