I once thought that the Western Christendom was critical of him because of his ethnicity; being the son of Ham, or from the father of the dark skinned people of the world. However, I have now come to conclude that Nimrod is vilified in the West, not because he was black, but because the men who sit in the “pantheon of the gods,” directing the path of civilization do not want anyone to emulate the most brilliant man who ever lived. Can you imagine the social revolution if the same generation of men wanting to “be like Mike,” began to yearn to be like Nimrod or Einstein or Dr. King?
Therein lies the plan to deify the entertainer – it reduces the possibility that someone from the inner city, or middle America, or the Bible Belt will make the next civilization changing discovery. Imagine the collateral damage if little Johnnie from S.E. Washington discovered a way to burn water in an internal combustion engine: First, you would basically be able to drive for free, but second and more important to the men in the pantheon is that it would do away with the need for gasoline use in most engines, wiping away trillions of dollars in revenue.
