    Default Both sides of the story

    I was just briefly reading a thread in here about book titles, and I noticed an overwhelming amount of titles that seemed to suggest books based on a positive outlook of the black race, and really not a whole lot else. (I might be entirely wrong. This is just based on a quick scan of book titles).

    Now I really hate all this "black this, white that" bullshit, and I most certainly don't want this thread to go in the direction. What I wanted to discuss is the idea of when studying a subject, to look at "both sides of the story". For example, I recently read a book titled "Answers In Genesis", which was an attempt to prove the truth of the bible story using scientific evidence (and a pretty meager one at that). So shortly after, I decided to read a couple of books that discussed possible alternatives to the history of christianity as we know it, as well as contradictions and inconsistencies within the text of the bible.

    Sidenote: I still haven't found what I was truly after, which is a text that attempts to disprove the bible story through scientific evidence. I also recently read the Quran, and would be interested in any titles that either back up, or refute, the content of the book, if anybody could help me.

    Anyway, I'm not saying I do this with every topic I read up on, or that everyone should, but I do think that reading conflicting perspectives on a subject helps to give a broader understanding of the subject, as well as encouraging a not so bias personal view.

    Thought this might be interesting to discuss.

    For the Quran, read Why I am not a Muslim, I forget who it's by but it's pretty popular.

    I found alot of what he said biased, unthought out rubbish. But he does raise legitimate points about Islam.

    the thread starter is right, never take things on face value. I'm againts religion, but whatever u beleive in, make sure u believe in it because of something that's close to your heart, not because u go to the church or to the mosque and have become brainwashed. I stand firm behind my 5% Nation lessons because after I study them, I'll go and research for stuff that support what I'm studying with facts, discoveries (weather it be archiological or whatever), and things of that nature. I never take things on face value, just because somebody is teaching it to me or because my favorite rap group said so. Do The Knowledge (look, listen, observe)

    PEACE.

    peace.

    Beware of rhetoric..., and always...go check the author's background......

    go out...apply it to reality, compare and contrast..., keep an open mind.., conclude to what is accurate........, and even then...challenge that thought...., knowledge if infinite...and man is ignorant...

    don't stress all the Black glorification books.., there is a balance to everything, we get white glorification in our daily education....from a young age. Nothing wrong with it, it helps me to better understand certain things...., but like you...what about the other side to the story..?

    Regardless, maintain

    peace

    true indeed.

    Also I agree, accepting any one side of a things on face value alone will lead you astray from the truth.

    York got his info from a variety of sources. Instead of reading his interpretation, do the research your SELF.

    Can anybody else offer any titles on the subjects I mentioned?

    Also, I'm currently reading "Not out of Africa", which most of you are likely familiar with. For those who aren't, it is a book that attempts to refute Afrocentric beliefs. This is another topic of which I would like to get a brief overview from conflicting perspectives, so I was hoping somebody could recommend for me a good text that briefly covers the basic teachings of Afrocentrism. I'm not after a complex study of the subject, just a basic overview of it's main teachings. Maybe about 200-300 pages.
