The United States Isn’t A Christian Nation, But A Nation of Many Different Beliefs

It is a nation of all; Muslims, Jews, Christians, Catholics, Atheists, Agnostics, and more. You can find plenty of religious beliefs, ethnicity, and languages in early Americas/America (U.S) and present. If you look at our nation’s capital; you’ll see the influence of many people, in its’ architect. That is if you actually take the time out to educate yourself  to be able to do that. Some people think they have some sort of exclusive ownership of our country, and mostly due to their own ignorance and self-indulgence when it comes to our collective history.
 

In 1492, Columbus had two captains of Muslim origin during his first voyage, one named Martin Alonso Pinzon the captain of the Pinta, and his brother Vicente Yanex Pinzon the captain of the Nina. They were wealthy expert ship outfitters who helped organize Columbus’ expedition and repaired the flagship Santa Maria. The Pinzon family was related to Abuzayan Muhammad III, the Moroccan Sultan of the Marinid Dynasty (1196-1465).

October 21, 1492, Columbus admitted in his papers that while his ship was sailing near Gibara on the northeast coast of Cuba, he saw a Mosque on the top of a beautiful mountain. Ruins of Mosques and minarets with inscriptions of Qur’anic verses have been discovered in Cuba, Mexico, Texas, and Nevada.”
In 1527, the Spanish explorer Panfilo de Narva’ez left Spain for the Americas. In his fleet he had five ships and six hundred people in his company. The expedition met with many hardships. Several ships were destroyed by a West Indies, hurricane and a group of Indians killed a large number of the remaining members of the party. Afterward, when only a few members of the expedition were left, Cabeza de Vaca, the former treasurer of Narva’ez took up the leadership of the remaining members of the party with Estevanico being among them.

To add on; there were free Black men/slaves accompanying the Spanish, some were Muslims, some Yoruba and some were Christian. The people who built the United States did not have one look, one belief, or one language. To believe that this is a Christian nation founded on exclusive European Christianity (Christianity wasn’t birthed in Europe), because of European settlers who helped create our government is asinine. It spats on the Native Americans, and the African slaves/free people.

Estevanico was called an Arab Negro, a Muslim who came from Azamore on the Atlantic Coast of Morocco. He was among the first two persons to reach the west coast of Mexico in an exploring overland expedition from Florida to the Pacific Coast. It’s reported that Estevanico acted as a guide and it took them nine years to reach Mexico City where they told stories of their travels.

In 1538, Estevanico lead an expedition from Mexico with Friar Marco, in search of the fabled Seven Cities of Cibolia, in which time he discovered Arizona and New Mexico. He was the first member of a different race reported to have visited the North Mexican Pueblos. He was killed in the city of Cibolia, one of the Seven Cities of the Zuni Indians, which is now New Mexico. Friar Marco, while following Estevanico’s trail to Cibolia, learned of his murder from an Indian messenger.

You can learn more about Estevanico/many others from this great book, and plenty of other sources.

So when I hear people tell me Jews, Muslims, Atheists, Buddhists, and others weren’t apart of the beginnings of our nation, it irks me. It irritates me, because it isn’t hard to pick up a book and read. It isn’t hard to learn about every fabric of our country that is stitched together.

Before one jumps to conclusions about what is American and what isn’t, do some research.

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get setup?

    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

      Sure; we created our own design and I have to ask C.J how much did he pay, but it wasn’t a lot of money. We will be adding more features though that will give more of a cost, but let me see what we’ve paid for and then I will get back to you in further detail.

      If you need help in designing, I wouldn’t mind helping you. I would recommend having a unique design that is of your own, that shows your style, your personality, and represents what your blog is about.

      What do you want your blog to be about?

      It only cost me originally about 18 dollars for the domain and it was bumped up to 26 dollars for the privacy. What really costs money are themes. If you want your site to look unique, it’ll cost anywhere from 40 – 70 dollars. Independent and freelance designers are always an option. Thankfully Latti is a pretty good designer so there’s no need for us to purchase one. When you’re buying features (more space, no adds, videos, etc, etc) that’s when it adds up.

      email me at contact@sincereignorance.com for more information. I can send you a picture of the prices and you can see for yourself. Most are completely optional.

      Thanks for commenting. We’re doing a podcast soon and one of the main topics will be business, so Latti and I will probably cover what goes into something like this.
