"'This day have I Conventanted with you (with blood), for you are my people, and I am your God.' These words were addressed to the first man - a black man - and pledged the black race to the continuance of God's religion. The Old and New Testaments are documents on black history and religion. Jesus, Mary, the Apostles were all black people. Samson 'had orisha or saint…power' which allowed him to lift up the gates of Gaza. Peter's symbolic keys - the religious code which entitled him to the bishopric of the early Catholic Church - are for Titi, (an afrocentric scholar) documents stolen from Paul, an African, when he fell along the road to Damascus. These documents contained the lays of African religion. Although the Catholic Church denies its derivation from African religion, the link is manifest in the frequency with which Catholics 'fall to the drum', that is, become possessed by African deities…In its details, Titi's interpretation of Judeo-Christianity may be unique, but black nationalism asserting African religious and cultural primacy has a long and research-worthy history."

They always teach Santeria, vodou, Obeah and other Creole religions in the Caribbean as being African derived mixed with Euro-religions in order to survive colonial repression. But what if the European Peninsula was the original site of Creolization, in that prostetantism, catholicism, judaism and the like were derivations of African religious systems? Could we finally then put Hybridity theory and syncretism to rest?
