“Ancient West African contributions to Science and Technology with Robin Walker: Lecture, Discussion and Book Launch”
presented by Robin Walker in London 6th August 2013 19:00 
Timbuktu with its ancient West African university and 700,000 old manuscripts has been much in the news. What is in those manuscripts? What do they tell us about ancient West African science and technology?   This lecture and book launch addresses the role of early West Africa in the evolution of mathematics, astronomy, metallurgy, medicine & surgery, navigation, and architecture. Also at the seminar, Robin Walker ‘The Black History Man,’ will be launching his new book Blacks and Science Volume Two.   Come along to the lecture, discussion, and book launch. You will learn about:  
The West African ruler who explored the Atlantic Ocean to Central America 181 years before Christopher Columbus.The Timbuktu scholars who mapped the orbits of the planets 600 years ago.The Dogon thinkers who created ideas resembling big bang theory and parallel universes 700 years ago.The West Africans who pioneered the smallpox vaccine even before the era of the slave trade.How new dietary ideas such as ‘calorie restriction’ and the ‘fast diet’ are actually of ancient West African origins.

The Dogon myths tell the legend of the Nommos, who arrived in a  vessel  along with fire and thunder. After they arrived here - they put  out a  reservoir of water onto the Earth then dove into the water. There  are  references in the oral traditions, drawings and tablets of the  Dogons,  to human-looking beings who have feet but who are portrayed as  having a  large fish skin running down their bodies. The Nommos were more   fishlike than human and had to live in water. They were saviors and   spiritual guardians: “The Nommo divided his body among men to feed them;   that is why it is also said that as the universe “had drunk of his   body,” the Nommo also made men drink. He gave all his life principles to   human beings.” The Nommo was crucified and resurrected and in the   future will again visit the Earth, this time in human form. Similar   creatures have been noted in other ancient civilizations — Babylonia’s   Oannes, Acadia’s Ea, Sumer’s Enki, and Egypt’s goddess Isis.

African observers of the Universe and the Sirius question.

The complex knowledge knowledge of the Dogon of Mali about the Sirius (the brightest star in the night sky) star-system sent shock-waves around the scientific world. These west African people did not only plot the orbits of stars circling sirius but revealed the extraordinary nature of one of its companions - Sirius B - which they claimed to be one of the densest and tinniest of the stars in our galaxy. What is most astonishing about their revelations is that Sirius B is invisible to the unaided eye.

It wasn’t until the 20th century, of course, that Western astronomers finally proved the existence of Sirius B, which they found to be a white dwarf, smaller and heavier than Sirius as the Dogon had stated, and whose elliptical orbit caused the larger star to ‘wobble’.


Eurocentric scientists have attributed this knowledge to the presence of space-men (Robert Tempels), Jesuit priest (Kenneth Brecher) and european travelers among these, Africans, who, according to Brecher, “have no business knowing this”.

Hunter Adams III of the Argonne National Laboratory exposes the superficiality and racial arrogance of these claims. He points to the 700 year old antiquity of Sirius traditions among the Dogon aspects of which were shared by other black peoples.
