My roots date b@ck to The Arab Republic of Egypt πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡¬ which was built on war, violence, karma, love, drama, and a keen sense of awareness (IQ)

Am I Actually Religious? That is Irrelevant

For the sake of argument, clarity, and brevity, I am writing to you today to explain Why as opposed to Who, What, When, Where, etc. Also, please ignore my hash tags this post was originally intenteded to be published to my LinkedIn account.

Let Us Begin βšœοΈβš–οΈπŸ’―πŸ“œπŸ”

Now that we have the true intent of this article clearly established, let the finesse and flow begin (think oscillation here 🀟).

Earlier this year, I wrote a technical blog post about the current state of software (since I’m an anti scatter brain advocate aka #keepitsimplestupid). All was well upon drafting my initial revision, except...I consciously wrote the article from left to right in #English πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ, but☝🏿since I’m literally #Arabic/#Hebrew by nature (aka genomes are a thing β˜€οΈ), I subconsciously wrote the article from right to left in parallel out of frustration (too many frameworks, JavaScript fatigue, a lack of trust, experience, and foresight from junior πŸ“ˆ engineers and management 😷@ the time, etc.).

NOTE: At one point, the land that is currently occupied by the Saudis belonged to The Egyptians. Also, Saudi Arabia is one of only a few countries globally containing more than half a million people that speak #Filipino (if I have shared my #DNA 🧬 results with you then you know that is how I am part #Asian...or #Afroasiatic as it is formally called). I cheated a little bit when I implied that being Filipino means I'm Afro-Asiatic. If we are sticking to the true semantics of that terminology then I am actually Austroneasian. But guess what..."Austronesian" actually includes.....Africa!!! Yep..Madagascar πŸ‡²πŸ‡¬ is included. My true intent is to express that I'm Black and Asian (African + Filipino), but it's literally implied. There is such a strong, strong, strong correlation between these geographical areas that it isn't worth debating or clarifying (Egypt in of itself is one of only a few countries in Africa proper that contain a Filipino speaking populus...go figure, right?!?!!).

UPDATE: It's a bit misleading (The Filipinos like myself are still deep in this part of the not really but I'll be proper here for my own sake...yes...this history runs quite deep and has taken me years of research, plotting, studying, analysis, and conjectures to reach a formal conclusion) for me to outright assert that I'm Arabic as the Arabian Peninsula is adjacent to Egypt, but, the Arab conquests and wars displaced and segregated us internally to the extent that the majority of the country is Muslim. To be exact, I'm Nubian (many of us look alike) which is scoped more so to North Africa and its original inhabitants..a subset of my parents and ancestors...none other than...the great Amazighs.My Bantu ancestors and others come into play as well.

Se also the article from which details Egyptian history in great detail and is consistent with National Geographic's 1,000 Facts About Ancient Egypt πŸ“š.
