Just as their is no Superman, their isn't any messiah, past-present or future

I speak from experience, for about 5 years in the late 60s and early 70s I was a member of the NOI-Nation of Islam founded by Fard Mohammed and led by Elijah Mohammed for decades afterwards. Like the former Malcolm Little X, I came to see the deception in the organization and deviation for actual Islam, unlike el Hajj Makik Shabazz who after leaving went to Mecca and discovered universal Islam and founded his own US based organization and followed universal Islam til his assasination, I went on a 10 years study of world religions and theology as a whole, One of the main reasons I left it was obvious that Louis Farrakhan was being grooomed as his replacement and many of us open minded-progressive members could see he was bad news, even Mohammed son's left the NOI and founded a universal islam mosque still growing 30 plus years later.

The NOI is an aberration of Islam as are many extreme sects of major religions including christianity and judaism I applaud the social upliftment, self respect and educational aspect of the NOI but their dogma is bordering on offensive to inteligence and science, sound familiar?
