LOST Nation of Islam?

I happened across information about the Nation of Islam’s mythology recently. It never struck me before that one part of its teachings at one point involved an island on which a renegade scientist named Yakub who creates an inferior race that comes to dominate the planet. Whenever I hear “island” and a version of the name “Jacob” in close proximity, I inevitably think of the TV series LOST.

The Wikipedia article on Yakub also mentions that an author names Chi-Town Ben wrote a book, Yakub’s Grafted Devils, that supposedly features ideas of fate, time dividing “wheels”, and the importance of Gemini (i.e. twins).

Has anyone noticed these possible connections before? Has anyone explored them?

  • THE LOST:To break the restriction of a linear time sequence, the Lost need empirical data – uncorrupted, honest data. However, the Lost have filtered all their data with a scientific-religious presumption: a finite universe with a finite number of dimensions.The Lost do not understand, nor to they perceive their conflict with the Infinite Universe and the Infinite number of dimensions…"…nothing can be added to it, nor anything taken from it…"Best Regards,Frank HatchInitial Mass Displacements
