Originally the term characterized the bulk of the Middle Ages, or roughly the 6th to 13th centuries,
The Dark Ages were ruled by “dark” people, or Moors. The Term Moor was one that applied to all said Negroid people during the Dark Ages and even after it, as a Global Genetic Identity. Just as today people of Negroid stock as said to be of African descent, prior to 1611 we were known as Moors, not as a Nationality, but as a Gene Pool.
History denotes the Dark Ages or (Middle Ages) as being a time of the decline of The Roman Empire, and European Caucasian people in general. The 6-13th centuries is about 700 years, but actually the Israelites began to Rise again (after being defeated in war by The Roman in 70 A.D.), somewhere around early to mid 200’s A.D.
The Time period in History from 517 B.C.-1492 A.D. is the Missing Link to rediscovering just who The People who have become known today as African Americans, West Indians, Native Americans, Latinos, Haitians, and other South Pacific Islander’s and Aborigines.
The Rule of The Israelites under the Moniker of The Moorish Empire was about 1,000 years, thus we had the Dragon chained up. After that 1,000 years of bond servitude of The Roman Empire to The Israelites, as the scripture prophecies, he must be loosed for a little season to go out and deceive the whole Earth. That period of the dragon being loosed began were the Dark Ages was ending, and moving into the Renaissance period.
King James Version (KJV)
1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
The Renaissance period up til present day is the little season that the Dragon has been deceiving the whole Earth. Deceiving the people of their true histories and Nationalities, but overall in just who the chosen people of The Most High Almighty actually are. During the Renaissance of The Period of Incorporation and Reconstruction of History, the Roman Empire was Reviving itself and began by white washing all the original artwork and historical records of the Nationalities of the peoples.
