What I find interesting, if not ironic, is how many Rasta will acknowledge HIM as “God”, though he denied this. Proof is not required in this case. However, when we point out the more ancient Ethiopic lineage of HIM, dating long before Solomon, this gets questioned. Fair enough…
According to a document published by Regent Ras Tafari, he names every "Ethiopian" ruler since King Ori, 4530 BCE. Certain ancient texts mention "Ori-Anu" and there is, of course, the "Orit" or "Oreet" which is "ancient law."
