The origin of life

The origin of life:    The elders say in creating man, all the constituents came from the soil. The part that was foreign was life, which had come from outer space in form of ostrich.

It is not known either how they had analyzed all the soil components to reach at that serious scientific conclusion. It should be remembered, physical and natural sciences, our modern tools of trade, cannot investigate what the elders hide under the “ostrich” symbol in creation. It should be noted, Mount Kenya is corruption of Mount Kirinyaga in Gikuyu meaning a Mountain with ostrich- Mountain with life or wisdom.
