Mr. Pipes,

Frist I would like to raise give honor to the Causeless Cause and Rootless Root from which all things have grown whom I choose to call Allah. I am a member of the Moorish Science Temple of America, Inc. located in Baltimore, Maryland at 1055 Milton Ave. Temple # 13. It is imperative that individuals who are writing or attempting to understand the inception, history, principles and creeds of the Moorish Science Temple of America, should seek to speak to a Moorish Scientist and interview them before writing a so-called investigative article/report such as yours. I commend my colleague, leader, and elder in the Moorish Science Temple of America, Inc. in responding to your article Sheik Ra Saddi-El, Chief Minister of the Moorish Science Temple

Mr. Pipes as a Moorish Scientist, Social Scientists and upright member of the Moorish Science Temple in my professional opinion, as a journalist in the matter of the or Great and Grand Organization of the Moorish Science Temple of America you have failed to implore the full measure of the Scientific Method. What is the scientific method: is a body of techniques for investigating phenomena, acquiring new knowledge, or correcting and integrating previous knowledge of America, Inc.? The chief characteristic which distinguishes the scientific method from other methods of acquiring knowledge is that scientists seek to let reality speak for itself . As a result I would implore you to visit us at the Moorish Science Temple of America to get your questions Answered correctly before presenting information based in de facto scientific validity and the opinions of those who are not qualified to make an assessment of the Moorish Science Temple of America, Inc. Please feel free to visit us so that you may be able to provide the public with a more sound, valid, and proven hypotheses than the hypothesis made in your article.

Submitted Respectfully

Sheik Melvin M. Velines-Bey, A.G.S., S.G.R., B.A., M.A.
