THE ROLE OF THE TRUTH SEEKER IS CHOSEN BY THE CREATOR.
A WRITER WILL DIE BUT HIS WORK WILL LAST FOR AN ETERNITY
Carl A. Patton is a freelance writer. He published “Big Ralph: Reflections of a Black Police Chief,” in 1997, “The Cry of Humanity,” a collection of poems by Patton and his sister Catherine with a CD narrative was published in 2006 and “Fallen Letters: Mis-education and Intellectual Confusion (Essays on the Black Experience)” was published in 2007. He has authored three other books on the history of Chattanooga, Tennessee King Cobra (unpublished) deals with aspects of the Civil War up to the turn of the century. Patton has also written an autobiographical history of Chattanooga (1945-1980) also unpublished. He began his writing career in 1986 when his doctoral dissertation concerning a history of Black involvement in the electoral arena in Chattanooga, Tennessee was rejected.
The rejection and dispute with this research began in 1982 when Patton became a doctoral candidate. The rejection of the research further revealed to Patton his role to critique society. His experiences in the Atlanta University Political Science Department (now known as Clark) also convinced Patton to become an unyielding independent thinker. This experience further revealed to Patton that there is very little evidence of academic freedoms in many colleges and universities. Academic freedoms are denied independent thinkers and often because of race, sex and religion. Patton's doctoral research is now entitled The Black Conspiracy: The Rise and Fall of a Commission Form of Government. Patton argues that many aspects of racism would not exist in the United States if not for the conspiracy of many Blacks in the leadership ranks.
Patton also writes extensively about various serious Biblical concerns and questions. Thus he has written several books on questions like Tithing and Giving, Cremation, Healing and many of the false assumptions and distortions regarding Biblical reality.
