Five Percent is a splinter group of the Nation of Islam, Five Percent is also known as the Nation of Gods and Earths. That phrase refers to one of the basic tenets of the Five Percent movement: blacks are gods and women are earths.
Under Five Percenter doctrine, a member does not become fully divine until he or she has memorized every word of the Lost-Found Lessons and every serpentine twist of the divine sciences. Once this is achieved, then men take the name Allah and become Gods, and women take the name Earth -- hence the group's name.
