My "raging" fascination with religion... 'causes and effects'

Published on Fri, Jan 04 2013 by tobafolaranmi
1st of all, I think religion is the most fascinating subject of all, partly because the range of its influence and level of impact on society, but also due to it’s sheer incredulity and most spectacularly, its fantastic fatalistic approach to, and view of life.
 
Now I’d rather study it though, than worship it, I just can’t worship ‘graven images’, under whatever guise.
 
And to all those “gods of men” out there, trying to sell idolatry to me in one form or the other (under the fantastic fatalistic promise of a ‘wonderful’ heaven only accessible in death), I say, though shall not tempt thy Lord your God, or know ye not that I and the father are one?
 
Can anyone of you save your own selves? Don’t you all hire expensive security details to protect your lives and property? Who the hell are you fooling then???
 
The era of fleecing the ignorant “sheeple” is fast coming to a natural end (for all such enterprises built on lies and deceit), brood of vipers! What have you contributed to the uplifting of the society, besides uplifting corruption and “corruptocrats”? To the economy besides deducting 10%? To the polity besides anointing criminality and fraud?
 
How come your coffers are getting larger in direct proportion/correlation with the rising incidences of poverty in every society you operate in? Why do you quote that silly Malachi (3:8-10) verse all the time, and yet conveniently ignore all the other “kill all the women and children” instructions in the old testament?
 
And as for those “Nirabian” ‘islamic businessmen’, promoting Islam for profit and faking visions and revelations, selling prayers, in furtherance of the destruction of all that originally defined the proud and beautiful African cultures of your fore-bearers, you’re an even more pitiful lot (SMH), can’t your twisted selves see what these foreign imports have turned your fellow Nigerians/Africans into? You import toothpicks while atheists help you put satellites in space, loan you money, develop your infrastructures, handle your security, and produce the vast majority of what you consume? What a wonderful god you serve indeed, why don’t you beg him/it to give your president just common sense? Would I not readily and justifiably worship such a god?
 
Africans (Nigerians in particular) pride themselves on being an intelligent people, I think its about time we all started taking it beyond the rhetoric can we start using our brains please, somebody???
 
The American declaration of independence and the subsequent successful struggle for the actualization of same had a few distinguished characters at its head, but we all know it was the masses who did the actual fighting, and dying…and therefore, it was they who earned the victory, and with that, a genuine right to liberty. The black man today would rather pray his way to freedom, ‘interestingly’, is it a wonder that nothing is getting any better in Nigeria?
  
The ancient black man however, did more with his mind than his brawn (which was not lacking either), he was in fact, the author of the world around him, and parts of the indisputable proof of this remains, unmovable (and therefore burglary proof), in Egypt, even till this very day. Or is the genius of the giant Egyptian pyramids in any doubt? Has modern Western technology been able to confound or fully decipher/comprehend it yet?
 
Wake up black man, wake up Nigerian, question all things and stop falling “mugu” to every foreign “maga”, if you must worship a god create your own, must you be ‘spoon fed’ every single thing? Must you consume everything? Can you produce nothing of value?
 
What is Africa’s corporate competitive global market strategy today? Europe has its Euro-centric leaders and policies, Asia has its own FUBU (“for us by us”) policy mechanisms, even the Arabs rigorously pursue their Arab world domination fatalistic fantasies through the aggressive propagation of their mass mind control program, Islam.
 
How come Africa also has Euro-centric and Arab-centric leaders and policies too? Is it not because of the several generations of Africans that have been brain-washed from birth to literally worship their competitors, rather than compete with them?
 
What is left of the original great, beautiful, noble, and industrious post-islamic Hausa culture and traditional/ancient belief systems in northern Nigeria, for instance? Today, traditional Hausa pleasantries are done in Arabic, even in Nigeria/Africa, how confused can the black man get!
  
Africa’s greatest single developmental challenge is mental/psychological, not at all material, it only manifests as identity crisis, its true/original cause is indicated by the persistent clashes between Africans (Nigerians especially, though one of many) where they harm and even kill each other the defence of foreign cultural ideals which have in reality nothing to do with them or their well-being, toxic religious indoctrination.
 
Going forward, it is encouraging to note that slowly but surely, the African Lions are re-emerging, after many millennia of celestial sleep Kemet re-awakens to ask questions of her adulterous and idolatrous children, who have all turned their hearts to foreign gods (wisdom), and have forsaken the gods (wisdom) of their ancestors….look how far the once almighty African has fallen?
 
Has their folly been punished enough by the abject state of everything African today, or not? I’ll let the sheeple tell it. And how much longer will this identity confusion, and the associated foreign assaults, rape, pillaging, and plunder continue? Again, only the sheeple can decide.
 
There is a king in you black man, there is a queen in you black woman, but your crowns of glory have been lost to ignorance, even to your ignorance of your very own self. It takes courage to be yourself, and if you’re not yourself you can only be anything, or everything, either way you’re worthless if you’re not you.
 
Only you can emancipate yourself from this mental slavery, and all it takes is the courage to ask questions of all you do not understand, and never accept an answer in faith but as a provable and established fact, the 1st step is always the most complicated, release the royalty in you Kemite.
 
Let there be light in the heart of humanity, Ase wa!

Provocative to the core; so many thought waves to catch and explore here. Question, if a student but not a practitioner of religion, does that make one an atheist? I have nothing against atheism, it's my religion of choice but it helps to be appreciating of where each person/view is coming from.
