Great Quotations

"CHURCH BUSINESS, THE BEST BUSINESS.
Every available space in Benin City is now being taken over by churches. Not by cottage, small or medium scale enterprises/industries. Yet every year we turn out graduates from our tertiary institutions. Every now & then poor parents begged borrowed or stole to see their children through school. It is as if church owners are praying and/or waiting for industries to wind up so that they can build the house of "God business" therein. From Downtown Sapele Road to Ugbowo & to every nook & cranny of d City, d story is d same. Now, what hope does this portent for d future of employment in our society, knowing that govt. alone cannot employ our teeming youths seeking employment out there?" -- Hon G N Agharese

"Christianity is a money making and masses control religion while the Bible is m.c.m mind control manual.Jesus never physically walk this earth.its high time black Africans who were the first to practice real spirituality stopped defending what the oppressors of their ancestors and the inventors of racism wrote in a book.let the Jews defend Judaism with proofs, let the Europeans defend christianity with proofs and let the Arabs defend Islam with proofs.African defenders of foreign faiths where is your own spirituality and which Jew, European or Arab that is defending African spirituality ?. Wise up people and defend only your ancestry." - Samson Montana

"The great benefit of science is that it can contribute tremendously to the alleviation of suffering at the physical level, but it is only through the cultivation of the qualities of the human heart and the transformation of our attitudes that we can begin to address and overcome our mental suffering... We need both, since the alleviation of suffering must take place at both the physical and the psychological levels." - Dalai Lama

--------------------------------

"We want to stand upon our own feet and look fair and square at the world -- its good facts, its bad facts, its beauties, and its ugliness; see the world as it is and be not afraid of it. Conquer the world by intelligence and not merely by being slavishly subdued by the terror that comes from it. The whole conception of God is a conception derived from the ancient Oriental despotisms. It is a conception quite unworthy of free men. When you hear people in church debasing themselves and saying that they are miserable sinners, and all the rest of it, it seems contemptible and not worthy of self-respecting human beings. We ought to stand up and look the world frankly in the face. We ought to make the best we can of the world, and if it is not so good as we wish, after all it will still be better than what these others have made of it in all these ages. A good world needs knowledge, kindliness, and courage; it does not need a regretful hankering after the past or a fettering of the free intelligence by the words uttered long ago by ignorant men. It needs a fearless outlook and a free intelligence. It needs hope for the future, not looking back all the time toward a past that is dead, which we trust will be far surpassed by the future that our intelligence can create."-- By Bertrand Russell 

---------------------------------------------

 

"We must give up that silly idea of folding our hands and waiting upon God to do everything for us. If God intended that, He would not have given us a mind, He would not have given us intelligence, He would not have given us his soul, He would not have placed us here in the midst of creation, and sorrounded us with all the beautiful things of nature. What so ever you want in life you must make your mind to do it for yourself and accomplish it for yourself whether it is rearing a home, expanding an empire, if you want to do it you must do it for yourself and then God will bless the effort because he will realise that you are using your intelligence for the BEST." - Marcus Garvey

-----------------------------------

"I was created to think for myself first and foremost. I can thereafter decide to take a little from your ideas, If I like, and incorporate it in mine. My brain was created to critically analyze issues and situations. That's why I was created. Use your GOD given brains and emotions and THINK." - Akhigbe Ikhilor

-(via facebook forum)

-----------------------------------

"Our God is no filth but ecclesiastical... Just we've been nurtured in ignorance...witnessed in ignorance, crusading ignorantly ignorance...No man shares his god,every good god is a secret.. you factually don't become a Jew because you believe in Judaism and you can't become a Christian because you believe in Christ...The African is not a christian or a moslem but a trado-environmentalist...A man who insults his god has no Shadow..I am the adherent to my forefathers custom and tradition..Be like or alike.." - Osakhiwuomwan Gabriel Ehioghiren (via facebook)

---------------------------------------------

"there is no God or Devil,but there is Good and Evil. What the white man did was to take away 1 o from Good and called it God and added D to evil and called it Devil,so you will no-longer blame him for his evil and instead blame the devil he created and he inturn say's the Devil made me do it. Wise up people,wake up from your slumber dream,the truth is out there,but you only see it,if you are searching for the truth,the Bible said seek and ye shall find."

. -- By Nosa Idehen [via facebook]

"Mind can be the enemy and mind can also be the friend. 
It is the mind that binds and it is the mind that liberates. 
When the mind is attached to objects, which are transitory and impermanent, this is the mind that binds. This is the mind that is an enemy. But a mind that does not abide anywhere, on any object, is a mind that is your friend. This is the mind that liberates. It all depends on you, on what kind of company you keep in your mind".
-- Gilles Chamboraire

--------------------------------------------------------

 

''God doesn't exist ! It is the myopic egotism of man that says God created man in His own image..! Does God have 1 head 2 eyes, two legs etc? God didn't create the world in 7 days, heaven is not in the skies.. there are myriads of planets, universes, galaxies and cosmic bodies out there, God didn't create man in one day! And follow the examples of some of these guys who have given most of their cash to practical humane charities rather than enriching pastors and building churches and mosques that God CAN'T LIVE in !'' - Greg Oshobugie. (Via facebook)

-----------------------------------------------------------

Typical Nigerian mentality "only God will help us" "only God can touch our leaders so they realize what they're doing". If there is a God he's forgotten about Africa a long time ago. God cannot do anything for you, stop wasting your time and resources praying to a deity that cannot answer or help you. Nigerians you need to take matter into your hands and revolutionize this "banana republic" government because you are your only hope not God... – Jack White.

--------------------------------------------------------

"I have talked to many Christian fanatics,,especially the Nigerian version,.(like these blind folded sheeps) and realize that they use religion as a security blanket,when there is no hope to resolving their social-economic problems. The worst part about their religion is the fact, that it was based on greed and control.The hard facts and our own common sense should have buried this myth a long time ago.The problem about this bondage is like any smart scam .Christianity is able to morph like an evolving disease.most of the time Christianity is administered at an early age (much like immunization)
once its instilled in a young carrier at such an impressionable age its very hard to shake.However,we are well equipped to debunk,diagnose this mental virus! How can we possibly know where we are going when we do not know where we have been.Christianity is not a religion its a business." - Oguega Eziza Igodomigodo (Via Facebook forum)

-----------------------------------------------

Proverbs 6:16-19 ESV:
There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.

------------------------------------

"African Gods different from Jehovah and Yahwee.
Osanobua is not the father of bastard jesus, Osanobua is the father of the three Ogisos. Abasi has no connection to joseph's wife, Abasi had a wife Atai, that gave him 2 lovely kids. Eledumare didn't have any relationship with Joseph, Jecob, Isaiah, Isaac, Eledumare only send Oduduwa to deliver his message. Chukwu is not Jehovah or Yahwee, Chukwu believe in using home pets like dog and goat to deliver humanity his message. According to classics and mythology All the African Almighty Gods have nothing in common with Jewish-Arab Almighty Gods and they have no relationship with bible, quran and toran. The idea that some illegitimate son of some jewish idol died for an African man is absurd. I wish to distant myself and my kinsmen from that absurdity. You don't tell a jewish or an european man that the son of some African god died for their sin. Honestly it is an insult to tell me a foreign bastard died for me and my people. "Osanobua had no relationship with Joseph's wife, he is unconnected to David, Jecob, Samual, but has a strong relationship with all the Obas of Bini Kingdom and the daughters and sons of Igodomigodo, Osanobua is the God of all who embodies the virtues of the ogisos. Hence it is ridiculous for anyone to pray to Osanobua and be saying in the name of Jesus, because Osanobua needs no jesus to get to you or anyone." - Wake up son!. " - Friday R Inoyo

--------------------

"ORIGIN OF THE NAME ISRAEL OR ISRAELITES.
There were no group of people called the Israelis or Israelites in times of old. All we had then were the Hibarous or Hebrews.
Those claiming to be Israelis today living in the state of Israel are actually European Ashkenazi who subscribe to the Hebrew religion of Judaism .
The name ISRAEL originated from the AGIA TRIADOS,TRIA DEI OR THE THREE GODS(HOLY TRINITY) OF ISIS wife of OSIRIS, RA the Egyptian Sun God and EL a major near east God or Semitic ELOHIM.
IS = ISIS, OSIRIS, an Egyptian powerful goddess,
RA = RA, AMUN RA ,Egyptian sun god and 
EL = EL, ELOHIM, god of power,amazing wealth ( EL-ITES, the ELITE club )
IS-RA-EL = ISRAEL, ISRAELIS,ISRAELITES.
" - 
Efosamson Asemontana

--------------------------------------------------

"Africans should stop worshipping this white man picture, what nonsense! I called this mental slavery. why on earth will Africans worship a white man image and called him Jesus. during Jesus days on earth was there anything like camera? if NO then how did they get this picture? the guy in that photo is just a mere actor and now almost all the Africans homes and place of worships got this guy photo and they worshipped his image and called him Jesus. if Africans don't stop this mental slavery then there's no way Africa can move forward."

-------------------------------------------------

"Religion is a slave mentality.
Religious fundamentalism is used by the rulers of society to distract citizens from their inherent corruption. Religion inspires hatred and wars, crusades and genocides. Religious fundamentalism is a violent idea that is inherent in all religions. Religion keeps you focus on superstitions instead of the real life injustices that you face each day. Religion destroys the desire for freedom. Religion is used to turn you into a spellbound fool. Religion is a corporation and you're the one that keeps it from going bankrupt with your delusional faith. The wealthy want you to believe in god's goodness, so that you may not look at their inherent rottenness. Stop praying and start thinking revolution, freedom, a bold new humanity."

"What has make this so called religion win the minds of our brother and sisters today is nothing but structure.
We are on a "psychological warfare"
I have said this here so many times.

Is either we eqiuped ourselves and dive into the war or better live it alone the way it is.because going inside without been eqiuped is just like sucide.

What am trying to say is this.
In Bene Republic where I have been few times,89 percent practice Africa spirituality.why? How?
It just because it is more organized.
So we that claim now we know that religion is shit,we must unite,organize and eqiuped our system with some psychological and metaphysical ingredients to make our food sweet...
We have to unite everyone and put what we have together to male our thing look nice.

That why you see pastors spending so much money on musical instrument.so that the music you hear there will stimulate and programme your Brain to that every sunday worship. It is a mind game.
And we most be wise if not we will just deppopulate ourselves for nothing and the international body offcures will give support and solidarity to the church..." - Nosa Duke

"When we talk adding financial value in our land, we have to be willing to confront religion. It is a major drain on us, because, our works are translated into cash and the cash finds its way to religious institutions that adds minimal or exchangeable (we can invest in counseling centers o motivational speaking centers) value. Our money also finds a way to leave us to foreign lands, thus our sweat and blood.

What I continue to find amazing is the fact that christians refuse to see a basic fact, Palestine with a capital in Jerusalem was under Roman occupation when Jesus lived. And Apostle Paul wrote from a prison. Translation; "turn the other cheek when slapped in one" maybe a survival message under a brutal occupation. "We wrestle not against flesh and blood" may also mean a reference to the occupiers at the time. "I am not here to unite, but to scatter......." (Jesus Christ), may also be a reference to the occupiers. We did see the result of Jesus "civill disobedience," the ultimate fall of the Roman Empire. We are also witnesses to Dr. King, Mandela, Gandhi, ........, and our very own Gani Fawehimi (the fall of Abacha.

We can win this war as a people without firing a single shot, "yes we can." What I believe is important is our ability to be critical in our assessment of things, we have to cultivate a new culture reading between the lines. This is when I know we can begin to self propel and start defining who we are as a people.

I do not come against anything that gives anyone joy, you can belong to any religious sect you choose. What I advocate is, use of your natural endowment; your brain." -- Joseph Edigin,

Voodoo sacrifice in the Christian Bible.

Leviticus 14

14 And the priest shall take some of the blood of the trespass offering, and the priest shall put it upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot:

49 To purify the house he is to take two birds and some cedar wood, scarlet yarn and hyssop.
50 He shall kill one of the birds over fresh water in a clay pot.
51 Then he is to take the cedar wood, the hyssop, the scarlet yarn and the live bird, dip them into the blood of the dead bird and the fresh water, and sprinkle the house seven times.
52 He shall purify the house with the bird’s blood, the fresh water, the live bird, the cedar wood, the hyssop and the scarlet yarn.
53 Then he is to release the live bird in the open fields outside the town. In this way he will make atonement for the house, and it will be clean. Be wise, and return back to your ancestors

" Religion is one of the forms of spiritual oppression which everywhere weighs down heavily upon the masses of the people, over burdened by their perpetual work for others, by want and isolation. Impotence of the exploited classes in their struggle against the exploiters just as inevitably gives rise to the belief in a better life after death as impotence of the savage in his battle with nature gives rise to belief in gods, devils, miracles, and the like. Those who toil and live in want all their lives are taught by religion to be submissive and patient while here on earth, and to take comfort in the hope of a heavenly reward. But those who live by the labour of others are taught by religion to practise charity while on earth, thus offering them a very cheap way of justifying their entire existence as exploiters and selling them at a moderate price tickets to well-being in heaven. Religion is opium for the people. Religion is a sort of spiritual booze, in which the slaves of capital drown their human image, their demand for a life more or less worthy of man."...Vladimir Lenin

I can safely and confidently state it was not failing strength that led Pope Benedict into deciding to resign his office on FEbruary 28.
He was compelled to do so by the powerful Italian Old Guard Cardinals who are the real bosses at the Vatican because they were extremely upset by what they considered heresy in his recent book in which he claimed Jesus was not born in a hangar with a donkey present, and December 25th was not his birthday. The Old Guard Italians were afraid Benedict might in future attack other cherished myths of the RC on which the power of the Roman Church rests, such as the infallibility of the Pope.
Meanwhile, as usual, I monitored for a while Max TV Channel broadcast this morning of gospel singing to look for items worth commenting on. There was this young fellow called Tauren Wells whose number was Royal Tailor, Inspiration in which he talked and then did somersaults in the air. I am asking you what has somersaults got to do with God and Jesus ? Then there was some jazzy stuff from Kurt Carr Singers which had some of the audience darting their heads like Wharf Snakes.

They effeminized the Afrikan mind with homosexuality and religiousity, for over a 1,000 years. "If animals do not kiss humans" unless they've been programmed and tortured too, what will happen after an entire milenium goes by? Does a homosexual gene become dominate in those victims? DoeDoes the audacity to fight such a dominate enemy become the order of the day? Or is it something thats been implanted into the victims of CHILD ABUSE/WHITE SUPREMACY that makes them synonymous with an animal that been sexually abused from beastiality?
Religion is the organization of spirituality into something that became the hand maiden of conquerors. Nearly all religions were brought to people and imposed on people by conquerors, and used as the framework to control their minds.~Dr. John H. Clarke

7 Reason why Religion is a Mental Disorder :

(1) Hallucinations - the person has invisible friends who (s)he insists are real, and to whom (s)he speaks daily, even though nobody can actually see or hear these friends

(2) Delusions - the patient believes that the invisible person has magical powers to make them rich, cure cancer, bring about world peace, and will do so eventually if asked.

(3) Denial/Inability to learn - though the requests for world peace remain unanswered, even after hundreds of years, the patients persist with the praying behavior, each time expecting different results

(4) Inability to distinguish fantasy from reality - the beliefs are contingent upon ancient mythology being accepted as historical fact.

(5) Paranoia - the belief that anyone who does not share their supernatural concept of reality is "evil," "the devil," "an agent of Satan"

(6) Emotional abuse - ­ religious concepts such as sin, hell, cause feelings of guilt, shame, fear, and other types of emotional "baggage" which can scar the psyche for life

(7) Violence - many patients insist that others should share in their delusions, even to the extent of using harassment and violence.

The best and shortest road towards knowledge of truth [is] Nature. - Ancient Kemet Proverb (From the Outer Temple)
If you are searching for a Neter, observe Nature! - Ancient Kemet Proverb (From the Outer Temple)
We mustn't confuse mastery with mimicry, knowledge with superstitious ignorance. - Ancient Kemet Proverb (From the Inner Temple)
Always watch and follow nature. - Ancient Kemet Proverb (From the Inner Temple)
Remember that most of the major religions (Christianity, Judaism, Islam) are only less than 7000 years old. The world exist for more than millions of years.
Babies are taught & raised by their parents, what their parents believed & lived for! Therefore, it's something you inherit from your ancestors, they were taught certain things based on their religion & they transferred it to their children.
But nature exist waaay longer than that and proof itself... No one tell you to believe what I believe... I say parents need to stop forcing imaginary beliefs or religion upon their children. It is a pandemic disease plaguing our Nations. Do your research and educate yourself.
