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 ." - 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."

"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.

#Apparently.

China is currently the world's leading economic power, in China there is Zero Church!

Finland has the most stable economy in the world today. There are less than twenty churches in Finland!

Switzerland has the second most stable economy in the world.
Switzerland has fewer than thirty churches!

Denmark is the third most stable economy in the world, there are about 23 churches in Denmark.

These countries are considered to have the highest number of atheists, but they are blessed!

Come to Africa, there are more than 10,000 churches per region including 4,000 churches in the city of Yaoundé alone!

4100 churches in the only city of Abidjan!

7000 churches in the only city of Kinshasa!

10,000 churches in the only city of Kumasi and Accra in Ghana!
only, which is four hundred and thirty times more numerous than the whole of Switzerland!

In Africa, we have more churches than schools and hospitals combined!

More pastors than doctors.

Everyone is born again!

Everyone is covered with the blood of Jesus!

Jesus even became the husband of all single women (according to them) in revival churches!

Everyone is filled with the Holy Spirit!

However, none of these claims reflect the moral elevation that is hoped for in a society.

We are among the laziest, the most deceiving, the most corrupt, the most hypocritical, the most hateful on the planet today, with all our Jesus and the Holy Spirit!

"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

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

"Christianity and Islam create dichotomy between ‘Gods’ and humans to foster the master or select elite syndrome, to numb followers, to raise a loyal tribe of mindless servants, useful as idiots. . Islam de-humanizes Africans. Arabs are the most implacable and rabid Black haters on earth. Arabs call Africans abd (abeed), meaning, their ordained slaves. Islam, is their camouflage instrument of coercion, a comprehensive, abeed numbing, brainwashing, entrapping, mass breeding, lethally intoxicating concoction. . The Qur'an distinguishes between races by discriminating against Africans. There is a strong legacy of racism against Africans from early Arab-Islam because the language, traditions, and customs of the Arabs, support the down grading of the African race. Arabs’ attitude to Blacks derives from Genesis’ racist fiction about Noah’s sons." - Naiwu Osahon

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

"A mystical priestess was interviewed in her village Akan in Baoule country (Ivory Coast) and asked" How could God let such horrors occur? "(The destruction of Africa and its people by the Arabs and the whites)
This priestess gave an answer as profound as insightful ..
She said, "I think God has been deeply saddened by all this, at least as much as we have, but for centuries we have been telling God to come out of our lives. Because, by practicing the religion of the Arabs and the whites, we fortify the egregore of their Ancestors and at the same time we weaken the egregore of the Black People.
How can we expect our Ancestors to give us their blessing and protection if we insist on praying to the White and Arab Ancestors? "
Regarding recurrent events, (African invasions, genocides, Arab-Islamic slave trade, European slave trade, colonization, wars of Islamization and Christianization, destruction of spirituality, culture, science, traditions and African technologies, looting of Africa, Falsification and Appropriation of the Prestigious History of Africans, Human Guinea Pigs, Organ Trafficking, Rape, etc ...)
Those who practice the Muslim or Christian religion have said that we should no longer
to practice our Spirituality Traditions and Culture in the name of negrophobic prophets.
Because according to these same Africans, to practice our Spirituality, our Traditions and Cultures, belong to witchcraft, Satanism ... according to them it is diabolical and demonic.
In African Spirituality, the respect of all that God, Omniscient Omnipresent Omnipotent, is its essence.
These Africans decree that an Arab or white expert should know what he is talking about on our behalf no matter what he tells us and we must say YES.
Now we wonder why our children do not have conscience, why they do not differentiate between right and wrong, why they can without emotion kill, have sexual practices deviant unnatural, consume alcohol, Drugs.
Probably by deep reflection, we will come to the conclusion that this has to do with the principle of "harvest what we sowed"!
It's funny how simple it is for us Africans to reject our ancestors and then ask why we are vulnerable, why we have become the laughingstock of other peoples, why all the other people make us what they are want, Our continent this Paradise that God has bequeathed to us has become a hell, so much so that we believe everything that the media and their "specialists" of Africa say and we continue to move away and abandon our Villages which are our Sanctuary.
We are questioning more than ever everything our Spirituality says.
It's funny to see that we can send biblical messages by Facebook or phone that spread like wildfire but when we send messages about God from our Ancestors, people do not even think about sharing them.
It is funny to see that shameless, crude, vulgar and obscene articles spread so easily and freely, but public discussions about our Spirituality are banished within our families, schools and businesses.
And I will not be surprised that you will not read this message in its entirety, and you will probably not send it to many people in your address book because you do not know what they believe in or what they will think of you.
It's really unfortunate to see that we care more about what people think of us
Share this message. Given the scale of the damage .... it is worth it.
If you throw it away, no one will know it except your conscience and God!
But if you throw this process of reflection, do not complain about the bad state of the world in which we live and the bad state of Africa! " - copied

The missionaries that helped in the translation of Edo language Bible, why didnt they translate their scientific books in Edo language?
Knowledge is acquired by experience or learning not a gift of any God. Human life is evolving, as world populations grows so the knowledge and discoveries of humans grows.
Facebook, twitter, instagram, blogspots, infact the internet is expanding knowledge in our today world. We discovering new methods, thesis and better approach to human solutions.
The illiterate of the 21st century is not those that does not know how to read and write but those that refuse to unlean and relearn.
Science seems to be the best option of the world today not because is perfect but because its create room for critical, rational and logical evaluations that helps us understand our world and how we deal with it to create better co-existence and improvement of human life and comfort.
My father dont have the knowledge of a computer, but I do. The fact that Edo forebearers accepted the christian religion which they knew not so much about because none or not many could travel or have access to evaluation and access information we do today, DOESNT MEAN Edos of today should follow same.
Oba of Benin is not the originator of the Bible nor the christian religion. Christianity is not Edo religion or spirituality. It was brought to the shore to Edos. The Oba of Benin have every right to refuse other religion that does not tally with his religion because when you accept other person or people's definition of your reality you are making yourself subject to their control and manipulations . The Japanese did, China, Indian and many other societies refuse other invading religion and stayed to theirs.
Questions everything. Even Europeans who are appling science and quiting religion daily does know the stage and time of world civilization.
My point, Lets research more, lets broaden our thinking , lets know what was Edo original language and intellectual property? not Ogunrobo now Ijesurobo? Osa now seen as Jesus or the biblical name God etc.
You can imagine what Prof. Alex was talking about in the teaching of Edo lunar months. You will discovered that most edo words and names have lost their original values and translations to the later biblical words.
Edo must have their original names and values. Extract it from the later corrupt bible words because bible and christianity is European religion and ancient cultural values.
New words can also be employed but such meaning and translations must be to represent the core edo culture and tradition.
Teach Edo culture, folkslore, Educative informations and scientific interpretation to make Edo people critical thinkers not same circle of bible lessons going round the circle over and over again. as if edo language is european christian creation.
Am an ex pastor. Since I discovered all that bible shit was lies cooked up, I dump that fraud made to create zombies. Whether oba goes to church or not have nothing to do with individual belief or self conviction.
I have seen that these religions are responsible for all backwardness in the African psyche making them not to physically productive
Whether my father was a Christian does not matters to me
If my father made mistakes in life does not mean I have to continue because he was before me
Edo language is Edo culture
How can a true medical doctor who suppose be letting us know about health thesis and science report and education in edo now one going about preaching the unholy bible? Something I doubt the certificate of these so called doctors

THE "TOWER OF BABEL" AND THE "CRACKED SHELL OF TORTOISE."

Millions of Africans literally believe that the "Tower of Babel", is the origin of different languages spoken in the world today, but do not believe that tortoise's misadventure in the sky is the origin of its cracked shell...because the former is of Hebrew origin and the latter of African origin.

As children in the village, we were told a story of how tortoise come to have cracked shell. Tortoise's overheard the birds talked about a great feast they have been invited to by a great king that lived in the sky. After much begging, the birds agreed to take tortoise along with them to that feast. Since tortoise has no wing and could not fly, each bird lend tortoise a feather, and up to the kingdom in the sky all flew. But the greed and trickery of tortoise made all the birds to starve while tortoise filled its stomach with all the food and wine. 
Angered by tortoise treachery, each bird took back its feather from the tortoise and abandoned it bare in the sky. Tortoise eventually fell to the earth and shattered its shell. It would have died but for the ingenuity of a powerful medicine man who sew all the pieces of shells together. Thus, is how tortoise came to have cracked shell, the story ends.

But, we Africans, dismiss as a fable, this story of tortoise first told by our ancestors, but believe without an iota of evidence, the story of the Tower of Babel told first by ancient Hebrew. Both stories are myths! The "Tower of Babel" was invented by the ignorant to explain how the different languages in the originated.

When European children of this age are busy in science labs researching for the next scientific breakthrough, African children are being convinced to speak in tongues for miracles to happen in their lives.

At a time that American children are being taught Advanced Mathematics & Engineering to probe the underseas & space, African children are advised to learn to speak in tongues for financial breakthrough.

At a time that Chinese & Indian Children this age are busy engaging in New Management & Technological studies to enhance their development & improve their lives, African children are being coached to speak in tongues to be able to solve simple arithmetics.

At a time that little school children in Japan & South Korea are being taught Advanced Engineering, Robotics, Construction Techniques & Modern Farming Techniques to be able to improve their nation's net worth, African children are being trained to speak in tongues to ward off the devil.

At a time that children in Hong-Kong, Taiwan, Singapore & Malaysia are seriously mastering Computer Science & Information & Communication Techology to advance their society, improve their economy & enrich their lives, African children are busy speaking in tongues to help end poverty in their families.

Africans, wise up. GOD IS UNIVERSAL.

The solution to the black world is self actualization from relearning about their history, culture, tradition and science, institutionalize their afrocentric curriculum for their future generation. rebuild their collective oness and uniqueness. empower that that strenghten their self esteem and development. doing away with Jesus and Islam /christianity and islam that was brought to enslave them forever
