This comment is ignorant on so many levels

1. Were Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindu worshippers, etc not taken as as slaves? It isn't stated anywhere that your religion or beliefs can prevent you being taken into slavery

2. Slavery sometimes require some kind of barter if it isn't achieved through conquest.

3. I am curious to know which Ifa artifacts were taken by the Brits; you have to share.

4. Perhaps in your part of Africa, the Europeans met your forefathers half-Unclad and jumping from trees with monkeys but the people of SW Nigeria were fully clothed before the arrival of Europeans. It is imbecility of the highest order to assume that everyone lived in caves like your fore-fathers.

5. Twins were not killed in any part of Yorubaland; in fact the incidence of twins in Yorubaland is amongst the highest in the world, if not the highest.


Word of advice - before you jump into the middle of an intellectual exercise, basic ability to read and write properly should be a minimum attainment for you. Your post is laden with all kinds of errors.

Leward: What are you all saying, most of you are displaying a higher level of ignorance than sincere9girian, Esu? He is supposed to be the most powerfull and most wicked god among the lesser gods and you want us to revive him? His sacrifises are primitive and expensive(in terms of palm oil, chickens and so on, i think sometimes humans are need if he has been vexed), i didnt get these facts from films, these are what i was taught so no ajebutter born and bred in the city should open his smelly ignoramus mouth to say what he doesn't know,the worship of Esu is characterised with fear, ask any yoruba professor you knw especially those in UI. Btw BH and Esu, BH is better, atleast the death is less painful and humiliating

I did not want to contribute to this thread in the first place but your !d!0tik and moronic post reverberates ignorance that needs to be 'checked' before other readers take the BS for a fact.

Firstly, I must say whoever taught you all the crap you wrote about Esu either played on your intelligence or shares the same less-discerning mind as yours.

To the matter: Esu is not supposed to and is not a wicked lesser god, Esu is a purveyor of messages between gods and between human and gods. Eus is rather known for being a trickster who plays jokes on non-suspecting folks. He's appeased separately in order for him to help convey a message to the gods or to avoid his jokes/tricks when serious matter needs urgent solutions.

His sacrifices maybe primitive - palm oil, chicken/ducks, Kolanuts etc how are all of these expensive?

The worship of Esu and any of the gods for that matter isn't characterized with fears, please shut up and keep your leprous fingers in your boxers instead of typing garbage.

We understand you and many more have become blinded by imported religion and even believe in it much more than those who brought it upon you, but you need not denigrate African traditional beliefs and spew rubbish as well as lies in your spear campaigns - thank you


LAST BULLET: Since you prefer BH, I hope Esu makes you fall victim to BH attacks one of these days.

1. Do you see how you expose your ignorance? Do you think only Africans were enslaved? Or what slave era are you referring to? Did I state that I was restricting my catchment area to Africa alone? Or did the presence of Hindu worshippers and Buddhists not give you a proper context?

2. If you don't know the meaning of barter, I suggest you pick up a dictionary. In any case, barter means the exchange of goods without the use of money. I was simply implying that slaves are exchanged for another product or service - mirrors, umbrellas, sack of potatoes, etc.

3. Are you blind? Did you not read where he stated that carvings were taken from shrines. Natural relics were taken yes but since his comment was about Ifa, I want him to elucidate further without regards to Ifa artifacts that were taken.

4. My point stands - his forebearers may have been unclad and jumping from tree to tree with monkeys; that's no reason to assume that others were.

5. Juxtaposing practices from different eras and areas to prove a point is both lazy and intellectually fraudulent. Any criticism of a practice or culture must be restricted to that culture. What has what happened in Calabar be applied to Yorubaland? Or was Mary Slessor working in SW Nigeria?

You should take your own advice. If you had taken your own advice, you would have realized that slavery was not restricted to Africa.

The state should lay more emphasis on those areas Tomakint earlier highlighted in this thread.

Can you explain to us why CRK and IRK should be taught in primary and secondary school but not IFA
Re: Bizzare: Aregbesola Introduces Ifa As A Subject In Osun State Schools by seanet02: 5:26am On Oct 08, 2013
Some people are simply never going to grow up.
Ifa is part and parcel of Yorubas.
Many people in the past embraced Christianity and Islam because Ifa told them to do so.
At least i know one.

Here is what Tony Smith said on IFA.

Authors: Frank Dodd (Tony) Smith Jr.

Ancient Africa developed IFA divination with 256 Odu analagous to the Real Clifford Algebra Cl( 8 ) and 16 Orishas analagous to the 8+8 Spinors of Cl( 8 ) but in Africa IFA was transmitted by oral tradition and not written down.

Humans emerging from Africa via the Arabian Sea settled in nearby India where ideas of IFA were written in the Sanskrit Rig Veda and encoded in Pachisi. By about 500 B.C. Pachisi evolved into Tarot. By about 1300 A.D. Tarot and some ideas of IFA were known in Mallorca where Ramon Llull used them to develop structures of the D4 and D8 Lie Algebras that lived in the IFA Clifford Algebra Cl( 8 ) and its tensor square Cl( 8 )xCl( 8 ) = Cl(16). Although Llull's work was preserved in writing in Mallorca, his ideas were rejected by the Intellectual Establishment of Paris and remained dormant for centuries.

Around 1890 Killing and Cartan rediscovered Llull's Lie Algebras. Only in the 1900s did the work of Cartan as further developed mathematicaly by Jovet, Sauter, and Riesz and as applied by Dirac to physics show how a D8 half-Spinor could be added to D8 itself to get E8 Physics and to see how E8 Physics lives inside IFA Cl( 8 ).

It has taken until now (the 2000s) for the formal Written Human Culture to catch up with the informal Oral Ancient African Culture in understanding a realistic Unified Theory of the Laws of Nature.

Any point? Even from the little on this thread, your mindset is that the people are kafiris, they should make electricity with it or that someone ought not to be an Ifa priest.

Sincere 9gerian: No wonder. I suspected something was wrong with these guys. Now we know most of the worshippers at Tinubu's shrine on this forum are idol worshippers.

There's no justification for introducing minors to idolatry. If Aregbe and his indolatrous partners are keen on propagating Ifa and the worship of other idols, they should do that at higher institutions. They should leave innocent children out of their evil agenda.

You are still talking when you should be covering your face!

Well, you're free to call it anything you like but that's does not change the fact. You have also missed the point if you think yo can bait anyone to start attacking Christianity; so that you can murky the waters.

Why should the teaching of only Ifa be delayed but the teaching of kids about other idols starts from the primary schools?

Try and show tolerance. It's good for you. Even your boss that pays you per post won't be proud of you for saying this in public.

If you doubt this, continue to show your ignorance and intolerance on this thread and see if he won't sack you by December.

But let me throw a poser at you - why do you think that the Yoruba have been able to assimilate foreign religions without being assimilated by those religions? What do you understand by the Duality of purpose (Ejiwapo in Yoruba) and what are its similarities to Zoroastrianism, ancient Greek and Roman beliefs, Hinduism, etc?

Leward: The fact is, the introduction of ifa studies in our schools will have its negative effects, now the question is when the positive an negative effects are compared, is it worth it? Definitely after learning some ifa secretes in school some kid go in the line of reviving the dark arts(whether we like it or not there will be bad eggs), is that what we need in this nation now? The revitalisation of the primitive era of superstitions and shutting down of economic activities for the celebration of some funky festivals with some abnormal activities when the rest of the world is going in another direction is not what we need. There are security, economic and power issues to be faced..
But like someone rightly said, as long as it's not compulsory, there'ld be no problems.

Have you seen the curriculum to know what 'secrets' they will teach them? These people sha!

What has teaching students about Ifa got to do with dark arts?

Gbawe:

Absolutely correct. As usual some will never confront their own intolerance and prejudice before they come here to make a fool of themselves. Look at the fascinating real life story below about Onaje and Folashade Woodbine and their devotion to learning Ifa spirituality and divination they have now developed as an app to assist those interested in Ifa divination.

Inspect even the related tale of Bishop Lijadu who, exemplifying the famed religious tolerance of the Yoruba, doubles as an authority on the real essence of Ifa. I really despise ignorance mixed with intolerance and prejudice. Simply abhorrent and the cause of some of the biggest problems the World faces and will continue to face. In a world run by ideas, some continue to display bigotry, superficiality, ignorance, prejudice and intolerance regarding what they have no authority to judge. Regrettable to say the least.

Pukkah:
The shameless team of ignoramuses think that the study of Ifa is a beer parlour talk. In trying to get at Aregbesola for whatever reason(s), they exposed their screaming ignorance and primitive intolerance.

Ifa study is for intellectuals and it takes years to train a Babalawo. The meaning of Babalawo here is not the corrupted one that is being bandied around by African Magic films or Pastors or Imams. A Babalawo is a bundle of knowledge, tolerance and spirituality.

There are several thousands of verses in the Ifa corpus many of which the average Babalawo must know by heart. Little wonder the United Nations has added Ifa to the World Heritage List. Is this a beer parlour talk?

Children must be given an opportunity to know that Esu is not the same as Devil or Satan as the adherents of Christianity or Islam would want us to believe. If Esu is the same as Satan why then is Orunmila not interpreted as Jesus? How many adults even know this? How many people know that the Esu in Yoruba religion did not quarrel with or rebel against Olodumare (God)?

The influx of foreign religions has emptied the brains of many people who deride, condemn and jeer at indigenous religion. They poke fun at others in their worship centres (e.g. Babalawo's power, powerless power o), yet complain and scream 'thou shall not judge' when commentators criticize Oyedepo or Adeboye. The Muslims are also not left out in the onslaught against practitioners of indigenous religion. Haba! What has happened to 'live and let live'?

With this move, it just shows that Aregbesola is bold, deep and discerning.

Kudos Rauf!

God bless you. Of course the introduction of IFA STUDIES is a FABULOUS DEVELOPMENT and A SIGNIFICANT STEP towards reclaiming our identity after the colonial onslaught and destruction of our indigenous philosophies.

I foresee a future Nigeria (and Africa) in which traditional disciplines are given EVERY RESPECT and SUPPORT for further research and exploration, with our traditional priests granted the SAME recognition and ACCORD as that given the Greek sophists, the Hebrew prophets, the Indian gurus, the Arab ulema, and the Chinese literati. We now know that our priests were no less wise in their observations than these foreign sages. Their ancient knowledge and wisdom is greatly needed.

CONGRATULATIONS to the governor on this magnificent development.

I am not going to stress myself to educate you too much. I understand you're mentally stressed, having been battered by several intellectually superior posters on this same thread.

I don't have to ask Professors what I know and have had the opportunity to participate in its appeasing several times. Be aware some of us were born into this and do not have to wait to be spoon-fed by professors or whatever like you. It is quite obvious you're intellectually lazy and could be easily fooled - visit a nearest 'real' babalawo for a research. All you need is a Schnapps

Let me attempt to school you a bit (even though you've been mentally programmed to strongly attach to whatever you must have been spoon-fed which appears as plain lie).

Esu is not a guard god, he is a messenger god between human and God - I suppose because Esu shrine is often placed at cross roads at the entrance of a community or within a community is why you've made this erroneous claim.Esu is not feared, he is revered and appeased first before any ebo, etutu etc is done. Esu is a divine messenger between God and Man -a god that helps to consult Eledumare on behalf of humans. Esu is a trickster who seeks to bring out the fool in a man, a good that balances childhood and old age, day and night, construction and destruction - balance of nature. Let me stop here.

If you must know, esu is fed with water (omi-tutu). The only abominable stuff never to be served or brought near Esu is 'Adin', a black liquid extracted from palm kernel.

You need to do proper research before engaging in arguments that'd make you appear as though you're making giant strides in stupidity.

I'm sure google will help you much more than your professors have.
