Yes we will, had Africa started experiencing natural disasters like this before the advent of technology, we would have been world leaders.
I guess you have a point there, our forefathers had almost everything working out well for them. Unfortunately it lead to the greatest mistake in Africa "SLAVE TRADE"

Then we should all start believing every story we read. We should believe that Achebe's Okonkwo once existed. We should believe in Scooby Doo and Cinderella.



I guess Scooby Doo and Cinderella are myths and meant for kids which is why you cannot go beyond what they are with them.

The Bible on the other hand is way different

Most of the Bible stories are Jewish myths. Many countries have their own myths.

Scooby Doo and Cinderalla are not myths, though.

Slave trade was and is still a universal scourge, not limited to the black race.
Our number one enemy was terrain.

According to history, before the advent of slave trade the level of development in Africa & Europe was at par. If only our forefathers had refused, Africa could have been one of the leading continents.

At various stages of history.
Development in Africa and Europe might have been at par.

That was not the case around the advent of transatlantic slave trade. The Europeans were miles ahead of us.
They had seen bigger wars and adapted.
They had seen bigger natural disasters and adapted.
They had explored the world more.
They had discovered gun powder.
More cultural interactions due to a terrain suite for travel leading to more exchange of ideas.

If not for radical changes in navigation, Sub-Saharan Africa is an unforgiving place.
Had we had more natural disasters pushing our survival instincts, we might have been more adventurous. Instead we were busy fighting local wars.

we are not breathing fine. different types of punishments are tailored for different peoples. our punishment is our leaders

For the gravity of the sins committed by Nigerians, I think Nigeria deserve a greater punishment...

My prayers are with America. Forgive them their shortcomings and grant them peace for the sake of the innocent ones. Thank you for hearing my cries oh Lord.

and GOD even went on to explain how he did it. (please note that there were no scientist back in the day to explain the phenomena o)

"Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the LORD drove the sea back with a strong east wind and turned it into dry land. The waters were divided" - Exodus 14:21

oh yes the focus is the strong east wind . The waters were driven back but people said its impossible for the sea to go dry but if we are seeing it happening in Florida then it means the Moses account also happened.

Beaches have become ‘dry’ as tropical winds have pulled their ocean tides far away from the shore

Its easy for us to believe scientific explanation for this phenomenon, but when the Bible recorded God parted the red sea we begin to doubt. Some would even say because there is no scientific explanation they cant believe. Atheism is in deed foolishness of the highest order.

Africa, more precisely Nigeria already had contact with Europe years before the transatlantic slave trade which was tagged the greatest forced migration in history commenced. Like you pointed out exchange of ideas, don't you think that could have been possible . I still retain my view that Africa could have been very great if not for the slave trade.

Last week, Hurricane Irma shocked the world by decimating the island nations of the Caribbean. Now that the powerful storm has made landfall in the US and the Bahamas, a terrifying rare phenomenon is occurring that has left residents in absolute disbelief – and it could be the sign of something much worse to come.

The Portuguese missionaries had contact with black Africans, not the other way round.
This and the slave trade was in the same Era.

Europeans had access to horses, Arabs to camels, Americans to lamas, what did we have to ease long distance travel.

Moreover the nature of our forests Riverland deserts were hell.
To cut it short, we never mastered the art of distant trade and exchange of ideas.
