Why Do So Many Black People (including Nigerians) Believe In God? by logicboy: 1:17pm On Mar 28, 2012
Especially a christian god?

Do Nigerians know how christianity came to Nigeria? It came through slavery. Yes, were your forefathers Christian? No!

The Portuguese then British came and took slaves from West Africa and instilled their religion there. Do you know that they used biblical verses to support slavery?

Leviticus 25:44
"Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves.

1 Peter 2:18
"Slaves, submit yourselves to your masters with all respect, not only to those who are good and considerate, but also to those who are harsh."

Titus 2:9
"Teach slaves to be subject to their masters in everything, to try to please them, not to talk back to them"



Have you not read the bible and wondered if God is a racist? If all human beings are equal, then why would an Omnipotent God have a chosen people (Isrealites)?
Have you not wondered why God neglected West Africa for over 3000 years (from biblical times till the 16th century)?

If God exists why is there so much suffering? Why were you not born in Somalia and starving to death? Is it because you prayed better than them or that you are holier?

Why doesnt God heal amputees? Yes, why doesnt a missing leg appear back or grow back? Why is it that miracles are only performed on illnesses that could have been pretended to be afflicting someone? Someone could act like he/she could not walk or has AIDS. However, someone can not fake an amputated/missing leg

Difference;


Christainity; Jesus is a Jew. All prophets or big names in the bible were Jews. Christianity is "proved" by the ressurection of a jew

Evolution; Man came from a common ancestor with monkeys. Fossils are found by white/araba/blacks/Asians. Evolution is "proved" by everybody

Black people believe in God because its logical. African languages have words for God as Creator. And no monkey descendant can change that.

Is evolution taught in Nigerian schools? No.

Is bible studies taught in Nigerian schools? Yes.


Evolution is a scientific theory. Why dont you reject white man's germ theory or theory of gravity?

Bible is just a story. We have our own story of Sango

1) God is not logical. There exist no physical proof or logical proof of god. You only guess that there is a god

2) Jesus/Allah is not a West African God. Shango, obatala, amadiaoha, Esu etc are West African Gods

Hola estimado amigo:
As you say, the Jewish-Christian God was imposed on Africa by force. By dint of whip, torture and death. The slaves brought to America were brought in warehouses piled up like animals. The dead were thrown into the sea. Those who came were left sick or wounded on the beaches for dogs to end up with their lives. For the survivors were baptized, they were given a Catholic name, they forbade their language and traditions, and forced to convert to Christianity.
All this, in the name of Christ the King ...
Thus came the Jewish-Christian god to blacks. By imposition, by force.
It is strange (really outrageous) that some Africans laugh at what was the slave process ... If they were not victims of the largest family genocide in human history, should at least have respect for those who suffered and their own ancestors.
Or is it English?
Someone here knows what was the foot washing ceremony, which was practiced at the English to come to Africa?
"Alleluia ... uncivilized blacks, although they have no soul shall receive the Lord and love Him"

No, we were not taught evolution. We were just taught different species. Homo sapien, home erectus, homo habilis etc There was no explanation of the process or theory behind it. That is why no one in secondary school in Nigeria ever thought of it debunking the bible. Thats why you didnt believe it


Furthermore, even if there is a creator (Which I honestly doubt) he is not and should not be Jesus to a West African

I am 24. I was brainwashed into it as a young child. When I became 18, I was bullied into still believing by my guardians and priests tr asking too many questions. When I had the chance to read and learn on my own- I became an atheist

at the age of 2 i knew right from wrong. i couldnt be brainwashed. i was a manchild. being brainwashed at the age of 2 is no excuse. at the age of 2 i accosted an armed robber and slapped sense into him. the point here is you were a LovePeddler for the papal church for 22 years, so personally, i dont think you are a true atheist. i think you are just angry that all the tithes you had been paying for 22 years was not reciprocated so you are going through a rebellious phase. i give you another 3 months of rebellion and you will go crawling back to the archbishop for penance and acceptance back into the fold and then you will continue your night vigils with muscled deacons and archbishops wink

of course i didnt literally do those things at the age of 2 wink LOL just making a point

they dont pay tithes in the catholic church. There are offerings which are not cumpulsory. The highest I have ever put into offering is N100 in Nigeria.

Also, I am an atheist, not just a rebel.
