|Politics / Finally, South Africa Returns $15 Million Arms Deal To Nigeria by abila122: 10:05pm|
SOUTH African Ambassador to Nigeria, Lulu Louis Mnguni, said on Friday that Nigeria has received the $15 million seized by the South African authorities in connection with two arms deals.
According to an online news medium, The Cable, Mnguni also reacted to the building collapse at the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) in Lagos and its effect on the relationship between the two countries, saying they had come a long way and the collapse could only make them closer and stronger.
“South Africa’s relations with Nigeria comes a long way, so, now, this will actually make us much closer, to see how we can close some of these gaps that result in such accidents,” Mnguni said.
The ambassador added that the seizure of the funds by the South African government was in no way related to the Synagogue incident.
“South Africa’s relations with Nigeria is priceless, it cannot be sold for $15 million. These are two separate incidents and, of course, the issue of the money has already been sorted out. Nigeria has been given the money,” Mnguni added.
On September 5, South African authorities seized $9.3 million cash belonging to the Nigerian government before seizing another $5.7 million about one month later, claiming both funds were to be used for illegal purchase of arms.

|Religion / Re: Should Child Dedication Be Abolished Since It Is Found In The Law Of Moses? by Bidam: 10:05pm|
Did you see house dedication and car dedication mentioned in the OP? Why are you creating a mischief here?
christemmbassey:And the liberty in Christ is that no one is forcing you to dedicated your child, just like no one is forcing you NOT TO EAT PORK. You have no case here.
Your argument will be tenable if the OP insist people MUST do it so far i don't see the practice as highly legalistic neither is any church imposing it on believers so what is all these claims about judaism Some folks no dey read their bible well sha..SMH!

|Religion / Re: Read This & Claim Atheism! by AgentOfAllah: 10:04pm|
Dude, your target is at the centre, but you keep shooting in all 360 cardinal directions. Let's focus on one thing at a time to make the conversation manageable for us both. Our focus is evolution for now. When we're done, we can talk more about god.
I made no such argument. In fact, by trying to engage with you, I'm doing the exact opposite of dismissing your argument.
Askg me to not mention evolution, is like sayg i shud stay hush about an absurdity.Au contraire, I'm not asking you to hush about evolution, I'm actually quite interested in what you have to say about it, which is why I'm engaging you. So please, spell out the supposed "absurdities".
Yes, the same way people (and especially the church) initially reacted to Galileo Galilei's heliocentric argument. Their reactions were, of course "genuine and unadulterated, from the heart"...except he was right and they were wrong!
My question is not barren at all (I don't even know what that means...lol). I really want to know why you think evolution cannot account for morality. 'Morality' is a beneficial behaviour that ensures the continued survival of the homo-sapient species. Of course, other animals have been suggested to exhibit apparently moral behaviours too, the homo sapient species is unique in its ability to abstractify morality and, as a result, adopt excess moral baggage (like religion) as long as it believes there's some kind of benefit to be gained. Although, in a very interesting 1967 study, "Cultural acquisition of a specific learned response among rhesus monkeys" by G.R. Stephenson, other primates were shown to acquire excess "moral" baggage even when they didn't know why. What this proves is that morality is not a 0/1 attribute, it is actually a spectrum, with humans having the highest degree of it, and (co)incidentally, the highest capacity for destruction too, as a result.
Yes, I agree that randomness/chance cannot explain man's intellect, or the diversity of life for that matter. But whence comes the presumption that evolution is a random, chance dictated process? It is far from. While mutations may occur by chance, evolution doesn't. It favours the mutations that prove beneficial to the organism, and if such a mutation doesn't prove beneficial, the organism might still keep it provided the organism has other mutations that provide net benefit. Otherwise, the organism would do away with it or die out eventually. As a result, you'll find a lot of unnecessary complexities in organisms (no intelligent designer makes things unnecessarily complex). Imagine you made a t-shirt, and sewed another t-shirt to that t-shirt for no reason. This is the sort of complexity we find in biological organisms, and this is consistent with evolution, which forces organisms to shed harmful mutations or die out (dormant mutations, e.g male nip.ples and wisdom teeth may needlessly remain).
I hope, from my previous explanation, we can now agree that evolution is not chance/random process. For more information on this, click HERE
Another misconception you seem to have is what constitutes scientific theory. Scientific theories aren't conjectures at all. They are explanations built upon experimentally demonstrated facts. Actually, attaining the status of 'theory' in science is the highest possible scientific acknowledgement any proposition can achieve after extensive, rigorous scrutiny (e.g. electromagnetic theory which has provided us with mobile phones, internet, GPS and so on).
And contrary to your false assertion, evolution has actually been witnessed on small scale in labs here's an example. I hope you change your stance on that. It is a lot more difficult to witness it on macroscale as this takes several thousands of years to manifest.
Finally, while basic lifeforms may evolve and change their methods of adaptation, they do not always have to evolve into complex lifeforms. In fact, this hardly happens, as it does seem there are more unicellular organisms than multicelullar ones in existence. This supposition is difficult to confirm mainly because we don't have a full list of more readily observable multicelullar organisms organisms, talk less of unicellular ones.
I don't know what you mean.
