Such a boring way to die! Anyways, rip David. Though what do u care now, u are dead already. U can't become undead even if we want that. So long, bro. My heart-felt condolences to the parents. No parent should ever bury a child! Such pain, such suffering, such agony. U feel like ur heart is ripped apart. The gnarly pain unfathomable! Take heart bro, we'll never forget!

On Friday 29th April, 2016, a great intellectual, literati, philosopher and friend departed this world of strife. I got wind of the news the following day and it was difficult to react to it. I became short of words because this someone so full of life and bubbling with ideas. I have known him all through my years as an undergraduate student and even now, he is one of the few people I can truly call my friend. I remember how we wanted to publish a philosophical book entitled "What Happened to Man?" but for certain circumstances. I remember that we did publish a poem together "How does it feel to be a Problem?" which was published by Saraba Literary Magazine in the Solitude Edition 2013/2014. I remember when we talked about postgraduate studies and its prospects. I remember that he called Sandra James an Athenian beau. I remember that he was a bossom friend, and even beyond so, to the Iwezus; Joy and Ewere. I remember he spoke well about "Blacky" Daniel Nnamani and actually did introduce me to him. I remember our chats; some of which I still have "screen-grabbed". I remember the day you graced Lillysparrow's day with Blacky. I remember our Masonic alignments and ideals. The Hobbessian state of nature. I remember... EVERYTHING!
I have not made many friends in the life but you, Freeman David II, are my friend and I'll carry your memory with me, always and forever. You are not dead! I refute this Neitzschean state of affair!
You had always been an Existentialist! A Sartrean and a believer of Kierkegaard and Hiedegger! You believed in the power of human FREEWILL in the face of nothingness, absurdity and futility. Why did you compare yourself with Sisyphus? Why did you become Tantalus? You put questions at the lips of everyone! You made me reevaluate reality all day. It was you Freeman, it was you...
Alas! The traveller has returned
Like an Avatar couched with dust:
This is the final initiation.
Memento, Memento Mori:
From dust we come,
To dust we return.
"Then out spake brave Horatius,
The Captain of the Gate:
'To every man upon this earth
Death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better
Than facing fearful odds,
For the ashes of his fathers,
And the temples of his Gods.'"

Farewell my bro. We shall meet at the Cosmic gate!
What an adieu!

BlissB I understand that you don't want to dishonor the dead, but please tell me he didn't commit suicide so that I can stop this noise in my head.
Adieu David
cry
BlissB I also understand your need to honour.
But if you lied to Nairalanders concerning the cause of his death, my prayer for you is that the blood of others in that flock of atheism won't be on your headsad
You need to set other Atheist aka philosophers free to go search for God from their empty thinking.

When we are down, just knowing that God is there and that He sees, strengthens us.
Atheist don't believe in God, so who will they run to for salvation when the evil depression of this world goes on rampage like a roaring lion seeking whom to devour?

You don't want to speak the truth, cool, but you shouldn't have lied. At all sad

RIP Brother
I can't believe this.
Still checking through since...
So you're truly gone.
This world is just too vain.

What caused your fall please?

Because the bath floor was slippery especially with soapy water. There is something entirely wrong with the way we use bath basin in Nigeria. We stand to bath instead of lying on the bath.

Hotels are worst culprit. While would you install a bath basin in a public hotel you don't clean well? Who ever is going to lie in there?

I can't count how many people this accident has killed!

I believe Freeman would never had committed suicide, he is a philosopher, and not just a student, but a scholar with this in depth knowledge of philosophical theories.


Suicide no no no

Very sad. We judged some stages of the Nairaland debate together. He was a very intelligent fellow with a clear thought process. Still find it hard to believe that I am using 'was' for him.

Rest in peace bro. cry cry
Omg...I remember seeing his pics when he passed out from nysc program and our dear nairalanders were making fun of a part of his body. so sad
