The British Expedition To Ethiopia (Abysinnia) And The Battle Of Magdala by Nobody: 2:51pm On Oct 05, 2017
The British Expedition to Ethiopia (Abyssinia) and the Battle of Magdala

It was a rescue mission and punitive expedition carried out between 1867-68 AD by the armed forces of the British Empire against one of the most colourful and extraordinary rulers in African history, emperor Tewodros II of Ethiopia.

It was one of the most bizarre and expensive campaigns of the Victorian age.
Harold G. Marcus described the action as "one of the most expensive affairs of honour in history."

The British force of 13,000 soldiers and 26,000 camp followers was commanded by General Sir Robert Napier, while the Ethiopian force of 9000 men was commanded by Emperor Tewodros II battled at Magdala (a fortress in of the most rugged mountains in the world). The British force suffered 22 casualties (20 wounded and 2 dead) and the Ethiopian force suffered 1900 casualties (1200 wounded and 700 dead).

The campaign ended with British success in their main objective of releasing the hostages. Emperor Tewodros II killed himself with a pistol that had originally been a gift from Queen Victoria. The British burned the fortress Magdala, including its churches, as a punitive measure. They also looted infinite invaluable variety of gold, and silver and brass crosses" along with many Christian books and texts, filigree works and rare tabots. The looting was huge amounts that it needed 15 elephants and almost 200 mules to bear the loots.

And you are telling me that these demons didn't have influence over East Africa?
I know what I say sometimes is esoteric, rare, and not of everyday point of view but I know the underlying causes of what is troubling not just Africa but the world. Sodomites and pedophiles are the demons of this world. And since ancient times of Babylon evil cults of men and women, performing sex rituals, human, child and animal sacrifice have conjured up demons to increase their rule and domination over others. The issue with many Africans who are involved in these organized religions, such as yourself, is that you really believe that Christianity, Hebrewism aka Judaism and Islam aren't cults. The orthodox versions which are heavily drained of any magic and references to the occult are void of cultism on the surface for a reason. That reason is to make masses of people into ignorant slaves of gigantic cults that are ruled over by secret societies of Illuminati Masons. All them religious leaders, clergy and high levels of the 3 major religions are Masons. I can show you the map of Masonic Temples in all parts of Africa. I can show you the map of Masonic Temples in the Black Caribbean and the United States plus the U.K and Canada. Masons use sodomy to control people and populations, to make slaves and this goes back thousands of years in human history including Africa. This is what was behind all those murderous Jihad armies that enslaved everywhere they went including the Crusaders. Wake up. You might want to open your mind a little. Just a little. Ase. Love Sango.

I'm non believer. Those religions you mentioned are cults could be or couldn't be, but I believe that most of the religions are man made systems for their respective fantasy God/gods.

Does God exist? May be or may be not. sad

Does matter exist? Has anyone ever seen an atom or just theorise what one may look like?

You got me in this. But there has been research been done on matter, but not on God because the description of God by believers isn't physical.

If God is nature or Big-bang or alien, then I may believe that God/gods exist.

Olodumare or Amen is beyond the comprehension of man. Brains are apart of creation and therefore limited in their capacity to grasp the higher planes of existence where Olodumare dwells.

There are planes of higher existence where the physical laws, rather by laws are different from the ones here so the life there is different. Planes are seperated by density like different oceans. Yes, oceans are different from each other and never mix because of the water of one is a different density from the other. Look, check it out:

There is a Water plane, Fire plane, Air plane, Ether plane and we are on the Earth plane of existence. This was well known in ancient times but was hidden by evil Freemasons that are running the world.

Read about the different planes on my Cosmology research blog. Scroll down to the bottom to see the pyramids of Nigeria that the Europeans destroyed because the pyramids are symbolic of the planes of existence.

Blog: http://undergroundriseup..com/2017/04/bunyoro-kitara-empire-of-light-bachwezi.html


The circular city built by the Yoruba Queen Bilikisu Sungbo was built to symbolize the planes. Each planet, Europeans are calling them planets, Freemason lie and rubbish, are actually planes of existence above us. These planes are circling around us and round in nature. Each has its own energy, as I've said they are planes of existence, giant wheels. These giants wheels are just tiny wheels in higher wheels and higher wheels. So says the ancient text is the realm of the Olodumare and only Esu can go there as taught in Ifa. Even Orunmilia the Alaafin of the Cosmos must get his messages from Esu the messenger and energy deity because he can't go where Olodumare is because its beyond wisdom, therefore beyond comprehension. Ase. Love Sango.
