I don't think Lai Mohammed is a fool for saying this. I just think he has total disdain for Nigerians. I think he lies knowing that Nigerians knows that he is lying but just give a damn.

|Religion / Re: Is There Something Inherently Wrong With Black Africans? by Jack65: 3:46pm On Sep 02, 2016|
I agree with you but do you honestly see that happening? Allow me to generalize here but I think the problem is that black Africans are lazy intellectually. They refuse to collectively think beyond personal "stomach infrastructure". For example an average Nigerian is only thinking of himself and his family alone. Even our so called leaders.
We don't think as a people on how to make life and our society better. That's why we believe that have a personal God who is involved in our day to day lives, who takes care of our day to day needs. This westerners have gone beyond this stage and have realized that if they don't make their society better no one will.

How do we do that, and how long is it going to take us?
|Religion / Re: Is There Something Inherently Wrong With Black Africans? by Jack65: 12:46pm On Sep 02, 2016|
Yes I honestly believe something is wrong with us in this part of the world. When other part are busy advancing in areas of science and technology, like working to send spacecraft on a journey of over 2.8 billion kilometers in search of the 9th planet or making major discoveries in stem cell research, cloning, etc.
We down here are still giving birth to babies with bibles and korans in their hands, we are still turning into owls and cats, our pastors are still claiming to have raised the dead, prayed away cancers and HIVs.
Yes something is definitely wrong when a company like Innoson cannot access dollars to import materials for his vehicle manufacturing plant but the FG is subsiding dollars for those who wants to go to hajj.
Its incredible to even think about it but there is no other explanation.

Your second paragraph is so true. At a point my Christian and very religious fiancé who was lying next to me was so disgusted and begged me to turn it off but I listened to the end because I wanted to see how Nigerians will react to this story. Well true to type, people started calling to say they've had similar experience or know someone who has had similar experience. Nobody condemned what they just heard.
I think HARDSHIPS is the reasons why this is so endemic in Nigeria and pastors and MOGs are taking advantage of that to cash in. Once people believe that their situation is not ordinary they tend to run from one church to the other instead of trying to find a way to solve their own problems.
|Religion / Re: My Thoughts And Questions About Religion by Jack65: 5:25pm On Aug 02, 2016|
Joseph I have followed this thread from the beginning to this page and want to say I admire you and what you've done with this thread. This is why I have chosen to contribute here.
Well I don't know your location but if you live in Abuja then you probably have heard of a program called "Lean on me" broadcast by Kapital FM every Monday by 10:30 pm. This program is for people with problems and difficulties or just life stories to come and share with Nigerians who will afterwards offer financial, moral or spiritual support.
Well, yesterday I had the misfortune of listening to one of the most horrible and the most tragic episode ever aired. A woman brought her 8 year old son to the studio because accusing him of being a wizard. From her story, her husband with whom she had three kids left her and the children four years ago and IMO, from the way she speaks you will notice immediately why any man will run away from this woman. She was literally violent with her tongue. Anyway this woman who is a lawyer by profession, claimed that her pastor told her during service one day that her son is a wizard and the reason why things have been difficult for her. She also said her son caused her own mother who is staying with her to go blind through his wizardry, among so many other accusation. Since then she has taken the boy to more than thirty places according to her, for deliverance and nothing has worked.
When she finished they brought in the boy to come and speak. That's when the whole episode became tragic. The boy accepted everything the mother claimed saying he was initiated into it by his father when he was two years old. Asked how, he said his father gave him beans to eat and after that gave him bread too and that's how he got initiated. He said at night the father will turn into a bird and he too will turn into a bird and they will fly together to their coven where six other elders and his grand mother (father's mother) meets. The small boy claims they suck her mothers blood, eats her flesh and SO many other BS. He even claimed he took her mother's credentials to their coven spiritually, which means that the physical ones she still has is now worthless and that's the reason why she's not getting any work to do as a lawyer.
It's just not possible for me to write everything the boy said or to correctly illustrate the WAY he said it (imagine an 8 years old). But from listening to boy any objective person will notice that everything the boy said was suggested to him probably by several of the pastors and prophets the mother took him to. Even the presenter asking him questions was guilty of this. Also any kid that watches AfricaMagic will easily know many of the things the boy said.
It was very sad indeed. What the woman was going through was hardship just like millions of Nigerians now, especially with her husband on AWOL leaving her to take care of three children without a job. Yet pastors and prophets are callously taking advantage of this to destroy this poor family and especially this kids life. The mother even said she has even considered killing this boy. Can this happen in a civilized society?

|Religion / Re: Why Do Children Suffer For The Sins Of Their Parents? by Jack65: 11:12am On Jul 31, 2016|
fbtowner:Its very sad to see you trying to justify this. "It's logical" according to you because they carry their parents faces around and answer their name. Meanwhile according to the bible: Exodus 20:5 . . . for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; (KJV)
[b]1 Samuel 15:2-3, 32-33 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I remember that which Amalek did to Israel, how he laid wait for him in the way, when he came up from Egypt. Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass. . . Then said Samuel, Bring ye hither to me Agag the king of the Amalekites. And Agag came unto him delicately. And Agag said, Surely the bitterness of death is past. And Samuel said, As thy sword hath made women childless, so shall thy mother be childless among women. And Samuel hewed Agag in pieces before the LORD in Gilgal. (KJV)
[/b]This revenge upon the nation of Amalek came about 380 years after their ambush of Israel, long after the perpetrators had died (see Exodus 17:. Can you also justify this?

You really need to make up your mind, though I understand that the journey is just beginning for you. I think you are still holding on to that 10 percent chance that what you've believed in all your life is not all lie. But it is, You will still come to reject religion completely, along with any belief in any god.
To me the bible is a discredited witness, cause if the bible that was claimed to be the inerrant word of God is found to be full of errors, contradictions, and lies then it calls into question everything written in it. They say extraordinary claim requires extraordinary evidence. You claim to still believe in God but don't believe the bible to be the word of God then please tell me outside the bible what else do you know about God. The only source of what we know today about God and creation is through the bible.

|Religion / Re: Did God Create Evil - Does The Bible Say So? by Jack65: 8:57pm On Dec 12, 2014|
However, evil is not really a created thing. You can't
see, touch, feel, smell or hear evil. It is not one of
the fundamental forces of physics, nor does it consist of matter, energy, or the spatial dimensions of the universe. Still, skeptics like to claim that God created evil and cite the Bible to "prove" their point. The Bible is quite clear that God is not the author of evil and insists that He is incapable of. doing so.
How about Freewill?? Does it have any of those attributes? But you claim God created it, no?

Please stop!!! How can you say that with a straight face? Just up there, after my last post you promised me you will resolve my own case in 48hrs, that was one week ago and I have not heard from you again till today. You guys think your customers are stupid, you think you can just come here and confuse everybody. That you answer your calls, that if they can just post their order number here their case will be resolved, but why would your customers come here to get their case resolved if you answer your calls, if you attend to them very well or if your customer services are doing their jobs?
|Business / Re: UPDATED - [Shippyme.com Is A Nightmare Waiting To Happen To You.] by Jack65: 8:01pm On Nov 14, 2014|
Nice one bros, thanks for the link. Still checking that thread out.
|Business / Re: UPDATED - [Shippyme.com Is A Nightmare Waiting To Happen To You.] by Jack65: 8:03am On Nov 14, 2014|
Yes something really went wrong with them. I used to be very happy with them but not anymore. I am sure the business owner had good intentions and good business plan but something happened along the line and everything is going to pieces, his employees and pulling the business to the ground especially the customer service.
|Business / Re: UPDATED - [Shippyme.com Is A Nightmare Waiting To Happen To You.] by Jack65: 7:55am On Nov 14, 2014|
No you didn't get me a discount, it's by chance I got it because the item's price was reduced a day after I ordered. And until this discount is credited to me I can't even say I got any. As you promised I am really waiting for this issue to be resolved and I really expect to hear back from you as no one else will reply my emails, I have sent many and I am tired of calling.
|Business / Re: UPDATED - [Shippyme.com Is A Nightmare Waiting To Happen To You.] by Jack65: 6:28pm On Nov 12, 2014|
Thanks for talking to me at last. I guess this is what it takes for you guys to respond. Ok maybe I was a bit overboard in saying that Circuitatlantic is fraudulent but you caused it. Yes you were right, I have used Circuitatlantic extensively for a long time and it pains me that this is happening. I have introduced a lot of friends to your website and some have even ordered some things through me. So I really want you to get it right but instead you keep scaring away all your customers. You can see that on this thread.
The biggest problem you have is customer service, everybody makes mistake but the ability to communicate effectively with your customer at all time is the key. Your people don't answer their calls and please there is no explanation for it. Three numbers were listed on your website, yet non of them will be answered, I even tried the US line and it entered voice mail.
Concerning my order. You didn't address the issue I raised on my post. Once again, when I placed my order the item was $145 which I paid but by the time the item was purchased it was $131, (mind you I was following it) I believe my balance should be credited to me. Don't you think so
