Life Worth More Than Silver And Gold : The Reason I Forget I’m An Author

Israel 3Sick World: Would you be happy to see a child manhandled in this way if you have children?

If you are someone that loves nature, appreciates life in every way and cares about our environment, society and the future of your children, you’ll never be satisfied with the havoc, destruction, crime, racism, terrorism and violence tearing our society apart today.

One of the strategies both experienced and new authors used to promote and attract readers to their websites, is to blog or share friendly or interesting articles. Unfortunately, I haven’t  lived up to the standard of writing friendly articles for readers to be interested in my books, because I’m more worried about the menace destroying our society, than the money to go into my pocket.

Everyone is after money, ignoring the dangers lurking in our communities. School children carry guns to schools, killing students, but only few people show concern. Africans are plagued with Aids, Ebola and Lassa Fever and those that responsible for the medical crimes are enjoying life with impunity today.

Those medical crimes have taken thousands into their untimely grave, yet no one cares about them, because pharmaceutical companies, organizations, authors, writers, the media, people in business etc, think it may affect business when they speak against those medical crimes. 

I live in Belgium, a country that produces the best quality beer, chocolate and waffle in the world, Not because I want readers to buy my books, I’ll promote or praise Belgian products. Instead I speak against the crime they committed in Africa. If there is no statue of Adolf Hitler for killing 6 millions Jews, then Belgium shouldn’t erect a statue of a king that killed and maimed over ten million Africans, including children in Brussels.

How can I ignore such injustice as a writer without speaking against it, because I want money in my pocket? In every society there are both good and bad people. I believe the good ones will understand me and if they want my books, they will buy them.

Whereby we are going about our businesses, we should also show concern for others. Just imagine the terrorist activities which claimed precious lives in the United States of America and Europe. Do you expect me to be friendly because of my books or bitter?

I have said it over and over, when the rain falls, it doesn’t fall on one man’s house. When terrorism strikes it affects also innocent people. Together we should fight against crime, after all what shall it profit a man to gain the whole world and go down into his grave without anything he toiled for?

Africa: Destroyed By The Gods

Ako 3My motivations for writing this book came from the pain I feel when I see the havoc foreign religions have wrought on Africa, especially in the last three decades. Traditionally, Africans are a deeply spiritual people. It is sad and painful to see how our deep spirituality was used to turn us into unthinking zombies.

It appears like the African elite, by which we mean the political as well as the spiritual elite, are in cahoots to keep the people in perpetual ignorance. Some ideals the European Missionaries preached, like “Love thy neighbour,” are not ideals they were prepared to abide by. They served to transform our conquerors into saviours to worship. Sadly, these are the same ideals our pastors today use to render us into unthinking masses of simpletons, so that they and the political elite can continue to loot our national resources.

By successfully turning themselves into ‘men-of-god,’ the priests transformed themselves into venerable agents of the creator, so it’d be sacrilegious to question or attack them. An important question we need to ask ourselves as Africans is what single benefit we have achieved with all the prayers, holy retreats and the burning of candles we have engaged in over the years. We also need to ask the pastors and the archbishops why they are not prepared to wait for their own paradise in afterlife.

Although we did not set out to write a comprehensive critique of the Christian religion, we show enough evidence to demonstrate that it was a religion deliberately founded on fraud. There are abundant historical records to show that the central figure of Christianity, Jeshua or Jesus, was a Roman invention; he never exist as a historical person. There is abundant evidence to show that the book the Christians called the Holy Bible were collections of ancient fables gathered by wandering habirus (Hebrews), and that they are not accurate historical narratives. Many of them were consciously forged stories.

The records are in the public domain to show that the books that made up the Bible were selected at the First Council of Nicaea, convened by one of the most murderous of Popes, Constantine, in AD 325. Also in the public records is how the King James Version of the Bible was put together at the urgings of one of the worst killers to grace the English throne, King James. My sadness at the havoc the Christian religion wrought compelled me to start writing about it.

I hope that my struggle will propel other honest Africans to begin to challenge the false preaching of the Christians and, hopefully, regain some of our African patrimony before they are totally destroyed by the lies the Christians peddle. We Africans need only to sit and do some thinking. If, as almost every scientist today knows, we are the first people on earth, how do we end up worshipping a Semite god? Another question we ought to ask ourselves is why is it that we are the only people that do not worship a god in our own image and in our own language? Apart from Africans, every society creates its own god in its own image.

This is not a complete evaluation of the Christian religion, but we provide enough materials for the honest investigator to search for and find the truth. We provide enough proof and suggestions to make the honest Africa do his own study, and discover that, contrary to what his pastor says, the Bible is not a correct historical document. On these pages, I set forth my views on the Christian religion. I urge that they be read in the same honest spirit they were written.

The Devil Among Us In The Likely Of Men

handsUnited we stand, divided we fall.

Racial discrimination, violence and crime, are some of the problems that have divided, caused havoc and brought unrest in our society today, yet many don’t learn  from the painful experience, destruction and the mistakes they do.

No body wants to be called a racist. “The black man say it’s the white man, The white man say it’s the black man, Indians say it’s the coloureds, Coloureds say it’s everyone…….” Sings Lucky Dube, the great South African reggae legend.

In one of the shops in Antwerp, an African dog lover,went to buy a dog’s chain. After payment, as soon as he stepped outside, a white man entering the same shop, saw him with the chain. He asked the African if he is going to use the chain on his neck. What a provocation?  I quickly stepped in to hold the angry African, when the scene nearly turned to bloodshed.

That is how life goes sometimes. The poor African is not looking for trouble but the devil is knocking on his door to give him one. The white man knows very well that such question could bring unexpected problems, yet he ignored and did what his heart wants. And if you called him a racist, he will tell you “I’m not.”

At the just concluded Flemish Journalist Association end of year’s press conference on December 5, 2015, in Antwerp, I witnessed something more shocking. Among all the Belgian journalists, were only two Africans. A white male came to the other African, a radio journalist and asked him if he knows what monkeys eat.

“I don’t know.” He answered. “Then follow me.” Said the Belgian journalist. The radio journalist followed him, without knowing whether it was a joke, game or racial discrimination.

To his utmost surpise, he was taken to table with a bowl of fruits, including banana. He just smiled and left the Belgian journalist standing by the table. Why should something like that happen among a group of journalists in the same association? This is an insult not intelligence.

Many times the black man is seen as a criminal in the society, because of the colour of his skin, but crime doesn’t know colour. Both black and white commit crime. If you hate someone bcause of his colour, please just leave him alone. Don’t try to stir racial violence, because when trouble erupts, it affects everyone including children, our business and the society.
