As we all know the Europeans introduced Christianity to Africa at the end of the 19th century,with that in mind it would be normal to assume religion and indeed Christianity is wide spread in Europe

But you would be very wrong if you assumed that , in fact studies show Europe is the least religious continent in the entire would

Another interesting fact shows that the least religious countries in Europe are the richest and the most religious countries are the poorest



Example of the 4 richest countries in Europe

1. Luxembourg 46% believe there is a god

2. Norway 22% “

3. Switzerland 44%

4. Austria 44%

Example of the poorest countries in Europe

1. Bulgaria 70% believe there is a god
2. Romania 92% “
3. Montenegro 86%
4. Macedonia 86%


Something to think about

The problem with modernity is that it assumes that science can explain everything. Frankly, i find the big bang theory to be more absurd than creation theory. Science tends to overestimate its capabilities. The so called modern, ‘civilised’ and ‘enlightened’ man cannot imagine himself worshipping God even though he will have no problem worshipping the so called celebrities.

Still, religion has done great disservice to God thusly granting atheists very potent weapons to attack believers with.

If only 40% of Kenyan Christians actually practiced Jesus doctrine as opposed to Christianity (read denominational) doctrines, Kenya would be a small paradise on earth. Because religion tends to attract the hopeless/poor, many people assume that religion is for the simple-minded but God is not religion and, certainly, to treat other people the way we’d expect them to treat us is obviously not a doctrine of the ‘simple-minded’. To forgive is certainly not a domain of the weak/simple-minded; it is the domain of the strong. To always act with justice is certainly not a domain of the simple minded; it is a domain of visionaries. And to love is not the domain of the weak/narrow minded; it’s a domain of the strong. Even the most sophisticated/learned want people to treat them nicely/with justice and this, to a large extent, is all what God is all about. In fact, if everyone adopted this commandment, the world would instantly become a paradise.

Throughout the ages, it is religion/machinations of the religious class and not God that has been the problem.

Science does not seek to explain anything, Karl Marx. It simply is the beat tool we have for understanding, the universe in an empirical manner. The big bang, therefore comes as an inference of phenomena such as the CBR.

Sure, but man assumes that science can offer solutions to all of mankind's 'mysteries' and 'unknowns'.
For instance, in order to deny Christ's resurrection, some fringe groups claim that Christ actually never died but was simply revived after suffering from some form of coma on the cross, in part due to the cool environment of his sepulchre.
What man fails to understand is that he was originally meant to be the 'master' of the creation(earth and all of its components). This means that quest for knowledge is good and, in fact, encouraged by the Creator. However, what God wants and what man doesn't want is that when the latter discovers the marvelous workings of the sun, he sees God in that piece of creation and, consequently, praise Him. Man is too proud to bend this 'low' and recognize a supernatural being in the creation of the sun. However, God has given man free will to act as he wishes.
If you look carefully, you will discover that contrary to popular beliefs, God is even not very demanding. Realistically, an average person can abide by the 10 commandments without stressing himself too much. Consider God's Law with the laws that human beings craft in order to control fellow humans. Even some of the most learned people rarely understand human laws.
That said, i'd rather be a slave of God than be a slave to fellow humans(through consumerism, celebrity worship, mind control, political sycophancy etc). For the sake of the argument, let's assume that God doesn't exist; if believing in a non existent God makes me respect my parents in ways that i couldn't manage if i was a non-believer, then let it be so. If believing in a non existent God makes me avoid sexual immorality and, consequently, avoid diseases like HIV/AIDS and also protect me from having half of income going to support kids that i sired out of wedlock, then i am all too ready to believe in this 'Non-existent' God.
