I'm shocked that highly religious people from a third world country would believe in this sort of superstitious mubobobo.

mbillips: zimbomba63: So that's the summation of Zimbabwe's (Rhodesia) history, huh?  When you are a simple person, you use simple facts for your simple argument.

That's what we call a condensation. The reason that superstition and lynch-mob justice are prevalent in Zimbabwe is obviously a lot more complicated than that, but those are the highlights. Take a pre-industrial agrarian society, force it to produce resources for an outside society while getting few benefits of industrialization, add Cold War militarization and a lump of anti-apartheid revolution and see a brutal, corrupt dictator with an anti-Western agenda take over, and you get a lot of what's wrong in Zimbabwe. Prior to the rise of nation-states, EVERY society used beatings by village mobs as a means of resolving disputes, and they believed in witchcraft, too. I'm reading Jared Diamond's "The World Before Yesterday" right now, which delves into that.

I'm no expert on Zimbabwe; the point I'm trying to make is that the goofy belief in mubobobo can be explained by plain old human nature and circumstances, not the "har har Africa is uniquely goofy" racist reasons most of these Farkers seem to believe.


Can you dilute that word "racist" down any further? I don't think it's been diluted enough to completely lose all meaning yet. But I noticed it gets tossed around ANYTIME you criticize those that aren't white. Oh, somebody mentions it's stupid to attack people over Bluetooth rape sorcery? WELL OF COURSE YOU MUST BE RACIST!

Slartibartfaster: Witness99: If your point is that the US is as farked up as Africa and just as batty when it comes to witchcraft and sorcery

You guys are farked up - I doubt jesus would be proud of the money changers.
Im fairly certain he would be pissed off at open praying on currency.

But you know - keep it up - it's working well, didn't hurt the romans right ? Copy them with pillars and military might, it worked out swell last time.


How's the stroke rehab going?  You want a "no money" international economic system, huh?  Romans had a pretty short run didn't they?  When did Constantinople fall? Around 1450. IIRC.  They're a bad model indeed.

Bullseyed: If you believe in witchcraft you are by definition not Christian.


To me, it looks like if you are Christian, you have to believe in witchcraft.  Everything about Christianity is based on some sort of magic.  Right at the beginning, you have the "god created the world in 7 days" thing.  Talking snakes telling Adam not to eat from the tree of knowledge.  Noah and the ark.  Jonah and the whale, parting the red sea, etc.

In the New Testament, Jesus was born to a virgin.  We find stories about walking on water, curing illness, raising the dead, the loaves and fishes, water to wine, and at the end of it all, a promise of eternal life.

The list just goes on and on.

To me, it looks like you have to believe in a lot of supernatural stuff to believe in Christianity.

I don't know if that is wrong, because I thought the same thing.

Mumbo Jumbo, Superstition, Societal Belief in falsehoods.

*sigh*

Proves the smart folk got out of Africa millions of years ago, leaving it to rot and waste away by superstitious fools.

Tribesman: Oh hey, those boats must be our ancient gods coming to take us away.  The world is purified once again.
Tribesman 2: It is.  They're white and pure.  Just look at how the sun glows on their faces.

/it's great that such backward places still exist

You know these are apostolic Christians, right?

If you believe in witchcraft you are by definition not Christian. You can pretend to be and lie claiming to be, but you aren't.


Hey look everyone - God is in the thread today!

Oh look, and he's also giving out judgements on witchcraft for free!

zimbomba63: Yeah, I Mobobobobobobobobo'ed the fark out of Kate Upton last night.  I bet she said I'm the best she's ever had.


You don't have to exaggerate the length of your bobos.  Mubobobo is average.  People only think that's small because they watch too many mubobobo videos on the internet of people with freakish proportions.  Most women don't want that much mubobobo and will just think you're a freak.  Too much bobo can hurt!  It's even possible to satisfy a woman with a mubobo if you do it right.

(I'm at least a mubobobobobo, but that's beside the point!)

Can someone point out any country that doesn't have a community of back-assward people that believe stupid stuff?

That said, not all societies have to be perfectly equal.  As noble as it is to stick up for poor Africa against the vile racists, it is entirely possible that the average of one culture is more advanced than another.  A simple example:

Take 10 sets of identical twins, split them into 2 groups so each group has one of the twins, and drop them on identical desert islands.  Let them procreate for 1000 years and then come back and analyze them.  Do you think they'll still be exactly the same?  Probably not.  Perhaps Group A had better leadership in Year 1 and Group B had a nutjob who convinced the rest to worship coconuts.  Group A is now an organized, advanced, civil society and Group B is still wearing loincloths and doing the milk dance.

This doesn't mean that Group B has any less potential than Group A, or that Group B is lazy or stupid.  It's a matter of resources and cultural inheritance.  Everyone builds on what was laid before they arrived.  Also, IQ can be tied to your environment, diet and your cultural inheritance.  So it's also entirely possible that Group A is measurably smarter than Group B, on average.

All that said - those mocking Africa are still a-holes.  But America does have a culture that identifies stupidity and attacks it more aggressively than other countries, leading to slow and gradual improvements.

For certain definitions of stupid, maybe... For other types of stupid, we identify it and then elect it to Congress! Or give it a reality TV show... We worship quite a lot of stupid still, I'm afraid...
