Just came across an old great quote from Jomo Kenyatta: "When the missionaries arrived, the Africans had the land and the missionaries had the Bible. They taught us to pray with our eyes closed. When we opened them, they had the land and we had the Bible." Isn't it remarkable how oppressed people embrace the gods of their oppressors?See More

The Origin of Consciousness

Posted on April 17, 2011 at 9:33am 4 Comments

The mystery surrounding the nature and origin of consciousness is the last toehold that non-rational thinkers have in the debate about human origins.
