Ola Rotimi did not tell humanity what he saw in Africa before he wrote the story titled; THE GODS ARE NOT TO BLAME. I was on the lookout, trying to find his thought provocation as I read through the novel long ago. The entire story was an extended flashback written with clarity and simplicity. Its message gave me to wonder because I was not blindfolded to see why we should blame man in anyway. It is true that Rotimi did not tell lies to us. The narration provided vivid insight, and every characters and scenery were deeply depicted including the gods and forces that are not to blame. I saw why they are not to blame, but the reasons were not there for us to blame man either. That was why I wrote a rhetorical article titled, WHO SHOULD WE BLAME??? If we check my website, we will see e-book titled, 70 RHETORICAL QUESTIONS FOR BIAFRA'S LIBERATION. It is essential because the writing gives vivid insight for humanity to see who should take the blame under the Sun. That is by the way.
What I actually want to say here is that Europe & co still has a diabolic cult known to the wise as G.O.D in jungle of Biafra and Africa at large. It was formed in the old time, and the initial has not changed in meaning. Insight revealed it for the wise to understand that God is a body of visionary minds who foresaw the need to realize European dream at the expense of Biafra who they called Job in the story book - Bible. They saw his wealth in vision, and it was the vision that revealed the importance of prophecy in black and white.

The visionary minds of Europe saw that prophecy and writing are fantastic weapons of every dream in life. They needed to share their dreams to humanity because insight told the wise that hope and bright future are things of mind which require prophecy, cunning, trick and brain for the change ahead. Europe needed the mental tools and weapons to destroy Biafra in the jungle. That was why they told us the stories in Bible; referring to Biafra as Job in prophecy.
Truly speaking, it was not only Bible that told the story to humanity. We read it in history that Lugard and his mistress (Flora) saw Africans as black monkeys those days. They were afraid of the monkeys. That was why they decided to use religion as diabolic tool and fantastic weapon to brainwash and convert the minds of Africa from herd of monkeys into flock of sheep. It was the conversion that had gone a long way to transform Europe into heaven on earth. They shared their collective dream to us in Bible, and we accepted them at the expense of our own dream in general. That is why we see them everywhere in Africa, doing wonders with science and technology. I mean we see them making progress because majority of us are sheepish, senseless and retarded due to the evil and diabolic activities of religion which they used to blindfold Africans in realm of jungle. If I may ask! How many of us (Biafrans) have eyes in Christianity? If majority of us are not blind, why are we not doing wonders like the white who are still there in our father's lands - exploiting Biafra in all the ways? I said when shall we open our eyes and rise up against religion to chase the enemies away from Biafra
