Voodoo is a form of faith that exists in Ghana Togo And Ivory Coast and many other countries of the world, or West Africa.
The Voodoo Problem of Ghana, Togo, and Ivory Coast
I want to laugh, and ignore people who talk about Voodoo in Africa, but the more they talk, the more I know there is a problem with Voodoo. It is easy for me to say, “I do not believe in Voodoo.” That does not make Voodoo disappear, it still exists.
Whatever people believe in exists, there is power in Voodoo, because people believe in it, and give it power to change their lives. People in Ghana, Togo, and Ivory Coast, and I probably most countries in West Africa believe there is Voodoo behind the success or failure of people. Is an alarming percentage of people who believe, even the whites that come here are Africa of the power of Voodoo.
People want to believe, it is almost impossible to find a person on the planet that does not grant power to:
Jesus, God, Muhammad, Astrology, Buddha, Crystals, Psychics, Vampires, Hobbits, Black Cats, Lucky Numbers, Confucius, Omens, and many others beliefs.
I enjoy talking about Voodoo, Astrology, and Jesus Christ, there is nothing more intriguing that to listen to people explain what they believe.
Ths Illogical Arrogance of Logic and Science
I try to explain faith to people, and after 57 years of living, I give up, the majority of people are not mentally capable of grasping the concept of faith. It the same though, when I explain electrical current, there is no way to stop their fear of electricity.
Arguing over faith is illogical, how can one argue for, or against faith, because faith is faith, to justify or negate faith with the use of logic is either a lack of faith, and to try to disprove faith with logic, is illogical, there is no way to apply rules of logic to faith.
"I think, therefore I am.” - Rene Descarte
People, believe in Voodoo, therefore it exist, it is an act of faith, that is granted power to change the world, the same as Jesus, Mohamed, and Buddha. What do I believe? I believe to win friends and influence people; it is not wise to sit around denying Santa Clause, and the Tooth Fairy. And yet, encouraging the faithful, all of mankind to have faith in good is about the best I can do in life to change the world.
I have faith that truth and honesty will set me free, and that lies are more believable than the truth, otherwise politicians would go out of business.
Voodoo is a problem in Ghana, Togo, and Ivory Coast, people make decisions for life, now go check your horoscope, and tell me how the Black people of Africa are crazy.
