You Can't Have It Both Ways: You're Either Technologically Advanced Or Culturally Inclined, Africans Are The Latter

Culture plays a very big part when it comes to Societal advancement. Most of you will agree that we Africans associate anything that is beyond our comprehension to God, witchcraft and magic. Even lightening which is just a product of collision between a negatively and positively charged clouds is associated to God or angry spirits. Galileo was almost jailed by The Catholics in the 15th Century for saying that earth goes around the sun which was contrary to popular beliefs at the time.

We will only advance tukiwacha huu ujinga mwingi wa Church na Kuomba eti Mungu atusaidie. He won’t help you because hata yeye ako isolation

Praying is just mumbling to your clasped hands speaking to yourself like an insane person

Today, cultural we are where Europe was in the 16th Century

for you there is nothing positive when it comes to africans. Are you the village kaburu around here?

LIES!

HERE ARE THE FACTS
WE ARE TECHNOLOGICALLY BEHIND WHETHER YOU ARE PROUD OF AFRICANS OR NOT
WE HAVE GOOD FOOD BECAUSE IT IS NOT AS PROCESSED AS WESTERN FOOD
WE HAVE CLOSE KNIT FAMILY WHICH IS A GOOD THING UNLIKE WESTERNERS WHO ONLY RECOGNIZE IMMEDIATE FAMILY, THEY EVEN F()CK EACH OTHER

The whole of Asia is both culturally inclined and technologically advanced.
Even the western world have only begun abandoning religion in the last 50 years or so

Wengine wetu we came from grass. While it is through working smart, I belive there is also a religious faction in play. Wacha tu tushukuru Mungu bila kusumbuliwa.

Your argument sounds convincing until you meet Jews. They are the most religious group but that hasn’t hindered their advancement. Japanese and most Asian nations are highly cultured but they are heading to the top.

It depends with what you term as culture: If it is comparing Jadongs’ Wife Inheritance with Japanese Shiro Construction or Comparing Pagodas to Manyattas then you are barking up the wrong tree

They are heading to the top and advanced by sticking to their cultures.
Africans however?

Hating your culture as a whole and believing that it hinders your economic or social progress is neocolonialism. Dropping your culture simply means you’re adopting someone else’s culture. You’re the kind of people who think ‘hyper-liberalism’ equates to progress. It doesn’t!

Mungu venye ali reorganise races after the great flood alifanya blacks (including you) tukuwe mafala kiasi… ata tufanye aje we can’t cope up

Read and reread my post.
You cannot prosper against the machine by adopting foreign cultures. That’s not hyper-liberalism. That’s being conservative.
Conserving our own and finding ways to move forward by creating our own version of the machine. You can’t expect a machine from the West to accomodate the African. It’s basically why we are technologically backward.
We cannot thrive by adopting a foreign culture as a sign of ‘cultural maturity’

You are wrong on Galileo. It shows that you are an academic dwarf perhaps

Culture is an aspect of our lives that we can consider malleable.
In the African context, where we have dropped our cultures for a foreign one, we cannot prosper in the face of the machine.
Why is this so? We have adopted a culture together with its prejudices and restrictions, especially on science.
The reason why the West is where it is, is because they moved ahead to chart a different path when it comes to religion by forging science. This is what is called the Enlightenment and has ended up with the thought of atheism, a total rejection of religion.
To the Asians however, we can see that they found ways to make science and religion/culture to accomodate each other. This means retaining admirable practices and moving ahead to drop outdated ones. Their culture is still on, but you won’t find aspects detrimental to technological advancement. This is the way to go for Africans.
We should go back to our religions and culture, find ways to make them adaptable to technology. We surely can’t be technologically advanced when we still practice wife inheritance. And when we believe that God will provide answers to problems we can use our brains to think solutions

They have Buddhism, shintoism, even weird stuff like Feng shui… Hasn’t hampered their technological advancement
