I know a little bit about everything and that’s the problem with me. Whenever there is a conversation, I always jump out of the blues with my factual perspective, I submit assertions and arrive at conclusions without even listening enough or sampling other perspectives and experiences because as far as I am concerned, I already know what they know, maybe a little bit but it is good enough.

ELSIE GODWIN TO THE RESCUE AS SHE UNVEILS HER GOSPEL ACCORDING TO BLOGGING “OYA START BLOGGING”

E

From the markings made by the cavemen, to the scrolls in the Vatican library, the Egyptian hieroglyphs to the braille for the blind, writing in all its forms has been the sure pathway to immortality from the day it was invented, way before Moses downloaded the Ten Commandments from the cloud with the Table of Stone or Tab as it will called today, to the very next key I will strike in my attempt...

The Fools and The Levites Indeed

T

The hard-hearty cognitive defense and response system religion has instilled in people is surprising sometimes… I find it hard to believe when you see people doing exactly opposite of what the books of the religion and God they believe in teaches, while they stick so vehemently with the wrong teachings of the so-called men and women of God that teach them this opposing doctrines that is...

Letters to God (Book Review)

L

Letters To God (My Perspective) You will hardly ever find a book that tells a story raw like bleeding flesh the way “Letters To God” did it, it is a rare experience. I felt like I owned the story, like I was a part of it and I could almost smell the stupidity of Musa mixed with the lucidity of Mr. Idemili from a mile; something I’ve not felt in years from reading an experience from the printed or...
