My views are not based on an inability to envision certain theories that are put foward as fact but from an assessment of how useful of these would be in the re-creation of a viable and sustainable African world. I may be wrong or it may turn out that I am right, we will see. I base my views first on what I know, then on what I feel.
'Propaganda' is often used as a term of derision but it should never be underestimated. What is now called propaganda is as old as the first word spoken from human to human. We make the world with concepts and concepts, like any other tool must be shaped to fulfill the task at hand. We should also be aware of others using this on us - the best way to hide the truth is to mix it up with little lies, nothing major, just little garnishes here and there.
The question that started this thread (Africans and Christianity) is about a concept that has wreaked havoc in Africa. These faked up 'religions' and ideologies('idiot-logics') have served to distract Africans from reality.
In his book 'Myth, Literature and the African World', Wole Soyinka spoke of the role of myths and legends in the creation of the caucasian world. He returned particularly to the myth of the 'discovery' of fire (Prometheus). He spoke of important fire would have been to the inhabitants of these cold , dark places and how to them, it had to be a thing with divine origins. He also pointed out the survival of fire worship in the present day, how you can hardly turn around without seeing some form of fire placed in a prominent or iconic place.
So, 'quest for fire ' is not the only hymn of worship sung by caucasians/aryans to thier true god. There is hardly a film, TV show, advert, documentary etc. where fire (or a derivative) does not feature sooner or later.
Myths like that of Oedipus and Prometheus are representative of the origins and the survival of the caucasian species. Your comparison of my use of the works of Diop and Welsing to 'conan' and 'quest for fire' I think missed the point that I had been trying to make. Myths and legends are symbols but behind the symbols are actual historic events and these can be just as fantastic or even 'stranger than fiction'.
