About

This page is always under construction…

Am an architect, I love classical music, movies, books, I sometimes spend my time in the park listening to birds sing, when I can I like to watch the sun go down, I love my beer cold and am an atheist a naturalist.

We are on a journey together to where i know not freeing the world from religious bigotry and nonsense BS.

This is where I will record my thoughts as they occur to me when am awake.

These thoughts will cover religion, book reviews, photography[am receiving donations for buying a good camera ], politics, architecture, music, movies and what else I don’t know.

Lets go for a ride then and make our own paths. Let us free men all men by ensuring the last priest, imam, rabbi or religious minister is without employment.

The host welcomes all comments and ideas and asks that we be civil even when we disagree.

    Hello my dear friend from Nairobi,

    Could you email me your home address please—if you don’t mind? I like to mail to you a print copy of my new novel Song of the Ankle Rings. It will ship direct from either Amazon USA. or UK

    You’ve been very supportive and offered great encouragement with your comments on my blog posts regarding this novel. Please allow me to do this.

    You can see my yahoo email address linked to my comment.

    Thank you,
    Eric

    I am glad to read a blog from Nairobi – hopefully a fellow Luo. The article you quoted was offensive to all humans. However, a relationship with God is much more than religion or a church or one man’s viewpoint. I hope He will reveal himself to you. Thank you for defending Africa so gallantly.

      Hello Sarah, yes I am Luo.
      I am thankfully waiting for no god to reveal herself to me except maybe if she is female and can dance. And should have Luo relatives

        I have been looking at your response for the last few months & wondering what to say. I have been a church member for a long time hoping to transition to teaching & preaching God’s word full time in the next few months. My blog is all about God’s word. I believe God is my very reason for being. Even though we are both descended from Ramogi , it is almost as if we are from 2 different planets. Thanks for responding to my post.

          I wish you all the very best on that journey.
          One minor quibble is we are not all descendants of Ramogi but that is a made up history.

            Sorry about that. I always believed that we all are. I used to listen to Luo radio in Kenya and the hosts always called their listeners Nyikwa Ramogi. I always assumed I was one. I actually don’t know who Ramogi is except the fact that Oginga Odinga was normally referred to as Jaramogi.

              Yes, that wasn’t accurate information, unfortunately. The Luos entered Kenya through different points. There is a lot that entered through Ramogi hills, but others didn’t. And I guess you recall the 4 major nigration groups- jo KaJok, jo Kowiny, and others.

            I just read your site – the about page. I have a million questions. How did you become an atheist/naturalist. I lived in Kenya for years and I don’t believe there is a single atheist in Kenya. I admit we have several religions but atheists don’t exist. How can you live in Kenya and be an atheist. I live in New York and New York is as secular as Gomorrah. But my idea of Nairobi is this beautiful city in the sun with lots and lots of bible believing churches. When I lived in Nairobi I did not belong to a single church. I had one church for morning prayer, another for lunch hour fellowship, a different one for evening prayer and another for overnight prayer meetings! Let’s not forget the occasional whole week prayer retreats. I may have missed out on a portion of the Kenyan population. Well, you leave me baffled.

              This has left me laughing.
              You would be surprised. There are a number of atheists in Nairobi and in Kenya generally. It is only hard to tell we are around because we are not loud.
