Re: Math and science lifted India

Ada-Boy,

You must learn to read carefully what is the source of your criticism before responding unfairly to it. You agree with me so I don't understand the basis of your opposition.

This is what I conclude in the above article, which has not as yet ran off this wall:

'I do not believe in religions but am interested to search their cultural significances. What is germane is, that although our traditional abosum, like all religions - including, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism – are mythical. They are unrealistic, spiritual bugaboo (object of fear or alarm; a bogey). But they do have some importance and relevance to our traditional cultural and economic sectors. I propose their replacement with the sustainable political ideologies, of Socialism and Pan-Africanism. Ghana needs a people-based, mobilising, motivating, science and technology-fuelled, manufacturing focused, industrialized, export based economy.'

You echo exactly what I say here, 'What religion has powered Singapore,Malaysia,south Korea and Thailand? They all have religion of somekind but their economic growth and development is powered by hard work while embracing science and maths.'

Science and technology implied an advance knowledge of science and maths. The mobilisation of all our people to implement the 10-15 year Development and Modernisation Programme, implied HARD WORK - WORK AND HAPPINESS as Dr. Nkrumah's CPP called it in the 1960s.

This is the thrust of what I have stated in this article.

Regards.
