Do You Belief In Wichcraft?

I read a book 'Belief in Witchcraft' which dwelled on how belief in witchcraft was brought to naught in western world and how Africans are still being backward because of their belief in witchcraft. An example was cited of how pastors in Akwa-Ibom State would tell parents that their child is a witch and the child is flogged to death in many cases, which the author said led to enactment of the child right Act in the state. this is a story as told by McVeigh:

[center]The chief's niece, Mbet, was declared a witch when she was eight. her mother Ekaete, made her drink olive oil, then poisoned berries, then invited local men to beat her with sticks. the pastor padlocked her to a tree but unlocked her when her mother could not find the money for a deliverance. Mbet fled. Mbet, now 11, says she has not seen the woman since, adding: ' My mother is a wicked mother.'[/center]

I sort of believe in 'witchcraft' but I'm afraid not in the same sense I suspect here and not even as hard. Any belief in God sort of requires the belief in negative spiritual forces. So in a word, if you believe in God you ought to believe in 'witchcraft'. Witchcraft is overrated but it is not non-existent.

If you put 'ebo' in my room, I'll pick it up and throw it in the trash can and apart from wondering who put it there, I'll sleep like a baby that night. However, I will not enter any shrine for no reason. Why take the chance, eh?

Witchcraft has never been demonstrated anywhere in the world.It's fear that makes people in underdeveloped countries to just keep believing in it.

I have never experienced it

I am not experiencing it.

I will never experience it.

Because it does not exist.

A believe in witchcraft is an act of ignorance.

Witchcraft/juju/magic/metaphysical abilities/etc do not exist.
