The Creator’s Principle of Abundance [Pt. 1]

The Creator’s principle of abundance: “every organic that sustains life or has the ability to sustain life on earth is programmed to multiply itself exponentially”.

The simplest explanation to the Creator’s Principle of Abundance is that everything that supports life on earth, is created by nature to produce itself in abundance to sustain life. Let’s look at corn/maize, for example. Just a single seed of corn may produce a plant which potentially yields more than six hundred kernels of corn per cob (husk). The fact that a single plant produces about four cobs of corn means that mathematically, we’re looking at a production of about 2,400 kernels of corn per plant [600 kernels/cob x 4 cobs = 2,400 kernels]. So, per the Creator’s Principle of Abundance, a seed of maize can produce 2,400 of itself when cultivated.

The cob, after the kernels are harvested, can be dried and ground into powder as feed for chickens and pigs.

The plant itself, from the root to the leaves, can be converted to feeds; for chickens, goats, pigs, sheep, and cows by using a feed pellet machine.



Corn Cereal, Hausa Koko, Ayigbe Koko, Tom Brown, Corn Pancakes, Corn Bread, Oblayo, Corn Pudding, etc.


Banku, Fante Kenkey, Ga Kenkey, Agbl3 [Ewe tribe banku], Ugali [corn fufu], koki [corn Tamales], Tuo-zaai, tubani, waha, mgmera, etc.


Asana, Pito


corn starch, corn oil, corn shrubs, corn sugar, etc.

The Creator of our universe used the Principle of Abundance as the fundamental structure of our existence here on earth. Therefore, we have no excuse or reason to be poor or subject ourselves to poverty. However, laziness and failure to develop our farming and agriculture industry is the reason why majority are in poverty in Africa.

 Understanding Our Necessities of Life

From a Ghanaian Perspective

The four significant basic needs of life are food, water, clothing, and shelter. Interestingly, all these necessities are derived from agriculture and the earth’s natural resources. We do not need money to produce them. We just need our human labor, skills, and strength to provide these for every citizen of Ghana. As I pointed in Part 1, the materials for obtaining these basic needs to support our lives are freely provided by Mother Nature in abundance. So why should we live in poverty? Let us analyze these necessities one after the other, starting with food.

  • FOOD:  we derive our food from plants and animals. Fortunately, our agricultural land is about 70% arable. This means that we have the agricultural capacity to provide more foods than the needed supply for national consumption. From the point of agricultural economics, we can start with maize and cassava considering the varieties of foods we get from them. We get so many varieties of banku, kenkey, and porridge, depending on the traditional, tribal, or cultural way of preparing it. Also, we get fufu, konkonte, and Gari among other plenty foods just from these two crops. It is an undeniable fact that we eat these foods on daily basis. The reason why we are starving is because we have hectares of agricultural lands unused, but not because we are poor. Maize and cassava grow in very large quantities within a short farming period. On the same platform of agricultural economics, a well-fed Sow can give birth to 10 piglets. This means that if the country starts with 100 sows, in about 4 months, through artificial insemination, we will have 1,000 piglets, on average. Mathematically, we can obtain millions of pigs in less than 5 years, under all favorable farming conditions. Poultry farming has the potential of yielding 50X output than the pig farming. This structural example is from an integral analysis that we have the agricultural resources to provide food freely to every citizen. Yes, it is possible that we can live in a country where food is free for everyone just like the air we breathe.  
  • WATER: Water is not just a necessity of life but also an essential element for life. Why should we struggle for drinking water when we have lots of water bodies in Ghana? Desalination, a method of providing fresh water from seawater, alone can solve our water problem. We have the brains to fix our water problems, but we are acting too lazy. We should not lack drinking water when we have the Gulf of Guinea, Densu river, Pra river, Ankobra river, Volta river, Birim river, Ofin river, Sisili river, Tain river, Nini river, Mo river, Bonsa river, Bia river, Afram river, Atakora river, Tano river, Ayensu river, Daka river, Pru river, Sene river, Anum river, Kulpawn river, Weija reservoir, Todzie river, Oti river, lake Bosumtwi, lake Volta, White Volta, Black Volta, Red Volta, Aby lagoon, Keta lagoon, Sakumono lagoon, Songhor lagoon, Owabi dam, Tono dam, etc.  We just need the brains to develop the technology needed for producing drinking water from these water bodies. The bottom line is that we don’t have to pay for water.
  • Clothing: Our shoes, sandals, bags, and clothes are made from agricultural products. Most common natural clothing materials are cotton, flax, wool, ramie, silk, and denim which are obtained from plants. Other materials are leather, fur, and down for down-filled parkas, all obtained from animals. Also, rubber, bamboo jute and hemp are plants that are used for making clothes. Reinforcing materials like wood, bone, and metal from natural minerals are used in fasteners or to stiffen garments. The materials used for making shoes and bags are mostly leather from animals, wood and rubber from plants, and metals from our natural minerals. Therefore, considering the fact that the materials for providing such necessities are renewable and can be produced abundantly from nature, we don’t have to lack them. As long as plants and animals reproduce, we should be able to have enough to cover everyone.
  • Shelter: the materials required for building any type of house are fabric, glass, granite, mud and clay, rock, thatch, brush, wood, sand, twigs and leaves, brick and block, concrete, mineral aggregate (sand and gravel), and metal [we even have diamond and gold in Ghana]. We have over 30 Hardwoods in Ghana; Afram, Albizia, Asanfina, Avodire, Black Hyedua, Ceiba, Dahoma, Danta, Denya, Ebony, Edinam, Emeri, Celtis, Guarea, Kaku/Ekki, Kane, Konkroma, Koto/kyere, Kusia, Mahogamy, Makore, Obaa/ohaa, Odum, Ofram, Otie, Papao, Potrodum, Tetekon, Walnut, Watapuo, Wawa, Wawabima, etc. Ghana has the woods for house construction, building boats, furnishing buildings, industrial floors, making plywood, timber mining, etc. You just name it, we have it all. We have rocks, sands, clay, and the metals for building and construction. As a matter of fact, we have all the resources abundantly.

All our necessities of life should be free for everyone. Paying for our necessities and basic needs will put stress, hardship, and burden on us. We are on earth to enjoy God’s creation. This is why He created and made provisions for all our necessities of life before creating the first man, Adam.  Food, water, clothes, and housing should be free for everyone, through collective labor and population control. Greed and man’s desire for power and control is why we are enslaved and suffering. Do you realize that, in every society, the man who controls any of our necessities is rich, has power, and strong influence over the people? I will explain how, through collective labor and population control, we can make these necessities free for all in Part 3. Thank you for reading.

The Principle of Abundance and Recycling:

The Creator built our world on the principle of Abundance and Recycling; a seed from just one fruit is capable of reproducing hundreds of its kind, and the food-waste from animals goes back into the soil as fertilizer/manure. In some cases, we have had manures produce plants (without the seeds), when mixed with certain soils. Also, we have encountered situations where a special soil was obtained after grinding certain trees to powder form.

A Return to the Garden of Eden

From a Ghanaian Perspective  [part 1]

A Return to the Garden of Eden, A Ghanaian Perspective. [Part 1]

All the basic necessities of life are abundantly given by Mother Nature. The Air we breathe, water for supporting lives, plants for foods and medicines, animals for meats, and all the materials needed for constructing shelters are  freely provided. So why are we suffering? The people who complain bitterly about the problems in our societies without offering any meaningful solutions are even worse than the problems. For example, when a “clueless adult” talks to ten children about our daily problems, he/she creates awareness in ten minds regarding our problems. Sadly, it becomes a chain reaction. This is why most Ghanaians know the problems and challenges  facing the country, but lack the technical solutions to the problems.  Politicians and public leaders are generally perceived corrupt and tagged as  thieves, because the society is made to believe that they are the cause of our problems. Corruption is everywhere. “Man is made from dust” and as long as he eats, drinks, sleeps, and reproduces, he will forever be corrupt. The question, “why are we suffering?”, can only be answered when we gain full knowledge and understanding of the basic necessities of life, why they are very important, and how to create them. This is how we can return to the Garden of Eden and stay there permanently.

LARD: The Pig fat better than butter.

What in the world is a Lard?

 Lard is simply a pig fat in rendered [rendering is a process that converts waste animal tissue into stable, value added materials] and unrendered forms.Sources

This can be obtained from any part of the pig where there is a significant amount of body fat.Grades

  1. Highest Grade: also called ‘Leaf lard’ is obtained from the fatty areas surrounding the kidneys and inside the loin. Usually, it has very little to no pork flavor, which makes it ideal for use in baked goods.
  2. High Grade: this lard is obtained from the fatback, referred as the hard subcutaneous fat between the back skin and the muscle of the pig.
  3. Low Grade: this is obtained from the soft caul fat surrounding digestive organs, such as small intestines. Caul fat is often used as wrapping for roasting lean meats or in the manufacturing of pate [a mixture of cooked ground meat and fat minced into a spreadable paste].

Rendering Types

  • Wet: the wet process of rendering lard is by boiling the pig fat in water or steaming it at a high temperature. The lard, which is insoluble in water, is skimmed off the surface of the mixture or separated in an industrial centrifuge.
  • Dry: in dry rendering, the fat is exposed to high heat in a pan or oven without the presence of water.

The difference is that the Wet-rendered lard has a more neutral flavor, a lighter color, and a high smoke point. On the other hand, the Dry-rendered lard is a more browned in color and flavor, and has a lower smoke point.Uses

Useful for cooking because it produces little smoke when heated and has a distinct flavor when combined with other foods. It’s often preferred over other types of shortening due to its flavor and range of applications.
Rendered lard can be used to produce biofuel and soap.Benefits

  • Has a fantastic flavor.
  • Has range of applications than the others.
  • It has less saturated fat than butter.
  • Gives fried chicken and roasted vegetables a better taste.
  • Does not impact a pork flavor.
  • It is sustainable
  • Has one-fourth the saturated fat and over twice the mono-unsaturated fat as butter.
  • It is low in Omega-6 fatty acids, known to promote inflammation. 
  • Foods fried in lard absorb less grease.
  • Produces ultra-flasky pastry crust.

Descriptive Analysis

 Pig milk is the milk naturally produced by pigs. By composition, it is very similar to that of a cow. A pig milk contains a fat percentage of 8.5 as compared to 3.5% of fat in cow’s milk. This means that, in percentage wise, a pig milk has a fat of 5% more than a cow’s. Despite the small difference in fat percentage, mathematically there is approximately 59% change in fat composition [((8.5-3.5)/8.5) x 100%] although they are different biological species.
The production difference in pigs is that pigs with high intake of protein-consumption produce more milk than pigs on low-protein diets. Also, the level of colostrum, in terms of protein, fat, and lactose is about the same in cow milk. But pig milk is more watery than that of a cow’s. And compared to goat milk, pig milk is more gamy [gamy: has a strong flavor or smell of the animal, i.e the pig in this case.


 Pig milk cheese is a special delicious cheese made with pig milk. 


 It is pointed out that Susanna Montgomery, the Countess of Eglinton, used to wash her face with pig milk and drink it. Historically, she made strong recommendation of it to others with the believe that it would help retain one’s figure and complexion.

The Importance of Pigskin

Some Uses of A Pig’s Skin

Pigskin also commonly referred to as Berkshire or Boarskin is a leather fabric made from a pig’s skin. The patterns of pigskin in the market can be finished, tanned, raw, wet salted, dry salted, embossed, printed, coated, polished, and wet blue. These are grouped into two types; Grain and Split.  

A Split Leather (Suede): the first leather removed from the hide of the pig is extremely thick. Therefore, the leather must be split cross-sectionally into layers. The bottom layer is made into what is called “split-leather”.

Advantages of Split-leather:

  • High abrasion resistance due to its dense fibers and ability to lock together
  • Has great puncture resistance
  • More water resistant than grain leather

 Grain Leather: is the top layer of the leather after it has been split apart.

Advantages of Grain Leather:

  • More expensive than the split-leather which means the farmer makes more money.
  • It is often used in the areas that receive more wear since its fiber is thicker and more compact than that of split-leather.

Properties of Pigskin, compared to the leather fabric of other animals

  • Very soft and breathable
  • Flexible
  • Durable and strong
  • Water and moisture resistance
  • Pliable
  • Oil and stain repellent

Uses of a Pigskin

  1. Industrial Use:
  • Gloves: – palm gloves, security gloves, general working gloves, construction gloves, cooking gloves, driving gloves, protection gloves, etc.
  • Leather jackets
  • Shoes and shoe linings
  • Garments
  • Footballs
  • Bookbindings
  • Wallets and purses
  • Bags
  • Furniture/sofa
  • Belts
  • Car seat covers
  • Hats

         2.Medicinal Uses

  • Collagen: this is the most abundant protein in human bodies. It is found in the muscles, bones, skin, and other places in animals. It helps give the skin strength and elasticity, along with replacing dead skin cells.  Exogenous collagen [collagen from external/outside source, such as getting it from the pigskin] is used for medical and cosmetic purposes, including the repair of body tissues, as well as skin beautification.
  • Gelatin: is a mixture of peptides and proteins produced by partial hydrolysis of collagen extracted from the skin, bones, and connective tissues of animals such as domesticated cattle, chicken, pigs, etc. It supports skin, hair and nail growth, among numerous health benefits.
  • Replacing skin of burn victims: researchers are now using pigskin and miniatures inbred pigs in human transplant, neural developments, and plastic surgery.

There are so many useful things to derive from pigskin. Maybe a thorough research will enable us to discover more . So, technically, one could have a ball, boot, leather pant, leather jacket, bag, wallet, and a hat from just a pigskin. Hmm!  very interesting. This shows that after all, ‘swagging’ isn’t that expensive.

Debunking the Taboos of Eating Pork [Part 3]

 Disliking Pork on the grounds of Islamic [Quran] Laws

The Quran does not point to any concrete religious reason for prohibiting pork. As a matter of fact, in the entire Quran book, the instruction is given once, in 2:173 and backed in 5:3, 6:145, and 16:115. In summary, Surah al-Baqarah 2:173, Surah al-Md’idah 5:3, and Surah al-Nahl 16:115 warn that “He [Allah] has only forbidden to you dead animals, blood, the flesh of swine, and that which has been dedicated to other than Allah. But whoever is forced by necessity, neither desiring it nor transgressing, there is no sin upon him. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful”. (Quran :173). Emphatically, the Quran points out in 6:145 that the prohibition is strictly made to ensure that people maintain good health. It is a matter of common-sense to understand why dead animals are not to be eaten. 

The people at that time had no proper veterinary service and medical knowledge to understand the nature of certain strange animal diseases.  We do know that when an animal dies of a disease, there is a higher tendency that people who consume the animal’s meat might contract the same disease. Similarly, Surah al-Ma’idah 5:3 includes the prohibition of animals devoured by beasts or preys. The health-base explanation to this prohibition is that certain animals have poisonous attacking mechanisms that they use on their victims. 

Also, animals that sustain cut injury or open wound during attack or in a fight may be exposed to infections. Whether infected or poisoned, eating such animals will result in a dire health. These are part of the reasons why such prohibition is made.  As discussed in part 2, the pig was prohibited because of its inability to chew the cud. And we can understand from it that the whole law on food selection is for the betterment of our health.

The Quran reiterates that “whoever is forced by necessity, neither desiring it nor transgressing, there is no sin upon him” to assure us that there is no religious curse on eating a pig. My interest is in the phrase “forced by necessity”. Necessity, by definition, is an indispensable thing or the fact of being required. Considering the rate at which our population is increasing, we need farm animals that have the physical capacity to withstand adverse environmental and agricultural conditions, and with the ability of reproducing many offspring within a brief period to help us reduce hunger and starvation in our country. Pig is agriculturally economical and has proven to solve food crisis in the advanced countries.

 It is high time we start thinking constructively for the betterment of our lives, instead of being slaves to some laws that were written thousands of years ago to guide people who could not reason for themselves. 

 It is really a shame to term this food “haram”. There are thousands of children in the northern parts of Ghana that need to be saved from hunger and starvation. Together, we can do better for Ghana. We should change  our primitive way of thinking and be rational, if we want to develop in every aspect of life.

Debunking the Taboos of Eating Pork [Part 2]

 Disliking Pork on the grounds of Christian Doctrines

We Christians quote God’s command in the Bible as the reason for not eating pork. Emphatically, the book of Leviticus 11 and Deuteronomy 14:7-8 are often quoted as the reference points for our stand against having anything to do with pig. We highlight on the fact that God considered the pig unclean and instructed the people at that time to refrain from eating it. Biblically, Deuteronomy 14:7-8 and Leviticus 11: 4-8 issue the same warning: “the pig is also unclean; although it has a divided hoof, it does not chew the cud. You are not to eat their meat or touch their carcasses”. From these texts, we can deduce that the instruction was centered on the CUD. Why was the CUD used as a factor and element for classifying pig an unclean animal? To answer this, we first need to understand what a CUD is, and its effects on animals.

A CUD is a partly digested food returned from the first stomach of ruminants to the mouth for further chewing. Basically, it is just a portion of food that returns from a ruminant’s stomach to the mouth to be chewed for a second time. This is specifically done to enable proper digestion of the food. Cud chewing is important because the foods animals eat could be difficult to digest and takes extra effort to absorb all nutrients from the food.

Literally, ruminants like cows, goats, and sheep will not chew the cud if we break their food into the simplest form before feeding them. For example, if we grind grass to a powder form and feed it to ruminants, their rumen muscle will not send any part of the food back to the mouth for rechewing because the food has already been broken down.

According to history, ancient farmers allowed animals to feed for themselves, under their supervision. The farmers will take the animals out in search of food and water.  So, the need for a structural law to guide people on what meat to consume was because the farmers were not regulating or controlling the foods of the animals. Hence, the need to make the law from the perspective of the animals’ feeding system, to keep people [consumers] healthy and safe from diseases.

The second part of the law, in reference to the “divided hoof”, was based on the biological nature of the animals. The chemicals that coordinate the biological make-up of the physical body of one animal could be a poison in another animal, when consumed. The pig made the cut and is exempted from this aspect of the law because it has a divided hoof. This literally means that a pig that feeds solely on simplest broken-down organic food is equally a clean animal.

In comparison, this is just like us, Christians. Per the Old Testament of the Bible, God specifically warned, instructed, and commanded the Jews not to have anything doing with the gentiles. This is because all nations, in exception of the Jews, were regarded as evil and filthy before the Almighty God. Then Jesus Christ came to wash away our sins, renewed us, and taught us the ways that please God. Practically, a reference to this account is recorded in Acts 10 when God taught Apostle Peter not to refer to any gentile as an unclean being again.

So, to all my fellow Christians who quote the Bible as a reference point for disliking pig, I will strongly advice that you reconsider your stand from a common-sense perspective so you don’t make a mess of yourself among rational people.
