There certainly were enough signals to tell us he is an "asshole, anarchist, misogynistic atheist". Thanks, Joseph, for your help with language. I certainly lack that skill!  

Qiana, I am glad you picked up on the Facebook clue. I missed it as well.

Yeah, Joseph, that is common among Africans.  I have had a few con men approach me on Facebook.

Just for the record, Dominic asked me the same thing.  I told him I'd gladly do his leg work on this side of the puddle, but that I was emphatically NOT made of money and that bucks would have to be supplied up front before anything happened.  Seems he didn't care for that statement, because I heard nothing further from him.

The REAL shame is that we've had others here from African nations who have comported themselves WAY better.

Something vaguely akin to borderline-personality disorder perhaps, ɟǝןıx?

What about the overly-formal, effusive manner of his?  I'm not sure if that's a sort of preemptive fallback position in case the first line of his con doesn't work or if that's simply a cultural thing with Nigeria and some other African nations.

Yup, when Richard kicks someone off of the site, all of the traces of that person's account go away, too.  I suspect that it's a characteristic of the Ning platform, which this site is based upon.

As for all of the Christian stuff on his Facebook page ... I suppose that it's possible that it's a cover for his real lack of belief, to his wife, family, friends, etc., if Nigeria is really that hostile to nonbelievers.  It wouldn't be the first time that someone has had to construct a cover like that.

At this point, though, I don't really care.  If someone is a really nice person and shares most of my political positions and social perspectives, but that person happens to be a liberal believer, I'll be much more likely to want to hang out with that person, rather than some asshole, anarchist, misogynistic atheist.

Qiana, I don't find any of Dominic's posts, which is OK by me. If he insulted Dr. Meaden, that goes way too far. Terry is a fine gentleman, honest, courteous, and a very dear friend of mine from the Atheist Nexus. 

I'm glad Dominic's cover i blown. Lies don't belong as part of the nature of our members.

That quote puts an interesting spin on his activities.

Comment by Joan Denoo on June 11, 2016 at 8:52pm

Thanks, Qiana, I did not have his last name and all his comments are gone. Now, I see what you mean by swimming pool, shopping malls, and parties. The woman who appears to be his wife certainly does not have the look of joy and exuberance of Dominic. I wonder why? 

No! I don't wonder why! He is a christian and a man of means. He also is a hypocrite. 

Dominic Omenai

"Lives in Lagos, Nigeria

In one of his comments he wrote: 

"Dominic Omenai 13 January 2015 · 

"The truth does not belong to this world, the world we live in is a world of lies.The terrorists that attacked Charlie Hebdo magazine wanted to silence the truth"

What is "In the Light of Truth: The Grail Message"?

"In the Light of Truth: The Grail Message was written by Oskar Ernst Bernhardt(1875–1941) and first published in 1926 under the pen name Abdruschin. An expanded, complete edition was published by the author under the name of Abdruschin in 1931, entitled 'Im Lichte der Wahrheit (In the Light of the Truth). It was a collection of 91 lectures, written to build upon each other, presenting a complete picture of Creation. Between 1931 and 1934, a further total of 59 additional lectures were released."

Qiana, to whom do you refer? 

"After seeing his facebook page, he's not the least bit destitute."

Comment by Joan Denoo on June 11, 2016 at 2:54pm

Yes, the exchange with Dominic went on entirely too long on my part. A total waste of time when I could have been exchanging ideas with responsible people instead.

I am convinced he is a charlaton.
