The Tokoloshe is more real than God
Millions of believers keep them both alive, Some believers in God also believe in the Tokoloshe. I remember as a child seeing the Domestic Engineer raising her bed on paint cans so that the tokoloshe couldn't reach.
Just that action speaks to me of real fear, the kind that can debilitate a human being in the dark. Have you ever been in bed and heard strange noises, not having the courage to investigate? Have you thought, As long as they leave me alone they can have the TV, This is the fear I am talking about.
The tokoloshe gets news coverage, Headlines in newspapers shout TOKOLOSHE STEALS MY LOVERS HEART, TOKOLOSHE RAPES GOGO 88. I have seen heaslines like these and more, In fact According to an article by Irukandji on News24 The tokoloshe lives with a Silverton doctor and amateur footage of the Tokoloshe has made TV news.
No footage of God exists, Searching for News about God, All I find is religious websites, God doesn't make the headlines, yet the Tokoloshe does, Seems to me that the Tokoloshe is more real than God.
Christians, Muslims and other Religious folks scoff at the Tokoloshe as a primitive superstition, yet in the same breath they will tell you about talking snakes, donkeys and burning bushes. Pray tell what is the difference between these and a monster that lives under a bed?
