Failed States of the Future (PBS)
In 'The Next Christendom: the Coming of Global Christianity' Philip Jenkins argues that Africa will soon become the geographical center of the Christian Faith.

Jenkins possesses so much confidence in Africa that he suggests modifying Hilaire Belloc's famous line to "Africa is the Faith."

Jenkins' optimism about the coming takeover of Christianity by the Sub-Saharan blacks has been more or less embraced by the broader Christian community. Africa is the future.

However, if Africa is the future it might be a very bleak future.

While much of Africa is already mired in chaos, major experts agree that the situation is only going to get worse.

Of the 15 countries predicted by the United States government to fail in the next 20 years, 10 of them are located in black Africa and one of them (Haiti) is a black Caribbean nation.

Will black Africa take Europe's place as the next center of Christendom. In my opinion, it's highly unlikely.


Because black Africans have genetically inherited average IQs significantly lower than those possessed by white Europeans. The population of Africa simply doesn't have the ability to produce workable social structures and systematically maintain the Christian faith without outside tutelage.
