    Somalis are not culturally acceptable of Science, I saw this guy in the political section who considers 'changing positions' as 'guul-daro' or 'something negative'. Isn't science about changing positions if the evidence changes, isn't about developing new theories when new evidence is encountered? Isn't facts not 'consistent' and evolves? This guy basically has come against some of the basic principles required for a mind to be scientific, he cannot evolve his thought, it's stuck in one place of extreme end, so do not expect many wonders from Somalis, well especially those who do not know the concept of 'tanasul'.

    They see tanasul as 'defeat' it's because they're mind are 'hard wired' to an extreme end position of 'zero sum'. I know this mind-set it's called primitive animalistic brain, even animals have this mind-set. It's cuz Somalis think along the lines of blood relations which is fine but the world isn't your family how you going to get along with them? the possibility of getting along is slim as this person will need to isolate from the rest of the world and not take advantage of the world knowledge pool, which is what most likely happened to Somalis during the civilization age of the western world, they possibly preferred isolation as they were not prepared to evolve to new concepts. We still have this form of thinking handed down to us genetically and it's still hard wired in some.

    Any ideas how we make science acceptable in Somali thought which means they must accept 'defeat' if evidence is provided to them and evolve with whatever solution is provided even if it is against they're emotional or blood based animalistic thought? if we can't, it's going to be difficult to progress and regression is only possible while world moves on, we stay backwards.

    The early europeans before the enlightment also considered scientists witches or evil people or they demonised them for changing they're mind-sets because they thought this idea of 'tanasul' was new to them, they preferred the 'zero sum' game of going out into the field and battling it out like men. We still have this thought in Somalia, it's quite scary. I don't mind zero sum hadu xal keenayo, but it's not in Somalia, it's time wasting and there is no goal being achieved accept regression. Somalis are in the dark ages the traits are even observable in Somalispot. Let's pray the science kids can wake the people up this is the only way humans progress is to evolve, change, and accept defeat and then accept solutions even if it's against they're views or emotions or they're family bonds

    First, decrease the poverty ratio to an acceptable level so it can be managed where any incoming crisis can be handled domestically without any external help, increase the literacy rate, and provide basic education.

    These steps would change the outlook of the average Somali significantly, and people would be more receptive to new ideas. Poor people have no time to be open to new stuff when their immediate situation is stress-inducing.
