Christianity and Igbo Traditional Burial/ Funeral Rites:  Dialogue or Conflict?

Christianity and Igbo Traditional Burial/ Funeral Rites: Dialogue or Conflict?

In this paper, we have tried to re-emphasize the relationship between culture and religion as a way of showing that western culture within which Christianity grew is not necessarily the substance of the Christian message. Because culture is that environment created by man, it includes his way of life among his fellow men, his family life, his religious life, attitudes, customs, traditions etc. As Ezeanya (1976:25), pointed out years ago, every people, no matter how backward they may be, no matter at what stage of civilization and development they may be, have a culture, a way of life peculiar to themselves, and the characteristic features of such a way of life. In that particular culture can be found elements that are naturally good, just and beautiful, elements that promote the general welfare of humanity as God’s creatures. There are also to be often side by side with the good, parts that are ‘evil’ and opposed to the temporal and spiritual well-being of man.

Interpretation of Aeromagnetic Data Over Ankpa and Nsukka Areas of Lower Benue Trough Nigeria

Interpretation of Aeromagnetic Data Over Ankpa and Nsukka Areas of Lower Benue Trough Nigeria

The aeromagnetic data of Ankpa and Nsukka areas have been interpreted qualitatively and quantitatively. The total magnetic intensity and residual intensity field showed range of magnetic anomalies which revel that the study area is magnetically heterogeneous. The Horizontal derivative showed the occurrence of subsurface liner structure which could be the presence of faults in the study area. Oasis Montaj, Microsoft and surfer 10 software were employed in the data analysis. This research work is based on high resolution of aeromagnetic data interpretation of Ankpa and Nsukka using Spectral Analysis, Source Parameter Imaging, Euler Deconvolution, forward and inverse modelling in order to obtain the residual magnetic data, estimate the depth to basement and determine the feasibility for hydrocarbon potential in the area, determine the magnetic susceptibility and possible solid minerals in the area. The result from spectral analysis shows that the depth to the magnetically deep source ranges from 2.4 to 6.6km with an overall depth of 3.953km while the depth to the shallow source ranges from 0.66 to 1.7km with overall average depth of 0.979km.The depth result from SPI ranges from -367.9m(shallow magnetic bodies) to -6412.7m(deep lying magnetic bodies).The depths of the magnetic source bodies estimated from Euler deconvolution for the three different structural index(SI=0,1 and 2 ranges from 1036.4m(out cropping magnetic bodies) to -7613.0m(deep lying magnetic bodies).The estimated depths from the forward and inverse modelling method are 522,1289,5766,710 and 1828m for profiles 1-5 with susceptibility values of 0.0146,0.0045,0.0200,0.0001 and 0.0240 SL respectively which indicate dominance of minerals like shale, pyrite, sandstone, dolomite and limestone
