The question posed to conservative televangelist Pat Robertson from a 700 Club viewer:
Why do amazing miracles (people raised from the dead, blind eyes open, lame people walking) happen with great frequency in places like Africa, and not here in the USA? What can we do to encourage those things to happen here? Is America too far gone for miracles like this? — KEN
Pat Robertson's response to Ken:
” Those people overseas didn’t go to Ivy League schools. Well, we’re so sophisticated, we think we’ve got everything figured out, we know about evolution, we know about Darwin, we know about all these things that says God isn’t real, we know about all this stuff.  And if we’d be in many schools, the more advanced schools, we have been inundated with  skepticism and secularism.  Overseas they’re simple, humble. You tell them God loves them, and they say ‘ok, he loves me’. You say ‘God will do miracles’ and they say ‘okay, we believe him.’ And that’s what God’s looking for, that’s why they have miracles.”
So now you know. The reason people in Africa have been granted the power to raise the freaking dead is because they don't have all our fancy book-learning, and God hates book-learning.

Another possible explanation is that people in certain African locales are on some occasions declared dead by non-Ivy-League educated death-declarers when they are not, in fact, dead, but shut up because Pat Robertson.
