Hey all, looking back I'm glad my first thread on this topic went well. Anyways, now I'll ask how a 'No Islam scenario would affect Africa', immensely I imagine. For a POD, once again Mohammed either never begins his teachings, or he just dies early. Whatever works. So here are some of my predictions off the bat. Catholicism spreading to the Sahel and West African Kingdoms like Mali and Ghana. (Via Berbers) Ethiopia/Axum being a regional power in the Indian Ocean. The Swahili coast adapting Syriac/Coptic Christianity from Axum and whatever (likely) Christian Arabian state/s emerge. Along with most of East Africa getting absorbed as a new fringe in the greater Christian world. Now, some questions. Any chance for Zoroastrianism, Buddhism, or another religion to exist as a minority on the east coast? Could Christianity spread a little deeper into Madagascar, and the southern and lake kingdoms of Africa? How connected culturally, technologically, and politically will these alternate African states be with everyone else? Is there still a massive slave trade from East Africa, the Sahara, and Atlantic? (If the Americas are still discovered by Europeans wishing to trade more easily, and if they still establish New World cash crop plantations) If so, how does this affect African, Middle Eastern, and European relations and views of each other? Thanks again!
