Why the hypocrisy?  Why practicing Religions introduced to us by westerners beyond their  teachings? Who knows Jesus Christ amongst you all?  Or has any of you ever come across any Holy Prophet? In all the Prophets mentioned  in both holy books, was any of the Prophet born in Nigeria? Are we genuinely following the teachings of the Bible or Quran?

Why so  much hate, consistent killings, and reoccurrence of ugly happenings that question our humanity!? We are so blinded by religious sentiment, once your religion is involved; what is Right is Wrong and what is Wrong is very Right?  Who are you trying to impress by turning into a blinded or misguided fanatic?

China is a country in East Asia and the world’s most populous country, with a population of around 1.404 billion. Covering approximately 9,600,000 square kilometers, it is the third-or fourth-largest country by total area.

In China 73.5% of her population virtually has no religion! 15%  practice Buddhism, 2.53% and 0.45 Practicing Christianity and Islam respectively. With such population of atheists, yet they are law abiding, disciplined and their country is not lacking in terms of technology, security, good economy.

As a matter of fact, Science and technology in China has made rapid advances in areas such as education, infrastructure, high-tech manufacturing, academic publishing, patents, and commercial applications and it is now in some areas and by some measures a world leader. I read it online yesterday that China now has the fastest train in the world, a train faster than airplane(unconfirmed). A country that knows  No God, they don’t attend churches or mosques  yet their country is not as worst as ours!

What about India?  The second-most populous country, and the most populous democracy in the world.

India is aggressively working towards establishing itself as a leader in industrialisation and technological development.  India is among the topmost countries in the world in the field of scientific research, positioned as one of the top five nations in the field of space exploration. Sophisticated equipments of advanced technology.  Haven’t you wondered why politicians are being flown to India for operations and other health  related issues?
In India, 79.8% of her population practice Hinduism as a Religion (Idol worshipers), 14.2% Islam and 2.3% Christianity!

Our colonial masters didn’t only rape our ancestors in Africa, they raped their brains by introducing religion that has eaten deep into our common sense. They make us see religion as the ultimate and once any soul question its existence, such person automatically becomes a lifetime enemy. We practice Religion in Nigeria blindly like it is some sort of fraternity. Attack each other on daily basis and get the weakest of all judgements once Religions is involved! ‘Who do us like this?’

We respect religion above our existence. We choose religions above humanity. Same thing Peter does freely in Calabar if he dare tries it in Kano?  He is a dead man? Sad!

Check the world leading countries today, they give no hoot about what we are practicing to the brim here! They are advancing on daily basis, improving on their technologies. They don’t ask their children to draw phones at 6, they teach them how to couple phone parts. Children are more practically oriented than mandating funny theories on them. 

May God forgive the Lecturer that so much forced Adjustment Computation, such robust calculation on me when he sure knows I have alternatives concentrating more on the instruments! So much theoretical formulae yet not even a single real world appliance. All the life cockroaches,rats I brought for experiment in secondary school, to what end?

Was Nigeria as worst as this in the years of Sango and Amadioha? When you instantly run mad after stealing and making false confession in the shrine, Or where your Manhood hooks during intercourse with a married woman? When there were consequences for fornication and adultery?
