Wole Soyinka said “I do not say kill religion, though, I wouldn’t mind a bit if that mission could be undertaken surgically, painlessly perhaps, under anaesthesia, effectively sprayed all over the nation or perhaps during an induced pouch of religious ecstasy.

“However, one has to be realistic. Only the religiously possessed or committed would deny the obvious. The price that many have paid, not just within this society but by humanity in general, makes one wonder if the benefits have really been more than the losses.”

Soyinka said he often imagined what the world would be if religion had never been invented.( Ask yourself who invented religion and why?)

If we don't tame Muslim extremists they will kill all of us don't be afraid to call them out

Not only muslims.
It appears that Muslim fanatics are a great danger to the security of lives.


Christianity on its part is becoming a manipulating tool which is a threat to sanity.

There is nothing like a religious literate person. To be religious alone, and to believe in fairy tales which all religions profess as true suggest that the person is an illiterate. If you apply simple old-fashion common sense to question everything you have been taught in religion you will see that they are all lies and everything were just created by people who lived on this earth before us and who were trying to oppress some others .

Don't forget there were people --I mean humans living on this earth before the stories of Mohammed and Jesus emanated. In 1902 the UK discovered the first complete human skeleton in their soil.There were only recently(2018) able to test it(DNA it ) and discovered that the skeleton was around 10,000 yrs old and a skeleton of a black person(not white) . This alone further discredit religion and religious belief
Black people just need to wake up on time otherwise we will continue to live backward lives!!
