Any Nigerian Girl Who Doesn't Believe In A God?

My idea of a Nigerian girl is one who is very religious/spiritual. Was wondering if there is one who really doesn't believe all these christian stories, who can face life independently and squarely without any add-ons from the church, who has developed her own morals and stand by them, who has lived the most part of her life in troubled Nigeria, Any?

Apparently you are very daft in this regard. Of course, I know the meaning of my user name!

Why don't u go tell Dick Cheney then that he's a dick? Come ON!

Sauer is a name; and BTW, the german chancellor's husband is also called sauer

This is what you state. I am curious though. If life is as sweet as you say then why is your user name sauer (German for sour) ?

As a German woman you should speak about what you know. We know that in Europe religion is sometimes seen as a mere academic exercise.where existentialist questions are raised

On the other hand, religion to Nigerian women is not some sort of academic pursuit to which they are introduced by stories, but something that is an inseparable part of their identity and environment

I told my dad: don't you know I am an atheist?

he answered: you don't even know what that word means.

Nigerian parents refuse to believe their children can have an autonomous way of thinking.

Injury? Thats if you are lucky. You will get killed. . . .People are killing their children just because someone accused them of being witches talk less of publicly ridiculing any of the imaginary gods that abound in Nigeria in public. . . .

For any Nigerian babe to openly make known her disbelief in god is like saying she is gay. Its better to keep such views to yourself rather than to make them known publicly in a country like Nigeria where u can face injury for ridiculing god in public.

Hey banom, wat makes u think am female? Evidently ur new found god hasn't enabled you with good foresight. Pray harder!

No female here!

Am male and young, and that however isn't important. What's important i seeing if there may be a female among us who isn't to be sold over to these christian stories. Am yet to hear from one who lives in Nigeria, and have often entered into arguments with friends on this.

Well in my opinion it would be very hard for you as a  Western woman with a materialistic approach to life to understand the psyche of the African woman who takes a more spiritual path.

nigerian writers of repute, whose feminist ideals ooze out of their literary style in such volume as beget magnificence. Hard to say though if these can be self-groomed on ground so hard to till/plant.

I still don't know why you are so concerned with other peoples faith. It is absolutely none of your business moreso as you call yourself an atheist.

I hate to derail, but might I suppose it's true after all the classification as the weaker one, as the overly spiritual? I'm sure women such as Adichie or Ata would resist such. BTW, these people haven't had to stay much in Nigeria

Apparently being an atheist is a turn-off for most nigerian ladies. The best option is to keep your mouth shut concerning your unbelief.

What is this obsession with another person's belief system. You are free to believe what you want and should face the consequences thereof. Everbody has to carry his or her own cross.

But I do find it odd that a self-proclaimed atheist should spend so much time debating and disussing religion.
