How Do Religion Lead Nigerians Backward ?.

Please this is a very objective thread, i believe is important if we can see some of the ways, religion or the believe in God is leading us  backward, i so much believe nothing will move us forward than the knowledge of what is leading  us backward,  we have all debated for or against religion in Nigeria on numerous occasions, so this thread is dedicated excluisively to discuss the negative effects religion have on us both individually and collectively,

objective responces are highly welcomed ,please no bashing , thanks all.

I don't know what you are on about with your post, but the major harm religion is causing is right at the level of our psyche. The damage religion is doing to us on the inside is being presented to us on the outside as a reflection. The decaying state of our nation is a reflection of our damaged psyche, and the damage is being done by the toxic doctrines of the two imported religions that nigerians adhere to.

Are nigerians' collective psyche being damaged on a large scale via religious indoctrinations or not? That is the main issue here.

Religion is not our problem and I wouldn't accept any relative cause to religion. Infact, things would be better if our leaders get orientation about religion. No true religion promotes stealing except the satanic ones.

You should substitute Nigerians for humanity. It makes it sound as if we were a separate case though there is credit to this reasoning also. Religion can be defined many a way but it is only harmful if you can't keep your delusions to yourself. And I say delusions because we are all deluded depending on who's looking. Nothing can be proven. So as long as you accept that one man's delusion is not inferior or superior to your own all will be well and the world will be a better place but unfortunately this is not the case.

Also your thread title says how. Well, Mr. Yerima (the ) married a 13 year old and some of us are outraged, some are defensive and some are indignant but the buffoon has gotten away with it if I'm not mistaken. Cozy somewhere laughing at us all. That is an example. It can be debated the legality of his marriage in Islamic terms and even in Christian terms and certainly in Jewish terms but the fact of the matter is that the scallywag is a Nigerian senator and should respect the Nigerian constitution and put his 'religious' belief on the back burner or wait at least till his tenure is over. He should be punished to the full extent of the law and perhaps even more sternly by virtue of his position. But is this the case? I am not aware. Who will watch the watchers?

I heard of a debacle involving the murder of kids accused of being witches. This reminds me of stake burnings. I never heard of anybody getting punished. I hope such people were brought to book.

These are good examples of the wrong religion does to a people (Nigerian too)

We have been made to believe much more in an external mythical father figure in the sky, and to discard almost totally the belief in ourselves to deal with our day to day challenges. That is a disastrous way to live and we are seeing the results live.

Things that deserve common sense are left to God, a man won't get insurance to take care of his family because God is the best insurer. . .
