This is how much damage religion/faith has done to the minds of many.
How many times have i been criticised here in Nigeria for being a ''freethinker''? Science is logical reasoning, yet religion demands absolute unquestioning obedience and it seems that the more unreal something is, the more it is worthy of respect and the more people will believe it. How theh ell does that work?
Science encourages people to question and reason, yet many religious crackheads criticise me like ''don't believe in science and logic''? Do they actually realise what they are saying?
Even at the office a few weeks back when they asked me to pray after the meeting (for what?) when i actually wasnt paying attention anyway and as I pretended to pray they laughed at me (cos of my accent I guess) and I just came out and said ''why are you laughing, I'm not the delusional one''.
They asked whether I'm a freethinker and I said I am, straight up and down and they looked at me shocked and I was like ''so what?, like its a bad thing''.
It really is a mental illnes
