"I am happy I am an Atheist' - Seun Kuti says

An Atheist is someone who does not believe in the existence of a supreme being, (God) or beings (gods). Seun explains why he is happy to be one in a message he posted on Facebook yesterday

    1. Atheism in itself is even slowly turning into some radical movement, a religion of bashers of other religions,
      Agnosticism is the way forward.
      According to me: an agnostic is someone who is neither theist or atheist, someone with a free mind, open to nature and stuff like that.
      Life is so much less complicated as an agnostic

      Its Agnosticism;we are clearly connected.This just made my day!

    4. Evolution is a failed theory. I strongly believe so after an on-going research into its basis and nuances. I find it ironic that a theory with materialistic underpinnings has to be taught in a religious context (ie Nigeria).

  11. Trust me I can pretty much relate to every thing dude said.
    Organised religion is deceptive,look at the way Christians castigate Muslims,calling them fanatics and murderers.If only those Christians knew what Crusaders did to non-Christians in the past;they did even worse than what Muslim fanatics are doing today.
    Muslims call non-Muslims Kafirs forgetting that God(if truly there's one)does not have a religion.
    We have been blinded by the teachings of religions and our minds conformed to doctrines that set non-adherents lower than us.
    With that said,to each his own...you wanna be Christian,Muslim,Pagan,Jew,Hindu or whatever,its totally ok by me but please for the love of whatever you serve,don't impose on any man your beliefs and stop thinking you are any better than another because he's of a different religious background.

  15. LoL so you're an atheist is like biting the finger that fed you. Do you think you came to this earth by accident? I'm not a religious person though I am a christian. I am Gods child and I believe in him and worship him without the limitations and man made doctrines of religion. But God says in the holy bible, do not judge any man. So I only pray for your salvation before its too late.

  20. He has a point. African Traditional religion, in most cases, restricts you from expressing your wills and desires, no matter how innocent they are. On the other hand, the "foreign" religion grants you this freedom, but the adherents of this religion behave waywardly in most cases. So it's a case of "Bad god watching over good people" and "Good God watching over bad people". Both cases are devoid of complete trust, which is actually a virtue that should associate any religion. Then why "subject" yourself to one? Well, that's his own, he has a point. As for me and my house, we will serve THE SUPREME BEING.

  22. Seun, you speak from the sincerity and courage of your heart.

    There is certainly no credible evidence that man is in the image of the force or forces that created the cosmos or that such force is the least bit concerned with and paternally intervenes in man's affairs and is summonable through prayer, incantation, mass, service, ritual or whatever other names such similar psychological recourse is known by. If it were otherwise, Nigeria, with its legions of pastors and church/fellowship on every street would be one of the most progressive countries on the planet.

    On the cosmic scale, this planet is no more than the equivalent of a particle of a dust mote. Someone asked above how/why you think we came about. The truth for now is that we simply do not know. That we do not know is not valid licence for the asserting speculation as fact as is done in the book of Genesis. Our habitation of this planet may well be no different from bacteria fungus and other micro-organisms propagating in a pot of soup that has cooled and has been left out unrefrigerated. The creation stories in the old testament are Hebrew myths no more believable than the creation myths that abound in other tribes.

    Most commentators who will spew "righteous" indignation here are different from you only for their lack of candour and abject hypocrisy. Many are merely conforming with an indoctrinated/expected societal facade of religiousness and do not in the depths of their heart believe with any firm certainty.

  51. Seun, If you believe in Traditional religion, You aint an atheist. The Concept of a Higher Power has always been mans way of explaining things that appear beyond understanding. That is why in all the names of this power (God) it is usually explanatory. Like Chineke, Jehovah, Osanobua etc. The only difference in religions is the way of getting to this Being. Christianity believes that Jesus is the Only Way! Traditionalists believe in whatever intermediaries as represented by the carvings. Even the Greeks believed in a community of Gods with Zeus being the Father of Gods. You need to educate yourself before making senseless comments. Being Atheist is not the same thing as not being a Christian.

  53. Many religious people believe that we have to be religious to be moral. However, a child rapist and murderer can confess their sins on death row and become a follower and be allowed into heaven to live forever in bliss, where as I could lead a decent life as a good person and a sceptic of religion and be given the worst punishment possible - burning (the worst pain) for ever (for the longest time). Not believing in god does not make people want to go out and commit crime. those who do not commit crime and horrendous acts because theyre afraid of the punishment from god are sickos. society has rules and laws and retribution that does not require religious input.

  61. Hahaha lol Naija and religion hmmm...Anyways that's why yall have the kinda government u got ...oh and the richest pastors in the world too ;). jussaying!

    On a more delicate note, Africans had their gods before the white men came over with a different brand which we eventually accepted cause the white men can do 'wonders' (3D things hehe!!:D) there4 their God must be great + its an easy faith to follow compared to the demanding religion we had. they threw us a bone so as to get what they really wanted i.e our crops, art/craft, natural resources and our people. makes sense on how they unified the ibo land-OIL, yoruba region-ART and hausa territory-FOOD. now they are 400 years more advanced than our people (thanks to our hard working akpobi men;)anyways, no be the religion them they slowly abandon so? now they r focusing on realistic matters while our people are still hugging on to it. not saying i dont believe in a supreme being o, but i think Africans-Nigerians in particular take it to the extreme. as a result, here we are. if only we can take sometime and deal with reality before supernatural wahala our country will at the tippy-top. unfortunately its not so...we more like the case of the bean vendors pikin who can never afford to eat beans. ironic eh?
