I was a believer at some point in life and much like all true Atheists I found myself with more questions than answers after carefully reviewing much of all these holy books.
I then turned to science and quickly started to realise that a lot of the extraordinary phenomenon occurring in life weren’t that mind blowing but simply natural occurrences that were lost to our ancestors due to...well, simply ignorance.
I completely disagree with Pastor Richard Gasana with his contention that somehow rejecting religion is a result of unfortunate experiences with the clergy. Well that, and the fact that the very foundation of that clergy is a fallacy, a myth.
I’m glad to hear that my fellow Rwandans are seeing the truth, however few they may be.
