I used to do this thing as a kid where I ask myself some really mind-blowing impossible questions and after almost driving myself insane while trying to answer these questions on my own, I always ended up arriving at the same answer I had before I even started thinking about the questions, that there simply is no answer to somethings.
I remember one night where I just laid on my bed and asked my self that if in the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth, where was he staying before and where did he come from. I remember later asking my dad the same question and the man didn't even stress himself trying to give me a reasonable answer, he just asked me to leave him alone. He probably was thinking that I was asking a question too big for my age or I just wanted to embarrass him as dad's are suppose to know everything.
Anyway it's been a while I asked myself any of those questions until today when I was reading through the topic suggestions channel in the Hive Learners discord server. Someone had said something about how we feel the world would have been if there was no God, basically if there was nothing like religion.
The truth is unlike every other questions that I've asked myself in the past that always seems impossible to answer, this one looks like the easiest to answer because I feel like a world without religion, where people do things based on good and bad will be the best place to live in because that way, people wouldn't justify a lot of bad things that they do with religion.
Religion is actually one of the big problem we have over here in Africa (especially in Nigeria) because when we should be doing things by ourselves, things that will change our country, we're busy somewhere in a church praying for things to change, things that we know will never change if we don't get up and change it ourselves. Probably why the politicians keep stealing and we just do nothing other than pray they change.
So yeah, I feel that a world without religion will be a good one because people will be more focused on getting things done because they all know that if they don't do it themselves, no one else will unlike today where everyone is always expecting some sort of miracle to happen while they do nothing.
