    Congratulations on your graduation. I have a couple of questions to ask,
    As a doctor – that happens to be a Christian – that has the knowledge of the human body, disease and mutation. How is it possible not to accept evolution (something that directly contradicts your religion’s teachings).
    Also you have to admit that many other medical doctors, from Christian backgrounds, are performative Christians.

    This is a sensitive topic for many people so you could send your reply to my mail if you don’t want to answer publicly

      Hi Seun,

      Thank you for your kind message!
      In response to your first question – I cannot compare Christianity to Science because the basis of evolution is time – which God doesn’t work on. He says a 1000 years is as a day to him. Without a common variable – there is no comparison. The two are mutually distinct.

      Aside this, there is evidence of evolution all around us; so there are parts of the theory that I can corroborate with, creation however, which the Evolutionists haven’t any fixed proof of their theory, is one thing I don’t agree with. That doesn’t stop me from being able to function as a doctor.

      About the performative Christians, I don’t quite understand what you mean, would appreciate some clarity.

    The theory of evolution gives us much more proof of the origin of life than religion does. Your defence of your views as a creationist is far from convincing, but I don’t think it’s in my place to argue about your beliefs.

    Its not about being able to function as a doctor, its about well read Nigerians in scientific fields, choosing to disbelieve a theory that there’s overwhelming evidence of, simply on the basis of their religious backgrounds.

    Or in some cases such individuals actually acknowledge and eventually believe the overwhelming evidence but can’t openly admit it, because of the backlash that they are bound to receive from the religiously extremist society we’re in, hence continue acting like creationists to the public (performative Christians)
