An unbeliever’s interpretation of Easter (1)

If, in a big auditorium full of people one were to ask all the Christians present who believe that the biblical story concerning the resurrection of Jesus Christ is an established historical fact to raise up their hands, I am sure all of them would do so irrespective of the denomination they belong to. Such unanimity of response is premised on the conviction that the individual named Jesus of Nazareth was an actual human incarnation of God who was crucified on the cross to save humanity from the dire consequences of sin, which is one of the fundamental doctrines of Christianity and the reason for Easter celebrations. But for a sceptic and nonreligious humanist like myself, Easter, Id el malud, Christmas, iri ji (or new yam festival) and other widely accepted faith-based practices offer a good opportunity for examining critically the core doctrines of religion. Without any scintilla of doubt, Nigerians love religion too much, especially Christianity and Islam.
