RE: Hello everone
Welcome. You write very well. I would never suspect English was your third language. Again, welcome.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

As a man who knew apostates I know that it is certainly complicate for you therefore I say you that you have my emotional , thinking and intellectual support.

I have some questions :
1.Can you tell us in which European country are you ?
2.Was you a Sunni , Shi'a or other denomination ?
3.Can you tell us how you became Atheist ?

Hi,
I'm a bit older than you : 51 !
I live in France, I'm nearly bilingual arabic/french although arabic is my mother tongue. I grew until the age of 18 in Morocco. So, I leaved the Sunni branch.

As I said, I traced my first doubt to the age of 7. The story is quite funny.
An old teacher told me that one of the Qoran verses, namely 'Ayat al Kursy' (The Throne Verse) is very protective. I really believed it and when I got as a gift a small book with this verse printed, I decided to check/prove it works. I asked some kids to stone me while I was standing few meters apart and told them I won't be hurt since I will be holding Ayat Al Kursi with me (I love mathematics since childhood, and to me, every claim must be proved !) and of course, god was busy that day and no miracle happened (although the kids were kind enough not to aim my head !).

My parents are very relegious, and the whole moroccan society is very religious, but I don't remember having been a real believer. As everybody then, I went to the mosq on fridays and observed ramadan (I drinked water in secret !) But it was a matter of "social hypocrisy".

Happy to see you use your common sense and intelligence to think free and rational. From one former Muslim to another, welcome once more, and if you have any questions jump right in. You'll find your self home here.

RE: Hello everone
Glad you are here and also out there. It gives me great comfort to know there are people out there who have forsaken the crazy, and all the more reason not to judge by appearances.
