Hello from Iceland
Hello everyone, Jóhann is my name Dodgy

[Image: vikings_of_iceland_nordic_scandanavian_p...ja_400.jpg]

I wonder if I am the only Icelandic person on this forum, probably some Icelandic people lurking around Tongue

I am going on twenty, been an atheist since I was about 13 I guess.
But have been very free thinking all my life.
Came from a family that never talked of religion, only ever went to church for funerals and ceremonies..

At the age of 13-14 in Iceland we go through a thing like jewish kids go through, "ferming" its called. So it's basically a declaration that you as an individual believe in god and the dogma that follows.

At that time I started seriously thinking about the big question's about god and such, and came to the conclusion that god was pretty much a pervert Wink Which happened when the priest during a lecture said: "God is watching you always, even in the bedroom." Big Grin

The funny thing about Icelandic people concerning religion is that the pole says around 60% are believers and even more are registered as Christians.
Almost 90% I would say, don't care either way, Religion is worthless in people's lives. The #1 comment people say when asked "What is god?" they say "Love". Care to clarify, nah won't be bothered. Huh

Anyway this was just a shout out. Great to find a free thinking website Wink

You mean 'confirmation'?

Pretty much the same in Finland.

Correct me when I'm wrong.
Accept me or go to hell.

Yes, confirmation of faith I suppose it would be more accurate to call it Smile
But more or less every individual that does this is doing it for greed and nothing else. I got over 250.000 isk (US$2000+) when I did this, from family and friends. Some get even more than this. It looks more like a jewish ritual Wink no pun intended.

My God! $2000+? I did it for less than 300€! I feel like a cheap prostitute now.
