Indonesian atheist
Hi everyone.

As you can see on the subject i live in Indonesia, also born and raised in Indonesia.
Some of you may know or doesn't know that Indonesia only recognize 6 religion Buddhism, Islam, Christianity(Protestant and Catholic count as different), Confucianism, and Hinduism.
So to be having no religion is an actual crime here. Also there is been some cases when atheist that speak their mind either online (facebook) or in real life have been subject to a beating by their neighbours.

That is why i'm here, so i can have a discussion to a like minded without being discriminated.

Also my introduction are also meant to be so that you guys can understand when there is something wrong with the grammar of the English im using.

So that is it guys. Looking forward to the oncoming discussion.

Hi there, neighbour.

Yes, the beating incident was discussed here and also the case of Alexander Aan.

Maybe, when you've settled in, we can discuss more about what's happening there currently.

Welcome aboard.

RE: Indonesian atheist
Hi there.

Indonesia had some kick-ass music back in the 60s and 70s. That's about all I know about the place.

Wait! Didn't they just have an election? How's that going? Both candidates look pretty mediocre, but at least Jokowi didn't gun down protestors back in the day...

... this is my signature!

Welcome to the forum Linolear! Would you like to tell us something about yourself? What were you raised as? How did you become an atheist? Do your friends and family know?

I remain skeptical, no one man could ever change a country that is so corrupt.
Until intellegence and basic sense of morality became a requirement to became a representative in the council. Indonesia will remain underdeveloped country even though the country have a lot of potential of natural resources.

To be fair, most developed countries are also run by corrupt idiots...

Don't mix atheism with religion. They are completely separate things.

There are Buddhists who do not believe in god.

In any event, if you no longer believe in a god, and need to camouflage yourself against theistic idiots, then that is an alternative.

Welcome and enjoy the discussions
