RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
My name is Magd, I'm 32 y/o, I'm from Yemen, used to be a muslim, but i'm not anymore for the last 15 years i think Undecided

It's really a good thing that I see here people say that they're open about this, which is impossible where I come from, as islam rules here, if anyone converts from islam to any other belief gets executed (not joking, it's one of the main islam rules), therefore, only a couple of my close friends know about me being an atheist.

People here are forced to believe in islam, you're not allowed to think or ask questions... I think you guys can imagine the rest...

Hello Magd,
It's great to know you have made it here and can be free to share whatever thoughts you can. Anywhere but here, make sure you keep your non-theist ideas quiet; please, please be safe.
I don't know too much, but there are many people here, and together we all know a lot -and we're glad to have your contributions.

Welcome to the forum. Smile

I've joined because this forum seems interesting. Not because I'm an anti-theist, and want to bash on some religion - that shit's gotten boring. I'm here because I want to join a nice laidback web community and having a better understanding on the issues and events concerning *you know what*.
Films, music, events, politics and, if possible, a discussion with random theists.

Looking forward to this!

Welcome, Haris, but you've come to the wrong place - it's a madhouse here.Big Grin

What? Huh
Sorry, I claim current, resident retard... gotta have it spelt fer me t'day; "issues and events concerning..." what ... religion? ... non-theism? ... the giant vegi-burrito I had for lunch?
So... are you an anti-theist? I'm kind of into Ignostic apatheism at the moment... meaning; if there is a god, it's irrelevant and I don't give a shit.
Yep, you will probably run into a few theists here and there ... some totally ok. Others... I think Ego r is still running around with his idiot ax... and the simpleton AbdelZ; sad people... might be best not to feed them. Undecided

Don't worry KingChosen. I've understood your a Theist and although I am an Atheist, I do see some good in religion and can help you argue some points if you need any help. I am a humanist and I do support things that benefit mankind.

It has been a long time. How have you been?

Hello, I'm Trapped Pentecostal!

Yes, I'm the same Trapped Pentecostal who wrote the letter that Seth shared on his show "Help! I'm A Closet Atheist" that aired tonight.

I fell away from the Christian faith a couple of years ago, and now I'm wondering how I'll ever be able to tell my wife and her family (all of whom are devout Christians) that I don't believe in God anymore.

About me: I've worked most of my career as a graphic designer, I now currently manage a small art department, and I've always had a keen interest in science (especially astronomy).

Hey Trapped Pentecostal, welcome to the forum.

There are a few members who are, and have been in a similar situation to yourself.
Hopefully you will find what you are looking for.

Behold the power of the force!

RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
Hello, my name is Douglas. I'm an 18 year old kid from Pennsylvania, whose been an atheist for the past three years (roughly, my relationship with religion was. . . complicated prior to that). I am blessed, in a way, that I can be very open about my atheism in public without too much stress stemming from it. I haven't suffered any discrimination, that I know about, and no-one has been overly insulting, to my face. All the same, I think that it would be nice to have intellegent conversations with a few like-minded individuals, not just my usual humorous fundamentalist bashing that I get up to with my my friends (a deist and a moderate)--and there are oh so many fundamentalists around me, I never realised just how deep the ignorance is rooted until I started asking questions about it. I'd always taken my acceptance of science for granted, so I thought it was downright hilarious when I first heard about young earth creationism. . . and then I was flabbergasted when I learned that many of my friends believed in it. Imagine that awkward moment when you make a joke about people believing that humans and dinosaurs coexisted, only to have the response be: "But they did."

Well, I suppose that that is the end of it, for the time being. I'm glad to be here and I hope to participate extensively in this community for the years to come.
