This is Sourabh and I am an Atheist
Hi, I am Sorabh from India and this is my story
I was born in a high
caste Hindu family. My parents told me that I was a Brahmin, something that is
considered very important in Hinduism. If you are a Brahmin, you are closer to
God than anyone else. Even when I was a child, elder people from lower castes
in my village would bow down to me. I could never understand this. I could have
very easily become another orthodox religious fundamentalist in my village but
I was lucky. I was lucky because my father is a Medical Doctor and I was taught
science from my very beginning. I studied in the best school in my city. Apart
from this, My Dad had a huge library in our home. I was a nerd from my
childhood. My favourite time pass was and still is reading. I read philosophy,
theology, science, history...a lot in my spare time.

Knowledge guided me
to understand that religion is nothing but a fabrication of human mind. Knowledge
taught me that everyone has as much rights in this world as I have. Knowledge
opened my eyes. Books made me a deist from a theist. I was still looking for
answers.

Then, in 2005, I
joined various social networking sites. Here I met many wonderful people. I
discussed with atheists around the world and came to understand their point of
view. I understood how religion poisons everything and why it is not just
necessary but also our duty to stand against religious dogmas and
superstitions. Today, I am a proud atheist. Thanks to the numerous books I have
read and the people I have met in my journey for truth.

This year, I and some
of my atheist friends started a website called “Rational Avenue”. We want to
promote rationalism, scepticism and science in the world. This world is a
beautiful place and this life is the only one we have got. I want to make it big;
I want to make it meaningful.

Welcome, I like your optimism. Thumbsup

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
