Hi,i consider myself lucky to have found this group, and i'm glad i did so cheers i'm kind of new to this and still on an early stage as i'd like to think but i have a simple question (which could prove not be that simple) what about the future ? how should i live here like this ? am i supposed to live under a mask of Christianity ?or is leaving this country an option ?thanks ^_^
Aug 30, 2012
Fadi.. welcome to TA first of all and nice to have you here.. well it will take sometime struggling with "the future" and "what the fuck is wrong with these ppl" questions but you will eventually reach a solution that is suitable for you.. Leaving the country is always an option..:) it does help to find like minded ppl to hangout with as we got to discover over here, so you are most welcome to join anytime dude
Sep 3, 2012
thanks Mohamed for responding :)unfortunately i live no where near Cairo, and i'm pretty sure that like-minded people are a rare species over here .i don't know what to believe anymore
what about you ? how did you choose to live with this ? other than holding meetings with other atheists and when i said leaving the country i meant (refuge based on me being an atheist) and not by normal means because otherwise i'm stuck here :(

The number of new openly atheist/agnostic people at my school is increasing at an unbelievable rate. I no longer know whats happening around me.
Have they all decided to come out at once, or are those new atheists? Or maybe I'm just paying too much attention these days.
Forgive my paranoid tone, but it's not exactly easy seeing this happening in a school dominated by e5wan and salaf :/

@Nabil - as I mentioned in an earlier comment, a lady advisor to UN regarding the Islamic push to make criticizing Islam an international crime (her name escapes me, but it's in my original comment, along with a link to her article), says:
"on account of the new openness available through satellite, internet and mobile phone technologies, disillusioned Muslims are rejecting and leaving Islam in unprecedented numbers."
@archaeopteryx : thats a great thing :D

@Nabil Tarek they are probably new atheists, i think its the best thing we got out of the revolution. People apparently started to think freely.
Actress Elham Shahin to sue TV sheikh over insults >> Link
Egyptian actress Elham Shahin is to file a case against Sheikh Abdallah Badr of conservative TV channel 'El-Hafez', who regularly criticises the actress, according to a report on Ahram Arabic news website.
Shahin says that she will be making claims related to the channel's programmes to the Attorney General. She decided to take the case to court after she was mentioned for the second time on the channel in a programme this week, which discussed whether religious scholars should put limits on artistic expression.
During the programme on Saturday, 1 September, one of the presenters said to the sheikh: "If you as a sheikh will discuss economics, then we should get Elham Shahin to discuss religion."
The programme presenter then apologised, adding: "We hope artist Elham Shahin will find God's guidance; who knows." The sheikh then reportedly said: "I hope God guides her, and we would take care of her."
Oct 15, 2012
what's really funny is that the Sheikh has fabricated photos of Elham Shahin Photoshopping her face over the body of a Romanian Porn Star
Oct 16, 2012
Ha! maybe he's a fan of that porn star! LOL!

we need more of this

That is SO cool, Marvel - any chance you could upload that to a Taliban website? That would REALLY freak them out!
@ Nabil Tarek Basiouni- they may not be at quite the Atheist stage, but free thinking, and sick of old men making violent and destructive rules - doth make renegades. Viva la Revolution!

ملحدين جامعة القاهرة aka Cairo University atheist .. i just stumbled upon this group today .. very interesting
Any active users in this website ? I'm interested to know a community that thinks the same way .
Oct 29, 2012
@MohamedAlgendy Well you found the right place to be, this is a community that thinks - which is enough - come on we are in Egypt
It seems the internet and this site, as well as many other of similar form and function are reaching thinking people everywhere. Welcome!
Some other like-minded folks in Wise County, Texas and yours truly have organized the Wise Free Thinkers and Skeptics MeetUp and all are invited to participate either from long distance or in person. See the MeetUp website to find us. Cheers all!
@Ken Huges - why don't you post a link to the "Meet Up" Website? When did Texas start allowing free thinkers? Do we need a Green Card? I wouldn't want to get shot by the Border Patrol --
Wise County - isn't that just west of the Muslim Cemetery on Hwy 280?
My pleasure and honor,
And yes, Wise County, an oxymoron for the most part, is west of the Modlem graveyard, which is east of the Jehova's Witness weirdness, so-called Kingdom Hall on 380, not 280. I live 5-miles east of Decatur out in the country where one can almost see one other home in the winter only and it's quiet and incredibly peaceful and home security is not an issue unlike Fort Lauderdale where we had bikes stolen off of our front and back porches at various times.
You're a little off, Ken - the Muslim Cemetery is west of the Jehovah's Witless church, not east.
I registered for your site, but it asked for my real name, and I never give that to anyone. We'll see if my request is accepted.
Meanwhile, you might enjoy checking out my website, www.in-His-own-image.com - some here read it regularly. It's intended to be read like a book, so it's best to open any page, scroll to the bottom, where you'll find a button marked, "FIRST" - clicking on that will take you to the beginning, after that, navigation is self-explanatory.
Who knows, you might find substance for one of your meetings - my daughter (bless her little pea-pickin' heart) hosts Bible Studies in her home every Sunday - the idea of an "Un-Bible" Study appeals to my perverse nature!
@Ken Even better, if anyone is passing by Cairo make sure to meet up with us. First round on me :)

Mohamed - I'll try to make it, should I bring chips and dip?
BTW, for any interested, the Avaaz website, containing the Malala petition to be presented to the Pakistani President upon completion of one million signatures, in an effort to pressure Zardani into providing safe schools for Pakistani girls, is temporarily down, thanks to Hurricane Sandy, but at last count, there were nearly 850,000 signatures. It should be back up shortly, hopefully today, as no one can sign until it is.
@archaeopteryx Thanks for the link of the Paki President.
Well for the chips and dip no need come and taste Sakanaky, Kobaba and Somosa :) cant be explained but tasted ;)
I've harbored a fantasy of visiting Egypt for most of my life that to this point has reached its 68th year, so it has been a while. I came close once, but no banana. I've read so much about Egypt from ancient history to modern times that I need to put some actual experience on my fantasy.
