Egyptian expat in NYC for 23 years, I have a cat, an observant family who I challenge about religion for fun. I practice Zen Meditation counting my breath (concentration meditation)I can teach you that. I love the Simpson's, Family Guy, MTV and VH1 Classic. I studied and continue to study dj'ing, brokerage of all financial instruments, would give you advice or chat with you about Technical Analysis of the financial markets. I'm an affiliate of the Market technician Association. I worked as an artist drawing drawings that Donald Baechler has used as the basis for his paintings. Should I come out as an Atheist or Soto Zen Buddhist? I risk capital punishment or jail at least for speaking out or being an apostate?
Why are you here?
To network and make friends, birds of a feather flock together.
The religion you left
Why you left your religion.
Too lazy to do the rituals. Started questioning it. All you have to do is to ask what I (donno about you) consider impartial: Wikipedia for the articles about criticism of the Koran, Muhammed, Islam and other religions. But basically because Allah is too demanding: fast 30 days straight with a bunch of restrictions on sex, thoughts and so on. Then pray five times a day doing uncomprehensible rituals like putting my head on the ground facing Mecca ( it was towards Jeruslam before that why the change?)! Also you have to perform washing rituals and bathing rituals, which have restrictions on bodily functions like somthing coming out of your holes. AAAAHHHHHH just too many rules. Basically rebellion. Mom wishes but I doubt that I'll observe again.
