Why are you here?
I am an atheist since the age of 14 and i believe we are human beings and citizens of earth first, but since our ancestors decided to create borders and religions, we are divided now and there is too much hate. So, i think here i can find intelligent people who know how not to act like a moron as the rest of my species.
The religion you left
Why you left your religion.
I was 14 when i went to the hindu temple for the last time with my dad. I asked the priest if god created us then who was his creator, as somehow he is always supposed to be a male. The preist cursed me and kicked me out. After that i started exploring science and gaining knowledge until i came to the conclusion that god is a man made myth. I respect buddha though as a person since for us indian atheists he is the first known indian atheist, but the chinese changed the story and made him another man of god.
Think Atheist Travel Network Couch Availability - Are you able to host anyone now?
Welcome! I can't believe you got kicked out of the temple. I wish I had been a fly on the wall to see that. Thanks for sharing about Buddha being seen as an atheist...I'm pleased to hear another perspective on Buddha. I hope you enjoy Think Atheist.
