America as a source of good for the world??

Started this discussion. Last reply by Heather Spoonheim Jan 8, 2012. 3 Replies

I know that most atheists tend to be liberals and most liberals who tend to be to the extreme left tend to view U.S. foreign policy as a source of malevolence rather than benevolence in the world.…Continue

The religion you left
Was never a part of one
Why you left your religion.
I was always a rationalist as I questioned the existence of god since my pre-teens and even before then, I used to always ask my father questions of "how did" or "what" such as "where did the stars come from" and "how far are they" when I would look up at the night sky - and when I was 15, I was I think 90-95% atheist but I would hold in the back of my mind "the 5-10% that god might exist" - I think the reason for this was due to the fact that I feared death and I did not want to lose my parents and my own life one day as I would be "nothing". But when I was 16 I visited Iran for a significant period of time (I am Iranian) and I stayed there for 1.5-2 months. Being in Iran at that age was unlike anything that I had ever experienced before - I had a chance to taste the true nature of religious rule and religious oppression. Everywhere in the streets would be the images of these fanatical Mullahs and the people did not support it but feared to say a word due to the religious theocracy and fear instilled by the regime in which people were tortured and executed for speaking out. I remember I was at my grandmother's house one night and it was the call to prayer - and you can hear this on the loud speakers glared from the mosque - and I remember vividly looking up lying in the bed while resting and said to myself "this is all bullshit - there is not even the slightest chance of god existing - religion from its very foundation has been to control societies and instill fear upon the masses" and from that moment on (although before then I was pretty much an atheist) I knew that the slightest chance could not exist for a higher power and that it was all bullshit and that it was selfish of me to hold the slightest chance due to my fear of death. That is my short bio on my atheism..

'The pop singer tweeted a photo of theoretical physicist Lawrence Krauss, along with the word “beautiful.” On the photo is one of his quotes that reads, “You are all stardust. You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded, because the elements (carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, all things that matter for evolution) weren’t created at the beginning of time. They were created in stars. So forget Jesus. Stars…

Oh- and I was born in the US, my parents moved to the US a few years before I was born and we've been here ever since. What about you?

At 11:03pm on September 29, 2011, Sharayu said…

Thanks dude :) I'm not sure that my name has a "meaning" but I do know that it is the name of a holy river in northern India where a mythological God was born. Given the religious connotation of my name, I guess it's rather ironic that I'm on an atheist forum... :)

Do you have any idea why your parents named you Sassan?

At 8:49pm on September 29, 2011, Sharayu said…

Oh mannn, this is going to make me sound like such a geek! Actually my username is just my nickname which my friend gave me after the Pokemon Charzard: 
http://images.wikia.com/pokemon/images/7/7e/006Charizard.png

My actually name is Sharayu and my parents are Hindu. But you are absolutely correct about the name Shahrzad being Iranian/Persian, I remember it from the One Thousand and One Nights stories I read a few years ago.

What does your name mean Sassan?

Nope, my parents are from India.

I'm assuming you're Iranian based on your "About Me" section. That seems like your trip to Iran was a life changing trip. Cool story.

I've DLed it, but currently don't have enough time to start watching it. Especially since Top Gear and True Blood has started back up ;)

Found it on TPB, tnx for the tip. :)

Can't say I have, but I'm going to see if i can't d/l it. :) I'm generally not a fan of US "clandestine" shows like 24 and the ilk, they are a bit unrealistic..

You should check out the BBC shows "Spooks" and the Swedish author Jan Guillou's series if you like realism.

I am thrilled by Alabama's recent legislation on illegals. Although making it illegal to pick up a hitchhiking illegal was a bit over the top!   :^ )    -Ed
