"um... Hi. I'm new here, I just discovered this site in its entirety. right to the point: I've been an ex-muslim for a few years and I'm tired of having friends I'm fake with. And my search led me here. It's pretty cool…"
Ex-muslim. Love hanging out with people I can be completely transparent with.
I usually like to make light of most things and not take anything seriously, because while I know some things are very serious, I think comedy and irony should never be ignored.
Ultimately, I'm a peace loving creature. I hate confrontations and violence. But don't get it twisted, I'll staunchly and unwaveringly stand by what or who I think is right... Unless it makes more strategic sense to just let things go... kind of like every religious-related thing ever.
I like various sorts of music, mainly pre-2000 rock music, but I don't particularly hate modern music, as long as they have integrity; From guns' n roses to pink floyd, from Lights out asia, and Mumford and sons to Disturbed and In flames, they all scratch different itches from the moods I'm in.
I love playing all sorts of videogames and aspire to become a 3D character designer.
Why are you here?
I'm tired of pretending to be someone I'm not to befriend people I don't like just to escape the insanity of loneliness. I'm tired of friends openly mocking and insulting atheists and agnostics, and me just going along with it to keep my cover. I'm tired of having to pray with the group I'm with to avoid questions. I'm tired of having people intrusively step into my life to judgmentally tell me what to think, what to want, and what to do.
The religion you left
Why you left your religion.
I was immediately raised into Islam, I wasn't given a choice. But all was fine and dandy until the experiences and logistics I observed in life wouldn't fit into the belief system I was brought up with. I could only shrug off so many thoughts and questions that were ultimately dodged and unanswered by my religious peers before the cognitive dissonance became too much to handle. Religion versus reason; belief system versus experiences and observations; the board and the puzzle pieces. One of them had to be faulty. After much thought, I decided the religion had to go.
