I'm of the Lucky Ones - those born at the cusp of the digital age where we were children of the 80s who played outside and performed other "analog" activities, but who also grew up with the internet, vintage gaming, coding, and the birth of mobile tech.
I decided to celebrate my 35th like a proper 80s child - by building a blanket fort and playing board games inside with my fiance. She also gifted me my favorite Fisher Price Little People from the Sesame Street playset - Grover and…Continue

Greetings old friends! I've returned to TA for my birthday as I do every summer around this time to scope out the scene and give the forum another go. It's been one hell of a year so let me bring you up to speed!
First off, I am now, against all logic and reason, a certified and bonified homeowner. Somehow I convinced a banking institution that it was a good idea to sell me - an anti-authoritarian, anti-consumerist, anti-capitalist, kopimist, copyleftist, anti-theist,…Continue

From my knowledge to write the word "rights" about Islam is the insult of this word. Islamic history proves that Islam doesn't allow any woman to work . They are considered a machine who obeys her husband cooks food at home take cares of her husband & children. She can't drive . She can't work in a office with other males. Mostly by muslim scholars we are given the example that the prophet first wife (Khadijah) was a trader & prophet worked for her before marriage but after that…Continue
Today I am discussing an issue about the Koran. As you guys know the Koran is a book which is written by Muhammad & Muslims consider it God's book. Koran discusses the issues of Muhammad's era and this book is in Arabic. Muhammad native language was Arabic.
For example, I am an Urdu reader if i get all the commands on English I can't get the right understandings about Shakespeare because that is not my native language. If I translate his any poem in Urdu that will lose all its…Continue

I'm an atheist. There's no God. Needless to say, there's no afterlife. I'm going to make some assumptions about agnosticism and theism.
If God exists, then afterlife exists. If God…Continue
Laying in bed staring into a black abyss of darkness. I think to myself what's the point? We're born, we live, we die. Why? What's the point? Is there a god? If there was why would he do this and why would god be male if gender supposedly doesn't matter?
What's the point? We laugh, we smile, we do things we love.. but…Continue
Today i am studying a book (Understanding Muhammad) which is written by Ali Sina . Ali Sina is an Iranian Canadian activist and strong critic of Islam who describes himself as an ex-Muslim. Founder of Faith Freedom International, which he describes as a grassroots movement of ex-Muslims.
Everybody has armor. Imagine for a second. The girl sitting next to you wears a chest armor surrounded in chains to protect her heart. The boy next to you wears a mouth guard to protect others from his innocent opinions that are considered evil. Thay both have armor. We all do. Some even have swords in their backs. I have a quote I just love.…Continue

I went through my life with an amazing Christian nana. I went to church and I would stand there. I would sing even though I can't, and I would pray with all my heart for everybody. But it felt like I was only there to go to heaven like I was…Continue
Actually the god in all the Abrahamic religions is described perfectly as an emperor due the great empires is this period 2000 BCE till 620 CE (the egyptian empire , the Mesopotamian empires , the persian empire , the Greek empire and the roman empire ). Before that there was many gods described as an normal kings for a group of people like in Greek , Egyptian, Mesopotamian and Roman mythology.
Between these gods there were wars just as the wars which happened in the Greek islands…Continue

Ethics can be defined as the rules or regulations established by the society or the government in order to achieve peace and overcome problems as much as possible. That's how I define ethics personally. I always thought that if the ethics established did not achieve such objectives, then these are not ethics in the first place..Only a bunch of stupid blind rules.
Every country on this planet has it's own ethical standards due to the fact that every country has it's customs and…Continue
Found this very interesting article on nano-magnets
I dealt with different people with different points of views and different ideologies. When it comes to the atheists..They are exceptionally smart! I thought about the reason for so long..Until i found my own answer. As an atheist myself.. I am not considered a smart guy at all Lol but being an atheist is not an easy thing. Most of us ended up being atheists after reading about different religions and comparing these religions with other religions. As well as comparing all these…Continue
The word “goodbye” has many aliases, from “so long” to “see ya later alligator”. The first time I heard the phrase “Godspeed”, I wondered if it was faster than a flash or two shakes of a lamb's tail...or was it three shakes, can't remember.…Continue
There has been a very long war between science and religion over the past centuries. This war has split the world in to 2 halves,people who believed that science is more legit while others believed otherwise..This is absolutely normal for me...everyone should think of whatever they want to think of..we are all different and we all have a specific way of thinking...But the thing is...Is it normal to have contradicted ways of thinking?? Let me give you all an example,in one of the…Continue
