I'm your average 16 year old teenage boy living in the UK.
i was born and raised Muslim by immigrant parents from the Indian sub-continent. I'm a student currently studying A-levels Bio, Chem, Phys & Maths. (MASSIVE SCIENCE NERD)
I've gotten to that point now in my life (16), where I'm always thinking about the future and how I should live my life. In my parents culture, religion practically governs every aspect of your life, so naturally I wanted to find out as much about it as I could, to see what I was getting myself into.
A naturally curious person, I researched countless things covering philosophy and science, the "big questions" so to speak. The more I researched, I found myself becoming more and more skeptical about my religion. I found myself disagreeing with a lot of verses in the Qur'an and Hadith. Some of them angering me, and leaving me in disgust. There comes a point when you've read so much bullshit, you've got to seriously think about things, and so I have decided to leave the faith of Islam. Thank God for the internet
I would now consider myself an Atheist. I wan't to believe in God. I mean who doesn't? I don't want it all to end after I die, living a meaningless life. But it's just a cold reality I am getting to grips with. Thus far, I haven't told anybody of my apostacy. I am the eldest sibling in my family and only son, telling my parents would absolutely shatter their lives. I would consider my family as moderate muslims, that are very good hearted in nature.
I wanna thank God for providing me with a curious, open mind, ergo giving me the opportunity to rid myself of the shackles of religion. I would not be an Atheist unless he willed
