  • Why Many Muslims haven't Left Islam
     OP - April 01, 2017, 12:35 AM

    This is a truly great article. My reason is number 24.

    Hell is an absurd & wicked fiction. You're not a bad person for rejecting something that's cruel, irrational, unjust & lacks evidence. You have nothing to fear. Nothing to feel ashamed about. Enjoy your life. Do the best you can. Make yourself & others happy.

    If it wasn't for not wanting my mom to find out (Can't have her getting a heart attack), I wouldn't bother pretending to be Muslim anymore around people who expect me to still be one.

    Also have you explored other faiths and/or spiritual beliefs Hassan? I get the impression some of those people included in 24 think it's either Islam or nothing, sort of like Pascal's wager between the Jansenism movement within Catholicism and irreligious atheism.

    Then you have the wine that doesn't make you drunk. Seriously, who's idea was that? It's called Juicy Juice where I come from, mofo, you ain't fooling me.

    A friend took me to her church on several occasions and of course I'm aware of Christian beliefs and read the Bible (OT & NT) - but it just doesn't appeal to me - though I respect it. I also respect Hinduism - but again it just doesn't appeal to me. Also been to a Unitarian church and Quaker meetings.

    My view is that all religions are man-made myths. I'm comfortable within the one I was brought up with. I have absolutely no incentive to move to another man-made myth where I don't have the same sense of comfort and familiarity.
