  • Nostalgia, nostalgia...
     OP - March 26, 2020, 04:06 PM

    Oh my god. How I miss this place.

    I remember defending Islam on this forums, giving fallacious arguments in favour of it (for e.g. the kalam cosmological argument; the fine-tuning argument; etc). I used to spin the physics, albeit unknowingly and out of my ignorance, for the support of a supernatural intelligence. I later felt as if Islam was untouchable, as I considered the Muslim responses to the arguments that I brought up, at the time, to be quite poor. But that was merely because of my religious biases stopping me from thinking critically. So because of that mindset that I held, everything that opposed Islam, I assumed by fiat to be false.

    But I am happy to come back on these forums as an atheist. I really missed this place. Glad to see that this place is still up and running. And hello to everyone.

    What finally pushed you into the unbeliever camp? Rational or emotional arguments?

    Rational arguments. I made a thread on only some of these arguments (there are many, many more). Check it out: https://www.councilofexmuslims.com/index.php?topic=31723.msg887431#msg887431

    Hi  parrot

    I haven't been here for a while. Unfortunately, this forum is rather dead now. People moved to other platforms as Reddit.
    But I'm actually positively surprised that made a turn. You were always the scary Muslim for me  w00t

    Haha ElToro, I remember you! Great to hear from you again. These forums were an amazing place for debates, ahh. I hope I wasn’t that scary when I was on here  Cheesy

    Everybody has moved on it seems. I go on exmuslim Reddit from time to time, but most people on there seem to be quite young, with objections that seem to not be that sophisticated. Perhaps I made a wrong conclusion from a small sample of posts that I saw, so I may go back and have another look.

    But more importantly take care of yourself!

    ^ Sounds about right

    Same for ex-Muslim Twitter

    Your right on them skewing younger im not exactly old myself since im in my early 20s but this forum seems to have had older people that hold wisdom. Seems like you had quite the journey yourself.
