Hi people,
I've just joined and have just started Dawkins' classic The God Delusion. Nothing too frightening so far in it for the religimous folk. I cannot think many commited theists will be converted - hearst wide open, eyes wide shut.
So sad that people cannot just find mere existence a wonder, the privilege of being aware of the universe, its immensity and richness. So sad to be tied down to a parochial god who is oh so intersted in little me on this tiny speck in space. S/he sure must be a god-and-half to be fussed about little me with so vast a universe/so many universes.
My personal view is that 'i' am part of the flow of the universe and that my consciousness givesw me the privilege of being concscious of the whole shebang, even if it is for a tiny period of time. My experience of being is unique as is everyone elses and thus precious. When I am gone 'my' universe (my experience of it) will be gone and whatever I have been composed of will blend back in to the being of the universe.
Atheist spirituality?

@stephenb - My cousin's strong suit is writing (which is actually one of my weaker points) and I think he tries to use words (such as "ickle") to throw me off. It doesn't really work though. I've only ever heard the word used by british people.

Today, during a heated religious debate on facebook, my cousin said "...and Richard Dawkins acts like an ickle toddler with daddy issues...".
I didn't even bring up Richard Dawkins! I actually laughed out loud.

What is wrong with listening for meaning, even if their meaning does not fit with my meaning? Then! Express my opinion, honestly, clearly, precisely, concretely without defense or apology! I don't need to judge, blame, accuse, or belittle. I can speak my truth, listen to their truth and express appreciation for sharing.

Seriously Rick, I could stare at that for hours. :)

When a young theist asks how an atheist can decide between right and wrong when the atheist has no absolute morality, Dawkins doesn't talk about utility or other justifications, he just turns the argument around on the theist. It's a thing of beauty to see (more, including video)

You will probably need to work a lot, save $$$ and try to find connection and opportunities to travel abroad. , and keep silent of your status to survive until your chance arrives. I can guess you are still young, so there is a lot for you to do.
Don't try to go against the tide ,just flow with it, and observe your surroundings for a breach to break through. First you should try to move away from "hot areas". just keep your cool, and observe , you are already on the other side if you can put your brain away from the "mind control". Ahh, and don't dream of a country with 'freedom"... Unless you live isolated on a mountain, there will always be a jerk ( or many ) around to remind you the religion is still present.

my name is Mohammad ,from Iraq ,muslim,but I hate Islam,prophet Mohammad and Quran.
I want to leave my religion forever and be without any religion.
All religions are the stories and legends created by people to achieve their personal interests and control the minds of human .
I do not believe that "god is exist.
I do not want any one or religion control on me.
I want to be free in my life.
I am looking for freedom and paces in this universe
my dear friend? I'm suffering a lot in my community.
You know if any one wanted to change his religion or be without any religion, they will kill him.
So I hope to help me.
