"My experience in a coven was about the same. It was just a dysfunctional cult-like clique full of people who hated each other but convinced themselves they loved each other."

"My mind always questioned, but it was Tolestoy's Novel "Ressuraction" which provided the final push. I am still unable to understand after all those 17 years that what it was in the book which brought such a big change."

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.

Hi Bradley, and welcome to this friendly meeting place where we recognise, like you do as an atheist, that gods are all phoney and religions are cunning frauds used to control people;
and how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and more.

Terry Meaden
founder of the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 260 discussion topics. We invite you to join us.
