Its-a Me! Wenlok!

#1  Postby Wenlok » Apr 12, 2018 2:57 am

Hey, whats good yall?

Well, where do i begin?

I guess some of the mods already know this, but I registered a few months ago, but i wasn’t allowed to login due some forum error. But i am glad i am finally here, and someday participate in the discussion.

So about me, im an ex muslim still in highschool. I sepnt about 2 years studying and struggling with the islamic texts, and with the magic of cognitive dissonance, i was able, although without sacrificing my mental and physical health, to both believe in the absolute infallible religion and the errors presented to me. Anyway, this summer i went to Dubai(My parents noticed my depression and thought i needed to leave the country) for vacation. Ironically, although every antiislamic site was banned, I finally did my research on Ahteism on Youtube, and decided to leave islam, in a Muslim Country! Ha, I remember before i left to go to the UAE saying their was no wai id ever leave islam.

Anyway, I started watching videos and reading comments, and i did more research and this forum was a gold mine! You are all amazing people! I have dozens and dozens of saved pages of this site in my bookmarks.

And i guess i hit all the checkmarks random people online need to know about me, so uhhhh, night?

Cheers!

(P.S. And no, my family doesnt know and i will keep it that way)

Hi Wenlock, welcome.

Quick question - how did you wrap your head around such Koranic things as the sun setting in a muddy pool and fresh water not mixing with salt water?

Welcome. Keep a low profile and keep safe.
Social media has its spies everywhere. The recent Facebook fiasco just shows what can go on without you being aware.
I have NO BELIEF in the existence of a God or gods. I do not have to offer evidence nor do I have to determine absence of evidence because I do not ASSERT that a God does or does not or gods do or do not exist.

The former was just pathetic. The quran is in clear language right? And hidden meanings are only found in woth those with “perverted” hearts. So muslims trying to claim its not what it says but that Dhul Qarnain is just seeing a reflection of the sun in mearly water, is just denail of the clear quran, which apparently needs human interpretation to make it clear. And they gnore Muhammad who in Sunan Abu Dawaud 3991 says also the suns sets in a pool of water.

Another thing is, does it set in a pool, or does it go under the throne of Allah? Contradictions galore.

The latter i dont mess with since its basic facts, and Muhammad used to be a merchant with is wife so they traveled or could have heard.


Surah 18:65-68 talk about Moses and his Prophet/Not Prophet friend. They killed a kid, because it was mercy to the parents since supposedly the kid would turn out bad. Now, his brings up a multitude of moral questions. Can i kill a child if i think he shall turn out bad? What is considered bad in this case?

Thanks for all the support and welcomes. Ill jist be lurking and maybe asking some questions here and there.

Cheers
Wenlok

You appear to me to be courageous Wenlock. Hopefully you will inspire some of those around us to adopt a similar disposition.
Once one accepts one has to have an imperfect life, one need no longer strive to be the best/have the best/own the world.
