    can you give some examples?

    the bit of Islam I find most disgusting is where men who will enter heaven get 72 virgins to have sex with
    Aisha's marriage being consummated when she was 9;
    Slavery;
    Jihad;
    Misogyny.

    To make myself happy and those around me happy, especially those I love. By the way, let's not assume the universe owes us a purpose. :P

    How do you feel about you mother being upset? Has she talked to you? I understand that its your decision, some may respect it, but still they may have a hard time with it....

    What about the people that are burdened with illness and life thratening diseases, who are not happy at all with their life? Why should they suffer everyday only to turn into "an inanimate pile of bones and flesh and stuff"?

    I personally find it really hard to imagine raising a child and seeing them go against what I taught after years of raising of them. It makes me sort of sad and I feel upset for her as a result. She has talked to me and I tell her it is my choice .

    No, not really. I feel it is the best decision I made in my life. I guess I miss praying alone and being really calm, being with my thoughts and reflecting upon myself.

    Hmm those 4 are interesting reasons, mind elaborating on atleast the last 3...? The 1st one is because of modern attitude but previously girls got married at even younger ages.

    I lost faith in Allah a year ago. Feel free to ask mostly anything and i probably will answer all of them.
    If your family now knows you're an "Ex-Muslim" and you die anytime, then what are they planning to do read your Janazah and bury you or what? have you thought of that? what have you told them to do?

    What's your point?

    Nah, bro. I'm not bothered to argue or discuss right now. I spent hours upon hours debating this with my friends and such and I've gotten to the point where I just cannot discuss stuff about this without someone trying to argue which inevitably will happen in TSR. Not healthy for me. Sorry.

    How old are you?

    How do you get along with your parents (assuming that they're Muslim)?
    Are you going to answer my questions ^^^ or do you pass?

    What made you make this thread? I notice that that you're new. Bored? Frustrated about Islam? Needed to "come out" anonymously?
