Background info: I'm a female, 17 years old. I live in a highly populated asian/muslim area and my parents and family are quite religious too.. yet I became an atheist 2 years ago. Ask away

Oh and my username is japanese because I've been fascinated with japanese culture since I was 12.

I got the idea of this from another thread I saw here (I'm a bengali ask me anything)

1. What made you leave islam?
When I realised there was no heaven and hell after my granddad passed away and he was in fact just going to be rotting in the ground decomposing for the rest of time. I began questioning whether the rest of what I was taught to believe was fake too. Researching online about atheism contributed the most because it taught me the logical side of things. Also studying Psychology at my sixth form helped me to form my opinions on islam too.

2. Do your parents know about you being an atheist and if so what are their opinions?
Nope, I don't think I will ever tell them. I know that my relationship will them and the family will get ruined. So I've decided to keep it secret for now. In the future, things may change so I can't say if I will tell them or not.

3. Are you craving the Dang?
Sorry what do you mean by "dang"?

I'm from West Bengal tho and my family is Hindu. I like Japan mainly because of Anime and Manga....and J-pop, however, I find Japanese culture and language fascinating. Why do you like Japan so much??

Omg are you me? haha Well I grew up watching anime and slowly just started to like the culture. Though Im not too obsessed with it now. I like kpop more now. I have a big interest in travelling now. If only I had the money to go travelling.. I guess unique and new experiences is what fascinates me.

Hey dude!
Same here, but I'm agnostic.
What's your opinion on quantum mechanics?
Do your parents know that you're atheist? If so, how did they react?
Favourite KPOP group? Mine is EXO K

I can't get my head around quantum mechanics.

I already answered your next question:
2. Do your parents know about you being an atheist and if so what are their opinions?
Nope, I don't think I will ever tell them. I know that my relationship will them and the family will get ruined. So I've decided to keep it secret for now. In the future, things may change so I can't say if I will tell them or not.

I have a lot of favourite kpop groups, here are some: nine muses, bangtan, bap

Why are you agnostic?

So you have stopped observing eid, ramadan, no longer wear arab clothes and eat pork?
If the answer is no to any of these then you are just fooling.

I still celebrate eid with my family because no one in my family knows I'm an atheist. For me it's always been more of a family gathering rather than a religious event. I pretend to fast during ramadan in front of my parents because I see no point in starving myself when I'm already underweight and have been to doctors for it. I never wore arab clothes out but I do wear indian clothes at family events/weddings. I have had bacon before and I don't really intend on avoiding in the future.
