    Do you have faith?

    What is it you are questioning? Your belief in God, what you see being done in its name, organised religion, attracted to something else? Or just having doubts?

    ive passed the stage of doubt, im looking for anything to prove to me that im making a mistake in leaving my religion. i guess, from an early age ive just though of religion as one big fairy tale, something people have made and changed to put their unanswered questions at bay, something to give this life purpose and meaning. At first it was just me finding the stories of the Quran hard to comprehend, a man getting swallowed by a Whale, the sea splitting in two or a massive ark in 2015, i mean we have i phone 6+ and **** man! but no its become a question of is religion actually good? i mean it doesnt really promote critical thinking, or art, fashion, science etc and it is actually quite judgmental and sexist. i want to keep this as brief as possible but im happy to elaborate much more if you want me to, it'll be long though.

    I don't believe in a God

    It's sweet to think that there is someone up there looking over you but it's not true

    Wow whats got you??? I just wanted to make sure what it was you were asking?? There is absolutely no reason to be so rude. Speaking as someone who was born a Muslim but no longer is one I understand where you're coming from...if you want people to get involved I would tone down ur attitude..

    in my humble opinion, either someone takes religious texts metaphorically, or they make absolutely no sense

    if you take texts metaphorically, even the strangest narrations (such as Jonah, Noah, Adam and Eve etc) can be constructed to make some kind of moral sense

    however, it is a huge effort, and most people will disagree on what exactly the metaphorical sense is
