    "Desit"?

    I do wish people would check their spelling before they post.

    I think it's so lower middle class to not check your spelling and grammar before posting.

    Ah, fair enough. (:

    And I don't know, perhaps it's the whole 'us and them' mentality in action.

    What made you leave Islam?

    So what do you, personally, believe? That there is a God, of some sort, but that worship and other religious practices are pointless?

    Don't generalise. Some parents are devastated if their kids leave a certain religion. However, over time they just accept u..

    Great to meet another fellow!

    I never was really in it by choice. As in, you are automatically born a muslim if your parents are so. So over time I decided to think about it rather than the " I am because I am' thought process.

    I then realised that there is no logical reasoning behind believing in a certain religion. Religion to me is just a matter of probability where you tend to believe in a certain religion because of your parents beliefs. Doesn't this kinda defeat the purpose of believing in something?
    What about you?

    Pretty much. For example, the complexity of the universe could mean the existence of a creator. I therefore believe in creator hence god.

    However, I can not apply same thought process to give reasoning behind the existence of a specific god like Allah.

    The same reasoning is what led me to question Islam more and more, that was when I realised it wasn't true.
    Religion is the 'parent lottery'. (In most cases, anyway)

    I used to be a deist as well.
