heyyy..... i belong to a certain religion by birth but am fed up of its patriachal traditions
and prejudice against women and all in the name of god....
i cant say am an atheist or wanna be but i'd like to belong one such religion
which has a value system that doesnt demean women. a religion which doesnt
segregate humans on the basis of caste or gender.
i stumbled upon this amazing forum.
am expecting to have some candid and rational and reformist discussions with the members of this forum...
All religions have biases toward one group of people or more, if not then they wouldn't be a religion for, in my opinion, that is what religion is: this is the way things are, we're right everyone else is wrong, and you'll only find enlightenment with what we believe.
Though there are a good many atheists who go by the same standards (I'm right, your wrong) atheism is not a religion. There are no books
, no laws, no nothing. We are free to be who we are as individuals, free to voice our concerns on the world without a hierarchy that tells us our moral obligations, or what they deem to be immoral.
Whether a deity exists or not is irrelevant, if not then we see life as we choose, if so then one must falter from such inclination and live up to the idealism and philosophy of such a being, and never truly being free unless in rebellion of such a being.
Religion and deities can't provide such things since, it's their truth or no truth.
