How did Atheist Republic begin? What is the purpose of this community?
About the Author
I am employed as an IT tech. I was raised as a Muslim, and for the first 21 years of my life I was a very devout one. With age, came curiosity and my curiosity led me to questions that Islam, my religious teachers and my family simply couldn’t answer. Choosing to educate myself regarding the ways of the religious world, I struck out on my own to study not only my own religion but the other major religions of the world as well. Everything I learned, all of the history only seemed to support my growing disbelief of religion. Ever since turning 21 I’ve become a militant atheist, and have been disowned by my family as a result.
