“I am free to think the things I think, free to appreciate the world around me for what it is, free to live my life now and not worry about my life after I die. I no longer have to feel guilty for my doubts, and that is a wonderful thing.”- The Secret Atheist
I no longer have to abide by cult logic, lazy reasoning, or zombie religiosity. I can whole heatedly say that I am free from the mental oppression of religiosity. I no longer have to be afraid of my own thoughts for fear it might produce doubts. I no longer have to fear education and learning for the sake that I might learn something that conflicts with my religion or faith. I can now explore the realms of science, philosophy, epistemology, history, and world religions. Cause I no longer have my religion telling me it is wrong, or its the devil. I can now dive deep into the topics of Islam and the Quran, buddhism, Darwin and evolution, quantum mechanics, the big bang and the cosmological universe. I am now free to learn and educate myself, cause I no longer have to worry about learning something contradictory to my religion and faith. No longer is being open-minded a negative thing.
I can now explore books that expand my mind. I can now explore movies that I would have previously shunned. I can now explore conversations with people who are different from me. And maintain friendships with people who have different beliefs. I am now free from the mental oppression and the bondage of
