Izzati: Islam actually gives me a sense of liberation and a feeling of inner peace. Deal with it.

27 Jun 09, 09:21bibit: the more I read your blog, the more i find it absurd. you're talking as if you studied Sociology and
Bibit, I think you simplified things just a tad too much.
If you did read my blog, you'd know I've been doubting religion and God ever since I was about seven years old, and especially in my days in the Agama school where I could not take in what I thought and still think is bullshit coming out of my teachers' mouths.
And Izzati, asking me to 'deal with it' is kind of hypocritical of you. I think you're the one having a problem with dealing with the fact that I'm criticising your religion and that I cannot find the same feeling of 'inner peace' you tried to convince me you felt. Ever since I found my mind free of religious constraints, I feel more spiritual than I had ever been. And yes, spirituality is a separate thing from religion.
"What is your purpose in life? Why do you think you are here?"
This is why I feel liberated. I don't feel burdened by the thought of my life devoted to a 'Supreme Being' that I've never seen or felt. I didn't choose to not believe. It was not a rebellion borne out of a desire to be different. It was just a state of mind shaped by years and years of personal thoughts and moments.
I've addressed this point in detail by the way, in a previous post. I can't be bothered to to look up the title, but it might be something about being an optimistic nihilist.
And yes, this is a busy time for me, and I have a lot of things to do. You're right. Haha.
So replies and posts might be few and far between.
