Hello

Hello, greetings from India. I have been an atheist from childhood, reading up on authors such as AT Kovoor and Edamaruku. Reading ‘God delusion’ was a new experience. India is often thought of as a religious country, and it is true to some extend. But there has always been an atheist current in Indian thought. I would like to share news from India and also get involved in discussions here.

Hi,

I’m an atheist too. But, it’s simply a different model for the world. I don’t see anything wrong with those who make sense of the world with religion, do you?

Hello,

I’m fairly new here too.

I consider myself an agnostic. Partly because there are so many different definitions for “God”, and partly because I know I do not have all the answers.

Welcome @byjuv, You'll find several atheists here, looking forward to your posts

Welcome to you also @dante.castagnoli, I am interested in what way you see how religion can serve as a different but still useful world model.
I’m fairly new here too.
A belated welcome to you @mrmhead. Have enjoyed your posts and perspectives.

Nice to meet you, byjuv. Glad to have you here. I’ve often wondered if people in India actually believed in that cool little monkey, Hanuman, or that Elephant as being gods or if they just see them a cute stories. I like the stories, but I view them as just that- stories and keep my mouth shut around those who say they are Hindus or Jains.

Welcome byjuv, looking forward to hearing from you.

I think some people need religion to keep them alive against all odds of life. You have to constantly fight with the society for remaining an atheist, in my experience.

Unfortunately, in India, majority of the people not only believe in these gods, they are ready to kill for the gods.

Byguv could you please talk about the largest organised workers strike in history recently in your country -250 million - why has it occured , the general public feeling about it and its outcomes thus far.

Thanks
