Yes, there seems to be this "as long as I am praying to allah I don't mind if he drops a whole building on my head" thinking here. Can this also translate to the delusional ones who say, "as long as I blow up a neighborhood doing the will of allah, then I'm cool with that because allah is pleased with me."

This reminds me of many men saying, "I would love to die having sex with *insert hot girl's name here*"

Anyway, I would love to hear how you broke away from that faith, Kleenex.

i was a practicing muslim for many years being born in the middle east. i came here when 16 and continued believing in god and considering myself spiritual/religious. my parents are not religious at all but never forced me in either direction which i'm thankful for.
i always considered evolution as fact but never went as far as seeing (or wanting to see) the contradictions that the two concepts would present.
a year and a half ago, when i was 27-28, i started listening to and reading Richard Dawkins. i read his the god delusion book and that changed my life. it forced me to take a hard look at what i believed and changed my mindset to asking for evidence before blindly accepting ideas. i consider my atheism to be a great achievement in my life.

Not that I will indulge myself in the suffering of people. I think you should go pray to all the haiti deaths of 230k. Sodom? It is quite sick for me to even think to mention such suffering of people. Not fruits of muslims like myself.
