I can’t say how many times(3) I go to a new kebab shop to eat because I am hungry(obviously), asked my origin, then the next question: are you muslim? and its always with this cheeky smile, as if they met their new bestfriend. I mean wtf? what does it have to do with anything? why is it that important to be muslim? bleh!

Yesterday was the worse time…

fuck face:Are you muslim?

me:No

fuck face:Are you christian?

me: No

fuck face:What then?

me:Atheist

other fuck face: what is an atheist?

fuck face: someone who doesn’t believe in any religion.

other fuck face: aha (frown)

fuck face: so what is your family,Β  also atheist?

me: (knowing that he wants to associate me whether I like it or not) there are some atheist yeah.

fuck face: all of them?

me: no . (turned my back and finished eating)

fuck face: hmm (invisible frown)

  1. hehehehe i love the way that religious people react when you tell them you’re an atheist!!! πŸ˜€ most of them try to convince you otherwise, and some of them just stop talking to you after a while!!! it’s a very funny reaction πŸ˜€

  2. I don’t go to places where I have been asked that question.

  3. Kodder,

    this happens to me a lot in London and especially Paki and Bangladeshi cab drivers. And I usually respond as you do.

    People like this just make me more and more disgusted by the idea of religion. I sincerely don’t want to belong to something that seems to attract such kind of people. God says this and we can not question him – which is utter bullshit for historians and an aspiring historian like me who have formulated many possibilities with regards to the monotheistic religions being complete fabrications. And the funny thing is that the more I learnt and studied these religions, the farther away I became. Gladly πŸ™‚

  4. for me the people who ask me are turks, algerians, tunisians are libyans.
    There is a kebab shop with palestenians and syrians, they never ask me that.
    Because they know its bad manners to ask that question.
    And I hear you about the fabrications, for me I started doubting religion around 10 year old or something had something like that in my mind: if god wanted women veiled, why doesn’t he make them invisible, he is all powerful”.
    hehe πŸ˜›
    I have said something on a previous blog,something like: “if you read alot about one religion you become fundamentalist, if you read alot about all religions you become atheist”.

  5. Definitely agreeing with you on that πŸ™‚
