I’ve been looking around for sites authored by apostates of Islam and I found quite a few. There is a massive community of Ex-Muslims out there. I’ve selected a few of the sites that I found interesting.
1. FaithFreedom.org is a site administered by Ali Sina who’s perhaps the most influential ex-Muslim ever. He has done an amazing job building the #1 place for ex-Muslims. He has debated many people over the last few years but no one has been able to prove him wrong.
Faith Freedom International is a grassroots movement of ex-Muslims. Its goals are to (a) unmask Islam and show that it is an imperialistic ideology akin to Nazism but disguised as religion and (b) to help Muslims leave it, end this culture of hate caused by their “us” vs. “them” ethos and embrace the human race in amity. We strive for the unity of Mankind through the elimination of Islam, the most insidious doctrine of hate.
2. Apostate.wordpress.com is the weblog of a Pakistani woman raised in Saudi Arabia, who lives in America. Unlike most other apostates, she does not trash Islam but chooses to use eloquent language to express her feelings about Islam.
3. Apostates of Islam is an amazing site with many testimonials of how and why people left Islam. There are some really nice articles that expose the hateful diatribe and the ludicrous nonsense in the Quran and the Hadith.
4. Ergun Caner is a convert from Islam and often debates Muslims. He’s Written several books, and has appeared on MSNBC and other networks. Since he spoke at the conference last year, he has become dean of Liberty Theological Seminary in Lynchburg, Va., founded by the Rev. Jerry Falwell.
5. Khalas! by Abdul Quddus. Abdul has posted a heartfelt story about how he was dragged into the cult of Islam and how he realized his mistake and left it. Very inspiring.
6. Not Muslim Anymore. A Muslim turned Unitarian who comments on Islam and reports various attrocities carried out by Muslims.
7. Iraqi Atheist is a blogger from the war-torn Iraq telling how miserable life really is in Iraq and how Islam contributes to that misery.
8. Muslihoon is a Muslm turned Christian. An opinionated blogger and perhaps a brainy Republican (hey, all Republicans are brainy, right?)
9. Serendip is an Iranian blogger who strongly opposes the current law of Islamic Republic and demands freedom for the students and journalists arrested for speaking out. His blog is an interesting read and shows a silver lining of a pro-democracy revolution in Iran.
10. In the name of Towelie is a bunch of apostates of Islam with a sense of humour. Incredibly funny pictures and comments make this one the most entertaining apostate site.
If god can surprise himself, he is not omniscient. (that is, he is not all knowing cause he didn’t see that coming!)
If he can not surprise himself, he is not omnipotent. (that is, this is something he can not do!)
More and more people are leaving Islam every year. Ever since 9/11, Muslims have been paying more attention to Islam and many have become more conservative than before, but those people who are open-minded rational thinkers, have realized that Islam is a backward ideology of hatred and violence, and chose to break free. The apostate community is growing bigger by the day.
We can only hope that more and more people leave this 7th century cult started by a perverted warlord.
Edit (Aug 04, 2007): I left out Isaac Schrödinger, a Pakistani born apostate. His blog is really entertaining and worth a bookmark. Check it out.
