    Wa 'alaykum assalaam. Eid Mubarak!

    I'm an ex-Muslim, but I'm not really anti-Islam anymore. I believe the religion, like almost any other religion in the world, is too diverse in its sects and various interpretations for blanket opposition to it to be reasonable or productive. Instead, I believe in endorsing progressive sects and interpretations and supporting attempts to reform ones that aren't.

    Welcome to the forum! I hope you enjoy your stay here.

    Debate here is defined to be any conversation in which one person corrects another, tries to show them where they are incorrect etc.

    Non-debate is any conversation in which people do not correct each other and merely state what they think about issues, not about what other people on the forum think.

    Debate must only happen in areas specially marked for debate, because that makes moderation easier.


    Accessing your dir, the Islam dir, requires changing a setting in your account settings -- adding a check to the 'Abrahamic' box then waiting for about an hour. Until then you will not be able to post in the Islam dir.

    'Dir' is short for directory'Dir' is short for 'Discuss Individual Religions' and it refers to an exclusive section of the forums. A Dir is a section of the forums exclusively for the use of people who belong to the designated religions or other groups For example only Christians may post in the Christian dir.

    - What made you apostatize? What kind of interpretations or reforms do you support? Which sets are you referring to?

    Thanks!

    Come now, we all know DIR is short for the Hebrew words דיר עיזים (Dir Izzim), which means "goat-pen", because that's what this place (sometimes) is.
