Hello. I am new to Nirmuktha
[fon‌t=Trebuchet MS]
Hello. I am Nivas Jayaseelan from Vellore. I am 21 years old Biggrin
I turned an atheist five years ago. I was born in a Hindu family and my family is still religious. I too was religious as every kid from an Hindu family. But i was skeptical from childhood. When i was told not to eat non-vegetarian on Saturdays, i used to question my parents why we should not eat only on that day. Is Lord Venkateshwara sleeping on other days? I had full faith on lord Venkateshwara and even had once asked him to make me a superhuman with lot of super hero powers, when i went to TirumalaFace Palm.
Slowly, i got to know more scientific facts, but couldn't give up God. I started questioning everything. Even when i was 14 i never knew or even heard of atheists. I thought "how could i be the only person who ask such questions? How was the world created. Who created god? Even if God will give me an explanation, i will still have a doubt who created godThinking"
Slowly i came across people having similar thoughts. Even though i didn't known anyone personally, i have read about Atheism. Only then i turned an Agnostic. Even then i believed that all these religions are false, but some God is present. My motto for sometime was "I don't believe in any religion, but i believe in God." Later, i became a full atheist.
Now, even though my family is religious, i don't celebrate any festivals. I don't go to temples and my mom doesn't force me to.
