← India: atheism in the land of a thousand gods

HarryKey's Avatar Jump to comment 28 by HarryKey

I love India. I lived there for 5 years as a Bollwood actor - and their crazy spirituality is so deeply ingrained it's incredible.

This movement is necessary because there are so many atheists who are trapped there - a friend told me that it took him 30 years to pluck up the courage to tell his father that he was an atheist, only to hear his father say "So am I, but don't mention it to your grandfather"

Many are in similar situations, not believing the mythology but following the rituals for fear of being ostracized.

Good work, I'd love to help!
