As the oldest sibling there were a few years in my early childhood that I had nobody to play with. So I would run from one end of my parents’ apartment to the next fighting with my imaginary friends. Boy was I good at martial arts… in my own imagination of course.
We would play power Rangers. I would even lose the battle sometimes and “die.” This is all on home video footage and it’s a very cute memory. It certainly influences my imagination for the rest of my life and even today.
I began writing in my other site Ex-Muslim Rants as a way to openly critique daily Muslim life I would observe in my family and society. However, as I met more secular bloggers, ex-Muslims etc. my horizons on critiquing the role of religion in society expanded. I realized that a blog title called “ExMuslim Rants” would confine me to merely critiquing the Islamic lifestyle and faith. Through this new site, I seek to expand my options.
I have copied and pasted all the articles from the previous site to this site.
Goals of The Secular Brownie
In The Secular Brownie, we will examine:
The effects of religion and dogma on society
Mainstream politics and problematic popular misconceptions of contemporary events.
Personal observations from my daily life regarding the effects of religiosity/faith.
I am very excited about some of the posts to come.
