Yup. It's tough for malays to renounce their religion, it's sad. But I'm surprised that you managed to find them. To be honest, I don't even know one. It's very difficult for me to open up with my malay friends. Not that they're very religious, but they either think I'm just screwed up or they just didn't take it too seriously. We're a small community so that could be the reason why there are not many atheist or agnostic among us. Ironically, there are lots of atheists and agnostics in the worlds largest muslim populated country - Indonesia :)
Sorry about that, I haven't checked this email account for a long time but I will do that regularly now. How did the project went? Did you find other malay atheists? It's tough. Is this a written project? I'm actually interested to check it out.
Greetings, Lin Shu Hui! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
