Hello!

My name is Evren and I am a Turkish atheist. I have a Bs in Civil Engineering and I am currently studying for my master’s degree in Social Anthropology. My thesis will focus on the lives of atheists in Turkey, and their confrontation with religion as a definitive element of national identity, cultural norms, and ultimately the state apparatus. I am excited to have a chance to exchange ideas with secular people from all over the world here on CFI forums.

Thanks for having me.

You’re always welcome at a place like this.

I feel lonely being an atheist in small-town Alberta, Canada, I can’t imagine the loneliness of being one in a country like Turkey.

Welcome. Welcome. Welcome.

As a fabrication of our own consciousness, our assignations of meaning are no less “real”, but since humans and the fabrications of our consciousness are routinely fraught with error, it makes sense, to me, to, sometimes, question such fabrications.
