Discussion by: Eddie BrazilHello, everyone.
I have been a fan of Prof. Dawkins for years and I absolutely admire him for everything he’s done to make people aware of the delusion of religions and all the harm they cause.
I am a Brazilian citizen and I have traveled and lived abroad and, boy, I can say I had my share of cultural exchange here and there.
Here in Brazil it’s not a big deal to say you’re an atheist. People won’t care much about your beliefs, as long as you behave and interact socially in an appropriate and acceptable manner.
I was raised as a Roman Catholic (as if I had a choice when they baptized me) just like the majority of kids here in Brazil are. Some members of my family go to church every Sunday, but there was never a single fuss over me becoming an atheist. I was never a very religious boy, didn’t even go to church, but I inevitably ended up an atheist after living in countries where people had different gods.
I know, however, that in some places it’s not just simple as that. And I am not referring to the obvious regions of the world ruled by Islamism. I am talking about developed or developing countries, like mine.
Anyone would care to share personal this kind of info based on georgraphic regions here?
