    And what will happen if they openly announce their atheism? :cosbyhmm:

    I am a muslim but I have just been wandering as I have never heard of such cases. Are they punishable by death according to the laws there?

    Also for the Somali atheist here, are you or do you have the desire to move to motherland?

    A lot but no one will ever admit it because it's just our culture and it's the way it has been for years. Just look at how some behave.

    They would die. Apostasy is punishable by death there. So if there are any, they're not revealing themselves.

    Oh, to your second question, nope. But I'm a deist, not an atheist. I sensibly believe in God. Religion just isn't my cup of tea, since certain aspects make no sense.

    I don't see how having the death penalty would do any good. You will just force them to become hypocrites which would be worse.

    Back in the day when an Oromo converted to Islam, they used to say he is a Somali now.

    I appreciate your worries brother. If religion is an important aspect of your life, then I hope you live it with honor and happiness.

    The curiosity of Somali atheists is usually taken up by those who are dabbling with it themselves

    It's a slippery slope. Those who wish to stay with their faith should leave such conversations alone imho. Live your life.

    Somali identity is shaped by Islam so Somalis before Islam weren't Somalis or at least the Somalis we know today

    By that definition, your point makes sense. Culturally speaking, a Somali would cease to be a "cultural" Somali, when leaving their faith. That certainly makes sense.

    I don't believe in death penalty. It closes the door for anyone who has doubts to come and clear the doubts if they have.
