A Kuwaiti web site was established in 2002 with the purpose of providing a platform for dialogue among Arab intellectuals who are concerned about their culture which seems to have stagnated, and is failing to cope with the modern world. This article comments on a rather unique subject that was presented in mid-May 2006, in which a Muslim intellectual shares his reason for deciding to leave Islam and find refuge in secularism.
