Are you a Noachide or is that just a user name? If so, why.

Because I am not a Jew. I renounced my former religion to become noahide.

Congratulations for leaving that disgusting cult. Are you afraid of your relatives? Will they hurt you if they find out you left Islam?

You are aware that apostasy is punishable by death according to many Muslim scholars, and that many former Muslims have been killed for that reason ?

What do you think of Islam ?

Afraid yes. and most likely become disowned.

Certainly aware of the consequences. I always thought the religion is dangerous in my young years and did not want to tell any of the muslim friends and always said to myself this can't be the true religion if violence around the world keeps happening in the hands of islamic extremists. The whole religion is just weird to me especially about the kabaa being built by Adam, then got destroyed, and then rebuilt by Abraham. I find muhammed to be boring.

So I remained halal and always refrained from adultery but I was never religious until 2 years after 911 when I researched all three Abrahamic faiths for several years to reach the conclusion that I find Judaism the one true religion.

Don't you think he is far worse than "boring" ? Is it really the appropriate word that comes to your mind when thinking about this man ?

Not exactly the right word for his actions. I was referring to his revelation about his illiteracy, a spider that saved his life, then became a prophet through dreams after reciting the quran, and then miraculously became literate.
It just seems superstitious. It's like going to a psychic teller for a fortune.

Let's say he was superstitious. What about the fact that he practiced and promoted theft, lie, rape, murder, pedophilia ?

This is exactly one reason I left islam. I found him to be a terrible role model. An example I can't seem to ever condone if he murdered people in cold blood. According to muslim scholars and imams, the Jews of Quraza tribe wanted to murder mohammed. That is why Jews are loathed by Muslims.

Without going into too personal details of myself, I'm a US born citizen of Yemenite descent.

Apparently, being from the states I do have many Christian friends as well a few Jewish friends from my homeland country.
how do I feel about Christians you asked?  No thoughts in particular. I don't care what religion a person follows or if they're atheist. I like the fact it is a melting pot society with plenty of diversity among people and cultures.

According to a rabbi I spoke to, synagogues are not necessary for noachides.
Noachides still do follow Judaism and have organizations.

Shalom Noachide,

I have found the following websites which provide great information for Noachides.

http://noahidenations.com/

http://www.noahide.org/

http://www.bnti.us/

http://www.bnti.us/links/bnai_noach_links.html

I want to say Yasher Koach Noachide... It warms my heart to know that people are finding the truth of Hashem through our Torah. The Jewish people should be proud of you and your congregation...

And you shall call out and say before the Lord, your God, "An Aramean [sought to] destroy my forefather, and he went down to Egypt and sojourned there with a small number of people, and there, he became a great, mighty, and numerous nation.
Devarim/Ki Tavo 26:5

This thread made me think of this song. "Returning to the universe, give out the word, abandon earth"

Why would I be kidding? I thought you were allowed to eat them now that you're not a Muslim anymore and since you haven't adopted actual Judaism but are a Noahide.

Think of it this way, what better way to make a final break with any Islamic thought.

I rather you shoot me in the chest than me eating a disgusting animal such as a pig. It smells awful for crying out loud. Jews do not consume pork. Are you a Jew? I follow what's right including abstaining from pork and any immoral acts.
I really want to be a Jew but I can't for two reasons: one is because it is very difficult to do Ger and the other is my family risking an isolation.
