Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg Drops Atheism and Doubts For...?

Mark Zuckerberg has been open in the past about having atheist beliefs, but now his views on religion have changed and he considers it to be a "very important" part of his life.

Zuckerberg, whose Facebook profile once identified him as an atheist, revealed his change of heart on his social media network after he wished everyone on December 25 a "Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah" from "Priscilla, Max, Beast and me", referring to his wife, daughter and dog.

Of the 26,000 comments on the Facebook post, one reader commented asking Zuckerberg: "Aren't you an atheist?" In response, Zuckerberg wrote, "No".

"No", he wrote. "I was raised Jewish and then I went through a period where I questioned things, but now I believe religion is very important".

In October 2015, he posted a photo of himself praying at Wild Goose Pagoda in Xi'an China. Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, have publicly discussed their moral values frequently - including in a lengthy letter when their daughter was born a year ago, in which they pledged to donate 99 percent of their Facebook stock, which at about $45 billion at the time was one of the largest philanthropic commitments ever. Buddhism is an unbelievable religion and philosophy, and I have been learning more about it over time. The initiative was launched by Facebook Engineering Director Arturo Bejar after he attended the Wisdom 2.0 conference back in 2010. He and his wife also journeyed to the Vatican, where they met with Pope Francis and shared a heartfelt message with him, expressing their admiration for his tender mercy and the manner in which he communicates with the world.
