Mark Zuckerberg Is No Longer an Atheist, Now Believes Religion is 'Very Important'

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.

The 32-year-old Facebook co-founder’s views were revealed after he sent his followers a Christmas and Hanukkah message last week.

A commenter asked, “Aren’t you an atheist?”

    It is always good to have faith in something so I am glad for him.

    Well, Mark is listed as a pledge for humanity on the official Illuminati website. Could that have anything to do with it?

    Not really. Lack of faith saves lives.

    Lack of faith doesn’t save, but kill… a lot.

    Yeah, that’s why at least one side of all wars and terrorism is in “god’s” name…

    The Catholic Church is the largest non-government provider of health care services in the world. Next time, when you need medical care, choose a hospital that doesn’t have any religious affiliation or not supported by any religious organisation :)

    I guess they had to do something to counter all those perverted priest and Nazi sympathizing.

    Good for him!!

    I believe religion is important but I’m an Atheist. His statement doesn’t necessarily mean he’s now religious.

    I personally have no need for religion but there are many people who just can’t cope without believing there is someone looking out for them and some safe place after death.

    For those people I do think religion is important.

  • Post Purgatory

    More people have been killed under the rally of religion than have been helped by all the religiously affiliated hospitals on the planet. Good to see the church making some reparations though.

  • John Dow

    I know only one religion or i’d better call it a barbaric cult, which followers have been killing people non-stop for ages. That cult has nothing to do with Christianity or Catholicism.

  • Post Purgatory

    Wow, a little ignorant of history? Islam is militant due to the actions of Christianity. Ever heard of the Crusades?

  • John Dow

    I was born and raised in a country where the official ideology was the elimination of religion and its replacement with universal atheism. I know a lot of historical, well-documented and sometimes very ugly facts about religion (and not only), that you’ve never heard about.

    The history that you know has been changed and altered over and over again to fit certain agenda and narrative.

    It did not save my husband.


    Wow. Islam is militant because the Koran is militant, you shameless dummy.
