In a post of Mark Zuckerberg, where he wished him followers Merry Christmas, a facebook user asked him if he's an atheist. Zuckerberg replied saying that he's not an atheist anymore and religion is important to him.
“Facebook founder finally found his God,” you might think like that after reading Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook post on the Christmas eve. Zuckerberg announced on December 25 last year that he was celebrating the Christmas. Here’s what he wrote:
Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah from Priscilla, Max, Beast and Me.
Zuckerberg wished everyone Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah while writing the name of his wife, daughter, and dog. After a while, a Facebook user asked him, “But Aren’t You Atheist?”
Zuckerberg was considered to be an atheist for a long time. But Facebook CEO took the liberty to answer the question this time and this is what he wrote,
No. I was raised Jewish and then I went through a period where I questioned things, but now I believe religion is very important.
Mark Zuckerberg hasn’t written anything more about his belief later. The conversation ended with one response from the Facebook founder. However, Zuckerberg and his wife talked about their moral values several times in the past. They wrote an open letter when their daughter was born in 2015, where they wrote about donating 99 percent of their share of Facebook. The price of that shares were 45 billion US dollars that time. It was one of the most philanthropic commitments ever, according to The Washington Post. They also met with one of the most important religious figures in the world, Pope Francis, in the past and discussed the ways to use technology to end poverty.
