  • Yes and I am still religious. My belief is fine for me to practice, but I feel like the culture and the way my family raised me is somehow made me rebel. Some of them contains bullsheet that my belief doesn't find any wrong. For example:

    My belief: Ladies shall be brave to propose a man she likes
    My culture/family tradition: Ladies who propose a man is cheap and its inappropriate to do.

  • My grandma raised me, but she didn't go to chruch since she worked 6 days a week and had to clean and rest on Sunday for the grind to begin on Monday, but my mom did take me to chruch sometimes.

    I converted to Christianity later in college in 2010.

    I did all the "steps" from the christian religion because of my family even though I didn't even believe back them. I'm an atheist.

    • @Safa_Malfoy well it's not bad where I am... my area has Muslims of all different races though so maybe that's why. Like in class I have a few friends, one is Indian, another Russian and another is Somalian and we all get along. We have similar morals so I think that's why.
      Maybe you just need that community of like minded people around

  • My mother is a Protestant-Christian and my father an agnostic-atheist. Half of my family is probably Christian, while the other half either an agnostic or atheist. I wasn't forced to believe in anything and could believe what I wanted to. My family is liberal. But if I went to funerals, weddings, confirmations etc. it almost always happen in the church. My mother also sometimes took me to the church at Christmas because she didn't want to go alone, but after I stopped being a Christian, she accepted that I wanted to stop going to church then. My family celebrates both Christmas and Easter.

    Here's my belief journey in right order:
    Protestant -> Agnostic -> Nihilist atheist -> Agnostic -> Theist

  • Agnostic Theist.

    Agnostic theism, agnostotheism or agnostitheism is the philosophical view that encompasses both theism and agnosticism. An agnostic theist believes in the existence of a god or gods, but regards the basis of this proposition as unknown or inherently unknowable. The agnostic theist may also or alternatively be agnostic regarding the properties of the god or gods that they believe in.

  • They were the gentle type of religious who just wanted to teach us about our religion to prepare us for life.. They didn't call us bad names or make us do crazy shit when we made mistakes (me and my brothers).. I still remember during Ramadan we would all sit around reciting quran almost all night, good times.

    I understand some parents were not that kind of religious, I am sorry if you're the child of extremists

  • Yes I was raised in a Christian household and attended church regularly, then I was an Atheist for 11 years. I've just recently rediscovered the Bible and I'm Christian again, I don't attend church but I watch televangelists. In the end I just didn't get the answers I was looking for in Atheism.

    • So you think christianity is more comfortable, or did you become convinced by something in particular about it? Did you try reading other texts?

  • I was raised in a moderately-Catholic home, became quasi-non-religious for a while (and deeply heretical). Then, I did a few thousand hours of research, and I became a fanatically-religious Catholic, possibly even a Sedevacanist.
