Hi atheists, Mark Zuckerberg, co-founder of Facebook, is no longer with you. The multi-billionaire, who was raised in a Jewish family, says he is returning to the faith.
In a Facebook message on December 25, 2016, Zuckerberg brought Christmas greetings from his family.
“Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah from Priscilla, Max, Beast and me! Seeing the moments of joy and family shared on Facebook today is one of my favorite things about our community,” he wrote on Facebook.
Zuckerberg then goes on to say a word of prayer for the entire world.
“I hope you’re surrounded by friends and loved ones, and that you have a chance to reflect on all the meaningful things in your life. May the light of your friendships continue to brighten your life and our entire world.”
He was quickly questioned by José Antonio, a web developer and Facebook user. “But Aren’t You Atheist?” Antonio asked, and Zuckerberg said he was no longer an atheist.
“No. I was raised Jewish and then I went through a period where I questioned things, but now I believe religion is very important,” Zuckerberg replied.
