 I also grew up in a very religious Christian Orthodox family and country. Went to church twice a week and maybe once a month to the monastery.

Been an atheist/agnostic for the last ~12 years. I'm surprised how many people don't seem to realise that their religion/faith is heavily influenced by when and where they were born/raised.

To me, the fact that there are so many faiths, religions, and gods, all with their own individual claims and "proofs" why they're true, made checkout completely. It just doesn't make sense. Live a good life, by serving others and your wellbeing will improve.

I'm more than happy for people to practice whatever faith/religion they want, as long as it doesn't hurt me. It's everyone's fundamental right to believe whatever they want.
