When I was a teenager like 15 also up until about 24. I believe there is something labeled as “God” now ,and although it’s really hard to understand, I just feel it.

My parents weren't religious either so I didn't grow up that way. I can't remember ever believing in God. I've never even seen a bible in person :dies:

I wouldn't say I am. I do believe there is more to this world than what we can see and am open to the possibility of a god. I wouldn't exactly call myself a Bible thumper, though.

I was always skeptical of my religion, but officially accepted and started to label myself as atheist when I was 15

My family isn't religious so I wasn't raised in any religion so I've never been a believer I think.

Was never religious or spiritual, probably decided I was never going to be before I was 10.

At 20 or 21 while studying philosophy at university. I remember fighting it for a while, as I was deeply religious in my teenage years.

It's liberating to feel that I know longer need to conform my country's most stanned religion. I won't say I've completely abandoned the idea of god, I still think there's a higher being than me for the sake of having one, but for the most part that's anything religious, nothing.

I never really liked Church or particularly believed in anything, but I’d say that going through the confirmation process around 16-17 really drove me over the edge. The way I had to sit there, privately in denial about being gay, forcing myself to write an essay about how I wanted to be confirmed so that I could marry in the church and raise my children in the church... My faith and belief in anything died then.

 

They’re so sneaky, normalizing that first communion and confirmation are done when we’re underage so that our parents can force us to do it. It ****ing disgusts me.

Like 9-10, I was always strongwilled, I could not tolerate people telling me what to think without any reasonings :skull:

I mean I never really thought about it critically but thought of myself as agnostic or Christian depending on my mood until 18 and I took an ethics class and we talked about theories of the afterlife.  Then everything clicked to me.
