Zuckerberg, whose Facebook profile once identified him as an atheist, revealed he is now inclined towards religion after he wished all his followers a “Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah” on December 25.
A commentor, however, questioned the Facebook CEO’s Christmas and Hanukkah wishes asking, “Aren’t you an atheist?” To this, Zuckerberg asserted that he went through a phase. “No. I was raised Jewish and then I went through a period where I questioned things, but now I believe religion is very important,” he wrote.
