Are you atheist agnostic or follower of any religion ? and what are the personal reasons for your position.? I begin as Catholic the first 18 years of my life , My mother was a very devout Catholic and she was very sick all her life . I always wonder since my childhood : Why she suffer so much ? When I was 21 , I start a personal search studing all religions and philosophies and I became agnostic . Buddhism is the only religion that make fair sense to me but I'm not a buddhist. Atleast not yet . I prefer to base my life in facts not in speculations , that's the reason of why I don't follow any religion . Please discuss the personal reasons of your position .
