Growing up from a conservative Catholic family, Red was filled with questions about his religion which were all left unanswered. Later on, he explored different religions—Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism—just to sought answers and find his “god.” However, Tani didn’t find a tangible evidence that God exists. Red shared that there were even times that he tried to pray just to feel that he was talking to ‘someone’ or ‘someone’ was listening to him, but he sensed nothing. From there, his belief that God does not exist was formed.
What are his family’s reactions towards him being an atheist? What are the beliefs of atheists like him? What can make them believe that there is a God?
