    How did you come to your personal religious beliefs? Was it through family, school, or personal?

    I was raised Catholic and fervently believed...until I began looking around at how innocent people suffer in this world.The more I traveled the more convinced I became that If there is a god,he must be at best incompetent or at worst down right evil;Then I Really read the old testament with open eyes...then I walked away from religion and haven't looked back since.I do not miss the fear and guilt hammered into my brain as a child...not one bit.

    I would call my beliefs religious, per se, but I am fairly spiritual. I wasn't raised in a religious household, so any of my faith comes from m own research and experimentation.

    I was raised to question, discover and enjoy learning, including about religion. So we were raised without a particular religion, but exposed to a number by our friends, family and the world.

    We were also raised to respect the beliefs of others - so if our beliefs were different, we weren't to make fun or tell them that they were wrong. But, it was ok to question respectfully. And also ok to state our belief as long as we weren't trying to push them into ours.

    I am an Agnostic-Atheist - which is helpful given that I enjoy learning about different religions. So, I guess it was through family, and personal.

      Yes, I came from a family that believed in teaching Critical thinking as well...You might not agree all the time, but at least you would be able to make a concrete argument for your side.
