I have noticed that more and more of the people that I know are calling themselves atheists. Or a lot of teenagers will say “I’m supposed to be –insert religion here- but I don’t believe in it.” Why do teenagers do this? In biology, they teach us theories on how science thinks the earth was created. Religions have different theories on how they think it was created so is it leading to confusion? Do teenagers just surrender and give up on everything they believe in? I also think many teenagers don’t practice their religion like they should. Yeah sure, they go to church, but how many retain all of the information that they tell you?
My thought is, teenagers just go with the flow. Someone else says they’re atheist so they conform and go along with it. Teens are trying to discover who they are so their views and beliefs are changing. Since many don’t know what they believe, they think that not believing anything is the easy way out. I will say though, some teenagers probably are actually atheist but others are merely going through a phase.
So what are your religious views? Why do you think teenagers are calling themselves atheist?

In this case it's a song a written by one of my favorite musicians as a response to the feeling of horror and disbelief as he watched the Twin Towers in New York go from icons to ruins on 9/11/01. The song is sad,…See More
