An interesting take on young converts to atheism

This article from The Atlantic has some surprising findings about young people who ‘convert’ to atheism. To quote the penultimate paragraph: “These students were, above all else, idealists who longed for authenticity, and having failed to find it in their churches, they settled for a non-belief that, while less grand in its promises, felt more genuine and attainable. I again quote Michael: ‘Christianity is something that if you really believed it, it would change your life and you would want to change [the lives] of others. I haven’t seen too much of that.’”
