Jackie, William and Rachel each came from religious homes. So what made them question, and ultimately reject, the belief systems of their childhood? We let them explain...in their own words.

These interviews were filmed at the 2012 Ascent of Atheism Conference in Denver, Colorado. Special thanks to the Atheist Alliance of America for providing the venue. http://atheistallianceamerica.org/

31 years a believer, 25 years on a church staff, and after an exhaustive investigation have come to the unmistakable conclusion that it is all a lie. No longer a sheep.

Morality is doing what is right, regardless of what you're told. Religion is doing what you're told. regardless of what is right.

Awesome video. It's so heartening to see young people waking up after years of indoctrination. I escaped the lifetime of lies at 18 and have not looked back. How anyone could believe the silly fairytales of the Bible is mystifying. Sadly, children have to endure the abuse of being told these "cute" stories...but eventually, many of us will open our eyes. Cutsey Noah's ark= God's genocidal mania. 6000 year-old earth?...come on! "Gays are evil...let's stone them"...not gonna fly. Truth will out.

You can guarantee that every atheist on the planet has given some serious thought to the possibility of the existence of a god, probably even started out as a believer,  just like these three.  You can equally guarantee that no totally convinced religious person has ever even contemplated the non-existence of a god.  Fear is a powerful tool.
