Most atheists I know are the first in their family to leave the faith.
You don’t see very many atheists who also had atheist parents.
Anyone here a second or third generation atheist?
Were both parents non-religious or just one of them?
How were you raised in regards to the answers to “the big questions”? Did you figure things out for yourself or were you simply told the answers (from an atheistic viewpoint)?
(Personally, I don’t think it counts if your parents were just apathetic about religion. If they went to church just on Christmas and Easter, we’re not talking about them, either. I’m asking only about parents who were openly non-religious.)
