How many second generation atheists out there?

How many second generation atheists out there? June 16, 2014

I heard atheists accused of indoctrinating people this morning and it got me thinking.  Could we even do that?  When I’m giving a talk and I ask “How many of you used to be religious?” usually almost every hand goes up, suggesting that by and large atheists escaped indoctrination of religious parents, not the other way around.

So I’m curious: how many second generation atheists are there?  I actually just learned that I’m a third-generation atheist.  Both my parents are non-believers and my grandpa on my father’s side was an atheist as well.

So which are you?  First generation atheist?  Second?  Third?
