The human journey is an emotional quest to find truth and meaning. Countless books have presented this story through the eyes of people who concluded their search with devotion to God, salvation by Jesus, or commitment to religion. But a growing number are choosing a different path, finding truth and meaning from the opposite perspective. Generation Atheist tells their stories.
The people in this book come from different religious upbringings, races, sexual orientations, and genders. Many have gone through very emotional journeys in coming to a sustained, open atheistic worldview. Most were quite religious at one point in their lives. Through the internet, humanity is engaged in a global conversation unlike any before in history — about who we are, why we are here, and how we should live — and these individuals have an important perspective to share.
