One of my commenters, gfish, has an interesting piece up at his blog about atheism and growing up in the USSR. Go check it out. While I’ve lived in the US all my life, I’m also a lifelong atheist – I don’t have some fancy deconversion story about leaving the faith – so I can relate to his post. It’s also interesting seeing the “other side” of the story, since over in the US we get a pretty biased view of what was going on in the USSR religion-wise.
