Back in January, we told you about the mission of Ryan Bell, a former pastor and Christian university professor who decided he was going to spend 2014 "without God" and doing "whatever I can to enter the world of atheism and live, for a year, as an atheist.” Well, it's been a year, and it must have been a good ride, because Bell isn't getting off. He told NPR that he's now an actual atheist and doesn't believe in God anymore, saying:

I don't think that God exists. I think that makes the most sense of the evidence that I have and my experience. But I don't think that's necessarily the most interesting thing about me ... It's, I think, an expression of really the part of me that hasn't changed. I'm still the same person deep down that I was before. I care about justice and equality, and I want to see opportunities spread more evenly in our society.

Since he's no longer a pastor, Bell is current Director of Community Engagement at People Assisting the Homeless. You can read his blog about his journey here ... Discuss
