A second generation atheist is one born and raised in an atheistic environment by parents who are both atheists.

The term is used by atheists,[1] but it is not easy to find many examples of productive second generation atheists. While atheists raised in religious environments have occasionally been productive, atheists raised in atheistic environments are not known to be[2]. On the other hand, it has been shown that second generation atheists who converted to Christianity early in life have been moderately successful.

The following has been reported by Campus Crusade for Christ:[3]

In a study listed in Who's Who in Who's Who, it took 5,000 Presbyterian ministers to produce one child listed in Who's Who. Among lawyers the ratio was 5,000 to 1; dentists 2,500 to 1. But for every seven Christian missionary families from the United States, one of their children would be listed in Who's Who.
