It remains socially unacceptable to disclose you are an athiest - so individuals usually don't disclose their "status". I personally teeter between agnosticism and athieism and I have the insight to acknowledge that is because I realize (some) religious beliefs do have a consoling function (however, the more reasoned regions of my brain realize that lots of things that console us are not necessarily healthy or "true" (e.g., fairy stories, alcohol and drugs).
I am caught between amusement and irritation when believers announce to me that the reason I do not believe in "god" is because of my negative experiences with JWs and that if I only realized what "true" Christianity was like....and so on. Sure, my experiences shape me - just as believers experiences shape them. Even so, what ever those experiences are, they may provide seemingly logical reasons either to believe or disbelieve. But thaty is separate from whether or not there is a god.
