After nearly 20 years of pastoral ministry in the Seventh-day Adventist Church, Ryan Bell was asked to resign in early 2013 due to doctrinal and some policy difference with the denomination. In 2014 he launched a blog, and a personal project, to explore what atheism is, and try, once and for all, to answer the nagging questions about his faith. By January 2015 Ryan was an atheist and a humanist. In mid-2015 he launched Life After God. This talk will walk you through the journey he has been on for the past five years, looking at what has changed and what has stayed the same.
