How exactly, does one convert to atheism?
Is it more of an implicit agnosticism?
Is it simply admitting one was wrong?
Is "conversion" even the right word?
How can you be sure that niggling apprehension you might feel isn't just a way of hedging your bet?

Doubt.
Agnosticism as an expression of doubt concerning one's choices.
It tends to creep up on you.

?
Ah. Creeping doubts. Gotcha. Sorry, English is not my first language so the play on words was lost on me.

What's wrong with "doubt" in the sense that "I could be convinced otherwise" though?
Convincing evidence in the case of god would have to be rather extraordinary indeed, wouldn't it?
I think transition is a great term.
