Possible future 'converters'?
Richard Dawkins; Christopher Hitchens (I know he's already dead, but give it a decade or two.); Terry Pratchett; Stephen Hawking; Stephen Fry; Lawrence Krauss. I'm slightly surprised that Herr Nietzsche hasn't had one yet. --Scherben (talk) 17:37, 29 August 2017 (UTC)

...actually 'converted' at the last moment 'for the money' (as part of the deal with Louis XIV).
There are also those cases where it is the convention to express religious belief (or become a religious) at the very end of life; and there are likely to be many cases of 'I am looking forward to the next big adventure.'
Surely God (however defined) will be more impressed by someone saying 'I was faithful to my lack of religious belief and I was as ethical and helpful to those around me as I could' than by someone who expresses a last minute display of hypocrisy? Anna Livia (talk) 10:40, 20 March 2018 (UTC)
- @Anna Livia Atwater actually did convert to Catholicisim after his received his cancer diagnosis as likely terminal (Lee Atwater § Conversion to Roman Catholicism and repentance. It's not clear what he converted from however. Bongolian (talk) 16:14, 26 May 2019 (UTC)
