One big reason for me to at least make it known that I'm atheist is so that others who are afraid to come out as atheist -- or even to admit to themselves that they don't believe, will see that there are some other relatively normal people out there who feel the same way they do.  Why do I sometimes want to poke holes in other people's beliefs? Well, between us I can say that it's painful to watch otherwise smart people continue believing ridiculous things -- I guess that's somewhat akin to the orange juice idea.
