One can not "convert to atheism". It is a stupid saying.

Changing from christian to muslim or muslim to buddhist is like changing from heroin to cocaine or from LSD to methamphetamine.

Changing from religious to atheist is like giving up drugs and going clean. It is not a form of addiction, atheism is the removal of addiction that addles the mind.
