Christian.  At age 16, I had intuitions about what was good for
societies, and for two weeks I actually adhered to Islam. But
clearly the *belief* in anything was weaking and I gradually
became agnostic.  Then one day in the summer when I was
18 (1966), a friend opined that he thought that agnostics were
simply people who were too chicken to admit that they were
atheists, and I have been a vociferous and stalwart atheist
ever since.

I think that this is the answer you were after.

I'm sure that many people have more interesting confessionals
than mine.
