Presumably, this is about Leah Libresco. I don't think I'd call her a "top atheist" if there even is such a thing. Regardless, her blog post on her conversion seems to centered on deciding that morality must have some magical basis (despite the contrary evidence which she summarily dismisses) not on any revelation from a higher power. She seems to suffer from the same problem a lot of people do, assuming an objective morality without actually demonstrating one exists.
Actually she said that morality needed a basis or foundation. Atheism gives only moral relativism or social morals that constantly evolve and change.
As I said, she assumes an objective morality without demonstrating one actually exists, then decides it must have form in a person, and that person must be the Catholic version of God. The problem that she hopefully will address in future posts is that none of her assumptions rest on any foundation other than simply wanting it to be that way. She dismisses evolutionary psychology without explanation and offhandedly references some mathematical formulation she chooses not to share.
Popular atheist blogger? I've never heard of her. Funny that when Christians become atheists every day no one notices but an atheist goes Catholic and it's CNN newsworthy.
At least we still have Christina Rad.

Christian = Creationist?
Never heard of her. Top Atheist my arse!
Never heard of her.
Never heard of her either.
What does 'top atheist' even mean anyway?
Is there a 'top person' for people that reject the existence of dragons?
Much as people assume that gravity, electromagnetism, or the weak & strong nuclear forces exist. We can explain them by their effects, but we don't know what they ARE.
She's just one more example of the old saying that there's only two kinds of people.
Those who believe in God, and those who will.
Read "Where Men Win Honor" by Jon Krakauer. Pat Tillman went to his grave rejecting superstitious nonsense; and he was a man of honor, talent, intelligence and integrity.
With you lack of understanding atheist im not surprised by this post.
Never heard of her.
I just now went looking on Amazon for some of her atheist books, but I came up empty-handed.
So I then tried looked for some of her atheist postings on YouTube, and couldn't seem to find anything.
Has she been a spokesperson for any major atheist group?
Well, I'm looking forward to seeing her proof of god. I'll bet she couldn't even hold up her end if she came here to debate us.
She's obviously lost her mind. Hopefully she'll come to her senses and reject her misplaced faith in mysticism.
I wonder if Bible-based religions would have survived if they hadn't evolved their morality.
Did she say her atheist friends told her that Christianity makes more sense or did I misinterpret that?
Sounds like another person who claims "I used to be an atheist" when really she just didn't attend church.
She is a fulfillment of the great prophet Warhol... "In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes."
I'm sure the devil will put all that honor, talent, intelligence and integrity to good use.
I know all I need to know about Atheists.
All the other stuff you allude to is only important to atheists, not to me.
Convince yourself it's true, not me.
I know better.
