Hey Nick, I didn't know that. Although it's still anecdotal, it does add another piece to the equation. we'll probably never know for sure, but as pianodwarf mentioned, his words have a strong flavor of non-belief if you pay attention.

And Gawd, you make a good point about the possibility of being a bot. That's still more evidence than I've ever seen for that other guy.  ;D

Well I didn't know that either.  So I googled!  And I got:

Dunham's daughter, Maya Soetoro-Ng, when asked later if her mother was an atheist, said, "I wouldn't have called her an atheist. She was an agnostic. She basically gave us all the good books—the Bible, the Hindu Upanishads and the Buddhist scripture, the Tao Te Ching—and wanted us to recognize that everyone has something beautiful to contribute."[33] "Jesus, she felt, was a wonderful example. But she felt that a lot of Christians behaved in un-Christian ways."[67] On the other hand, Maxine Box, Dunham's best friend in high school, said that Dunham "touted herself [then] as an atheist, and it was something she'd read about and could argue. She was always challenging and arguing and comparing. She was already thinking about things that the rest of us hadn't."[6]

"My father was almost entirely absent from my childhood, having been divorced from my mother when I was 2 years old; in any event, although my father had been raised a Muslim, by the time he met my mother he was a confirmed atheist, thinking religion to be so much superstition."
