The Church of the Children of the Atom seems to have existed as far back as Megaton's construction, as Manya mentions that they were instrumental in getting the town built. The citizens of Megaton do not mind the cult residing there as their technologies and workforce were needed to build the city, in exchange for it being "built around the bomb".


The Church of the Children of Atom believes that each atomic mass contains an entire universe, and that when an atomic mass is split many universes are created. Therefore, instead of seeing the Great War as destructive, the Church believes it was a creative and unifying holy event.


Behind the scenes

The Children of the Atom may be a reference to the film Beneath The Planet Of The Apes which included a cult that revolved around the worship of an atomic bomb.


The Church of the Children of Atom appears only in Fallout 3.
