    Is Religion dying? 

    Can you prove that it's dying?

    What national news outlet mentioned that in it's previous Christmas coverage? 

    According to who?
    CBS, ABC, NBC, NSNBC, CNN, NPR, Fox News, or maybe WHRO, mentioned that Religion was dying?

    Religion is about as dead as the previous forum that was mentioning this website:

    "Americans Are Becoming Less Religious

    Fewer people in the U.S. are identifying with a religion, as the global population becomes more religious and Muslim.

    By Casey Leins, Staff Writer April 11, 2017
    The Church of Christ at Dartmouth College in Hanover New Hampshire USA - a church which is completely white from the ceiling to the rooftop The United Church of Christ UCC is a mainline Protestant Christian denomination with historical confessional roots in the Reformed Congregational and Lutheran traditions

    The Church of Christ at Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H. New Hampshire ties with Massachusetts as the least religious state.

    THE WORLD'S RELIGIOUS landscape is undergoing a major restructuring, as the population becomes increasingly religious and Muslim, according to recent studies.

    The percentage of people who identify as non-religious is expected to fall from 16 percent in 2015 to 13 percent in 2060, the Pew Research Center reports. These "religious nones," which include atheists, agnostics and those who do not identify with any particular religion, tend to be older and have fewer children than those who are religious. As a result, their death rates will begin to exceed their birth rates, the study explains.

    Though the Christian population will still be slightly larger than the Muslim population, the Muslim population will see many more births.(PEW RESEARCH CENTER)

    Among religious people, the number of babies born to Muslims is expected to surpass those born to Christians between 2030 and 2035. The trend is driven by high death rates for Christian populations in some regions, combined with extremely high fertility rates among Muslims.

    In the U.S. alone, the Christian population decreased by nearly 8 percent between 2007 and 2014. Over that same time period, the Muslim population showed a slight increase.

    But unlike the global projections, the U.S. has seen, and will continue to see, a rise of the "religious none." A larger portion of the nation's population describes themselves as religiously unaffiliated, jumping up 7 percent from 2007 to 2014. And unlike other countries, religiously unaffiliated people in the U.S. tend to be younger than those who belong to a religious group.

    Since the majority of "religious nones" live in Asia, the growing lack of religion in the U.S. doesn't carry enough weight to sway the global trend.

    Many of the nation's "religious nones" live in New England. Only one in three Massachusetts and New Hampshire residents put themselves in the "highly religious" category and about one in three say they are religiously unaffiliated.

    Less than one in six Massachusetts residents say they are Christian, but the state has a larger portion of non-Christian faiths, including a 3 percent Jewish and 1 percent Muslim population.

    New England has the lowest percentage of "highly religious" adults.(PEW RESEARCH CENTER)

    Alabama and Mississippi, on the other hand, hold the most religious populations. More than three in four people in both states say they are "highly religious," according to Pew.

    In Mississippi, 83 percent of adults are Christian, most identifying at evangelical protestant and less than one percent as Muslim.

    All I did was mention the below website:

    http://www.atheistrepublic.com/ 

    But then look at your response:

    Remember, the forum that got deleted? 

    "Yeah it was deleted because your Atheist Republic debate was bbbaaaaaddddddd."

    I'm sorry, what was bad about merely mentioning a website? 

    Why don't you invite:

    Casey Leins, Staff Writer

    Ms Leins to this specific forum, and see what they think of your forum handiwork? 

    I'm sure that USNEWS and WORLD REPORT would like the free publicity?

    Publicity is not ever free by a truthful definition, as the exposure to the general welfare always holds a self-value or assigned cost of some-kind. The cost or self-value may not be held only by an impartial registered receipt The Freedom of religion by lack of any grievance from other religious, a principle stating a whole truth that a religion need not impose a self-value or assigned cost to live as a publicly shared belief among people.

  • At first, I was unsure, but then I looked at some websites and it does not look like that at all:

    http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2017/04/05/christians-remain-worlds-largest-religious-group-but-they-are-declining-in-europe/

    "Christians had the most births and deaths of any religious group in recent years, according to our demographic models. Between 2010 and 2015, an estimated 223 million babies were born to Christian mothers and roughly 107 million Christians died – a natural increase of 116 million. "

    "Not all babies will remain in the religion of their mother, of course. In some countries, including the United States, it is fairly common for adults to leave their childhood religion and switch to another faith (or no faith). Globally, however, the effect of religious switching is overshadowed by the impact of differences in fertility and mortality."
  • It is different in different places on earth. In Europe, North America and Australia it is declining. More people are becoming atheist/agnostic, and most christians are only mildly so. However in Asia, Christianity is rising. In the Middle-East and Africa, Islam is also spreading, since muslim families have more children on average, than Christian or Atheist ones. I'd say the percentage of religious/non-religious people in the world will stay the same, but it will change in most regions.

    When I was in Europe they were converting some of the huge cathedrals to condos. That was 2001. I think the trend will continue. (I was in Zaragoza, Spain on 9/11)
    It amazes me how many people still depend on the internet for arguments. SO much of it is phony or driven by someone's ideology. Better to go back to thinking about what you SEE, feel and checking out what you hear (in multiple references) … like we used to. The internet is becoming a sewer in many areas.
