As we all (should) know, advancements in technology are continuing to accelerate at a breathtaking rate. We buy the latest and greatest laptops only to replace them a couple of years later with technology that is ten times better, and at much the same price. Researchers and commonfolk alike have access at their fingertips to a never ending stream of quality information that not even all the (book) libraries in the world could match.
And so we are also witnessing a massive shakeup with religion which is no longer considered the norm in civilized society but has been relegated to being no more than being beyond the pail, an alternative, an escape from reality and certainly, irrelevant to the cultures, morals, and lifestyles of today's modern, civilized folk. People continue to leave Churches in droves and its no surprise given the mountains of valid, quality information that those of faith can access.
Old habits die hard, especially culturally bad habits which tend to linger on through generations which begs the question...are we going to witness the demise of religion sooner rather than later?
