Do you think the world is becoming less religious?


When asked about their religion in the most recent global survey that was conducted in 2012, it turned out that the lack of religion and faith was the third most prominent one in the world, overtaking Buddhism and Hinduism. Do you think religion is dying out? In the USA, firm believers are slowly replaced with uncertain ones, and in Europe atheism and nonbelief peak to such a degree that religious believers are now a tiny minority in some countries like Norway, Estonia or the Czech Republic. Do you think religion is in a decline? Have you perceived a change over the years?

    The tendency I perceived was that the amount of people who include religion in their daily lives falls in the first world, especially in Europe. US statistics show the start of a fall, while EU statistics interpret the middle.

    The claim that Europe is becoming more religious is unfounded. Churches are Empty, and the % Muslims is <10% (UK even <5%) The fact that the most popular name in England is Mohamed tells you nothing. Well maybe that Muslims lack a bit of imagin

    Very true and expressed well, the thing is even though the world is less , is the world better , or is it declining in goodness over evil , the reality is there is no improvement but violence, and crimes against humanity.

    Religion has always been used as a power tool. Today however, money has take over it's place and is now number 1. A great combination though as can seen on all the Evangelical TV channels. Are you on the dark side or the good side!!! Hell or Heaven.

    Alienating others isn't in the spirit of Jesus. If you want people to respect your religious beliefs, start by respecting theirs and other people in general. Jesus loves Samaritans and Buddhists too.

    Peter you speak truth here about the negative problems of religion, I truly agree this has been a problem.

    Example a knife is a tool , to the good or to the bad, but what determine that is the users intentions, there is nothing wrong with the tool.

    All personal attacks will be reported so stop mentioning me personally. We know what's happened in the recent past regarding your constant personal references.

    Try looking at UN data in order to get a grip on reality.

    I think athiests are more afraid of believers than of God, for good reason. No we really aren't the same thing. We believers tend to do terrible things thinking we know God's will. Well we all can't know God's will and do terrible things.
