    most developed countries barring few are seeing more and more people becoming less religious and turning towards agnoticism...do you think future is agnoticism?

      I think that as the Internet puts information and communication in the hands of more and more people, less and less of them will be inclined to lives in servitude to dogma. 

      Let's face it, religion has failed miserably.  None of them have been able to unite anyone or bring lasting peace anywhere. I think for the most part religion is dangerous in a modern world, so the less of it the better, imo.

      I think you mean Agnosticism. Do you? If yes, please correct the spelling.

      There is no future for the Agnosticism; it is a state of doubt which will be short lived only; it is a transient stage. Its only usefulness is that it will swallow up the myth of some religions like Trinity of Christianity and Jesus being god or son of god. This way it will pave way for the truthful and peaceful Quran/Islam/Muhammad as revived by the Promised Messiah 1835-1908.

      The future of humanity lays with the Ahmadiyya- the truthful and peaceful Islam

      Thanks

      I am an Ahmadi peaceful Muslim

        Thanks for correcting me on my spelling...

        coming to your point...temporary future might be into one religion or another...i dont doubt that...but religion can never be permanent destination for humans...humans are too old a species and present religions are too young concepts...we dont know what people believed in say some 12k years ago...so logically the present religions would become extinct by another 5k years...

        finally destination is beyond religions...

        yes if you ask me about my choice if religion is the way out..i would rank buddhism ,followed by vedanta , followed by ahmadi...so i wont mind ahmadi being the future but i would prefer religions to go for ever as foremost choice ...

          I told here that confusion and doubt is personified in Atheism Skepticism and Agnosticism. Confusion and doubt don't lead one anywhere; one can only reach the destination with CERTAINTY.

            well human thoughts work in that fashion my friend...i understand that you believe your religion has come from some external being...but as per me it evolved with human evolution..the destination it reached is not final though many religious people believe that is the case...why many people are getting confused with religion?...because it can't answer everything ...though it claims it does...slowly as humans start knowing new new things about universe..present set of religions would soon become stories with good intent...agnosticism is not doubt...it is next level...

    Atheism is actually growing at a much stronger rate than Agnosticism. I say this simply because more and more people are denying gods existence, rather than simply saying it cannot be proven. 

    The number of Aagnostics who practice other spiritual beliefs tends to remain stable.
