Lately number of people from europe origin not believing in god and religion have been increasing in europe...While Islam as religion too is seeing huge increase in number...do u see christianity as being in dying phase in europe?
In other words, Muslims are exiting the ME in droves in order to escape their lives there and try to make better ones in Europe?
Christianity is dying anyways, regardless of what's going on there.
I do think that Christianity is fading away in Europe. Just look at countries like Sweden and Norway, which are largely atheist or marginally Christian. It will be interesting to see how Europe looks like in ten years.
Not to ruffle feathers here, but I think the growing Muslim population in Europe is responsible for the decline of Christianity because the ardent adherence to religious practices by the muslims is a daily reminder of the historical nature of Christianity. It gives Christians reasons to pause and reflect. It showcases the foolish nature of religion and the dangers of giving it too much power.
I believe if we had as high a Muslim population here in the states you'd see the same results. The most visible immigrant population here is historically Roman Catholic. Somewhat different from the indigenous protestant majority, but the faith is similar enough to not cause waves.
But the Muslim population is growing here in the States every day. Greg
Unfortunately... All the world needs is another nation, poisoned by blind arrogance.
They rape, murder and stone the heathen non-believers.
hmmm....may be with affluence they would change....before industrial revolution Christians where bit similar...witch hunting and all...wasnt it?
Very much the same, though there are still witch burnings, by christians, in Africa.
MM, you are generalizing. Not all muslims are like that, just like not all christians go around protesting funerals, etc. The KKK consider themselves christian, or at least religious, look at the the the things they have done, and still do. Greg
I didn't say all, I was pointing out an unfortunate truth. You can't call something pure, where there are people involved. In trying to protect the purity of the system, many resort to force and violence.
MM, you said "they". That means you were insinuating all of them. Greg
They the guilty, not they the innocent. please excuse any miscommunication. I've met plenty of the "pure land" religious folk and I find them very enlightened. It is those that are unable or unwilling to digress or live aside from the idealism, in it's most clouded form that are zealotous in their pursuits. To enforce a decree to the utmost, in a viloent manner, it is they I spake of and no other.
Not to the extent in Europe. I've heard that 50% of residents in France are Muslim (when you take into account the children who are citizens and their parents who are not).
It is in our nature to fear the largest minority. Stand in any city in America, look at the largest minority, and you'll find the most hatred by the locals for that particular group. Muslims aren't a large enough minority to gain attention. Imo.
When they are, religion will be reviewed and it wil affect the religious. I personally think people will be inclined to be less openly religious from the back lash
the virgins in paradise thing is an attractive selling point, I gotta admit

Some people like to comfort themselves with the idea that if they get rid rid of horrible-old Christianity from the world, we will be left with nice, peaceful nihilism. I would like to point out that if you trample away Christianity, we won't be left with the unity of blissful non-belief, we will...

Christianity has shifted from its concentration in Europe and America to spread to Asia and Africa according to the Pew Research Center. It used to be that 93% of Christians could be found in Europe (66.3%) and the Americas (27.1%) Now, that 93% is split up among the four corners of the...

So tell me PT, are you the only person you know that thinks about this situation as you do? The situation of prophecy concerning Islam and the West, I mean. (from the other thread). You have quoted 1 atheist that does, but are you of a group that believes along these lines and is making it...

It is my contention that the Christian religion (and specifically following Christ) is guaranteed to cause conflict, wars and ill will.As proof - I cite the last 1800 years - including the hubpages forums as evidence. Not only are these forums littered with arguments between atheists and believers,...
