Theism isn't edgy or amazing, it's dying out worldwide.

Atheism is not dying out. In Western countries the proportion of atheists is actually increasing. But the population explosion in black, south sahara Africa is reducing the proportion of atheism on the global level.

Better muslim than atheist? :shock:

Are you sure Andy? :roll:

PS. Demographics of atheism

Unfortunately dogmatism isn't dying out.

I've seen that sentiment expressed by various European clergy.

Less so now after a few throat slittings, but the Church of England still seems to think that way even now.

Atheists are morally superior to Abrahamic cultists, statistically speaking. Atheists have the lowest crime rates across the board and tend to be much more independent, anti-authoritarian in a live and let-live sense, and freedom-appreciative. Neopagans are the second least likely to commit crimes for much the same reasons.

Is Rodney Stark your argument? :lol:

Please in give your arguments in your own words, please. ;)

Waiting...

PS. Perhaps that all religions that I know ban contraception, but there are converts from religion to no religion too. But is this in balance. ;)
PPS. How about the scientists, how religious they are?
