In a previous post
, I asked if religion was
inevitable in the development of the human race. The consensus was basically yes (thanks to everyone who replied).
the demise of religion inevitable? I would argue (and hope), yes. The evidence shows a rise of secularism in Western Europe, Japan, Australia, and slowly but surely in the US. I believe as education, scientific advancements, and communications (like A/N) grow, non-theism will become more and more prevalent over the long haul.
By the long haul I mean it took a couple of thousand years to get where we are with religion and it may take as long to marginalize it. Is its demise inevitable?
