Science is investigating the origins of religious thinking.
You will notice, more and more, religious attacks aimed at neuroscience rather than just evolution. That is the reaction of those (religious) keeping up with scientific discovery.
Much like all other fields, the religious are threatened by the truths being uncovered.
It's another nail in the coffin, and they know it.

Hanna J., we are very glad to have you join.

This is where the core substance of atheism is: finding the reasons why the world is what it is, from the origins of the cosmos to the origins of humans and their thinking and behaviour.

Science and commonsense can prove it all, which is a great contrast to the 'goddidit' nonsense coming from the indoctrinated religionists.

Brian
Someone once told me that it was in the range of 30,000.
I'm afraid I can't site a ref. for that though.
I say engage the mighty google. That should get you nearer your answer.
