Plinius replied to jlaz's discussion 7.5 million people left religion since 2012: Three graphs from latest General Social Survey

Hi Josh, and welcome to this wonderful world of Internet atheism----a haven from the superstitious nonsense of the fictional god of the masses.

We invite you to make good friends by joining the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Astronomy, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Evolution, Darwin..." with its 400 discussion topics and 2400 members.
