New Study Shows Atheism is in World-Wide Decline

(By Kelly McDonald, Jr) Contrary to popular belief, Christianity is not dying out. A new study shows that Christians are having more children than atheists. In less developed countries, such as a Malasyia, the difference is significant, whereas in the United States the difference is less pronounced. In Malasyia, religious parent shave 1.5 more children on average than those that are not. In the US, non-religious parents averaged 3.04 children, but religious parents averaged 3.2.

 

 

Overall, the study found that religion correlates with higher fertility rates. This has several long-term impacts. Among them is that atheism is on the decline and will continue to be for some time. This also means that Christianity is on the increase. Islam has the highest fertility rates among world religions. In America, it seems that secularism is increasingly constantly due to the barrage of secular media, but this study proves that nothing could be farther from the truth.

  1. What does fertility rate have to do with religion. Children of Christian parents are not necessarily Christian. likewise the children of atheists are not necessarily atheists and the children of Islam parents are not necessarily Islamic. While children are often of the same faith as their parents, it is not necessarily so.

    So what? Most atheists are born to religious parents, not atheist ones. Atheists are not attempting to outbreed Christians or muslims- its not a contest. Fertility rates being higher among the religious is completely consistent with my expectations.

    What a joke. As the commenter above me has already pointed out, fertility rates among the religious being higher than that of “atheists”, or simply religious-none’s, doesn’t mean that Christianity is overcoming “secularism”. Somebody identifying as Christian doesn’t mean much of anything (as you know), where as if someone says they are atheists or none-religious, it most certainly does mean something.
