Atheists Outnumber Theists

Theism

Religions are the tools in the hands of the world’s 1% rich to put slavery chain on the necks of the people in order to abuse their human/civil rights and keep them under their control. In other word, the allegedly uplifting religion serves as a refuge for those whose rights, owing to poverty or powerlessness, are abused by powerful and rich people. Among religions, the primitive stone-age Islam is the mostly used gizmo for the powerful puppeteers to run their imbecilic puppets across the world. 

The reason for everyday increasing in number of non-religious people in the world is the fact that the new generation believes in critical thinking, they doubt accepting anything without a reason and a verification process. This is exactly the mandate of the atheism, while religion is the belief (submission without doubt) in and worship of a supernatural controlling power, which closes the door on any substantiation process.

The number of people who say they have no religion is rapidly escalating and significantly outweighs the Christian population in England and Wales, according to new analysis.

The proportion of the population who identify as having no religion – referred to as “nones” – reached 48.5% in 2014, almost double the figure of 25% in the 2011 census. Those who define themselves as Christian – Anglicans, Catholics and other denominations – made up 43.8% of the population.

“The striking thing is the clear sense of the growth of ‘no religion’ as a proportion of the population,” said Stephen Bullivant, senior lecturer in theology and ethics at St Mary’s Catholic University in Twickenham, who analysed data collected through British Social Attitudes surveys over three decades.

“The main driver is people who were brought up with some religion now saying they have no religion. What we’re seeing is an acceleration in the numbers of people not only not practising their faith on a regular basis, but not even ticking the box. The reason for that is the big question in the sociology of religion.” Read more…

Atheists and Islam, No God, not Even Allah

Ex-Muslim atheists are becoming more outspoken, but tolerance is still rare

A MOB attacked Alexander Aan even before an Indonesian court in June jailed him for two and a half years for “inciting religious hatred”. His crime was to write “God does not exist” on a Facebook group he had founded for atheists in Minang, a province of the world’s most populous Muslim nation. Like most non-believers in Islamic regions, he was brought up as a Muslim. And like many who profess godlessness openly, he has been punished.

In a handful of majority-Muslim countries atheists can live safely, if quietly; Turkey is one example, Lebanon another. None makes atheism a specific crime. But none gives atheists legal protection or recognition. Indonesia, for example, demands that people declare themselves as one of six religions; atheism and agnosticism do not count. Egypt’s draft constitution makes room for only three faiths: Christianity, Judaism and Islam. Read more…
