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…

Is the turbulent Middle East bringing Sunni and Shiite jihadis together, or driving them to war?sunnishiite169704160_0

Fifteen years ago this month, al Qaeda operatives executed two devastating, simultaneous car bomb attacks targeting the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. The attacks in East Africa killed 223 people, injured more than 4,000, and brought international infamy to al Qaeda — among other repercussions, they earned Osama bin Laden a place on the FBI’s Most Wanted list.

U.S. embassies are still targets for violent extremists today — as shown by the recent closure of 19 U.S. diplomatic outposts across the Middle East in response to intercepted communications from al Qaeda leaders — but the nature of the terrorist threat has evolved over time. The relationship between al Qaeda Central and its regional franchises has changed dramatically, and the relationship between Sunni and Shiite terrorists is changing as well. Read more…

The lack of U.S. public awareness about Islam and at the same time globalizing initiatives to ban criticism of Islam has contributed to the popularity of this evil religion. By the time the America wakes up it would be too late, Islam has spread all over the West like termite, which is eating its foundation of democracy in no time. [DID]
