    It is as it has always been, a more educated citizenry results in a less religious citizenry. Keep them stupid and they will believe anything.

    yawn.

    I would say its decline is to do with its increasing irrelevance in the light of modern science. Also its inability to adhere to basic moral and ethical standards.

    ATHEIST MC…………………………

    you’re correct on both points.

    did you know that almost every religion (( and/or culture )) has, as a piece

    of general knowledge, some form of the ”golden rule ?”

    true.

    and yet, even as broadly recognized as this simple idea is, do you see it

    being followed ?? nope.

    my own feeling is that if humans cannot see the wisdom in this little idea,

    they sure as hell have no basis for expanded ethical examination.

    religions mostly generate a cacaphony of nonsense and baloney that you would

    imagine might create questions for even the most modest intellect…………….

    and as these questions arise, the veracity of belief is again and again

    called into question……….and thus the structure weakens……….and,

    we hope, will fall.
