Truth to Power

Now this is encouraging news: Youth abandoning church

Are We Becoming an Atheist Nation? 3 Reasons Young People Are Abandoning Religion

Chances are that if you are in your 20s or 30s, you are not hanging around a church.

Polling is now a highly sophisticated industry, and religious organizations are being fed some irrefutable numbers about what is happening among their constituents.

In a single generation, the Christian church dropout rate has increased fivefold. The Barna Group, a leading research organization focusing on the intersection of faith and culture, says 80 percent of the young people raised in a church will be “disengaged” before they are 30.

In the past 20 years, the number of American people who say they have no religion has doubled and has now reached 15 percent. Those numbers are concentrated in the under-30 population. The polling data continues to show that a dramatic exit is taking place from American Christian churches.</em>

The sooner our planet evolves past its anti-choice, anti-thought “belief” system, the better off we’ll be. Harsh? Imagine, as John said, no heaven, but rephrase it.

Imagine that tonight, as they sleep, all memories, feelings, beliefs, experiences and teachings of religion were wiped clean from peoples minds. What do you think that would lead to…world-wide chaos…or calm?
