And you have an irrelevant list Art.

The facts are clearly on the side of atheism. That's why every time people are polled there are a larger percentage claiming no affiliation or atheist.

Why America’s ‘nones’ left religion behind

By Michael Lipka

Perhaps the most striking trend in American religion in recent years has been the growing percentage of adults who do not identify with a religious group. And the vast majority of these religious “nones” (78%) say they were raised as a member of a particular religion before shedding their religious identity in adulthood.

As part of a new survey connected to our broader Religious Landscape Study, we asked these people to explain, in their own words, why they no longer identify with a religious group. This resulted in hundreds of different responses (after all, everyone’s religious experience is a bit different), but many of them shared one of a few common themes.

About half of current religious “nones” who were raised in a religion (49%) indicate that a lack of belief led them to move away from religion. This includes many respondents who mention “science” as the reason they do not believe in religious teachings, including one who said “I’m a scientist now, and I don’t believe in miracles.” Others reference “common sense,” “logic” or a “lack of evidence” – or simply say they do not believe in God.

https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2015/11/03/454063182/poll-finds-americans-especially-millennials-moving-away-from-religion
Religion is apparently weakening in America. A new report from the Pew Research Center shows that the percentage of Americans who say they believe in God, pray daily and attend church regularly is declining.

Among the findings:

The share of Americans who say they are "absolutely certain" that God exists has dropped 8 percentage points, from 71 percent to 63 percent, since 2007, when the last comparable study was made.

The percentage of adults who describe themselves as "religiously affiliated" has shrunk 6 points since 2007, from 83 percent to 77 percent.

The shares of the U.S. adult population who consider religion "very important" to them, pray daily and attend services at least once a month have declined between 3 and 4 percentage points over the past eight years.

The shift is small but statistically significant, according to the authors, given that the changes have taken place in a relatively short period of time, and the survey sample is large enough (about 35,000 U.S. adults) to be considered reliable.

https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/our-changing-culture/201505/the-real-reason-religion-is-declining-in-america
The analyses, published this month in the journal PlosOne, reveal a seismic generational shift in religious commitment. Twice as many high school seniors, and 3 times as many college students, described their religion as “none” in the 2010s (vs. the early 1980s). Even among 8th and 10th graders, who have only been surveyed since the early 1990s, 40% to 50% fewer now affiliate with a religion.

Some older studies concluded that just as many Americans were attending religious services and describing themselves as religious, concluding that changes in religious involvement among young people were weak or slight. That no longer appears to be the case. Twice as many 12th graders and college students in the 2010s (vs. the 1970s) said they never attend religious services. 75% more 12th graders said that religion was “not important at all” in their lives. The figures in the paper show these large changes that accelerated just in the last few years -- things are changing, fast.

http://news.gallup.com/poll/200186/five-key-findings-religion.aspx

Almost eight in 10 identify with a religion, mostly Christian
21% have no religious identity, up from 15% in 2008
Over seven in 10 say religion is losing its influence in U.S. society

PRINCETON, N.J. -- Religion remains an integral part of most Americans' lives, but Gallup's ongoing research shows how this has changed over time. The following are five important findings about religion in the U.S.:

1. America remains a largely Christian nation, although less so than in the past. Seventy-four percent of Americans identify with a Christian religion, and 5% identify with a non-Christian religion. The rest of the U.S. adult population, about 21%, either say they don't have a formal religious identity or don't give a response.

The dominance of Christianity in the U.S. is not new, but it has changed over time. The U.S. has seen an increase in those with no formal religious identity (sometimes called "nones") and a related decrease in those identifying with a Christian religion. Since 2008, when Gallup began tracking religion on its daily survey, the "nones" have increased by six percentage points, while those identifying as Christian have decreased by six points. The 5% who identify with a non-Christian religion has stayed constant.

In the late 1940s and 1950s, when Gallup began regularly measuring religious identity, over nine in 10 American adults identified as Christian -- either Protestant or Catholic -- with most of the rest saying they were Jewish.

2. The trend away from formal religion continues. The most significant trend in Americans' religiosity in recent decades has been the growing shift away from formal or official religion. About one in five U.S. adults (21%) don't have a formal religious identity. This represents a major change from the late 1940s and 1950s when only 2% to 3% of Americans did not report a formal religious identity when asked about it in Gallup surveys. The increase in those claiming no religious identity began in the 1970s, with the percentage crossing the 10% threshold in 1990 and climbing into the teens in the 2000s.

---------------------------------------

So while there may be a few atheists converting to some form of theism, the trend away from religion is greater and makes your list irrelevant.

Thank you once again for your tireless efforts in convincing people that it takes a special of mindset to be a theist and that mindset is not one that people are embracing. Every year more people move away from religion in this country and in Europe. It may take a while for the majority to become Atheist, but the trend is there and shows no sign of stopping. Christianity has had 2000 years but I doubt it will take 2000 more to get a majority of people to leave their religious beliefs or, in the case of younger people to never adopt them.
With the internet making so much information available and all the arguments for God being so completely and utterly nonsensical the move to a secular majority won't take that long.

I suggest ethical behavior, so that when Anubis weighs your heart against the

Atheists who convert are extremely rare, because there is just too
much to un-learn.

Fundies don't have a word for the kind of Christian they used to be
before they were born again, and they imagine that the Christian
misrepresentation of atheists is accurate so that's what they
describe.

They always give themselves away, because what they claim convinced
them, rests on presumptions that only Christians have.

It's like the Muslim who claims he was a Christian until he read the
Koran and realised Mohammed was Allah's prophet - he already had to
have enough Muslim beliefs for that.

In 70 years, I have encountered precisely two genuine ex-atheists and
heard of a handful of others. One on the net and one in the meat
world.

These actually understood what it means to an atheist, to be one, and
they didn't insult the intelligence with Christian bullshit.

Score another one for Madjoe.

You are so blissfully unaware of how much you are doing to convince people that theism is not only nonsensical but harmful and creates a kind of emotional and psychological harm that since it can be avoided, should be avoided.

Please continue demonstrating how intellectually and morally bankrupt theists are so that the day when atheists outnumber theists will be hastened.

Good Job.

If they convert, they aren't atheists. If the realize that they are atheist,
conversion is totally unnecessary. Stop trying to turn us into Christians.
Isn't 20 years of failure enough. People have been laughing at you for two decades.

Rather than list all the many lists of atheists, I found two pages that list the lists. Makes things a lot simpler.
The issue is converts. YOU CAN'T READ.
Then where did people come up with their lists, if the names were not converts?

No, it's people who leave one group to join another. People don't convert to atheism. They simply realize that they aren't religion believers anymore.

simply realize that they aren't religion
believers anymore.
It took me a long time to finally realize
that. But why would they foolishly and
illogically come to the conclusion that
"there is no God".

I'm still trying to figure that one out,
because all of the evidence points to
the very opposite.

If all religions have serious issues,
would that mean "there is no God"?

Absolutely not, so how could they
possibly be so foolish?

Seriously!

You refuse to read the books we read or listen to the atheist debators for research. If you refuse to study our viewpoint, you'll never understand.

I've read biographies of different kinds of Christians who became
atheists. They all went through a very hard time overcoming their fears, learning real science and history, accepting that most of Christianity
is superstition, magic and mythology. In many cases it took years and
ended with the loss of family members and friends who refused to accept
their deconversions. It was very painful for them, but they had to be
honest with themselves.

It was easier for me, since I didn't tell anyone. I had been reading
history, religion, mythology and fairy tales seriously from when I
was 10 years old. When I was 11, I was horrified by the idea of not
believing in the Jewish god. When I was 12, I realized I was an atheist.
I didn't even know the word for it until I was 13. I was thrilled to
know it. It meant that I wasn't the only one. There were hardly any
books on atheism back then (1960). There are tons now on atheism,
agnosticism, humanism, Free Thought and Skepticism. If you really want
to lean why people become atheists, you have to read books by atheists,
not creationists who hate us and lie about us. If you only read books by
bigoted Christians, you'll never learn the truth about atheists and atheism.

You'll have to study as many religions as you can. Eventually, you'll see that there are a lot of similarities in nearly all of them. Ideas that religions
claim to have created existed before their were any big religions. They're
just common ideas to all humans that became incorporated into their religions.

And, if you study mythology, you'll notice that many of the stories and
people also got rewritten so they could be incorporated into religions.
Gods and goddesses from various ancient religions ping-ponged from one
religion (mythology) to another with changed names and locations. The
Noah's Ark story goes all the way back to Sumer in a different form. Anf,
stories about mothers setting their babies adrift to save their lives are
a dime a dozen.

I've written more than I meant to, but what it comes down to is you have to do a lot of research and make up your own mind. If it doesn't happen, it doesn't.
Everyone as an individual reaches their own conclusions.

All atheism is is a lack of belief in a god or gods. That's what the word
means. a=without. Atheism means without theism (no gods). Related to this is
theism- a belief in one or more gods and deism-a belief in one god that
created the Universe and then split the scene.

I've written more than I meant to,
I appreciate it.
Post by hypatiab7
but what it comes down to is you have to do a lot of research and make
up your own mind.
That's what everyone must do, and they must be honest with themselves.

If it doesn't happen, it doesn't.
So you are free from the shackles and fears of --> religions.
Do you now understand why there are so many idiots in US?

I thought that atheism meant that you believed there was no God.
There is no pixie.
Post by Andrew
But according to your testimony, it has to do with your aversion
to religions.
Religion sucks, and it is conning money from the suckers.

You'll have to study as many religions as you can. Eventually, you'll see that there are a lot of similarities in nearly all of them. Ideas that religions
claim to have created existed before their were any big religions. They're
just common ideas to all humans that became incorporated into their religions.
While the fundies are eager to have christianity taught in the public
schools, they do _not_ like the idea of comparative religion being
taught there one little bit.

Wonder why that is . . . .

I think it was true in the 19th, and in part of the 20th century.

That was a different era. Since then we have devolved - a lot.

If all religions have serious issues,
would that mean "there is no God"?
I evaluate the existence of gods on a case-by-case basis.

The god cannot exist who is both:

1) Omniscient
2) Regrets making Saul king of Israel

Heh. There are many unfortunate implications of Andrew's God's alleged omniscience
that Andrew flatly refuses to discuss.

Another day another successful recruitment of new atheists who have seen the evidence of the brain damage of people like you and all the other fundies who refuse to deny their beliefs are nonsense and contradictory bullshit.

You idiots never grasp that an omnipotent god would have not just picked some wide spot in the road to reveal himself after humans had existed for at least 100,000 years but evidence of religious belief only goes back about 40,000 years. An omnipotent God would tell everybody, not just a few goat herders in the middle east.

You also can't seem to grasp how unoriginal your faith is and how much of it is derived from previous religions.

You can't answer why an omnipotent God would not have penned his rules himself and made them understandable to all. Divine inspiration is code for we ain't got shit in the way of evidence so we'll just make it up.

Well with all that patience and learning you shouldn't have any problem providing evidence to back up your claim that your prayers have been answered.

Let me guess: you lost your car keys, prayed to god that they would turn up, then found them between the couch pillows three days later. Well, mr. logic, that ain't proof of the power of prayer. It just shows that you're gullible.

I had a neighbour who was a devout Catholic. She always prayed for world peace. Why is your god failing to answer this prayer? Why is he concerned about your car keys , yet doesn't appear to give a flying fuck about starvation, genocide, and priests who rape children?

If your god is real, then he's really a bum.

Theists do not bother what is not their business....
When their churches and evil organizations need new recruits to give tithes, that is when they tell you pixie is real!

Every single religious person is a former atheist.
Religious believs are not hard- wired into a newborn,
they are result of education and ( social) environment.
And what do you want to say with this list:
most former atheist convert to one of those religions
that got it all wrong.

You forgot the main thing that creates a theist. The one single thing
that is required for a person to be able to have the religious beliefs
and desire to worship invisible magical fairies they do. That one
thing is a complete and utter stupidity of the real world, how basic
actions are preformed without the need for magic and fairy tales.
