It doesn't seem like it though, with all the brain dead
morons in the USA spreading their horseshit all over.

All the hubbub is caused by religious right wingers who believe
they had control of everything due to their religious beliefs.
They never really did. Their rulers, ministers and bosses did.
But, they hate the ideas of womens' rights, civil rights and
education for all. This is because the small bits of unearned
control they did have are being taken away from them. The poor
babies are going to have to grow up and learn how to share and
work with each other.

In other developed counties, religion is often largely just part of
the cultural tradition.

American-style fundamentalism and science denial is largely the
province of third world Islamic hell-holes.

Watching Religion Die
SEPTEMBER 14, 2020


The number of Americans who say their
religion is "none" began to explode in
the 1990s – rising to one-tenth of the
population, then climbing relentlessly
to one-fourth. Among those under thirty,
"nones" now are forty percent.

American church membership fell twenty
percent in the past two decades, according
to Gallup research. Southern Baptists
dropped two million members since 2005.

Tall-steeple Protestant "mainline"
denominations have suffered worst. United
Methodists fell from 11 million in 1969 to
below 7 million today – while America’s
population almost doubled. Evangelical
Lutherans dropped from 5.3 million in 1987
to 3.4 million now. The Presbyterian Church
USA had 3.2 million in 1982 but now is around
1.3 million. The Episcopal Church went from
3.4 million in the 1960s to 1.7 million now.

These highbrow mainline faiths with seminary-
educated ministers once drew public respect.
But religion is shifting to lowbrow, emotional
worship that is less admirable. One-fourth of
the world’s Christians now "speak in tongues,"
researchers say. Christianity is moving from
advanced, prosperous, northern nations to the
less-developed tropics. It’s going from
respected to pathetic.

Retreat of churchgoing in America may undercut
the Republican Party, which depends on white
evangelicals as the heart of its base. In
contrast, godless Americans tend to be
compassionate progressives who have become the
largest faith segment in the Democratic Party.
The loss of religion may shift national political
values to the left.

..in a thousand years, people will look back at religious nonsense and
say "holy shit, what the fuck were they thinking ??!" Let's hope that
advanced aliens never visit us. They'd die from laughter before we
could even talk to them !
