Lets see I quoted the CIA (The United States of America's Central Intelligent agency).<quoted text>The most recent worldwide study comes from WIN-Gallup International:
It also has the the best historical data for evaluating recent trends because the polls were conducted in the same way across the globe and in two studies seven years apart. The table on page 12 shows the trends in the 39 countries that were surveyed in both "waves." Those countries, on the average experience a 9% drop in religiosity from 77% to 68%(Table 3). In those same countries, atheism nearly doubled from 4% to 7%(Table 4). Religiosity correlated negatively to both education and income (table 5).
The statistics cited by KJV have several problems. For one thing, much of the data is quite old and for another, there is not sufficient consistency in the way the data was collected an analyzed to use the data together with any validity. Some of the data has no accompanying metadata, so its origins have to be inferred, perhaps incorrectly.
The WIN-Gallup studies suffer from none of these flaws, and it is clear that religion is still declining while irreligion and atheism rise. The picture that KJV paints with his cherry-picked data is clearly wrong.
Then I quoted: "Encyclopedia Britannica". Ya real bad source here. LOL
Then it was: "Pew Research Center"
Yes sir looks like I'm trying to slip one past you!
You've got to be kidding me?
