Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

(CNN)-- Three Dutch teenagers have been charged with murder after the death of a volunteer soccer official on Monday.
Linesman Richard Nieuwenhuizen died after being beaten up by players following a match the previous day and now two 15-year-olds and one 16-year-old have been arrested by Dutch police.
Nieuwenhuizen was pronounced dead at 5.30 p.m. local time on Monday in the hospital of Nieuwegein, according to his club Buitenboys.

Europe lawlessness seems to be evident in the recent killing of a soccer official by Dutch teens. I have always believed that soccer is a Neanderthal sport in Europe. Soccer fans have been known to run over the top of each other. Often resulting in people being killed by a stampede heard mentality.

Now soccer athletes have targeted a volunteer soccer official and beat him to death. Civility at its best wouldn’t you say? Don’t get me wrong America has its problems too. But our sports fans don’t run over each other and the athletes don’t kill the officials.

The Netherlands has one of the highest rates of Atheism in Europe. I’m not saying these teens who did this were atheist because I don’t know. It just seems this country has a history of violent and uncontrolled hoodlums. Remember this name, Joran van der Sloot?

Joran should have been hanged for all the lies he told about the death of Natalee Holloway. This piece of garbage ended up beating to death another women and is serving time for it.
I hope at some point and time he is sent to the US to stand trial. If he is found guilty he will get a taste of what a real prison is like.

Europe needs to get a hold on its lawlessness. I think they need to borrow some of the UK’s cops. Those bastards will teach the uncivilized Dutch population how to behave.

Ah right to the US lawlessness of people like James Holmes doesn’t count – right?

The fact that although the murder rate in New York is declining that city alone averages almost 500 homicides a year doesn’t count – right?

Jovan Belcher is not really a role model of the perfect sportsman, so he doesn’t count right?

The portion you cited from Wikipedia, came from here: http://www.christianpost.com/news/christian-p...
The same Christian news source that I cited from, in which you said:
1 - media, not a reliable source.
As far as the "blog" source I gave(From a Presbyterian Minister), I added it only to support the numerous other sources I gave, Christian in origin which agreed that Christianity is declining.
It is declining in the west, rapidly, and experiencing some growth in third world countries.
Nevertheless, it is on a decline.
I quoted direct from Wikipedia.

It just burns you up inside knowing that the Christian population is growing at a faster rate than the world population, huh?

So what you're pointing out is that your religion has turned the conceptual "temple" of the Jesus, into a market place, full of buyers, sellers, thieves and other that use that "temple" for financial gain, and not for worship.
Pretty much everyone, regardless of religious affiliation, buys Christmas presents. Don't you?

Evidence please, just making a statement does not make it true
From everything I have read on the subject, from people who are fairly high up in the church hierarchy and from the radio and TV news christrianity is in decline in comparison to world population.
In 2010, there were 2.30 billion Christians in the world, an increase of 300 million from two billion in 2005. The increase in the Christian population was at a slightly higher rate than that of the world population, 1.3 percent per year, when the total world population increased by 1.2 percent per year.
