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.

It talks about this report:
http://www.wingia.com/web/files/news/14/file/...
It rises in secularism and atheism both in the U.S and world wide over the last decade. As far as I know, it's the only study that collected its data the same way in every country that it polled. As such, it is also the only study with valid data to evaluate worldwide trends in religion.
Aw, how cute. You've found a fake company using the name "Gallup" to make them seem more believable...

Hint: That poll isn't a Gallup Poll...

LMAO!

Notice page 20? What kind of reputable polling company would use words like "age-wise", "education-wise" or "religious-wise"???

ROTFLMMFAO !!

You tried.

Of course the Catholic Church is Christian. Saying otherwise is just retarded and RR knows it.

In that case deem your link to be invalid or my point stands no matter how much you stomp your feet and wail.

No surprise really. We see all across the world people becoming less enchanted with religion. Even in Islam they are noticing this trend.

Yes we see atheists do wonderful things like this each and everyday. Please note she did this to assist little girls who had no hope and she is doing it for them, not some imagined heavenly reward.

Communist North Koreans are taught and believe that it's leaders are supernaural gods.

http://news.yahoo.com/5-strange-cultural-fact...

Founder Kim Il Sung was known as Korea's "sun," and claimed control of the weather.

Kim Jong Il's mythology is no less extensive. His birth was hailed as "heaven sent" by propagandists, and state media has often touted impossible feats: He scored a perfect 300 the first time he tried bowling, and shot five holes-in-one the first time he played golf. Upon his death in 2011, the skies about the sacred mountain Paektu in North Korea allegedly glowed red.

Kim Jong Un, Kim Jong Il's son and successor has yet to have quite so many tall tales told about him, but the news media have described the new leader as "born of heaven" upon his ascension to head of state. In December 2012, North Korean state media declared the discovery of a lair supposedly belonging to a unicorn ridden by Tongmyong, the ancient mythical founder of Korea.

Sorry theists, looks like you just lost another one :)

PYONGYANG (The Borowitz Report)In a move that has further ratcheted up tensions on the Korean peninsula, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un today moved his entire collection of Transformers action figures to the border with South Korea.

According to sources familiar with the size and scope of the collection, which is believed to be the largest in Asia, the mercurial Kim began assembling it when he was either eight or nine.

In Washington, an intelligence source reported that satellite photos have confirmed thousands of Transformers massing on the southern border:We are seeing no Autobots. Just tons and tons of Decepticons.

Kim himself confirmed the Transformers mobilization today on state television, announcing,I am Megatron, followed by an unintelligible roar.

The latest development in North Korea follows published reports that Kim Jong-un may be trying to obtain a light sabre.

I like Andy - He always puts a smile my face

PYONGYANG (The Borowitz Report)Saying that he could no longer keep up the punishing pace of sabre rattling seven days a week, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un said today that beginning this month he will take weekends off from vowing to incinerate the world.

After the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) released a revised April Threat Schedule showing that Kims declarations of war and doomsday ultimatums would be limited to Monday through Friday, North Koreas Supreme Leader explained his decision to make his weekends threat-free:Dad always told me that you have to pace yourself in this job. The biggest danger isnt the United Statesits burnout.

Kim said that he made his decision over the past weekend, after he issued his forty-ninth official statement threatening to engulf the mainland U.S. in a nuclear Armageddon:I was in the middle of saying infernal sea of fire, and I kind of realized, hey, Im just phoning it in. And I never want to be that guy.

By resting his violent rhetoric on weekends, Kim said,On Monday through Friday Ill have the insanity and unmitigated rage necessary to do this job right.

Referring to his streak of three hundred and fifty-two consecutive days in which he threatened to destroy the world, Kim said,Im proud of it, sure. But nothing lasts forever.

Kim began the month of April with a fresh round of threats, announcing today that North Korea had blocked South Korea on Pinterest.
