Yes, "real" Christians DIE every day...and are not being replaced by younger ones.
Face it, your numbers are decreasing.

Someday belief in imaginary parental figures/friends will be a thing of the past and Sanity will rule.

No, it means that younger people refuse to buy into the ridiculous scare tactics of Christianity. They look at the premiss behind Christianity and realize how truly insane the doctrine really is. There may be a lot wrong with the younger generation, but I give them credit for seeing the pathetic belief that Christianity really is, and rejecting it.

How Will The Shocking Decline Of Christianity In America Affect The Future Of This Nation?
By Michael, on January 18th, 2012
Is Christianity in decline in America? When you examine the cold, hard numbers it is simply not possible to come to any other conclusion. Over the past few decades, the percentage of Christians in America has been steadily declining. This has especially been true among young people. As you will see later in this article, there has been a mass exodus of teens and young adults out of U.S. churches. In addition, what “Christianity” means to American Christians today is often far different from what “Christianity” meant to their parents and their grandparents. Millions upon millions of Christians in the United States simply do not believe many of the fundamental principles of the Christian faith any longer. Without a doubt, America is becoming a less “Christian” nation. This has staggering implications for the future of this country. The United States was founded primarily by Christians that were seeking to escape religious persecution. For those early settlers, the Christian faith was the very center of their lives, and it deeply affected the laws that they made and the governmental structures that they established. So what is the future of America going to look like if we totally reject the principles that this nation was founded on?
So the kids don't believe (according to your post).

Why is that?

And how about answering the last question.

I think one of the biggest problems with the younger generation is that the majority of them don't believe in Jesus.

That's why they have no morals anymore. That's why teen pregnancy is higher than ever. That's why teen suicide is higher than ever. That's why there are more "gays" now than ever.

There IS a correlation between kids today & kids a few generations ago and their attitudes.

It's not looking good.

You are wrong on all counts, all of the time. It must be tiresome for you.

It certainly is for the rest of us.

Here are the principals that this Nation was founded on. I know it's not what you'r driving at, but these are the six principals.

Somehow you want your God in there, buts he's not. Yes there is the mention of a creator, but that could apply to anyones belief in a creator. Someone might take it to mean and advances race of Aliens. Someone else could see the creator as Shiva, or any number of creator Gods. You don't have the sole claim for a creator God.

The Constitution begins with an introduction, called the preamble. The rest of the document is split up into sections called articles. The first three articles talk about the three branches of government: judicial, legislative, and executive. Article IV talks about the relationship between the state and the national government. Article V talks about the process in which new amendments are to be made. Article VI talks about how the constitution is the ultimate law and Article VII talks about the ratification of the Constitution.

The Basic Principles

The Constitution is built upon the following six basic principles:

1. Popular Sovereignty

2. Limited Government

3. Separation of Powers

4. Checks and Balances

5. Judicial Review

6. Federalism

If you're asking what the future of America might be without a belief in God, then the answer is, our country may very well look a lot like Norway, Sweden, Iceland, New Zealand, or Denmark, all considered to be Atheistic countries. All have much lower crime rates than the U.S. Better education, less domestic violence. Compared to these countries American teens are 70% more likely to contract ATD. So it seems the further we move away from God the better off we are. Here hoping the trend among our young continues.

Why don't kids believe? I am in contact with a great many young people, college age. It would seem that they, unlike a few generation ago, want a rational and logical foundation for their beliefs. They are resistant to accepting something simply because an adult says so. They want something substantial, not "believe it because I say so." It's a very admiral stance on their part.

Consenting adult engaging in sex, whats the problem? The women are disease free, the men free to choose to have sex or not, whats the problem? I have a very high sense of morality, I haven't killed anyone lately, can your God say the same? I have never murdered little babies like your God, nor have I engaged in Genocide like your God. I'm actually more moral than the demon God you worship.

I am also a proud law abiding citizen of our society, and I don't even need the 10 commandments or a belief in a myth to be such.
