<quoted text>See also: Global atheism and American atheism and Atheist Population and Resources for leaving atheism and becoming a Christian
In 2012, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary reported that globally every day there are 800 less atheists per day, 1,100 less non-religious (agnostic) people per day and 83,000 more people professing to be Christians per day.[42][43]
In 2011, the American Spectator citing research published in the International Bulletin of Missionary Research reported that atheism is on the decline as a whole in terms of adherents .[44][45]
The American Spectator declared:
“ The report estimates about 80,000 new Christians every day, 79,000 new Muslims every day, and 300 fewer atheists every day. These atheists are presumably disproportionately represented in the West, while religion is thriving in the Global South, where charismatic Christianity is exploding."[46]”
In 2009, the book A sceptics guide to atheism indicated: "A worldwide poll taken in 1991 put the global figure for atheists at just 4.4% of the population. By 2006 it was estimated that only 2% of the world population were atheists
If this is true, then you have nothing to fear, do you? Your crusade is over, you are no longer needed.

What the hell DO you do?
Apart from this, I am studying Spanish (hablé, he hablado, hablo, hablaré,), and learning and playing a lot of bridge. That is a difficult game.

I walk with Mrs. Aint every morning, and we are out and about on foot most days, usually meeting friends for meals or local events. Tonight, we will be dining at one of our newest restaurants with a couple that we know through bridge.

I belong to the bridge club and a local freethinkers club. On Sundays, we like to go to a series of talks on various subjects. Last week was about renewable energy, which was timely, since we just went all solar. Our carbon footprint might even be less than zero now, as we actually generate more power than we consume, all clean, and we give the excess to the Mexican government.

We go to a lot of art galleries and exhibitions of artists, and attend a lot of charity benefits, especially for animal shelters.

We like to take our black lab to the dog park three times a week to run her around and let her socialize with other dogs.

We frequently walk to a friend's B and B for Jeopardy, where we enjoy wine and shout out answers. The final Jeopardy last night was too easy. You only needed to know who famously said that he had nothing to declare but his genius. When not there, we like to go instead to one of two places on the lake where we can watch the sun set with a glass of wine.

Last month, we spent a week at a friend's condo in Mazatlan on the marina.

We watch about two hours of TV a night. Lately, it's been West Wing on DVD, which we never saw the first time around. Otherwise, it's usually comedy, movies, or HBO original programming.

We have no responsibilities, although my wife has a little business designing and hosting web pages.

No surprise there, Archie. I'm sure that you would hate my world.

Did I ever tell you that I spent an eternity in Riverside one year in the seventies? I was a student at Riverside City College that year, where I studied electronics and music. It was 1975, the year between my discharge from the Army and my return to university at Ohio State. That is one dead city.

I have a relatively new Jamaican friend here in Mexico, mon. I love the accent. He married a gal from Vermont, where they live several months a year. They couldn't be more unalike, but they seem to love one another. He's way more Americanized than I am. He's a mason ferkrissakes, and likes to handout at the local American Legion. Yikes! But otherwise, he be jammin'!

You think yours is?
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_of_Tripoli
The treaty was a routine diplomatic agreement but has attracted later attention because the English version included a clause about religion in the United States.
Professor of History John Fea, however, has recently noted in his book addressing the Christian element to the American founding that, "If the Treaty of Tripoli is correct...then someone forgot to tell the American people."
Many other historians, secular and religious, have further insisted on the relative unimportance of the document or argued against the position that it rules out the influences of religion on the Founders, the constitution, or American culture, at the time of the founding.
...the treaty was superseded, less than a decade later, by another 'Treaty of Peace and Amity,' signed in Tripoli June 4, 1805, in which the clause in question...is omitted.
That was much better. You should do that with any claim you make. At least I know that the ideas didn't come out of your ass, and I have a more clear statement to rebut.

Your citation says, "the treaty was superseded, less than a decade later, by another 'Treaty of Peace and Amity,' signed in Tripoli June 4, 1805, in which the clause in question...is omitted."

Now we're making progress. For starters, you had claimed that "the treaty was debunked & rewritten less than 10 years later," to which I replied that, "Treaties aren't debunked or rewritten. Once ratified, treaties are either honored or violated, They may be superceded, terminated, extended, and the like." I think that we clarified that issue. The treaty was superceded, which is different from rewriting it. And "debunked" is a charged and pejorative word that is inappropriate in this context.

Also, I think I see your argument, even though you still haven't stated it explicitly in a sentence or paragraph. I don't know why you resist that, but I'm thrilled to see a citation, so we'll not belabor that further at this time.

I think that you're saying that a renegotiated treaty that doesn't reaffirm that, "the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion" means that the words have been contradicted, or in some sense no longer mean what they once meant. Is that correct? Is that what you meant by "debunked"? If so, you used the word improperly.

If that is what you meant, I can begin to address that. If it's something else, just write what it is clearly, directly, and explicitly. Direct, expository language is an excellent tool for communicating ideas - perhaps the best.

I know that you think that I am deliberately being petty or contrary. But I need you to provide more than, "the treaty was debunked & rewritten less than 10 years later." What in hell does that mean? Treaties aren't debunked or rewritten.

Maybe that you think that the controversial sentence from the Treaty of Tripoli has somehow been invalidated. How could it be? It was an opinion, and the successor treaty didn't contradict it.

People like you also drive a Prius, so what do I care?
No. I drove an RX-7, then a BMW 325i, then a Miata. My wife drove a Durango. We brought the Durango to Mexico because we needed a higher, more rugged vehicle with cargo capacity, but we barely drive it. It's a 2001 with 48,000 miles on it. We gas up about every ten weeks.

But what is wrong with a Prius? Do you resent efforts to reduce carbon emissions because you associate it with yuppie liberals, whom you have been conditioned to dismiss? That's pretty poor thinking.

Actually, taking a position against environmentalism in the face of the current evidence is unconscionably unethical and epically stupid. I weep for posterity, and regret that my descendants that never meet me may think that I was like you, and didn't care about them or their world not to take precautions. You have no moral right to risk doing this to them:
http://roadtickle.com/the-worst-things-that-g...

And I blame your church in large part. It continually chips away at the nation's trust in and understanding of science and climate scientists. And it teaches you to think of "the world" as a bad place, where bad things are supposed to happen to man, where whatever happens is the will of a god that intends to destroy it all in conflagration anyway. Look at this amazingly repulsive comment:

“We don't have to protect the environment. The Second Coming is at hand”- James Watt, Secretary of the Interior under Reagan.

Secretary of the Interior. The highest officer in the land dedicated to safeguarding America's natural resources. An end times lunatic appointed by a president that you likely idolize.

We can't afford the luxury of this kind of stupidity much longer.

Dark matter is observable, but indirectly, like black holes (observable in this context means detectable, not visible). Both are known by their effects on ordinary matter.

If your god has any effect on reality, we'll find it. If it doesn't, the idea of it is meaningless.

Nobody has any burden to prove anything to anybody except he that wishes to change minds. If you're happy with the status quo, you have no burden.

On the other hand, if you have any desire to slow your church's descent into irrelevancy, you might want to speak up. I'd recommend sooner rather thanlater, as your numbers - and with it your voice - are fading fast.

"The Global North refers to the 57 countries with high human development that have a Human Development Index above .8 as reported in the United Nations Development Programme Report 2005. Most, but not all, of these countries are located in the Northern Hemisphere.

"The Global South refers to the countries of the rest of the world, most of which are located in the Southern Hemisphere. It includes both countries with medium human development (88 countries with an HDI less than .8 and greater than .5) and low human development (32 countries with an HDI of less than .5)."

How proud you must be! You are making inroads among the least successful nations that know the least about the history of Christianity, and which are populated with the least sophisticated most desperate people.

You are more successful proselytizing on Skid Row and Death Row than Restaurant Row because you do better with the desperate.

And you are more successful in rural America than in its metropolitan regions because you do better with the undereducated and unsophisticated.

Why bother? Who would benefit from it?

Skeptics already reject religion without such proof, so they wouldn't benefit from it. And you throwbacks don't do evidence. If there were a race of creator gods, and they appeared on earth tomorrow, you'd still cling to your superstitions as you lie curled in the fetal position screaming, "Get thee behind me, Satan!" at your actual creators.

So once again, why bother?
