That may be true in the west, but in the world it's a different story. The west has lower birthrates. Atheism and agnosticism survives by converting mainly the Christians in Europe and the U.S., but in Africa and almost all other parts of the world, they have higher birthrates, raising more religious people into the world. And moreover, the third world doesn't care about the atheism and agnosticism of the first world, because atheism and agnosticism as a force, doesn't do very much for people.<quoted text>
Yes, but, eventually, religious doctrine woild get weaker and weaker. Turning to religion is going te become harder and harder with each generation, because the indoctrination is not as severe as in the past.
What's more. Secular Humanism actively advocates tolerance, unlike modern religions where a warhungry god was worshipped many years ago and today its apologists try and twists the message to something more in line with humanism
If you look at Sai Baba's movement and how it was in India, building hospitals, building dams, and schools, who cares if what Sai Baba believed was wrong? Who cares about the atheists argument in the third world? He can be right or wrong, but no one cares because he doesn't do very much for people.
Secular humanism doesn't advocate tolerance. People advocate tolerance. One can very easily convince others that killing a few thousand of those red indians is in the best interest of millions of people.
Secular humanism sounds very good, but when one gets into the numbers and resources game, one realises it isn't worth very much. At times just a collection of unrealistic ideals that would work only in times of abundance.
And it's a dangerous game to play when you assert that the war stories of religion are the norm and the peace stories are just apologetics. You'll lose objectivity very quickly with that. There are Islamophobes in the world today who believe that a few thousand terrorists are the true muslims, and the rest of the 1.6 billion of us are apologists. That's statistically way off the mark.
