Are the number of atheists growing as a percentage of the world's population?

Fingers crossed....

The planet is rabid/poisoned with religion of course. Ugh.
Thanks! Non-religious being???? is a question, but I want to count them as friends! LOL
At least our slice of the pie is visible to the naked eye.........if only we could rescue the throngs of cult followers!
In the US? Yes. Link "...nones" has now skyrocketed to between 30 percent and 40 percent among younger Americans."

The move to Evangelism between 2001 and 2004 was from 9 to 26%. The move occurred largely because of Bush and 9-11. But the youth can't accept the strict nature of Evangelicals and the absurd notions of Young Earth. So while the parents may find that they enjoy that style, it's driving the youth out. Our ability to talk openly and with facts online is a huge benefit as well. We can say, present your facts and I will present mine in front of lurkers, those whom aren't a part of the conversation, yet still have questions. Yeah us!
My scientific poll.....on a large dating site the number of men stating "non-religious" are the majority.
Yeah Canada!!! LOL
Imagine any time when it would be part of the voting poll. The outrage would never die down just about having that question asked!
We were always winning, we just didn't always know it. Sometimes we still don't know it, but we ARE winning. Just as the evolution of homo sapiens was an inevitable fact in the biological world (though homo erectus didn't know that), the evolution toward a world free of silly ancient superstitions is an inevitable fact. It is the patently obvious direction toward which a society must evolve socially. As we've seen in our own history, down the other path lies darkness, ignorance, and annihilation.

This is something that I like to "have faith" in :)
I agree with the overall sentiment there. We have come a long way over the past 300 years. We have further to go, though. The battle will be never-ending.
You sound like Twain a little there.

Mark. I haven't read much, if at all, of his works, either. But I was reading a variety of quotes taken from his work regarding views on life and death. They were mostly in the same, irreverent tone as your statement above.
Mark, of course! If you'd said "herp durp durpy durpdupr DURRRR" then you'd have sounded like Shania.
Why do I have the uncontrollable urge to say:

Good morning starshine
The earth says hello
You twinkle above us
We twinkle below

Good morning starshine
You lead us along
My love and me as we sing
Our early morning singing song

Gliddy gloop gloopy
Nibby nobby nooby
La la la lo lo
Sabba sibby sabba
Nooby abba dabba
Le le lo lo
dooby ooby walla
dooby abba dabba
Early morning singing song
