Good thought that leads to an open field. Regardless of how this topic is touched in here, I can see that my 5 children are by far more globally aware and free to communicate in what ever language they so wish through the translation software available for a price or free. They know the time difference, currency exchange unfairness, tax differences, environmental policy histories, gender issues, bent and corrupt media, toxin free living, preventative health care, alternative health care, applied anthropology... so yes, through the Internet, they are finding this world a bit different than what religious generations had when they had no access to the Internet. My kids are quite a spicy critique of organized religions that segregated us for too---- lo------ng. I do not tell them what is right about Chi, Ki, energy and spirituality. In some ways, they possess the same elements as Atheists. 

 

One day my kids asked me, "mom, why do we call a particular place 'holy land' and kill so many people over it. isn't life more holy than the fight over the land?"

 

On another day I was asked, "why are spiritual practice to worship animals and nature disappearing? isn't nature more important than some human greed?"

 

My answer is this,

"Travel well, speak many languages, harvest many food, fish in many seas, care for other youth and seniors, offer kindness small but frequent, respect balance and take only what you need, never assume your perspective to be the only, study history and the reasons why it was recorded, be mindful of what you store, listen, eat, touch and accept, be mindful and build awareness inside yourself. Blessings and joy is just a perception, so is your past, present and future and can be changed at your free will." 

 

Then decide where your preferences and ideals are. Life is a big colorful thick book so if you decide to live in one city or one country your entire life, it is the same as reading the same page your entire life. Don't be afraid to lose yourself to find yourself.

Maybe more people are atheist than they will admit to and the internet provides a degree of anonymity needed to speak ones mind.
