Religion will be driven toward extinction in 9 countries, experts predict

(By Richard Allen Greene, CNN, March 23, 2011)

Religion will all but vanish eventually from nine Western-style democracies, a team of mathematicians predict in a new paper based on census data stretching back 100 years.

It won't die out completely, but "religion will be driven toward extinction" in countries including Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the Netherlands, they say.

The mathematicians say it will also wither away in Austria, the Czech Republic, Finland and Switzerland.

They can't make a prediction about the United States because the U.S. census doesn't ask about religion, lead author Daniel Abrams told CNN.

But nine other countries provide enough data for detailed mathematical modelling, he said.

"If you look at the data, 'unaffiliated' is the fastest-growing group" in those countries, Abrams said.

The Bible teaches us the following.

Acts 5:39. But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God.

Matthew 16:18. And I also say unto thee, Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

For a better understanding of the translation of the word 'Petra - Rock' and 'Petros -Stone' in the Bible we invite you to read the article Church and what it means listed on this website.

1 John 5:4. For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world.

The believers know that the Bible is truth and there is no lie in it. They further will attest that this whole has been deceived (Rev. 12:9) and that through religion the spirit of this world has transformed itself into an angel of light and the religious leaders have transformed themselves into the apostles of Christ (2 Cor. 11:13-15).

For a better understanding how this whole world has been deceived and why religion is driven to extinction, we invite you to read all the pages and articles of this website, especially the article John Meacham ~ Newsweek and our response to his article from two years ago 'The Decline and Fall of Christian America'.
