Census data, & math's model, show religion in 9 countries heading 4 extinction. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-12811197
Well not that we expect it will die quietly, however it's good news to see religion is slowly but surely on the way out, so when people say 'you will never rid the world of religion' -tell them to shut up & get outta the way of people actually doing something about advancing humanity & ridding these archaic, retarded & superstitious beliefs.
I have no doubt that religion will not go extinct. It may loose its hold on the majority, or so I hope, but it will never completely go away. As long as there is irrational thought there will be religion.
