Hard Evidence: Is Christianity Dying in Britain? | The Conversation UK

Hard Evidence: Is Christianity Dying in Britain? | The Conversation UK.

An interesting piece at HuffPost UK, exploring what appears to be the collapse of religion in Britain.  Although there continues to be belief in the supernatural, in other words ‘No Religion’ isn’t the same as atheism, the article notes that those supernatural beliefs are “casual in the extreme”.  There is a similar trend in much of western and northern Europe.

Are we looking at what the U.S. might look like in a generation?  Our own ‘No Religion’ category has climbed from 8% in 1990 to around 20% today.

The decline of religion in western civilization is unprecedented in history.  It’s hard to predict how it might eventually pan out sociologically.  I’m not entirely sure the old religions won’t eventually be replaced by new ones, which would likely consider themselves to be post-religious.

    This is quite interesting. If the pattern continues to progress and more people discontinue labeling themselves into a certain religions, humanity would be able to work together possibly more diplomatically and learn to factor In Ancient wisdom, science, and global environmental issues…maybe, just maybe??
