Agnosticism growing in America
The population of “nones”—atheists, agnostics and others unaffiliated with religion—is on the rise in the United States.
In the past several decades, the number of nonreligious Americans has mushroomed. Sometimes called atheists and sometimes untheists, this group now comprises about a quarter of the population. That’s tens of millions of people, especially represented by millennials. Thus you can expect the numbers to expand in the near future.
Although Christians still make up roughly three-fourths of the population, their percentage has been steadily declining. Even with the slide, however, Christianity still deeply influences American culture in myriad, sometimes damaging ways.
It’s Time to Talk
The time is now to talk about whether religion makes rational sense. To believe requires accepting supernatural beings in a world that science demonstrates is completely material. Without external corroborative evidence, God remains marooned in the human mind, and only there.
The Apostate Apostle
Welcome to my website and blog, The Apostate Apostle. Here you’ll find posts about the struggle in America between rational principles of religious doubt and belief in the supernatural. I’ll detail the many reasons it is essential to think critically about both stubborn belief that has crossed centuries and the unbelief that is on the rise.
I hope you enjoy and are enlightened by what you find here.
