    Fully agree that most get it wrong. We’ll just have to wait and see if the others come to fruition.

    It will always be there. It may grow slowly but yes it will be there. But I do think the longer humans exist and the more advance in technology we see, I think in the further future generations religion will become less significant. when we explore and colonize different planets I see a recycling of primordial faiths along with the older religions. But I do see a dramatic shift in belief (this is just an educated guess) when we increase our knowledge in technology.

    Hey Moderators, is this thread a violation of the ban on preaching? Stating things definitively as fact that you haven't demonstrated with no intent to interact or discuss with other members?

    That comment was put in as an edit, after many of the first replies were not helpful.

    But now, Genuine replies have not been responded to as well.

    Regards Tony

    I see a push to discredit and do away with religion is well underway, but the time will come when man will realise they need help and will turn back and search religion to find out what it really said.

    When we reach that time, our unity as one human race will also be realised and the future will be magnificent.

    Until then we ride the storm and waves of discontent.

    Regards Tony

    According to the graph from 2010-2050 Islam will grow exponentially therefore by 2050 it will become 29.7% of the worlds population while Christianity will be 31%. The religiously unaffiliated will decline approximately around plus minus 3% (from 16.4 to 13.2). Buddhist shares a similar drop off as well as folk religions. But beyond that it may be hard to say considering the technological changes soon to come because with advanced technology there is an eventual change in the social dynamics on how we see the world. Therefore I think when we colonize other planets I believe religion/spirituality will play a part it'll just play a part differently than how we perceive today and that lack of religion or atheism will remain stagnant.
