I am not a religious person but I see a trend these days toward elevating atheism to the status of a religion and — the atheists are doing this with real religious fervour — attacking the faith community and showing intolerance for anyone who sways from their leftist, atheistic beliefs.
Global atheism is shrinking and the Question evolution! campaign will accelerate the shrinkage
In 2012, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (GCTS) reported that every day there are 800 less atheists per day, 1,100 less non-religious (agnostic) people per day and 83,000 more people professing to be Christians per day (see: Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary - status of Global Mission report).
In 2011, the American Spectator wrote concerning research published in the International Bulletin of Missionary Research:
The report estimates about 80,000 new Christians every day, 79,000 new Muslims every day, and 300 fewer atheists every day. These atheists are presumably disproportionately represented in the West, while religion is thriving in the Global South, where charismatic Christianity is exploding.
(As a theologically conservative Protestant, I do understand that not everyone who proclaims themselves a Christian is a bona fide Christian in God's eyes and there are people who are deluded and/or false teachers. See: Matthew 7:23, Matthew 7: 14-15)
In the United States atheists are a tiny minority of the population and one of the most distrusted groups which certainly must aggravate and upset militant atheists. According to the atheist author Dr. Sam Harris the label of atheist is "right next to child molester as a designation." Oh that must hurt, Mr. Rude and Arrogant Atheist. In 2010, the The Telegraph ran a story with the byline "Professor Richard Dawkins is embroiled in a bitter online battle over plans to rid his popular internet forum for atheists of foul language, insults and 'frivolous gossip'." Even former militant atheists turned agnostic such as Richard Dawkins find the behavior of many atheists distasteful. Of course, Dawkins himself is not Mr. Cordiality, is he?
Of course, as the Question evolution! campaign continues to gain new fans and spread across the globe in 2012 these desperate rants of militant atheists crybabies may reach a feverish pitch. No doubt the Question evolution campaign will accelerate the shrinking of global atheism which will cause more atheist rants. I know it's hard atheists, but please don't cry because Creation Ministries International has ripped your Darwinism blankie away from you with their 15 questions that evolutionists cannot satisfactorily answer.
