1. What is the third upcoming wave of Christian backlash against the New Atheism? New Atheism is the latest incarnation of militant atheism.
2. Did the agnostic and former militant atheist Richard Dawkins recently endure his biggest public humiliation? Did New Atheism fail?
3. Can atheism endure 3 upcoming waves of attacks without suffering significant damage?
An atheist frets about Christian backlash to militant atheism
An April 17. 2011 atheist essay entitled Are atheists strengthening religion? declared:
The Christian backlash and response to new atheism is/was considerable, and neither can the consequences, changes, and foci which marked their response be ignored.
In the end, have we simply made the aforementioned goal more difficult to accomplish.
You can read about the first wave of Christian response to the New Atheism in our article: A larger wave of Christian backlash against atheism and Atheism post 2007
Militant atheism fails in the UK and in the world
First of all let me say that the New Atheism has been a unmitigated failure.
For example, recent telling defeats of Richard Dawkins are: the explosive growth of global Christianity/Christian creationism, the recent surge of web traffic of Creation.com, the global resurgence of religion, the recent plunging of web traffic of Richarddawkins.net and the projected loss of adherents of global atheism.
The stench of evolutionism and Richard Dawkins vs. the sweet smell of Jesus Christ - Jesus wins!
Global creationism vs. global Darwinism
But it gets worse! Much worse!
The former militant atheist and agnostic Richard Dawkins recently endured his most humiliating debate defeat to date. If you thought Dawkins' debate defeat against Rabbi Boteach was humiliating (the student audience said Boteach won the debate plus Dawkins tried to deny the videotaped debate ever occurred. Plus, to make matters worse Dawkins claimed that Rabbi shrieked like Adolf Hitler during the debate), you are going to love hearing about his most recent humbling.
Are you ready to hear about Richard Dawkins' most recent public humiliation?
Richard Dawkins loses a debate with the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Rowan Williams, at the University of Cambridge by a vote of 324 votes to 136 votes on whether or not religion should have a place in life in the 21st century. There you have it. The militant atheism of the New Atheism failed in England. And Britain is the birthplace of Darwinism!
The third wave of attack coming against militant atheism
In our article entitled The future of European Darwinism is bleak we cited scholarship indicating the future of Darwinism is dismal in Europe.
For example, Professor Eric Kaufman, who teaches at the University of London, Birbeck College, wrote concerning Europe in his paper entitled Shall the Righteous Inherit the Earth? Demography and Politics in the Twenty-First Century :
We have performed these unprecedented analyses on several cases. Austria offers us a window into what the future holds. Its census question on religious affiliation permits us to perform cohort component projections, which show the secular population plateauing by 2050, or as early as 2021 if secularism fails to attract lapsed Christians and new Muslim immigrants at the same rate as it has in the past. (Goujon, Skirbekk et al. 2006).Can things possibly get worse for atheism and Darwinism? Yes, once again, when it comes to atheism, it's always something! Murphy's law keeps relenting dogging atheism, agnosticism and Darwinism!
This task will arguably become far more difficult as the supply of nominal Christians dries up while more secularisation-resistant Muslims and committed rump Christians comprise an increasing share of the population.
So what is the third upcoming wave of attack against militant atheism?
If you recall, the expansion of the Question Evolution! Campaign and its 15 questions for evolutionists is the first upcoming wave of attack on atheism. We know by the most recent backing down of an atheist website, namely RationalWiki, that Darwinists cannot effectively challenge the 15 questions for evolutionists. See: RationalWiki defeated by the 15 questions for evolutionists YouTube evolutionists miserably failed as well! See: 15 Questions Evolutionists STILL can't answer!
The documentary film coming out in 2014/2015 related to the 100,000,000 to 149,000,000 people killed under militant atheism will be the second wave of attack against militant atheism. The documentary will focus on the approximate 60,000,000 people killed under the Soviet atheists. The movie is Martyred in the USSR and a trailer is at Martyred in the USSR
And the third wave of attack on militant atheism? What will it be and when will it arrive?
As noted above, the British scholar Professor Kaufman indicates the reverse of secularism in Europe could occur as early as 2021. It turns out that could be perfect timing for the third upcoming attack on atheism.
So what is this third upcoming attack on atheism? A Christian, who has significant antipathy towards atheism, has expressed interest in helping to significantly fund an internet attack on atheism. Specifically, in about 5-10 years, he/she is going to come into a significant amount of funds on an ongoing basis. Do the math. That is about 7.5 years away which roughly falls about the time of 2021.
And by 2021, Christianity will be significantly stronger in the world and atheism will be weaker. For example, religious scholars at the Center for the Study of Global Christianity, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, South Hamilton, Massachusetts, indicate that there will be approximately 4,000,000 less atheists in the world and about 352,969,000 more Christians in the world by 2025.

Yes my Darwinist, atheist and agnostic friends, the future of Darwinism, atheism and agnosticism looks very desolate indeed. And when this desolation befalls these grotesque and foolish ideologies, there will be no tears shed as these secular religions have wrought considerable human misery upon mankind. Of course, this contrast starkly with the joy which Jesus Christ brought and continually brings the world. See: Christmas joy vs. Darwinism and atheism misery
