Comment 12 by drumdaddy :

The kids are getting smarter. I forecast majority atheism in the USA by the year 2025.

We are engaged in a war for enlightenment, being fought over generations. See "The war for enlightenment".

I predict that atheism will become widespread in the USA not so much by de-conversion of adults, but because each generation will be less religious than the previous one.

It will be years before even a particular new generation by itself is majority atheist. (Perhaps 2025, who knows?) Then it will be generations before the older generations where atheists are a minority die out.

We are engaged in a war for enlightenment, being fought over generations. And we are winning some battles! See "We are winning some battles in the “war for enlightenment”".
