Go to: Belief In God Plummets Among Youth (CHART)

They would have received more concrete data by simply asking "Do you believe in a God"? As stated the question is too vague and open to interpretation. Having said that I think you will see this dramatic decline continue as the apposing views to religion message gets out along with compelling scientific data against claims made by theists. Please hurry

Go to: What do you say to your faith-based neighbors?

I have gotten away from telling people why I don't believe. Now I approach this by first asking them why they do believe. The answer always come down to The Bible. Then I ask a number of questions about the Bible to hopefully get them thinking critically.

                 @aroundtown -Spot on! Those who produce the more offspring have greater odds of continuing their genes into future generations. IF gullibility is an inherited trait, I think your theory may hold some water. In this specific aspect of evolution, there appears to me to be some direction - in humans, at least. Those human populations who wish to exercise some control over the evolution of the species homo sapien might just do it through religious dogma concerning reproduction (as you specified). It would appear to me that reproductively responsible people are likely to get "evolved out" by those of a more "religious" mind. What kind of humans that evolutionary path will render might be less random than this article would have us believe. Very thought-provoking indeed.          

A beautiful example of this is the the movie Idiocracy. A comedy that shows what the dumbing down of society looks like after 500 years of reproduction. Idiocracy on evolution
