Kicking atheism, agnosticism and evolutionism when they are down. Why its time to crush godlessness like an aluminum can



 Is it time to kick atheism, agnosticism when they are down?

Agnosticism is actually more prevalent than atheism although atheism gets more press.

So how is agnosticism doing in the world?

How is atheism doing in the world right now?

How is evolutionism doing in the world right now?

How is Jesus doing in the world right now? Is Jesus triumphing like he always does?

Is it time to ramp up creationist fundraising/outreach and crush godlessness like an aluminum can?

In 2015, Pew Research indicated in their report The Future of World Religions: Population Growth Projections, 2010-2050 that agnostics and atheists “will make up a declining share of the world’s total population.”

The Center for the Study of Global Christianity (CSGC) at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary estimated that agnostics made up 9.5% of the global population in 2015. CSGC projects that agnosticism will be 8.71% of the global population in 2025 and 7.19% of the global population in 2050

Atheism is in decline worldwide, with the number of atheists falling from 4.5% of the world’s population in 1970 to 2.0% in 2010 and projected to drop to 1.8% by 2020, according to a new report by the Center for the Study of Global Christianity at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, Mass.

 The prominent historian Sir Diarmaid MacCulloch, professor of the History of the Church at Oxford University, indicates that he believes Christianity faces a "bright future" worldwide. According to MacCulloch, "Christianity, the world's largest religion, is rapidly expanding – by all indications, its future is very bright."

Professor Phillip Jenkins published the book The Next Christendom: The Coming of Global Christianity.

Chuck Colson, citing the work of Jenkins, writes:
As Penn State professor Philip Jenkins writes in The Next Christendom: The Coming of Global Christianity, predictions like Huntingtons betray an ignorance of the explosive growth of Christianity outside of the West.

For instance, in 1900, there were approximately 10 million Christians in Africa. By 2000, there were 360 million. By 2025, conservative estimates see that number rising to 633 million. Those same estimates put the number of Christians in Latin America in 2025 at 640 million and in Asia at 460 million.

According to Jenkins, the percentage of the worlds population that is, at least by name, Christian will be roughly the same in 2050 as it was in 1900. By the middle of this century, there will be three billion Christians in the world -- one and a half times the number of Muslims. In fact, by 2050 there will be nearly as many Pentecostal Christians in the world as there are Muslims today
Professor Eric Kaufmann told a secular audience in Australia: "The trends that are happening worldwide inevitably in an age of globalization are going to affect us."

The main ideological supply line of atheism/agnosticism is Darwinism. And Darwinism is vulnerable. Johns Hopkins University Press reported in 2014: "Over the past forty years, creationism has spread swiftly among European Catholics, Protestants, Jews, Hindus, and Muslims, even as anti-creationists sought to smother its flames."

General Douglas MacArthur declared: "The history of war proves that nine out of ten times an army has been destroyed because its supply lines have been cut off...”

Answers In Genesis has put a lot of effort into fundraising. However, I think there is room for a lot of improvement for other creationist ministries.  And its very doable. It just a matter of time before they do it - especially when Christendom sees the success of the combined effects of the Answers In Genesis website, the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter.  I think Answers In Genesis is going to have a lot of forward momentum post Ark Encounter. Furthermore, and more importantly, evangelical Christianity is a fast growing and very evangelistic religion in the world and most evangelicals are staunch creationists. And global creationism is on the rise.

So is it time for Christendom to ramp up creationist fundraising and outreach and crush godlessness like an aluminum can?

  1. Finland: Church Attendance Falls; Religion Seen as Private

    The holiday weekend filled pews in some churches, but regular church attendance at Finland's Lutheran services continues to fall. Just 1.8 percent of parishioners go to church weekly. Religion remains a very private affair for Finns—even for those who are active churchgoers.
    ------------------------------------------------------

    Nearly eight in 10 Danish people are members of the Church of Denmark, known as "the People's Church". The Church is both Protestant and episcopally-led. Everyone who is baptised automatically becomes a member. Just 2.4 per cent of members attend every week.

    Thousands Quit Church of Denmark After Atheist Tax Campaign
    ------------------------------------------------------

    Attendance at Church of England services has plunged to its lowest level ever as the Archbishop of Canterbury warned it was battling to maintain its place in an increasingly “anti-Christian” culture.

    Official figures – based on an annual pew count – show that only 1.4 per cent of the population of England now attend Anglican services on a typical Sunday morning.

    In the province of Quebec one Catholic Church is closed every week. Church attendance has gone from 85% a few decades ago to 6% today.

    1. Analyst,

      I wrote in the article: "By the way, can you satisfactorily answer the 15 questions for evolutionists AFTER clicking on the links for the supporting articles and videos on the page so you make an informed answer?

      Please do so.

  2. Analyst, are you cherry picking data and guilty of the fallacy of exclusion?

    The religious/political demography expert Eric Kaufman (who is an agnostic) says there will be a resurgence of religion in Europe and deseculization in Europe in the 21st century by 2050 or earlier. why is Eric Kaufmann who is cited in the article wrong? See: http://www.conservapedia.com/Desecularization

    Is Europe aging? Is Europe being flooded by religious immigrants who have higher fertility rates? Will aging European pensioners require new salaried people to support them and take care of them? How will this be accomplished with many European countries having sub-replacement fertility rates? Through immigration?

    Yes, liberal Christianity is dying in Europe, but is evangelical Christianity growing in Europe? Was evangelical Christianity the fastest growing religion in France in 2012?

    On July 12, 2012, the Christian Science Monitor reported:
    “French scholars say, evangelicalism is likely the fastest-growing religion in France – defying all stereotypes about Europe’s most secular nation...

    Daniel Liechti, vice-president of the French National Evangelical Council, found that since 1970, a new evangelical church has opened in France every 10 days. The number of churches increased from 769 to 2,068 last year

    Please tell me why Kaufmann's analysis is wrong by rebutting and addressing this articles content: http://www.conservapedia.com/Desecularization
