God is Dying in Canada
One could say that God is dying in Canada, as well as many other places. Because there is no good reason to believe that any God actually exists in reality, one could say that God is alive insofar as the God meme (i.e., the socially propagated idea) is being subscribed to and spread. Research in numerous regions around the globe has shown that older generations are more likely to buy into one God meme or another than are younger generations. Larry Moran recently posted on a study showing that theism is far lower among Canadians below the age of 25 (60%) than Canadians 50 and older (82%). It appears that one of the main contributors to the death of God is, well, death. Approximately 23% of Canadians are non-believers. Among Canadians 25 and under, disbelief rises to 36%. I and surely millions of other atheists will rejoice in the fact that faith-based intellectual dysfunction will continue to decline during our lifetime. Dogmatists may be able to protect their cherished memes by way of closedmindedness, but no amount of intellectual acrobatics will save these misguided memes from the inevitable natural passing of their propagators.
