If the internet did not exist, I may have very well not come across the wealth of information that ultimately made me deconvert. Idk if it will destroy religion, but the internet will seriously dent it.

In October of 2012 the Pew Research Center announced that for the first time ever Protestant Christians had fallen below 50 percent of the American population. Atheists cheered...

Why? Why do they even care?

It's easy to claim that a thing is self-evident when you've already convinced yourself that it is.

Many think religion is a detriment to society that is holding us back, imposing its will in unnecessary places and causing death and destruction around the world.

When religion numbers falls, that's always a good thing to us. VERY good.

Which is why it's better for people to stop being religious by free will rather than force. Also, guilt by association.
