    • Resumen de hallazgos: La brecha de edad respecto a la religión en todo el mundo June 13, 2018
      Según varias mediciones, los adultos jóvenes tienden a ser menos religiosos que sus mayores. Lo contrario se da en raras ocasiones.

    • 2. Young adults around the world are less religious by several measures June 13, 2018
      Adults under 40 are less likely to be religiously affiliated Perhaps the simplest way to measure attachment to religion among people of all ages is to look at the percentage of people who identify with a religious group. Pew Research Center surveys around the world routinely ask: “What is your present religion, if any?” Respondents […]

    • 1. Why do levels of religious observance vary by age and country? June 13, 2018
      Social scientists have proposed various explanations for age gaps in religious commitment around the world. One common explanation is that new generations become less religious in tandem with economic development – as collective worries about day-to-day survival become less pervasive and tragic events become less frequent. According to this line of thinking, […]

    • The Age Gap in Religion Around the World June 13, 2018
      Young adults tend to be less religious than their elders by several measures; the opposite is rarely true. This pattern holds true across many countries that have different religious, economic and social profiles.

    • Essere cristiani in Europa occidentale May 29, 2018
      L’Europa occidentale, culla del protestantesimo e storicamente sede del cattolicesimo, è diventata una delle regioni più secolari al mondo. Anche se la grande maggioranza degli adulti afferma di avere ricevuto il battesimo, oggi molti di essi non si descrivono come cristiani. Alcuni affermano di aver abbandonato gradualmente la religione, di avere smesso di […]

        Westeuropa, die Geburtsstätte des Protestantismus und der Hauptsitz des Katholizismus während des größten Teils seiner Geschichte, ist heute eine der säkularsten Regionen der Welt. Auch wenn die weitaus überwiegende Mehrheit der Erwachsenen angibt, getauft zu sein, beschreiben sich heute viele nicht als Christen. Wie eine neue, umfassende Studie des Pew Re […]

Godtube Video of the Week – So Goes the Rest of the Nation

Vodpod videos no longer available.

more about “untitled“, posted with vodpod

Video equating the recent weather disasters with the ban being lifted on Gay Marriage in California.   Apparently to some people, God hates homosexuals so much he would  inflict disasters on completely innocent people.  What a nasty God.   But I suppose their “reasoning” is that the rest of the country tolerated it so God is bringing “judgement” on them for not stopping it.

Richard Dawkins: The Big Question

The methods of evolution by Darwinian natural selection can in fact tell us why we are here and not merely how. Dawkins explores the details.

Diabetic Girl Dies While Parents Pray…

On Sunday in the Town of Weston, near Wausau, 11-year-old Madeline Kara Neumann died of diabetic ketoacidosis, a treatable though serious condition of type 1 diabetes in which acid builds up in the blood.Neumann’s parents said they didn’t know she had diabetes. They didn’t take her to a doctor. They prayed for healing.

http://www.jsonline.com/story/index.aspx?id=732626

I hope the parents get charged with Manslaughter. The girl had not been to the doctor since she was three years old. This is utterly disgusting and if a parent had done that and had been an atheist, they would be arrested and charged with neglect, child abuse and manslaughter.
