A new report emerged stating that Christianity is going to diminish completely by the 2067. This report has based its expectation on three different studies. It is based solely on Christianity centers in Great Britain, but there is no evidence that other Christians around the world would not experience the same.
In line with statistical data, the number of believers in Christianity between 2001 and 2011 has decreased by more than 5.3 million people. If this trend continues, and each following week 10,000 people abandons Christianity, by the 2067 Christianity as a religion will cease to exist in England.
The Social Attitude survey also found evidence of this decrease in the number of believers in Christianity. Their data reports that a number of believers in 1983 from 40% of the British population fell to 29% in 2004, and to 17% in 2014.
Christianity is on the decline in the US also, and probably in the rest of the world. Thirty-six percent of Americans between the ages of 18-24 declare themselves as non-believers in any religion.
Writer Damian Thompson puts into focus one of the most argumentative legal issues in the United States in connection with privacy and abortion and the helplessness of Christian-minded conservative right to reverse the Supreme Court’s ruling on Roe v. Wade. He said that this is a sign of fading religion, both in Britain and the US, and not a result of widespread support for abortion.
Even though the statistical data are the proof of decline in the number of believers in Christianity, this trend might change in the future.
Another fact that is brought into the attention is the number of young people who do not believe in Christianity and the reason which clarifies this trend.
It is likely that the more a civilization becomes advanced, both in knowledge and in technology, the more all religions become redundant.
