Oh so many things to talk about.It wasn’t an ad-hominem, it was an analogy. The woo-spouting professor is worthy of mockery, and her beliefs are little different from Religion.…your statement that I have argued that the future population is incapable of aschewing religion once again attributes an argument to me which I didnât make.By claiming “religion will probably always be with us” you’re saying that there are some people incapable of throwing off religion.If everyone is capable, then a religion-free future is possible. If they’re not, then we (your husband and I) are somehow superior, or they are somehow “damaged”. Either one is arrogant.I will amend this to say that there are certainly people that cannot be changed now. They’re just far too indoctrinated and too far gone. But future populations aren’t, and by not being silent and even actively spreading the word we can circumvent that religious education.I say it will recur because I have found very persuasive the arguments about the evo origin of religion, in particular how it is tightly bound to modules for survival, and therefore accept the idea that the natural propensity will always be present.I already talked about how we’re downplaying several “modules for survival” in our society because while they were helpful in a “red of tooth and claw” world they are not in our modern world. Rape and male dominance are two easy (and uncomfortable) examples, though there are many more.Also, the predisposition to “faith” doesn’t mean you’ll have it. Both your husband and I overcame it eventually, and many more have.Fred from “Vancouver Skeptics in the Pub” was a church-goer up until three years ago! Then the great “homosexual marriage” debate occurred and he couldn’t understand how there were arguments for and against from people claiming to be Christian, so he started studying the Bible to find the “right” answer. When he didn’t he started looking elsewhere and eventually realized it was all a sham.Now he’s one of the most active atheists in BC! You’ll meet him at Randi. Great guy.Secular Population GrowthHere are a few links. has a graph showing the increasing secular trend in college students over the past forty years, and noting that while the more educated tend to be less religious they are more observant. showing that even in America secularism is on the rise. From 8% in 1990 to 14.3% in 2001! Now that I read that, I do remember seeing another article pointing out America is growing more secular but in response the religious right is getting crazier and that’s why we think they’re getting more religious down there.
