‘Religion has been a focal point for all sorts of backward, indeed bigoted, thinking‘. – Richard Dawkins
‘It is time that public policy caught up with this mass turning away from religious identities and stopped privileging religious bodies with ever increasing numbers of state-funded religious schools and other faith-based initiatives’. – Andrew Copson
The 2011 census reveals that the Christian population of England and Wales has fallen by four million to 33.2 million in the past decade.The number of people describing themselves as having no religion rose from 15% to 25% of the population.
Such a good news! It seems people are becoming less stupid in the U.K. But the bad news is, people are becoming more irrational, more superstitious, more religious in many parts of the world. If state, society and system could stop from influencing, indoctrinating, instructing people to become religious, people would definitely become less religious.
I wish people around the world could choose truth over god.
