More Nones

March 22, 2015

GSS-Nones-807x5141Unlike some atheists, I think it highly unlikely that religion ever will disappear. If Mormonism could be conjured out of thin air in 19th century America, and if the nonsense of Scientology could gain a foothold more than a century later, it seems likely there always will be prophets who craft their gods and garner adherents to follow them.

More, I think it is difficult to predict the cultural effects of the changes now occurring in American religious make-up. It’s easy and mistaken to think that all of the consequences will please the group whose numbers are growing.

All qualifications given, I still take some cheer from the graph shown above, and related data.
