Atheism may soon become extinct.

This could be something for Dawkins and his supporters to ponder on, for many reasons. Facts seem to be given by Eric Kauffman in his latest book "Shall the Religious Inherit the Earth? Demography and Politics in the 21st Century". I believe he has understated his case.

The book can be bought from usual sources and there is a reasonable long review at this URL.  It is claimed that a lot of Kauffmann's stuff can be downloaded for free at Birkbeck College website, and it is probably passably good. Kauffman also has his own site, apparently with videos etc.

Examples given in the book include the Hutterites in the USA, numbers having risen from 400 in 1900 to 50,000 today.

INO: There will also eventually - just about in our time - be more Muslims than Jews in the USA, so perhaps President Obama is optimistic about the long term future of the Democrats when he allows the large mosque near the 9/11 site. Maybe too, we need more campaigners for the religion of 'atheism' or 'Dawkinseism" to ensure that survives. If global warming gets us all, perhaps that is the best answer.
