The Other I

Take your pick

Yesterday I read about a research study that says that religious belief is dying out and will eventually become extinct in nine countries.  The suggestion is that as people become better educated and more affluent, they become less religious.

On the other hand, several days earlier I came across a research study reporting that religious families around the world have more children than non-religious families.

Personally I very much doubt that religion is on its way out.

Changing yes.

I strongly suspect that as long as there are people who wonder what we are doing here and where we are going, as long as we are social animals, we are going to have some forms of what today is called religion.
