Canada, the world less religious now than in 2005: Report

Just to throw this out there too - look at the other religious sects that are experiencing a falling away as well...1) Over time when many of Jevohah's Witnesses prophecies didn't come to pass, membership declined. 2) What if Romney doesn't win the Prez election? Oh yeah, potentially many in the Mormon cult will leave b/c they saw the "White Horse Prophecy" didn't come to pass. 3) RCC - with all the pedifile scandals, nuff said.

Ultimately, this is setting the stage for the Antichrist to emerge.

Canada, the world less religious now than in 2005: Report


Canada is one of many countries experiencing a significant decline in religiosity, according to a new report that found the number of people around the world who claim to be religious dropped 9% since 2005, while atheism rose 3%.

More than 51,000 men and women in 57 countries were asked, "Irrespective of whether you attend a place of worship or not, would you say you are a religious person, not a religious person or a convinced atheist?"

The Global Index of Religion and Atheism found 59% of respondents think of themselves as religious, 23% as not religious and 13% as convinced atheists.

China has the largest population of atheists (47%). Ghana has the largest population of people who consider themselves religious (96%). Meanwhile, Ireland, once above average in religiosity but rocked by numerous child sex abuse scandals involving the Catholic church, had a drop in those claiming to be religious - from 69% to 47%. Only Vietnam saw a bigger decline, from 53% to 30%. Canada is ninth on the list, with a 12% drop.

The study also found that religiosity declines when people prosper.

"People in bottom income groups are 17% more religious than those in the top income groups. The richer you get, the less religious you define yourself," according to the study.

The study was conducted by WIN-Gallup International between November 2011 and January 2012, with a margin of error of 3-5 percentage points at 95% confidence level. Forum Index -> Bible Prophecy, Dreams, Visions
