Thought: Religion Extinction

From 'Organized religion 'will be driven toward extinction' in 9 countries, experts predict' by Richard Allen Greene, CNN:

"Organized religion will all but vanish eventually from nine Western-style democracies, a team of mathematicians predict in a new paper based on census data stretching back 100 years.

"It won't die out completely, but "religion will be driven toward extinction" in countries including Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the Netherlands, they say.

"It will also wither away in Austria, the Czech Republic, Finland and Switzerland, they anticipate."
