“A new poll just released shows a whopping 400% increase in atheism in Ireland over the last ten years.” http://guardianlv.com/2014/01/ireland-turning-atheist/
End quote (my bold added)
These days , many atheists worldwide have been becoming more and more organized as groups. In my opinion, in big part this is simply because they have a need to.
Religion is highly organized. And therefore it follows that non religious people are also often finding themselves being effected by organized religion , whether they enjoy it or not.
If theists had have cared to do something more to help curb this situation,sometime long before it had come to this. Things might have been quite different. But it seem’s like most theists didn’t,and still don’t seem to care to bothered
So now this is the outcome of that. Now non believers worldwide have finally woken up to that fact,and decided its high due time to get highly organized and start to do something about these matters themselves.
Some are even finding new ways to replace the organized social aspects of religion as well too
Personally i wouldn’t be so bothered with getting involved in it myself. But then that’s just me. I just don’t feel the great need to be pigeon-holed within any certain group. But maybe some do feel like they need to retain that sort of feeling of “belonging”somewhere in particular. Or something like that.
In my opinion .This is all part of the situation that arises, when for so many generations now, division’s within societies have been so willfully promoted. By those whom believe in God
Some even being awarded with charity status
Go figure !
So society develops an in-contention of each other. And competition and rivalry takes over control. An air of exclusiveness evolves , rather than an air of inclusion .
Things like that
Theist held a vast majority for mega generations now.And this vast majority also cared to do very little, to try to help curb this problem.
More often than not. They were far more likely to help stand up for the rights of people getting involved in promoting it. Thus in effect, basically getting involved in also helping promote it themselves too.
And now that atheism is becoming so organized itself. A number of theist decide to suddenly claim it to be about persecution.
Theists were those who pushed us off down this track.Theists decided it was a really wonderful idea to have need to create approximately 41,000 domination’s, within Christianity alone.
Human society might have been content to have adopted a manner of inclusiveness. If the theist majority had have decided it were very wise
But obviously they didn’t
