Millenials losing their religion

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

There may be hope for the future after all. As a country we can't continue believing in religious fairy tales such as the world being created 10,000 years ago. Older generations are holding firm in their religious beliefs but thankfully the Millenials are starting to figure out how crazy and extreme religion in America is these days.

More from the Huffington Post:

About 68 percent of Millennials say they never doubt the existence of God, a decline of 15 points since 2007, while the number of older Americans with a firm belief in God remains stable. Millennials are defined by Pew as those young Americans born in 1981 or later.

Other studies appear to confirm this trend - more than half of non-religious Millennials have abandoned their childhood faith, according to a recent study by the Public Religion Research Institute and Georgetown’s Berkley Center for Religion, Peace & World Affairs.
