    Depends which religion you're asking about. Christianity, yes. Islam, on the other hand, seems to be booming. Wasn't there one year recently where the most popular boys' name/most registered boys' name in the UK (or maybe just London, but still) was Mohammed? :dontknow:

    Hopefully it won't be too long until Islam becomes the dominant religion/political movement.

    I see religion declining in the short run but it isn't necessarily for the better as those that leave religion often pick another superstition to distract them from their mortality. Another thing to factor in is that the non-religious through their "duty" to be more considerate of the environment and the resources available on the planet, tend to have fewer children- the converse can be said of the religious. In the long run I see the religious demographic increase, unfortunately it won't be the increase in the more tolerant form of religion either.

    Unfortunately yes, and it's a darn shame how many people are just laughing off the thought of religion when that used to be the bedrock of our nation.

    Hopefully that will never happen, while I don't care what others believe in as long as it doesn't affect me political islam and shariah law is a horrid ideology, and if islam becomes dominant I won't be able to get a Bacon sandwich.

    I argue religion is not declining but simply changing as society develops, taking a more privatised form.

    If you're referring to science, well, the backbone of science is that it can be proven and measured.

    Unfortunately it seems to be trendy amongst hippie liberals to completely denounce Christianity and everything it stands for - we all know Islam is their religion of choice.

    Hopefully with Britain becoming more and more conservative we'll revert back to being a proper Christian country again, and the first step in doing this is to secure our borders and tackle immigration head-on.

    Ummmm.... I don't know what you've been told but whatever it is, it's wrong. Science cannot be proven and that's why it's all referred to as theory.
