A new study from the Pew Research Center suggests that Christianity could become a minority in the United States within a few decades. The study used current religious compositions, demographic data, and rates of “religious switching” to project four possible landscapes for the US by 2070. The study found that if recent trends in religious switching continue, Christians could make up less than half of the US population within a few decades.
The winter solstice is an important annual event that marks the shortest day and longest night of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. While it has traditionally been associated with religious celebrations, such as Christmas, it is important to understand the reality of the solstice from an atheist perspective. Many ancient societies held celebrations around the time of the solstice, but these were not necessarily tied to the solstice itself. In modern times, some atheists celebrate the solstice as a time to embrace reason, science, and humanist values, while others may simply enjoy the secular traditions of the holiday season.
Upon closer examination, it becomes clear that the Kalam Cosmological Argument for the existence of God is flawed and lacks a logical foundation. The argument relies on the assumption that something cannot come from nothing, which is not supported by scientific evidence, and it assumes that God is the only possible explanation for the existence of the universe.
