Atheists At Risk of Dying Out Due to Belief in Contraception

Religious people are having more babies
A new study has suggested that atheism is doomed because religiouspeople have higher rates of reproduction.
Due to their lack of belief in contraception, religious believers are having more children than atheists, which could ultimately result in the end of atheism, the study suggests.
The findings fly in the face of popular discourse – and scientists’ predictions – which implies fewer and fewer people are religious nowadays.
But the new research claims religion is actually at no risk of dying out and the reverse is in fact the case.
…“It is ironical that effective birth control methods were developed primarily by secularists, and that these methods are serving to slowly diminish the proportional representation of secularists in forthcoming generations,” the researchers said.
