Let’s play a game of Future Shock!
What will happen in the world of Atheism vs Religion in the future? Will Religions all die out, or will they find some way to survive in the world? Give your best prediction of how you think it will all go down.
Here’s my prediction. See if you can do better.
Title:Atheists! Start tying up your running shoes.
Over the next 50 years well see a great decline in Religion to point of near extinction (except for Yemen where it will always remains rampant). Well see a big boom in the world economy and finally the world will start to use logic and reason instead of blind religious ambition. We’ll reach a pinnacle of perfection in the year 2112 until our perfect economy pops causing great dismay across the land. The world stock will drop, jobs will be lost, people will starve and mankind will fall into a great depression. It is at this point where religion will start to shine once more. In a matter of months you’ll see churches popping up and prayer groups in the middle of streets. There will be protests and brutality that mankind hasn’t seen since the middle ages. It’s at this point where the Religious groups will literally step on each other to gain the upper had. We’ll see Religious wars for a good 30 years after that and then…..there will be peace. The clerics will have finally come together and joined their cause in the realization of the greatest evil that has been fueling the flames of hate for so many years. It’s those damn ATHEISTS who have been confusing us for 130 years. We must destroy them all before they corrupt the minds of our youths the way they have been doing for so many years! So for the next 5 years you’ll see Atheists being brought out, tortured, and killed for being possessed by the Demons. All the history (e)books will be deleted and everything we’ve built will be destroyed. Except for the Churches. Which will thrive for another GLORIOUS 1000 years before humanity could remotely get back on it’s feet again. *tear* It’s all so beautiful.
Hey, what could you expect? I’m at work on a Monday at 12:45 am. My stories get a little twisted at the wee hours of the night. And before anyone starts to jump on me about this post, please understand that it’s not to be taken seriously. Feel free to critique my Shocking Future, but please post one of your own.
