    Never. It's face and form may change throughout history but religion will always end up existing in one form or another

    With both theism and atheism, you approach uncertainty by coming up with an answer to believe in.

    With agnosticism, you approach uncertainty by realizing you don't have an answer. You deal with this by learning to accept not knowing.

    From there you may find answers, or you may not.
    I think at some point you get tired of religious people's bs and just say fuck it.
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    Atheism will not replace religion. It could replace faith, though. Faith could also replace religion.

    I'm certain that we'll blow ourselves up first.

    If you simply mean that atheism will be more prevalent than religion, my arbitrary guesstimate is 100 years in the developed world. It's all sort of dependent on the evolution developing nations. A rather large percentage of Europe is already atheistic and the youth of America is steadily becoming more and more godless. Perhaps I'll give the cause a bit of a jolt by engaging my fellow citizens in the joys of not perpetuating nonsense. I would be a kind dictator indeed.

    I agree with both, and would prefer to see agnosticism take over. It is the only logically defensible position regarding deity.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    @Rasofy
    Good one!

    It will happen sooner in industrialized countries. But we are getting more liberal so maybe we start accepting dissidents.

    Edit: It already happend in Europe. According to surveys there are actually only 53% believing in some kind of god in Austria, in USA 81%.

    if the question is in totality, i voted never. i think current religion views are loosing ground, but with time they will morph, and new religions will come to replace them. the desire to comprehend more then we can understand is a self contained relativistic equation that grows the more we can understand, and this will continue to motivate us. the singularity - if it happens - will probably contribute to that process more then it takes away.

    Atheism doesn't replace religion. It replaces theism.
