Religion is losing ground across the globe. Societies are being transformed and the momentum seems to be unstoppable. At this point you might be asking yourself a couple of questions. First, is it actually true and even if religion is losing grounds, could things change? I'm going to argue that, yes it really is true and no, things won't change. Modernization has predictable and permanent effects. What happens is young people enter adulthood being less religious than their parents were. So there is a process of generational replacement, where older people who are more religious die out and they are replaced in the population by younger people coming up behind. For most people, religion is something they have little or no interest in. The transition is underway and because it proceeds by generation replacements, it works very slowly and will be going on for years to come. Do you think there is a way back for religion?
