But doing a poll in the middle east on religion might bring an obvious outcome.

I agree. Even if there was a poll, I think many atheists would tick the box marked Muslim, out of fear.

RE: Atheism rising in the middle east
like Brian said…the cracks are showing.

just the fact that they are making videos discussing the topic (rather than just blowing it off as teen rebellion) shows that its more people than they are comfortable with.

I like that they are discussing it…..it makes others realize there is another option. They don't have to subscribe to what is being shoved in their faces…..there are others out there that don't buy it either.

baby steps.

Want to know what would help solve this shit real quick? Instead of dropping bombs on their heads with CIA drones, I say we air-drop them in crates full of Playstations, condoms, and hardcore porn. They'll all be too busy gaming, wanking, and fucking out centuries worth of pent up angst to do much of anything else. Drinking Beverage

RE: Atheism rising in the middle east
It has always seemed to me that this region has had the twentieth century dropped on it from a great height. Camels, Tents, Submission... BOOM! Ferraris, Skyscrapers, Questioning. Atheism is going to seep into the cracks, but it will take a very long time to emerge here.

People live as though there's no god, as they do in the West, and swear blind that they're true believers every Friday. There's (secretly) more porn than you can shake your stick at although I still can't get GTA V.
