I dissagree with the statement that atheist make up less than half of 1%.
I've seen other data that the US is at about 8%.
The term Atheist has been demonized to the point that most Atheist will no use it if asked in a poll.

The old gods are dead, let's invent some new ones before something really bad happens.

I think we were getting there.Yes

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Refer to my link about Nigel Barber's book:

The fact that such a large and growing slice in the pie chart represents us belies the effort to characterize us as freaks, deviants, damaged goods and so forth.

The "Jesus who?" era can't arrive fast enough to suit me.

I highly doubt that atheism is the 3rd largest group in the world. Even in developed countrys, we still have idiots that thing evolution is a lie and thing Noah's ark is true.

Nonbelievers in the aggregate (think BIG umbrella) constitute the 3rd largest "belief" group in the world, only behind Christians (approx 33%) and Muslims (28%ish).

I wrote about this a while back - I try to source all my stuff with original source links...

It's not just atheists. The pie chart reads: “Including agnostic atheist, secular humanist, + people answering ‘none’ or no religious preference. Half of this group is 'theistic' but nonreligious.”
