Today we have internets (lots!). I would expect a new idea to spread a bit faster than it did a couple thousand years ago.

16 atheist participants. lolololol

Also, what sort of people were these test subjects? Were these the typical western middle class graduate students used in most of these studies?

EDIT: answered my own question. The group consisted entirely of Finnish women who accepted invites sent through Skepsis and The People's Bible Society. Talk about a narrow test group.

Ok LOL I am now totally laughing at myself. Yes, You're right - we do have internets. LOL I still think even with the speed and availability of the internet it will take Long time to spread Lack-of-belief. (just sayin)

thanks for the correction tho - you're absolutely right LOL

When I want your opinion I'll read your entrails.

Internets aside, I'm inclined to agree with you. It will take lots of time. Don't break out the party hats just yet.
