RE: future of religion
I love this question! I'm hoping to deploy an anonymous survey about this to my 300+ theist Facebook friends to find out what they really think when no one's watching. (I'm a data nerd)

I was intrigued by a Syfy show called The Expanse where it seems that all religions have died out except for Mormonism. I'm not an expert on Mormonism, but it makes sense to me that if we start exploring space, a religion that says everyone gets their own planet when they die might be the religion that continues to feel relevant to some people.

Going by Radosław Tyrała Everyday Life Without God: A Sociology of Atheism and Unbelief and Rafał Boguszewski Religiosity and morality in the Polish society - dependency or autonomy? Sociological Study I would say that religion will sadly remain serious contender in Poland. In fact I'm worried that it will get worse when already close ties of Poland catholicism with nationalism will only get stronger - I shudder to imagine future like that: primitive chest beating nationalist who at the same time are convinced that their sky daddy order them to do x. Thankfully it's only possible, not probable future.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

I think it'll likely eventually be seen as art instead of an oracle of truth.

I don't see religion dying out any time soon, but I think it'll turn more secular and more humanist. We're becoming a very connected planet and people are interacting and really getting to know the people in other cultures. When you get to know someone, it's hard not to notice that people are people no matter where they're from or what religion they follow.

God and Buddha will be replaced by new age versions of things like chi, allowing for spirituality without names.
