Will 2022 be a TRULY HORRENDOUS year for global atheism?
Will 2022 be the WORST year in the history of secular leftism?
Mothers in Republican-leaning counties saw a baby boost over their Democratic counterparts after former President Donald Trump’s surprise 2016 victory. And the effects lasted for the following 2 years after he was reelected.
Question: Will there be baby boost for Republicans if there is a big red wave in the 2022 elections?
The pandemic awakened parents to what was being taught in public schools and homeschooling and Christian schools have seen a big rise. In addition, there have been protests in public school board meetings as far as critical race theory.
Question: Will the percentage of Republican parents having teens that vote like them increase higher than 70%?
More and more it is looking like 2022 is going to be the WORST year in the history of atheism - especially for secular leftism. Even WORSE than 2021 which was a very BAD year for atheism!
2021 was the lowest volume of Google searches for the word "atheist" in 17 years. Will it go even lower in 2022?
Global Growth of Christianity Outpaces Atheists, Charismatic Churches Lead the Way
Consider these 4 news stories:
1. The Slow Meltdown of the Chinese Economy, Wall Street Journal, 2021
2. When Will China Rule the World? Maybe Never, Bloomberg News, 2021
Excerpt: "The nightmare scenario for Xi is that China could follow the same trajectory as Japan, also touted as a potential challenger to the U.S. before it crashed three decades ago. A combination of reform failure, international isolation and financial crisis could halt China before it reaches the top."
There was already a risk that the Chinese Communist Party would be overthrown and the end of state atheism would cause the already explosive growth of Christianity in China to be further turbocharged (see: Future of atheism in China and 2021 was a bad year for China).
In 2020, The Economist published an article entitled Protestant Christianity is booming in China which indicated:
|“||As for China’s Christians, their numbers continue to grow. The government reckons that about 200m of China’s 1.4bn people are religious. Although most practice traditional Chinese religions such as Taoism, and longer-standing foreign imports such as Buddhism, Protestant Christianity is probably the fastest-growing faith, with at least 38m adherents today (about 3% of the population), up from 22m a decade ago, according to the government’s count. The true number is probably much higher: perhaps as many as 22m more Chinese Protestants worship in unregistered “underground” churches, according to a new study by researchers at the University of Notre Dame. As China also has 10m-12m Catholics, there are more Christians in China today than in France (38m) or Germany (43m). Combined, Christians and the country’s estimated 23m Muslims may now outnumber the membership of the Communist Party (92m). Indeed, an unknown number of party members go to church as well as local committee meetings.||”|
To see the magnitude of the explosive growth of Christianity in China, look at this graph about the growth of Christianity in China in a DW news story about Chinese Christianity (DW is a mainstream news outlet in Germany).

2021 is the WORST year in the history of atheism|2021 is the WORST year in the history of atheism
2020 was a very bad year for atheism. VERY, VERY BAD. HORRIBLE
The future of Christianity and religion in general is very bright. On behalf of all Christendom and religious people of the world, I declare victory!
Future of Christianity
See also: Future of Christianity
The prominent historian Sir Diarmaid MacCulloch, professor of the History of the Church at Oxford University, indicates that he believes Christianity faces a "bright future" worldwide (See also: Global Christianity).
According to MacCulloch, "Christianity, the world's largest religion, is rapidly expanding – by all indications, its future is very bright."
In 2012, the Center for the Study of Global Christianity at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (GCTS) reported that every day there are 83,000 more people professing to be Christians per day, 800 less atheists per day, 1,100 less non-religious (agnostic) people per day.
Phillip Jenkins published the book The Next Christendom: The Coming of Global Christianity.
Chuck Colson, citing the work of Jenkins, writes:
|“|| As Penn State professor Philip Jenkins writes in The Next Christendom: The Coming of Global Christianity, predictions like Huntingtons betray an ignorance of the explosive growth of Christianity outside of the West.
For instance, in 1900, there were approximately 10 million Christians in Africa. By 2000, there were 360 million. By 2025, conservative estimates see that number rising to 633 million. Those same estimates put the number of Christians in Latin America in 2025 at 640 million and in Asia at 460 million.
According to Jenkins, the percentage of the worlds population that is, at least by name, Christian will be roughly the same in 2050 as it was in 1900. By the middle of this century, there will be three billion Christians in the world -- one and a half times the number of Muslims. In fact, by 2050 there will be nearly as many Pentecostal Christians in the world as there are Muslims today.
As much as I hate to say it, on behalf of all Christendom, I declare victory! Olé! Olé! Olé!
Future of religion and religious fundamentalism

Professor Eric Kaufmann, who teaches at Birkbeck College, University of London, specializes in the academic area of how demographic changes affect religion/irreligion and politics. Kaufmann is an agnostic.
On December 23, 2012, Kaufmann wrote:
|“|| I argue that 97% of the world's population growth is taking place in the developing world, where 95% of people are religious.
On the other hand, the secular West and East Asia has very low fertility and a rapidly aging population... In the coming decades, the developed world's demand for workers to pay its pensions and work in its service sector will soar alongside the booming supply of young people in the third world. Ergo, we can expect significant immigration to the secular West which will import religious revival on the back of ethnic change. In addition, those with religious beliefs tend to have higher birth rates than the secular population, with fundamentalists having far larger families. The epicentre of these trends will be in immigration gateway cities like New York (a third white), Amsterdam (half Dutch), Los Angeles (28% white), and London, 45% white British. 
A study conducted by the Washington-based Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life says that Africans are among the most religious people on Earth. Africa has a high fertility rate and it is seeing a big population boom. According to the Institute For Security Studies: "Africa's population is the fastest growing in the world. It is expected to increase by roughly 50% over the next 18 years, growing from 1.2 billion people today to over 1.8 billion in 2035. In fact, Africa will account for nearly half of global population growth over the next two decades." See: Religion and Africa
At a conference Kaufmann said of religious demographic projections concerning the 21st century:
|“|| Part of the reason I think demography is very important, at least if we are going to speak about the future, is that it is the most predictable of the social sciences.
...if you look at a population and its age structure now. You can tell a lot about the future. ...So by looking at the relative age structure of different populations you can already say a lot about the future...
