Despite the ship taking on more and more evangelical Christians, religious Filipinos, born again Christians and Muslims according to one of his favorite websites Wikipedia, the [[Essay: Ace McWicked - Portrait of an atheist gamma male|New Zealand atheist]] continued to deny the ship was going down as it disappeared under the sea.

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.<ref>[ London: A Rising Island of Religion in a Secular Sea] by Eric Kaufmann, ''Huffington Post'', 2012</ref>

[[File:Birkbeck College, University of London.jpg|right|thumbnail|250px|Eric Kaufmann, a professor at [[Birkbeck College, University of London]], using a wealth of demographic studies, argues that there will be a significant decline of global atheism in the 21st century which will impact the [[Western World]].<ref>[ Shall the Religious Inherit the Earth?: Demography and Politics in the Twenty-First Century by Eric Kaufmann, Belfer Center, Harvard University/Birkbeck College, University of London]</ref><ref>[ Eric Kaufmann: Shall The Religious Inherit The Earth?]</ref><ref>[ Eric Kaufmann's Atheist Demographic series]</ref><ref>[http watch?v=VwmgFZsgSo0 Eric Kaufmann: Shall the Religious Inherit the Earth?, Australian Broadcasting Corporation]</ref>]]
At a conference Kaufmann said of religious demographic projections concerning the 21st century:
{{cquote|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]].
Yang Fenggang of Purdue University, in Indiana, says the Christian church in China has grown by an average of 10% a year since 1980. He reckons that on current trends there will be 250m Christians by around 2030, making China’s Christian population the largest in the world. Mr. Yang says this speed of growth is similar to that seen in fourth-century Rome just before the conversion of [[Constantine]], which paved the way for Christianity to become the religion of his empire.<ref>[ ''Cracks in the atheist edifice''], ''The Economist'', November 1, 2014</ref>}}
=== Chinese preference for flavorful food and Shangdi ===
Wendy Rotell reports at "In general, Westernized Chinese food is considered to be more bland and fattening than authentic Chinese food."<ref>[ Differences between Authentic vs. Westernized Chinese Food]</ref>
Traditional Chinese food is more flavorful?
According to [[Wikipedia]], which is an online encyclopedia founded by an atheist and [[agnosticism|agnostic]]:
{{Cquote|Shangdi (Chinese: 上帝; pinyin: Shàngdì; Wade–Giles: Shang Ti), also written simply, "Emperor" (Chinese: 帝; pinyin: Dì), is the Chinese term for "Supreme Deity" or "Highest Deity" in the theology of the classical texts, especially deriving from Shang theology and finding an equivalent in the later Tian ("Heaven" or "Great Whole") of Zhou theology.<ref>[ Shangdi], Wikipedia</ref>}}

=== The causality is clear: The Chinese are rapidly abandoning atheism in a quest for more flavorful food ===
There you have it! The causality is clear. A positive correlation between preference for non-blandness and people fleeing atheism at a very rapid pace! Is there any doubt that a test of [[statistical significance]] would confirm this matter? Deny the Chinese are abandoning atheism in a quest for their more ancient, flavorful food and lose all credibility!
But is atheism bland and boring?
