The Rise of Atheism

Atheism is big in Japan - the overwhelming majority of young people we talk to say they are atheists. Atheism is also growing by leaps and bounds in America. My assertion is that atheism fits best with the modern secular mindset. In a global society that boasts the freedom to choose, we get selfishness, not theism. In a society that promotes tolerance, we get tolerance; but only for those who accept no absolutes. In a society that lifts up the human mind and "science" over God himself, we get macro-evolution, we get abortion and we get all other kinds of evils (Rom. 1:22ff). Put it all together and the new atheism today is not a far stretch at all.
