The Skeptic article by Michael Shermer in the April 2018 edition of Scientific American is titled: “Silent no more. The rise of the atheists.”
He estimates that there are currently about 64 million American atheists and that the number is increasing. He concludes, “…if these trends continue, we should be thinking about the deeper implications for how people will find meaning as the traditional source of it wanes in influence. And we should continue working on grounding our morals and values on viable secular sources such as reason and science.”
Here at Atheist Republic we already discuss these two latter issues. Hopefully his article will also raise awareness and stimulate thought among his many readers.
