It’s mostly good news all around. Evangelicals are the only ones who are managing to hold their ground, so that’s bad. But “Unaffiliated” which includes atheists, agnostics, and “Nones” are up from 21% in 2013 to 26% in 2023. We continue to be the fastest-growing demographic in the US. Furthermore, an increasing number of Americans simply find religion irrelevant or otherwise unimportant, and those numbers are growing as well.

There is hope for the future, should we survive so long.

    The growth in Evangelicalism against the decline of Christianity overall indicates people are either leaving the religion entirely or switching to evangelicalism, likely in the hopes that it is better able to fulfill the magical promises of Christianity.

    I went through a similar life crisis in college, converted to fundigelicalism, and left years later. Turns out, the only things it can provide is rigid dogma and strong magical thinking.
