Here is my take on Atheism its not for everyone, intelligent and well people who work at the facts of religion and think more deeply and investigate religious claims tend to be Atheists as in they find out religions are built on sand and digging undermines it. And are good due to believing in a moral system thought out and rational. Ordinary people are simple and don't really want to do the investigation and are happy to take religious claims on face value, and for them being good means following what their faith system says IS good. And rarely dig or even bother to study their religious books. From my experience many Christians don't know what's in the Bible much at all and gladly take the case against bad things as what their pastors tell them ... nothing more if they bother at all. What Atheism needs to do is come up with a simple moral system you can explain to a five year old before you can consider attacking religion since without something that is simple to replace it, most people will cling to their faith, since that is a scary idea to them, to not need it anymore. Just look at Hinduism its simple you be a good person you move up the Karmic scale and if you don't you go down which encourages being good to people who lets face it are poor, often not well educated and have nothing else to cling to. The same for your typical evangelical they are raised up in their faith so tend to be less informed in science and other things so gladly cling to their simple beliefs and try to spread this because Jesus loves them and will get them into heaven. And Muslims I'm sure many are decent people but how many study Arabic and then work at reading their book and think things out rationally maybe under 1% the educated religious elite, your typical poor laborer and convert rarely would bother with all that trusting their Imams for guidance and moral teachings a scary thought if that Imam is a dangerous radical element. Atheism on the other hand gives nothing but you try to be good because one should be good, under a moral system one must reflect on and you die and what you do here and now matters more than anything else, your a cog in the species to promote the future of the species. So to give up faith reason needs to overcome a lot especially among the poor masses of the world and I don't see that as likely. Well those are my thoughts to start.
