Why are the youngsters embracing atheism like never before?
While there is no doubt that it is purely a personal choice to be a believer or non-believer, is atheism becoming a trend among the youngsters today? Are they distancing themselves from religious and spiritual matters? If so, why and is it really a matter of social concern? Let us discuss the issue seriously.
It is becoming a big spot of bother. Apart from challenging every single authority like parents, grand parents, teachers, bosses in office and so on, why is that our youngsters show an increasing disdain for most matters that are spiritual and religious? At least one in every fifteen young people is an atheist. Man or woman. Many young couples too.
Why should this happen? They tend to think that their present huge salaries will for ever save them or they can live the present lavish lives.
While atheism is a matter of personal choice and liberty, it does have a social impact only when they try to influence others who are religious.
