Australian Atheists now outnumber religions at 30% but could reach 40% in 2021 census.
According to the snowballing trend upwards in citizens declaring themselves atheists in the last few census studies we could see a result in the 40's next census. The last one in 2016 was nearly 8% higher than in 2011 which in turn was 3% higher than the 2006 census. From 2001 to 2006 there was also a 3% increase. As most religious people tend to be quite old and younger people are increasingly non-believers each generation the 5 year gap between census studies could be partly attributable. Internet access and a reduction of religion in schools are also thought to be major factors as students are able to find answers online not censored by religious institutions.
If this trend does continue as predicted we could see atheists in the position of being the majority by 2026 when it is expected they will comprise over 51% of the population. At that point Australia will truly be a Secular Nation.

pamz: Is this a good place to put a question??? This board seems to have been well organized and energetic. What's happened? I know message boards can lose energy...is that it? Or, was it something else? Did the furious finger of GAWD strike you?
