    • I thought it was great information as well. All of the info in this post comes from the maker of the video. I was familiar with some of this info, but it’s nice to have it all gathered together.

    • A lot of things over night.

      I wouldn’t be surprised that the US in a short period of time would become a very oppressive country, possibly even become either a theocracy or a fascist state. Not all religious people in the US are fundamentalists, but most religious people in the US are far from being liberal. There is a strong connection between liberalism and atheism. The country has already been pushed center right, but without liberals as a balancing force this would be an ultra-right country.

      Also, atheists are more represented among the young than the old. If atheists disappeared, so would a large chunk of the younger generations. It would become a country of the old which would destroy the economy.
