Seriously??  The "New Atheism" is extremely popular with the younger generation.  It is on the advance, not the decline, despite the fact that it's more brain-dead than ever.  (You can sell a brain-dead philosophy to a generation that spends 95% of its waking hours with an iPod or iPhone.)

I believe it's more of a fad than anything else. It leads nowhere. It will eventually disappear the same way it became popular.

A return of religiosity can be discerned in the West, although it's messed up. In fact, that is one of the requisites before the anti-Christ appears. He will fullfil a leading religious role and many will look up to him. He could very well be an anti-pope.

I'd like to you're right, and you may be, but atheism has "gone viral" in the twentysomething generation.  I know partially because I deal with some of these people daily.

But that doesn't mean it can't die out just as quickly, I suppose.
