Looking at the current events, you may get the feeling that there may be a few hundren million atheists scattered around the world, of which only a few millions actually come out of their closets, so to speak. But actually, there are 1.25 BILLION non-believers [according to polls] in the world. If you take in the doubts and liers [to polls], there may be as many as 1.5 billion of us. That's a solid 21 percent of the population. And yet, religion and the religious seem to be the only prominent ones. The godless are the second largest community in the US, yet politicans care more about the tiny Jew population's votes than the non-believers. Even mentioning non-believers in his inaugural speech by obama was considered to be "shocking" [according to fox news]. Why this obscurity by the third largest community in the world?
