R_Collins Posted June 9, 2018 Share Posted June 9, 2018 The decline in the percentage of Christians in the USA has been well documented by several long-term, statistically valid studies. I got curious about when Christians might become a minority in the USA, so I plugged some of this data into a spreadsheet and made some forecasts using linear regression. The forecast, based on the 70 year trend, is some time in the early 2100's. But this downward trend has accelerated significantly recent years. The forecast, based on the most recent 20 years of data, is sometime in the 2040's, and "nones" may outnumber Christians sometime in the 2050's. I've created a 7 minute video that discusses these forecasts in detail, and gives some reasons why the downward trend in Christians has been accelerating in the past two decades. Here's the link to the video. I hope you enjoy it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mvdq4Cz9MTQ 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
