A new study says atheists will eventually die out because religious people tend to have larger families. I’m not sure this study holds up at all. In fact, I don’t believe there’s any way it’s true. It’s essentially the same argument as the Roe Effect which says that pro-life people tend to have less abortions than pro-choice people so therefore pro-lifers have more babies so in a few generations there will be many more pro-lifers.
Yeah, it works to a point. We have more kids but then many of us offer them up as sacrifices to the culture of cool. I see it all the time that many good and serious pro-life Catholics keep sending their children to schools and colleges that actually seek to subvert their children’s beliefs. But doing so, we’re literally creating troops for the other side of the culture war. We keep sending our children to Georgetown, Fordham or Loyola Marymount and then we act shocked when our young adult turns on everything we ever taught them. And it’s all for the low low price of $60,000 per year.
