Atheists are dying out، study found

A new study has suggested that atheism is doomed because religious people have higher rates of reproduction. Independent reports.
Due to their lack of belief in contraception، religious believers are having more children than atheists، which could ultimately result in the end of atheism، the study suggests.
The findings fly in the face of popular discourse - and scientists’ predictions - which implies fewer and fewer people are religious nowadays.
Scientists from the US and Malaysia studied over 4،000 students، asking them about their religious beliefs and how many siblings they had.
They found that Malaysian atheists had 1.5 fewer siblings than the average.
The gap was narrower in the US، where students unaffiliated with any religion had 0.16 fewer siblings than average - non-religious couples had 3.04 children، whereas the average for the whole population is 3.2.
