As the statistics of atheists show, their number is increasing every year. The number of non-believers usually depends on the standard of living in the country. At the same time, the percentage of atheists differs in different countries.
Believers often dream of family, children, health and fidelity. What do atheists believe in? By definition, an atheist is a person who denies the existence of God. They are convinced that there can be no otherworldly forces. Atheists believe that instead of a church, it would be worth building a school. For them, the material side of life, career growth, prosperity are more important. Religious people also dream of living comfortably, but they think about it less often.
Religion brings you closer to the moral ideal, spirituality. Awareness helps to let go of problems and start dreaming. Believers know that after death they will have another life. Whereas every seventh atheist believes that there is no need to dream.
According to research by British scientists, the level of intelligence is higher among people who consider themselves not religious. Historically, the existence of otherworldly forces has been questioned by more educated individuals. The work of Florida psychologist Tod Shackelford confirms the credibility of these studies. His conclusions are based on the results of the largest studies over the past hundred years. Practice has shown that more educated people are less likely to turn to religion. But does this mean that they are to the right?
The appearance of certain beliefs leaves an imprint from the past. Children raised in a religious family will believe in the existence of God. They have been accustomed to going to church since childhood. A person, in whose upbringing there was no place for religious convictions, does not believe in God and will grow up to be an atheist. If you tell an atheist about the existence of God, he will smile.
Scientists are trying to determine the conditions affecting the growth of the number of non-believers. Religion is attractive because it gives a certain sense of security in a world full of uncertainties. The need for security in countries with a high level of economic development does not arise.
In addition to the above aspects, the reasons for being an atheist lie in the economic situation. As the statistics of atheists show, in countries with a low standard of living, people more often turn to faith. The following principle is observed - the lower the standard of living, the more religious population. In developed countries, they turn less to God for help, and visit churches less often.
If we take this factor as the basis of beliefs, then in the richest countries of the world there should be no believers at all. However, in Denmark, where there is a very high standard of living and social protection of citizens in 2010, there were almost 83% of Christians. Consequently, the previous conclusions of the American psychologist look a little strange.
According to the CIA, in 2007 there were 51.3% Protestants in America and 23.9% Catholics. However, it is difficult to argue with the fact that in poor countries the number of believers is higher:
In Crimea, it is necessary to create a center for religious tourism, which will turn the region into a year-round resort, said Rustem Tagarov, Deputy Minister of Resorts and Tourism of the Republic.
"It will be necessary to create a center for religious tourism, which would be engaged, among other things, in the development of pilgrimage routes for various confessions," Tagarov said at the presentation of the pilgrimage route "The Paths of the Crimean Khans".
As one of the examples, Arabiyat cited the 3rd century Christian church in Aqaba, which is considered the oldest in the world.
