Now, the big question: when (based on the historical trend) is NZ likely to achieve an atheist majority?

@lightweight I remember evangelicals coming up to me in Wellington every once in a while. The sallys too. I also remember this lecture series at a Luthern church, about the importance religion served in our social evolution/growth; how it's important to recognize that even if we don't believe in it. Welly and ChCh also had small, cozy, Unitarian communities.

@djsumdog it certainly played a role, but it'd be hard to compare to what it would've been if there'd been no religion, as that wasn't a possibility in the past. Thankfully, it is now.

@lightweight
Why does it matter?

I'm an atheist myself but I'm pretty sure there's enough room for everyone in this space.
