I saw a news story today about how religion is dying out in countries like Sweden, Canada, New Zealand, among others. Why would this trend be happening given that christianity can stand strong against the "science" that attempts to disprove it?

When I admitted that I personally believe that some parts of the Bible were not recorded the way God intended, he tried to say, what if all of it was " made up". I was stuck...
So I was having a debate with a couple of atheist friends of mine and they kept trying to say that religion was made up because people fear death. Honestly though, that has crossed my mind, but I find that some of the things Jesus taught were not what I would have said if I were trying to make mysel...
