Going Godless: Does Secularism Make People More Ethical? – SPIEGEL ONLINE – News – International

Druckversion – Going Godless: Does Secularism Make People More Ethical? – SPIEGEL ONLINE – News – International.

This is a very interesting article, even if there is a lot that can be debated in it, not the least the way it defines what being ‘ethical means. Nevertheless, it is a subject that should interest to the highest degree people of faith. Here is a quote about the size and the importance of the secular people among us:

‘Secularists make up some 15 percent of the global population, or about 1 billion people. As a group, this puts them third in size behind Christians (2.3 billion) and Muslims (1.6 billion). Despite their large numbers, little is known about this group of people. Who are they? And if not religion, what do they believe in?’
