You're saying that like you're calling Christians ignorant. I mean if Christianity's right then all the Christians will go to heaven, an the rest to hell. If Atheists are right, then well, nothing.

Wha..?

Anyway, I doubt Christianity will die out in any of our lifespans, it will just adapt. It's been around some 2000 years.

Christianity is not the only religion out there. Maybe you oughtta take that in consideration and rethink your statement.

Ancient Egyptians are hardly impressed, and Mayans think you're cute.

if the jews are right, you go to hell.
if the islam is right, you go to hell.
if buddhism is right, you go to hell.
if nordic mythology is right, you go to hell.
if the mayans were right, you go to hell.
if scientology is right, you go to hell.

if just 1 of the thousends of other options is right, you go to hell.
christianity is not more right then any of the other believes.

(if the atheists are right, then no1 will go to hell.)

Christianity is arguably the largest modern religion, so, if it ever dies out, it'll probably take a few thousand years. Paganism wasn't quite as large and we still celebrate Pagan holidays... more or less.

islam currently has more followers. as for the few thousand years part, I've noticed a growing atheistic trend. at the rate of its increase, should it continue, then christianity (or at least one major religion) will die out within a few hundred years.

Christianity has about 33% of the world population, about half of that is Roman Catholic. Islam has about 22%. Here.

Paganism is still alive and well, being Pagan myself. It's a much better path for one who wants to be closer to their own ancestors etc.

pagan is a rather blanket statement, even more so than Christian as it can cover a number of different religions, not just denominations.

if the jews are right, you go to hell.
if the islam is right, you go to hell.
if buddhism is right, you go to hell.
if nordic mythology is right, you go to hell.
if the mayans were right, you go to hell.
if scientology is right, you go to hell.

Actually not all of those would send you to hell. We could use Christianity alone as an example. There are something around 34,000 denominations. Worship wrong for many of them and you go to hell. So even if Christianity is right you could still got o hell for worshiping wrong.

islam currently has more followers. as for the few thousand years part, I've noticed a growing atheistic trend. at the rate of its increase, should it continue, then christianity (or at least one major religion) will die out within a few hundred years.

Christianity makes up about 2.1 billion followers world wide while Islam makes up about 1.53 billion followers world wide.

As for growth rate, Non-religious (not necessarily atheist but they are included) is the fastest growing group as a position on religion.
