Why Atheism Will Replace Religion sees organized religion as a dodo. Religion evolved to help our ancestors cope with anxiety and insecurity. Supernatural belief is in decline everywhere that ordinary people enjoy a decent standard of living and are secure in their health and finances. The market for formal religion is also being squeezed by modern substitutes such as sports and entertainment. Even Facebook is killing religion because it provides answers for peculiarly modern narcissistic anxieties for which religion has no answer.
This book focuses on the emotional benefits of religion that favored its evolution amongst hunter gatherers. It links the cause of religion’s emergence with the reason for its terminal decline. The writing style is similar to the author’s popular blogs on Psychology Today and Huffington Post.
