1. as society is growing less egalitarian, that should result in more believers.

 

"Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, just as it is the spirit of a spiritless situation. It is the opium of the people."

2. Possibly...

But reading the whole Bible all the way through creates more non-believers than policies.

3. I would agree to that IF

 

So many people didn't read the book without looking for some sort of message on an emotional level.

The same reason seers and palm readers can still make a living.
