Study: World Is Turning More Religious; Atheism Declining
A new study says the world is more religious now than it was four decades ago, and this trend will continue to 2020 and perhaps beyond even as the global share of the nonreligious is likely to witness a sustained decrease.

The percentage of the world that is religious continues to increase, according to the study titled "Christianity In Its Global Context, 1970-2010," conducted by the Center for the Study of Global Christianity at Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary in Massachusetts.

In 1970, nearly 80 percent of the world's population was religious, and by 2010 this had grown to around 88 percent, with a projected increase to almost 90 percent by 2020, the report states. The growth of religious adherence can largely be attributed to the continuing resurgence of religion in China, it notes. ...

I read an interesting book years ago called,"How to be a Christian Without Being Religious"..not everbody that claims to be religious,like Chris said, are a Christian or even act like one..even Jesus said as much when He said,"not all that say Lord Lord will enter into the kingdom of heaven and they will have I not done all these good works..cast out demons in your name..done all these miracles in your name and I will lsay to them

I do believe the article specifically states the WORLD is getting more religious, not necessarily Austin. It also says the numbers are driven in large part by a resurgence in China, so unless you are looking outside of your own little neighborhood, you may very well not see it. It also doesn't restrict it to Christianity, as that is not even projected to be one of the fastest growing religions. The term "religious" is a rather vague, ambiguous, non-specific term. After all, even atheists are religious.
