well there are several religions older than 2000 years now.... but some notable religious have grown out of fashion... most notably
Greek/Roman mythology, personality cults of Jim Jones and the Branch Dravidians. But many are thriving after over 2000 years.
Now if in a few years The messia comes depending on whether he claims to be here for the first or second time he could put the cabash on either Judism or Christianity respectively) and may at the same time either confirm allah's revelations to Mohammad or deny them.. If you are an athiest you will definitly be hoping for Jesus to come down tell the Jews that he has been here before, tell the Christians they got everything backwards, tell the muslims that mohammad was jsut delusional and then say
"Beam me up daddy there is STILL no intelligent life here."
but if you ever get into a situation where your cold intellect is of no use, all things are possible through faith.
There will always be a need to try to solve/cope with impossible situations with faith and prayers.. that is the way we are now ...
and the way the world is going I do not see an anesthetic blissful state anywhere on the horizon.

"One of the most striking 1990-2001 comparisons is the more than doubling of the adult population identifying with no religion, from 14.3 million (8%) in 1990 to the current 29.4 million (14.1%). " - http://www.gc.cuny.edu/press_information/current_r...
Theism is dieing, even more so in Europe.
Adult church attendance in Britain is at 7.7% and only 2% now attends an Anglican church regularly. Source: Economist/New York Times, Dec. 22, 2000
You can tell that there are a lot more atheists these days.. in no small part due to the Internet. The same thing happened when the printing presses were made. The church has never been able to stand up to a free exchange of information. Now that they have lost their best tool in silencing us (burning us at the stake)..it is all downhill from here. The belief in bible/koran god will be looked at similar to the way we look at the Norse gods now in the not so distant future.

No-but delusional idiots of the past will be purged. That--in a nutshell is the purpose for this quarantine station called earth. What a wonderful future lies ahead--knowing that God has zero tolerance for sin.

Or will Atheism be considered a mental abberation, and philosophical backwater of this era?
I doubt the concept of God will ever vanish, but what will shift and change is man's view of his Creator.
Religion is just man's attempt to comprehend God. From the first days of the Shamen walking with Gitche Manitou, to the far future, with whatever the words become.
Words are man-made, to describe ideas. Idea's are memes, and meme's are energy, and energy is neither created nor destroyed, just changed from form to form.

I get laughed at plenty in the present already...
"You are free in our time to say that God does not exist. You are free to say that he exists but is evil. You are free to say like some poor satirist that he would like to exist if he could. You may talk of God as a mystification or a metaphor; you may boil him down with gallons of long words or boil him down to the rags of metaphysics. It is not merely that nobody punishes you, but nobody protests. But, if you speak of God as something like a tiger, as a reason for changing ones conduct, then the modern world will stop you if it can. We are long past talking about whether an unbeliever should be punished for being irreverent, it is now thought irreverent to be a believer." - GK Chesterton

I don't know where you got your information, but Christianity is growing faster than it ever has before. If you don't realize that, you don't live in Africa or China. The atheist population may be growing and I feel sorry for them. DO you really want to live 2000years more on a cursed planet?

Only people who think God is a joke will look like idiots in the future.

and the atheist population is not growing in % of population, it remains the same as always,
Real numbers are growing as population grows but you remain the dull minded minority.

At the rate we are destroying the planet, I think this could be a moot question.
But, for the record, didn't the Jews and the Romans think pretty much the same thing about Christianity, 2,000 years ago??
We're still here...and we'll be here till our God comes for us.
