Why do atheists say "atheism is gaining" when stats clearly show atheism is in decline and projected to do so, whereas, faiths that believe.?

.. in God are growing and projected to do so?

When faced with the facts will those atheists admit they are wrong, and atheism isn't gaining anything but a smaller number of atheists.

Update: Has peak atheism been hit, and is it now in decline?
Update 2: The Lord is my Shetland : Thank you for demonstrating you won't admit you're wrong, because you instead rely on fallacies.
