The internet spreading reports of miracles is killing atheism and will continue to do so. Pentecostalism and evangelical Christianity are booming. Also, the healing of amputees

Atheism is dying in terms of the percentage of people in the world who are atheists (see: Decline of global atheism ).

As noted in a previous blog post, the American sociologists Peter Berger wrote, "One can say with some confidence that modern Pentecostalism must be the fastest growing religion in human history."

Phillip Jenkins published the book The Next Christendom: The Coming of Global Christianity.

Chuck Colson, citing the work of Jenkins, writes:
 As Penn State professor Philip Jenkins writes in The Next Christendom: The Coming of Global Christianity, predictions like Huntingtons betray an ignorance of the explosive growth of Christianity outside of the West. According to Jenkins, the percentage of the worlds population that is, at least by name, Christian will be roughly the same in 2050 as it was in 1900. By the middle of this century, there will be three billion Christians in the world -- one and a half times the number of Muslims. In fact, by 2050 there will be nearly as many Pentecostal Christians in the world as there are Muslims today.
 In addition, evangelical Christianity is growing rapidly in the world (see: Growth of evangelical Christianity )

Why theism is dying and will continue to die out: Social media and the rest of internet is spreading reports of miraculous 

Miracles in hospitals - Cancer healed, lame walk ect
