The Future of Religion

This is an interesting website featuring articles on the future of religion. One article I read predicts that in the next decade as well as a century from now, Christianity and Islam will continue to dominate as world religions. I have my doubts. Islam, it seems, will have much less power after oil peaks in more countries in the Middle East. Christianity would also seem to lose much of its force as more of the world becomes educated. The wild card in all this is what happens to China. Christianity appears to be growing rapidly there, but it may face a backlash if people begin to perceive it as a Western import.
