I'd have thought in this day and time, there would have been more with no religious affiliation

Given the propensity of people to go to war over religious differences, it seems like that would be a good thing.

Agree. People are entitled to their beliefs, but it doesn't make sense to start wars over belief systems ...or mode of economy ...or color of skin ... or language spoken.

On the other hand I see trouble coming when it comes to resources; especially food shortages
