Demographics and the future of fundamentalist religion

May 5, 2010

This is a very interesting talk by Eric Kaufmann:

Kaufmann talks about the use of demography in refuting the view that religions (in particular fundamentalist religions) will die out in the western world. He gives direct and indirect reasons for religious people having more children; the indirect ways had never occurred to me.
