New Study Finds Young Adults Have Lost Interest In Religion
You know how people used to say that European and American churches are filled with old men and women? Well, that has become the reality throughout much of the world, according to a new study.
The new analysis also shows that’s the case in nations that historically identify with Christianity and also in some with large Muslim populations.
Adults between 18 and 39 are “less likely” than those 40 and older to say “religion is very important to them in 46 out of 106 countries” surveyed.

Among those 46 are the United States, Mexico and Canada, as well as Iran, Lebanon, Algeria and Mali.
In 58 countries, “there are no significant differences between younger and older adults,” according to the analysis by the Pew Research Center.
Only Ghana in Africa and the former Soviet state Georgia “have younger adults who are, on average, more religious than their elders,” according to the survey, which also touched on religious commitment among Buddhists, Jews and Hindus.
