I think Christianity has nothing to worry about from people asking things like this. It has over 2 BILLION followers in the world. The second largest is Islam with just over 1.5 BILLION. That's in the neighborhood of half the population of Earth in just those two Faiths.
Those against religion are amusing at times...but always will be a rather pronounced minority in the long run. No one faith is right over another, to my thinking. Not in theology. However, most of the planet does call one faith or another their own. I think those without religion have their right too. Absolutely. It's when it crosses into dumping on those who DO have faith that it gets a bit tacky.

Many people don't take it seriously even today, though there are obviously tons of Christians still alive today.
How long do you think it'll be until Christianity dies down?
My guess? Christianity will greatly die out in the next 100 years. I believe it'll be a sharp decline, considering science, atheism, and rational thought are becoming more and more prevalent, and since the invention of the Internet, information is being spread at a faster rate than ever before.
Christians can answer this too, it's an interesting thought.

Not much longer, hopefully.
Without it, we would have been far more technologically advanced than we are currently.
Please provide a study done that has shown Christianity has withheld technological advancement within the last 2000 years.
Oh, wait. You can't. Lol.
Yet a majority of Christians don't even know their own bible and religion as well as a non believer.

LMAO, well educated, what a pathetic statement. Being a christain is an intellectual aswell as a spritual journey. I doubt you will find any fault with the new testament and how christains should act. It is funny on how nonbelievers spend so much time trying to fight something that is supposedly false. Science as it evolves will prove the Bible correct. In the mean time I will pray for you, funny thing if I am wrong not much changes, if you are wrong Hell will truly suck for you and by the way enjoy the tribulation the time draws near.

You dont even need to be a christian to see this poor guy for who he really is.
better believe jesus was real.
You simply cannot deny the influence Jesus life had on the course of history. he has permeated so many parts of the world, to say its fake is just plain stupidity.

Jesus Christ (pardon the pun), assumption jumping must be your forte!
Never said Jesus wasn't real. Get a grip.
