There is a current trend toward ‘Religion without God’ — churches are cropping up without God as the center of attention and simply building community. This is not entirely new, Ernest Holmes’ Science of Mind has been in this area, along with questionable movements like Scientology for some time.
But with the growth of technology, atheism has also become more active. Bill Maher, Richard Dawkins, Stephen Hawking and other popular atheists ridicule literal interpretations of scripture and denial of evolution, but this is the low hanging fruit.
This, Sam Harris does very eloquently, and he is a proponent of Spirituality without Religion, which is a very popular movement.
