I actually believe it's been

I actually believe it's been this way for a long time. How long, I'm not sure, but probably going back at least to the 19th century. I do think that the "global" community that we are developing is making it more difficult to live in an insulated bubble.

The trick, though, is not just getting people to doubt the existence of god. It's getting them to admit it in public. If more people could talk about it over drinks at happy hour, there'd be a lot less xtians out there.
