Public interest in naturalism and anti-supernaturalism is declining. Public interest in the miraculous and the supernatural is up



















One of the core beliefs of many atheists is that supernatural events don't occur and supernatural entities don't exist. Philosophers commonly call this ideology "naturalism".

On August 19, I published a post entitled The internet spreading reports of miracles is killing atheism and will continue to do so. Pentecostalism and evangelical Christianity are booming. Also, the healing of amputees.

So is public interest in naturalism growing or declining?

Google trends indicates the worldwide searches for the term naturalism has a downward trend (see: Worldwide Google searches for the term naturalism ).

On the other hand, worldwide Google searches for term "supernatural" is dramatically up since 2004 and Google searches for the terms "miracle" and "miracles" have seen a jump in the last year (see: Worldwide Google searches for the terms supernatural, miracle and miracles).


Naturalism is an invalid and illogical ideology
