About the Book

Across the Secular Abyss draws upon the best social-scientific evidence to understand profound religious changes occurring in advanced societies today, as previously separate fields of science converge, leaving progressively less room for faith. It finds that the positive functions of religion have been exaggerated, are declining, and are replaceable by benefits from new Transhumanist technologies; however, serious concerns are raised whether atheism is compatible with long-term survival of the human species, given falling birth rates.
About the Author: William Sims Bainbridge is a consultant for the Center for Social Complexity at George Mason University and the author of many books and articles in the sociology of religion, science, and technology, including The Future of Religion (with Rodney Stark), The Sociology of Religious Movements, The Endtime Family, God from the Machine, Goals in Space, and Nanoconvergence.
