The Internet Bubble
Let me tell you a little story.  I belong to a crop of people, mostly older Millennial, mostly male, who came of age during the mid 2000's, just as the so-called "New Atheism" was taking off.  My fellows and I cast down our faith, began devouring science and philosophy, and posted about it all over the internet.  Comment sections, discussion forums, blogs, the then-fledgling Youtube and social media; the whole internet was our battleground.  And over a period of 5-10 years, we won.  Atheism defeated theism on the internet.  Religious people became a laughing stock.  "Religion" or "religious" became bywords for irrationality, even among religious people themselves.  The most carefully constructed arguments by sober gray-haired PhD theologians could be effortlessly debunked by any college freshman armed with little more than Occam's Razor and a basic understanding of logical fallacies.  It really was that easy (and remains so).
