Symbols of the 9 Major World's Religions

Some may be alarmed to hear about an article I read today claiming that religious affiliation is waning in at least 9 countries of the world.

Even though I am not very comfortable with traditional religion, I do find comfort in gathering together with other people of my faith. I feel a lingering sadness when I learn that the next generation (or this one) doesn’t have access to this form of community, and perhaps is missing a personal connection with God.

However, I believe that religion and faith are two separate matters.

Please, read the following article. I’d love to hear your thoughts about this.
