It's a good time to be an atheist - a really good time to be an atheist!
Science and Philosophy
God not needed to explain the origins of the universe - This provides scientific rationale against the cosmological and fine tuning arguments.
Synthetic Life - Craig Venter has shown that synthetic life is possible. This research, amongst others, will lead to a further understanding of abiogenesis.
Extrasolar Planets - Hundreds of extrasolar Earth-like planets have been discovered showing that the Earth-like planets are not rare in the universe and increases the probability of earth-like life elsewhere in the universe.
Scientific Morality - Although I don't necessarily buy this, Sam Harris thinks science can answer questions on morality.
Free will is an illusion - Some theistic traditions require free will to have moral culpability.
Majority of scientists/historians/psychologists/sociologists are atheistic - The more knowledgeable you are the less likely it is you believe in god.
Majority of philosophers are atheistic - Even the study of philosophy does not lead one to god, even though philosophy is the last great stand for the religious.
"God's Will" is our will - fMRI scans show that when people are asked what God wants, its equivalent to what they want.
Politics and Society
Australia has an openly atheistic Prime Minster - Not many people cared about this fact.
The fastest growing "religion" is none - People are no longer keeping their religious traditions.
Societies which are organically atheist are healthier - Contrary to the belief that without religion society would collapse.
2 Million books sold on one atheistic book - The God Delusion has sold over 2 million copies!
Christian Atheists and Atheist Clergy - Even some of the religious no longer really believe.
