"Why Are More College Students Becoming Atheists?" asks HigherEdMorning.com:
The number of atheist student groups on college campuses has doubled in the past two years. The question is: Why? There are currently more than 250 non-theistic student groups at U.S. colleges and universities, according to AlterNet.org.
Just last year, there were only 159 such organizations, reports DailyOrange.com.
So are a growing number of students turning away from religion and toward atheism – or have they just become more vocal about it?
