I think Sheldrake is completely mistaken in the last point you make, Ray.

One need only visit churches which stand almost empty on Sundays, or sparsely populated by a predominantly aged congregation, to realise that there is no "post atheistic revival" of interest in God or spirituality here in the UK.

The number of people attending the Church of England’s Sunday services fell again last year, to 722,000 – 18,000 fewer than in 2016 – continuing a trend seen over recent decades.

In fact, in terms of all major Christian traditions, numbers continue to decline. Let's look at the 'hatched, matched and dispatched' figures of baptisms, weddings and funerals for further confirmation:

Quote

Annual statistics released on Wednesday by the C of E also showed a decline in the number of people turning to the church for key life events. The church conducted 106,000 baptisms and services of thanksgiving for a new child in 2017, compared with 120,000 the year before; 41,000 marriages compared with 45,000 in 2016; and 133,000 funerals compared with 139,000.

Down. Down. Down.
