    Default Depression: Is most of it caused by Atheism nowadays?

    In our generation, depression is more common that it even was. Coincidentally or not, atheism is also very strong nowadays.
    I think that there is a connection because most of atheists turned to be atheist because they thought this way they would be free from the "opression of the religions".
    So, atheists tend to use as an excuse for themselves to live an hedonist life, based on materialism and transitory kinds of pleasures.
    But of course you cannot be happy if you are attached to impermanent things.
    Only permanent happiness is the true happiness.
    The same way we cannot be happy being attached to wordly things.
    The only way of being happy is being sastified with what you have on the present momment.
    The present momment is the only thing you need.
    But what atheists don't understand is that you cannot enjoy the present if you are a materialist person.
    Because material things are not everything.
    Spiritual world exists.

    It has nothing to do with a lack of religion and everything to do with a genetic predisposition.

    You're confusing a sense of community with the effects of religion on a person. The Amish score high on happiness. They have a sense of community. But they also suck big balls. If we were all like the Amish we would be conquered by a less happier people who are motivated to improve their lives by inventing more efficient ways of doing things, which leads to kicking the ass of people who are less efficient in doing things.

    If you truly want to be happy (and not the cheap happiness that comes from the comfort and security of belonging to a community) then you'd choose an environment where surviving each day feels like a great accomplishment (in other words you don't die) or work on something difficult that you will complete (learn a new language, be able to do 1000 sit ups in a day, etc.)

    Accomplishing something difficult that you put a great deal of effort and work makes you happy.

    I'm not sure that believing in God saves you from depression
    but it may help you overcoming it

    I'm not sure that there's a correlation. I can believe that more people are clinically diagnosed with depression these days (social isolation coming from increasing internet usage). In my experience, the real difference lies in the readiness to admit to being depressed. Christians and Muslims, I think most of the religious folks, hide it more than non-believers because for many it represents a lack of trust in God's providence or causes them to question their assumed position as a member of the elect.

    I am inclined to agree: atheism robs people of a sense of purpose or even hope (there is neither God or a higher purpose or a reward after death). It also robs people of a community as atheism does not offer its adherents anything communal like a Church does (f.i the parish). The story of the Emperor without clothes could have been about atheism as it offers nothing but statements that nothing's out there and life has no meaning.
