I think it is because people are finally able to access the information and read the books that are purported to be "holy". Since we are able to access all this information and we are able to travel to experience other cultures like never before, we are no long bound to believe what is told to us as the truth.

I think that is why more westerners identify as spiritual because we all feel the connection to something more than us, but we no longer have to define it through the lens of the bible.
Religious people interprate the bible to fit their comfort zone and declare themselves already saved on their own terms shrugging off divine judgement day. How do you define 'spiritual'?
Experiencing God without the need to quote scripture or condemn someone to hell for believing differently from yourself.
The more you read the more you know!
Yeah thats right.
Every religion from the doomy volcano gods of the polenesians to the big million dollar mega churches share one thing in common.
