Basin girl shoots Smithsonian photo of the day; religion nearly extinct

The 8th annual Smithsonian Photo Contest closed Dec. 1, 2010. Editor's Picks will resume with new images on April 4, 2011 after the start of the 9th annual Smithsonian Photo Contest on March 1, 2011.
Ms. Eckman, a goddess in her own right, is the daughter of Basin's Odd Goddess.

At a recent meeting of the American Physical Society in Dallas, it was announced that nine countries acknowledge the pending death of religion. The article in appeared in BBC News:

And in all the countries, the indications were that religion was headed toward extinction.
