23. I don't think religion will go away, rather I think its influence on society will steadily...

 

decrease over time, to where it will become irrelevant. There will be quite persistent groups out there, but, over time, religion will die a rather peaceful death in the long term, at least for the vast majority of people.

The key is, first and foremost, education, and the spreading of critical thinking skills, teach someone to think, and you have a skeptic on your hands, and spread the skills of thinking, and faith itself becomes irrelevant.
