One-fifth of Americans are religiously unaffiliated — higher than at any time in recent U.S. history — and those younger than 30 especially seem to be drifting from organized religion. A third of young Americans say they don't belong to any religion.

NPR Morning Edition co-host David Greene wanted to understand why, so he gathered a roundtable of young people at a synagogue in Washington, D.C. The Historic 6th & I Synagogue seemed like the right venue: It's both a holy and secular place that has everything from religious services to rock concerts. Greene speaks with six people — three young women and three young men — all struggling with the role of faith and religion in their lives.

Mr Stephens says David Nicholls' comparison of religious belief to believing in fairies is "outright stupid".

He says religion is bound in the history of philosophy and the history of "ideas themselves".

"What we're talking about here - whether it be Christianity, Judaism or Islam - are ancient traditions that have been in relentless rigorous dialogue with every philosophical tradition, every moral movement, every literary tradition. These are traditions that exercise rigorous forms of self-criticism, of development," he said.
