If Abiogeneis>Evolution truely evolved all life on Earth, then it evolved homo sapiens obviously. If people still exist in billions of years, and they could tell us now that one belief system would be completely gone by that time, which belief do you believe will be "evolved" or "phased" out, Creationism or Atheism, and why do you think that is? Which belief system has the best chance of surviving billions of years of future human history? If Creationism, what will religion look like at that time? If Atheism, what would a future world with no religion be like?

I would say that niether of those belief systems will lasts billion years, because in all likelihood, humanity will be extinct at that point. But considering that the nature of your question is more likely "which will last longer?", I think that hey will last the same amount of time, considering that all it will take for a belief system to survive is one adherent, and there will always be at least one creationist and atheist out there.

But with regards to which belief system is more likely to be dominant in the future, I think that the answer is atheism, or at the very least secularism. I chose this as the most likely because of the rise of atheism and similar belief systems over the past few decades in developed countries. In this hypothetical future where most people are atheists or something similar, I think that the world will essentially be as it is now.

Only one of them is a belief system, creationism.
But hey you're not the first ignorant godbotherer to make that mistake.

Your religion is so much a religion that it has its own churches.
