Revival? More like steady growth for a long time. In the U.S., Gallup says that "none" has grown pretty steadily as a religious preference from 1-2% in the 40's and 50's to about 14% in 2012. No sign that will change. In Europe the numbers are much higher, with the number of nonreligious a majority in many countries and at least a quarter or better in most. As I recall, "none" is still thge largest single religious preference in the world.
