* '''Atheism''': Most human societies have also been highly religious, whereas modern civilizations are highly atheistic. Atheism tends to imply lower birth rates.<ref></ref> This may be highly related to the two previous points, i.e. perhaps atheists practicing arranged marriage and [[female subordination]] may be able to achieve the same birth rates as religious groups.
