I guess it's not that big of a trend as being a Atheist is.

Being an Athiest is a "trend" ? or Maybe it's more of a georgraphical thing....

Yes. Georgraphical and cultural. You think people just choose their religion when they come of age? Or are they taught and influenced from a young age. It would take a lot of time and effort to convert to a religion that you weren't raised with.

There's a difference between going from a practicing Christian to an athiest, than being raised one religion and converting to a religion that is not prevelant in your culture.  Most people associate with the religion their parents practice. 
But I was actually making the point that becomming buddhist isn't a "trendy" thing. Its less practiced because it's not as prevelant.  It's a little insulting to call someone's beleifs a trend. 
Im a little surprised the georgraphical thing was the debateable part.  Different religions are more prevelant in different parts of the world.

Well, definitely not a trend any more than Christianity is a trend. You either believe in deities or you don't.

I've started looking into Buddhism, reading books and meditating. I'd like to learn more but am unsure where to look.
