Does anyone actually believe in God or are they just afraid of the personal ridicule they would receive if they said they didn't? Over the last 2 weeks I've gone on dates with 4 single girls that all swear to me that they are very religious, I don't say anything about it. I just say I was raised in a Catholic household. Well after our 1st date I "drop a bomb" the next day and tell them, that I don't think it's going to work because I'm agnostic. Hesitant at first, they are all ok with it after I tell them that 80% of my friends go to church and that I participate in volunteer activities, and social events at a local church, just because I find that it's typically made of high quality people. After saying this, they have no issue... so my thinking is that no one actually believes, they just like the type of people that go... typically thought of as conservative, college educated well mannered and successful.
