  1. non religious is up over 30% now. another record. education is slowly winning over superstition. as soon as this generation dies out it will change even more:

    Gallup classifies 40% of Americans nationwide as very religious -- based on their statement that religion is an important part of their daily life and that they attend religious services every week or almost every week. Another 32% of Americans are nonreligious, based on their statement that religion is not an important part of their daily life and that they seldom or never attend religious services.

    One-track minds are simple minds. You are a bore. Keep it up and your wife will divorce you, your kids abandon you and your dog will piss on your leg.

    Only a zealout like you would try and turn those stats into your headline.

    1. How is that new or different
    2. the poll and the classification are close to meaningless

    this was the conclusion

    Bottom Line

    "America remains a generally religious nation, with more than two-thirds of the nation's residents classified as very or moderately religious. These overall national averages, however, conceal dramatic regional differences in religiosity across the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Residents of Southern states are generally the most religious, underscoring the validity of the "Bible Belt" sobriquet often used to describe this region. Coupled with the Southern states in the high-religiosity category is Utah, the majority of whose residents are Mormon -- the most religious group in America today. On the other hand, residents of New England and a number of far Western states tend to be the least religious."

    4. Many of the people classified as non religious would still say they believe in God and many would still identify as part of a religious group.

    5. We also know that people tend to forget about God during their single and trying to get laid years and return when they start raising families or getting older and wondering about meaning and afterlife.

    No thinker... your stats are meaningless. your bigotry is manifest your ideas are filled with hate. You are what you despise.
