Atheism on the upswing in America?
OK 90+% believe in god, but the amount that don’t believe has ticked up quite a bit since 1967. Still, if you dig deeper, there is more doubt.
Those under 30 believing are down to 84% I’m guessing that the older you are the more the God idea is going to be hard to let go. Likely we need to see a few generations die off before we numbers turn to where I would want them to be.
It’s interesting that when you give people a ‘way out’ across the whole population, the number of believe in God himself drops to 80%. I would guess that’s a big difference from 50 years ago, but that’s just my guess. However for me the story gets even better…
When you have only 73% convinced that God exists, you have a lot of people that can be reached today. With the internet, it only gets easier to reach out to these folks. It’s going to take time to deprogram people, but it will make the world a better place.
