Nearly half of Americans uncertain God exists: poll
Nearly half of Americans are not sure God exists, according to a poll that also found divisions among the public on whether God is male or female or whether God has a human form and has control over events.And this is interesting:
The survey conducted by Harris Poll found that 42 percent of US adults are not "absolutely certain" there is a God compared to 34 percent who felt that way when asked the same question three years ago.
Among the various religious groups, 76 percent of Protestants, 64 percent of Catholics and 30 percent of Jews said they are "absolutely certain" there is a God while 93 percent of Christians who describe themselves as "Born Again" feel certain God exists.I have often thought that many went to church for social rather than spiritual reasons and the above would seem to indicate that is the case.
I had just about given up on the people of the United States after a Harris Poll in 2005 indicated that 64% believed in Intelligent Design.
