I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

Maybe there's hope after all

Just when I was about to give up on the citizens of the US there is some indication that things are moving in the right direction.
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.
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.
And this is interesting:
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.
