Good News!

Belief In God Plummets Among Youth --
Young Americans are abandoning God in droves.

A new survey by the Pew Research Center finds that belief in the existence of God has dropped 15 points in the last five years among Americans 30 and under.

Pew, which has been studying the trend for 25 years, finds that just 68 percent of millenials in 2012 agree with the statement “I never doubt the existence of God.” That’s down from 76 percent in 2009 and 83 percent in 2007.

And a related story: "Analytic thinking promotes religious disbelief"
Science. 2012 Apr 27;336(6080):493-6.
You think?

And how would you feel, Spooked, if a similar survey showed belief in extra-terrestrial, "ancient astronauts" had dropped by a similar amount?

Don't like it so much when your own ideological "hobby horse" has a rough ride, do you???

there are 100's of billions of stars in this galaxy alone, and 100's of billions of galaxies in the universe - how many stars is that? did god create everything in his workshop?
if so, it would take one hell of a godly microscope for god to be able to focus in on little ol' us.
