Netscape News reports on a recent Harris poll:
- Ten percent of Protestants, 21 percent of Roman Catholics, and 52 percent of Jews do not believe in God.
- 84 percent of women believe in God, compared with 73 percent of men.
- 91 percent of African Americans believe in God, compared with 81 percent of Hispanics and 78 percent of whites.
- 87 percent of Republicans believe in God, compared with 78 percent of Democrats and 75 percent of Independents.
- 82 percent of those with no college education believe in God, compared with 73 percent who went to college.
Those are very interesting numbers. Although 79 percent of Americans believe there is a God, only 66 percent are absolutely certain of it - that means that 21 percent of the population are atheists and 34 percent are agnostics. Much, much more than people usually assume!
