Bit of a side issue, but where did you get this figure? I thought recent polling put it close to 70-75%.

yeah I boned that up, had too many study's numbers running through my head when i typed that. Xtians are at 73% as per 2012 study. Nonreligious at 20% as per 2012 study, and only 1 in 3 adults under 30 in the US believe in a god. So in the under 30 demographic it is about 33% are non religious.

I am headed to class site now to fix that, and will edit my post here to match my fix. Thanks for pointing it out, I hate when i put out bad data, undermines the effort.

You're welcome. I just saw that those numbers were different enough from what I remembered from 2012 surveys that I didn't think that it would be the result of recent polls. That, or the recent popularity of Cosmos has cost Christianity a 20 point reduction in followers in the states inside of a year! Tongue

Lol if only, right?!

Atheism is the only way to truly be free from sin.
