The jewish and hindu(to a certain degree) numbers really stand out. It looks like evolution is getting a stronger foothold in the moder world though.Smile

RE: Interesting religious survey
It surely helps that the older generations are dieing off. Now that sounds really cold. I love my family members and I dont mean to imply I want them to die.

But beliefs rooted in 'Well we have done it this way for years,' are dieing off. The younger generations, us, and our scientific knowledge are slowly taking over the top of the steps.

Somewhat uplifting.
