Belief in God is on the Decline
A recent Harris Poll
finds that while Most U.S. Adults Believe in God, Only 58 Percent are "Absolutely Certain". 42 percent of all
U.S. adults say they are not "absolutely certain" there is a God, including 15 percent who are "somewhat certain,"
11 percent who think there is probably no God and 16 percent who are not sure. Also according
to the poll, there is no consensus on Godís gender, form or degree of control over events on earth.
Contrast this to an identical survey taken 3 years ago, 79 percent of adults said they believed in God and 66 percent
said they were absolutely certain that there is a God. In this new survey, those numbers have declined to 73 percent
and 58 percent respectively.
