A new Harris Poll finds that belief in God is declining. It’s not really a surprise, is it?
74 percent of U.S. adults say they believe in God. That’s down a bit from 82 percent.
68 percent believe in heaven. That had been 75 percent
68 percent believe that Jesus is God or the Son of God. That used to be 72 percent
65 percent believes in the resurrection of Jesus Christ, a five point dip from previous years.
64 percent believe in the survival of the soul after death. That’s down from 69 percent.
58 percent believe in the devil and hell, down from 62 percent. (He’s happy about his dwindling poll numbers though.)
57 percent believe in the Virgin birth, down from 60 percent.
Now, as might be expected, belief in ghosts, ufo’s, astrology, witches, and reincarnation seem to be going strong. Funny, huh?
