← Belief In God Plummets Among Youth (CHART)

They are trying to soften the reality. Everyone knows that religiosity is on a downward spiral globally...well certainly in the Western world that tends to export their delusional bollix to anyone else that will listen...

The question was deliberately couched to be ambiguous and convoluted to instil a moment of confusion...it is a crock of shite and they still did not get the answer they wanted cos the drop is so marked they cannot 'error bar' it away...but there is only so much padding to the numbers they can do...best is displaying a drop being not so dramatic as it actually is.

“I never doubt the existence of God.”

That is redolent of preacher speak...when they harangue the victims in youth camps...." You must never doubt the existence of god"...etc etc.

Why not a simpler...

Do you believe in god ?
