Yes but its a funny thing. Most people don't go to church weekly, just for Christmas, weddings and funerals. But religion is never discussed in the work place, it's considered off topic. So you might know somebody for years and then suddenly find out they are an atheist as is the case with my sister in law. I don't even know if she realises I am an atheist! Its just something that doesn't come up. I have no idea which of my friends are atheist and that says a lot about how private faith is in the UK. So I find the surveys done by the Guardian and RDF which suggest non belief is actually a large group quite believable.
