What sources do they use for these statements? Census?

Thats funny. Like 5 minutes

Thats funny.

Like 5 minutes ago, I was just watching Glen Beck on Headline Prime. Right after he interviewed and promoted a right wing fascist, he had a conversation with some other guy... mocked disbelief, and called atheism a religion..

fuck i hate tv. the us media is a brainwash machine.

I wish like 55% of your country were freethinkers, but at least its not 5% anymore Laughing out loud

God is the omnimax creator by definition of major religions. If there is evidence that the religion is incorrect about the nature of reality, then there is evidence that the God the religion defines does not exist.

The people who told me it was more like 14-17% now or the people who put together that chart in that link?
