  •  The official full findings are linked at bottom (0+ / 0-)

    Of the ARIS page. Tiny fonts, but the full findings, full questions, methodology, the works, are actually released on that page.

    In the major findings section of the official report, it states:

    Based on their stated beliefs rather than their religious identification in 2008, 70% of Americans believe in a personal God, roughly 12% of Americans are atheist (no God) or agnostic (unknowable or unsure), and another 12% are deistic (a higher power but no personal God).

    One day posterity will remember, this strange era, these strange times, when ordinary common honesty was called courage. -- Yevgeny Yevtushenko
