America's belief in God hits new low

The number of Americans who believe in God has dropped to the lowest level in the 78 years Gallup has asked the question, per a poll out Friday.

81% of U.S. adults say they believe in God — down 6 points from 2017.

Belief in God dropped the most among young adults, liberals and Democrats, with these groups showing a drop of 10 or more percentage points compared to an average of polls from 2013 to 2017, Gallup found.

More than 90% of Americans believed in God between 1944 and 2011.

Conservatives and married adults experienced little change in beliefs, and other subgroups, including education level and ages, experienced but a modest decline.

62% of liberals, 68% of young adults and 72% of Democrats say they believe in God. These groups experienced the largest declines in beliefs, Gallup notes.

Belief in God is highest among political conservatives, with 94% saying they believe in God, and Republicans, with 92% saying so.

While the percentage of Americans who believe in God is down over the last five years — and down even more when compared to the last several decades — a majority of Americans still believe in God, Gallup found.
Millennials and Gen X’ers seem to be driving “dramatic changes” in beliefs and lifestyles in the U.S., according to the results of a Arizona Christian University survey released in May 2021. Younger Americans are embracing other beliefs, such as horoscopes, over organized religion and traditional biblical teachings, the survey showed.

God has always been around, as God is time and space itself.

Re: America's belief in God hits new low

God is an ever-watchful, ever-judging figure. He sees all. Even the things you wish he didn't. He's not happy with the person you've become, Anti SJW. Repent before him, the Holy Father, lest he paddles your bare ass with his plague stick.

"And God said to the Israelites 'Bare thy asses toward me. Whatever you feel pass through you is naught but mine Holy love and forgiveness. With it, you may accomplish wonders.' And a wave of Holy orgasms spread throughout God's people for they knew they were truly blessed to be entered by the Lord."

Exodus 4:3-9.



And that is why we shout God's name when we have sex.

When I am king you will be the first against the wall, with your opinion which is of no consequence at all.

Awww is the poor woketard mad that God hates your kind and your kind are going to hell when you die (and rightfully so)? Stop being a fucking poser.

Re: America's belief in God hits new low

You're not a true believer in the word of God. I'll be praying for you, my son.

What's truly retarded is ignoring modern scientific cosmology and philosophy (none of which makes this claim) and instead believing in bullshit people made up before they even knew what atoms were.

But at least you're being consistent with your knuckle dragging ignorance, I'll give you that.

The funny thing is that you science fanatics have taken over in terms of creating dogma and have become no better than organized religion. Meet the new boss (science community) same as the old boss (religious community).

Re: America's belief in God hits new low

Meet the new boss (science community) same as the old boss (religious community).

They aren't the same. They are the exact opposite. Science is based on evidence and careful collection of data with strong criticism and scrutiny by all members of a community to look for and correct mistakes. Religion is just made up bullshit.

You wouldn't understand the difference, obviously. Only sane, educate people would, and you aren't close to being either.

Nah science is made up of bullshit as well. If that was the case then why was Pluto changed from a planet to a gas ball? Science also says you're born a dude or a chick. Science says that men are naturally stronger than women. Science says vitamin D and the sun kill viruses thus why less people are sick during longer daylight hours…

The funny thing is that you libtard hipsters all of the sudden like science because of dr. fauci and probably never gave a shit about science beforehand. It's like you people are a bunch of pathetic posers that hop on any bandwagon that suits your agenda.

Your status as an uneducated lunatic who knows nothing was confirmed long ago. No need to remind anyone about it. We know.

Re: America's belief in God hits new low

Calls me a lunatic, yet belongs to a political party that can't decide what gender they are. Irony.

Re: America's belief in God hits new low

I believe in The Trinity. I just don't place my faith in the Church. That's all. But you would understand if you actually went to church, believed in The Trinity and read portions of The Holy Bible.


Oh yeah…and you got to intelligent. I've found that religion works best with intelligent people. Stupid people can only grasp the conceots in a very simplified generalized way which easily confuses them also.

Re: America's belief in God hits new low

Believe in the almighty creator and believe in no man. BAM! 💥

No, I'm from Ohio. I only work in outer space…

Re: America's belief in God hits new low

That's incorrect.




I don't place my faith in the Church. Faith is something altogether different from belief. I don't even place my trust in the people going to church.

I don't have faith that church people will do right by me. I don't have faith that church people will follow Christian rules, lifestyle and God's laws. And follow the teachings of Christ.

Just because they are Christians it doesn't mean that they are qualified to do anything Jesus or God Himself can do. They are only followers.

Church people judge each other. They are fake. They judge the world. They are fickle. Most of time they are illiterate.


I'm through with The Church. The only reason Church exists is because God saw that some people needed a house for worshipping Him.

I don't trust The Church either.

Re: America's belief in God hits new low

There's nothing wrong with not believing in organized religion, it has many problems, but you might find that some of these people that have walked away are more spiritual and do believe in a God just not an organized fashion.

I know this from first-hand experience.

The reports won't show that.

I catfish in person.

Re: America's belief in God hits new low

Or the research does show that, and that's why the number is high.

Organized religion is one of the biggest scourges on this planet.

Norman! What did you put in my tea?

Some of them are. Not all.

Blanket statements like that are the real scourges. You should know better.

Re: America's belief in God hits new low

Pew actually did some research on this recently and found that religiosity in the US was about 70%. It was somewhere around 65% Christian, with every other major religion being 1% each.

This is either poor research, where they polled 1000 people in rural Alabama, or they're including agnostics like me.

Anybody with a logical brain knows agnosticism is the correct answer, by the way. It's stupid to think there is, or there isn't, a god. You have no evidence either way.

Re: America's belief in God hits new low

81% of U.S. adults that have a landline and bothered to not only answer the survey but also bothered to answer the phone, so < 8% of the overall population
