    Default Americans Skeptical Of God But Think Heaven Is Real, Somehow

    Americans Skeptical Of God But Think Heaven Is Real, Somehow

    Since 1980, the number of Americans who believe in God has decreased by half and the number who pray has declined five-fold. Has America lost its faith?

    Researchers found that the percentage of Americans who claim they never pray reached an all-time high in 2014, up five-fold since the 1980s. Over the same time period, belief in God and interest in spirituality appears to have similarly declined, especially among young adults.


    The findings suggest that, “millennials are the least religious generation in memory, and possibly in American history,” says Jean M. Twenge, psychology professor at San Diego State University and coauthor on the study, in a press statement. “Most previous studies concluded that fewer Americans were publicly affiliating with a religion, but that Americans were just as religious in private ways. That’s no longer the case, especially in the last few years.”

    Maybe it has something to do with money, greed and power that is part of the corporate culture we see today.

    Although I am no longer a Church goer,I still believe in the Christian values I was brought up on. This country was founded on Christian values but today the values are taking a backstage to the far liberal left..I believe that as Americans we have that right to worship as we please.. There are many in the world that want to take those liberties away from us and force their beliefs on us. Do I believe there is a heaven? Absolutely, cause I have been living in purgatory since the day I got here and I also worked for a company that was bought by YRC. Maybe that was a taste of Hell..

    The belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God.

    How does that line go? I swear there ain't no heaven and/but I pray there ain't no hell.

    I believe in God, I believe in one's right to worship, I believe that the far liberal left isn't any better then the far conservative right when it comes to religion.

    People's thoughts on religion are why we have the freedom to worship and it should be a fundamental human right.

    "I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between Church & State."
    Thomas Jefferson

    There is a reason the debate continues to this day.
