1/3 of Younger Americans Are NOT Affiliated with Any Religion
The number of Americans who do not identify with any religion continues to grow at a rapid pace.
One-fifth of the U.S. public — and one third of adults under 30 — are religiously unaffiliated. Young adults today are much more likely to be unaffiliated than previous generations were at a similar stage in their lives. These generational differences are consistent with other signs of the increasing irrelevance of religion among many Americans.

On mormon.org/chat right now

Chattin’ with some real Mormon missionaries. Give it a whirl! They’re just as absurd online as they are in real life.

Americans’ [Dis]Belief in Evolution 
jtotheizzoe:

A full 46% of those surveyed believe that God created humans in their present form within the past 10,000 years. The number has essentially remained unchanged for the past 30 years (44% in 1982).
You can check the Gallup report for the detailed results, but a few things jumped out at me:
Among people who never attend church, a full 25% still subscribe to creationist views.
There’s only a 17% difference (58% vs. 41%) between Republicans and Democrats.
Almost 4 out of 5 Americans believe God had a hand in creating humans in some way.
What bothers me is that evolution is at the core of so much of science, and to dismiss its truth is akin to a mathematician dismissing that 1 is half of 2, or a chemist refusing to acknowledge the existence of electrons. You simply cannot fully immerse your brain in the workings of our living world without evolution.
And in thirty years of bloody-knuckled work to bring science into people’s lives, it feels like we still haven’t gotten anywhere.

Scientists are obviously scheming for grant money to do lesbian witchcraft on your children.

Exactly.

Lol yeah, except “BCE” and “CE” are still determined by the times before and after Jesus.
