Despite what the militant atheists on YouTube and various political opinion forums would have you believe, adult Americans as of 2007 are, as a whole, people of faith.
According to Pew, 17.3% of Americans identify as Atheist (16.1%), New Age/Pagan (0.4%), or Don’t Know (0.8%). This means that 82.7% of Americans identify as one of many types of religious denominations. In a nation with an approximate population of 305 million people, there are 252,235,000 people who believe in a power greater than themselves.
God bless America.
