A recent study by the Christian Ethics and Public Policy Center found that most Americans believe that God is real.
The study’s authors also noted that many Christians have become increasingly aware of how religious beliefs can lead to prejudice and violence, and that many Americans increasingly do not believe in the supernatural.
The Pew Research Center found last year that more than 40 percent of Americans have a “strong” or “fair” belief in God, compared to 36 percent who have a less-than-strong belief.
But Pew also found that the percentage of Americans who say God is “not real” has remained steady.
That’s the same proportion of Americans (42 percent) who said that God does not exist as recently as 2012.
In addition, in 2012, 37 percent of people said they were “generally opposed to God.”
The Pew study also found large gaps in people’s understanding of the Bible and how they interpret it.
Just 28 percent of those surveyed in 2012 said that the Bible teaches that God created the world on day four of the creation story, compared with 65 percent who said the same in 2012.
A Pew Research poll released in 2014 found that 57 percent of Protestants surveyed in 2014 believed that the Old Testament is a “complete history of humankind” that “does not contain any errors or inconsistencies,” compared to 43 percent who believed that it is a book of “falsified history” that contains “errors and inconsistencies.”
A Pew poll released last year found that a majority of Americans believe in evolution.
About half of Americans surveyed in 2015 (48 percent) believed that evolution is “a scientific theory with no empirical support,” compared with 35 percent who held that the theory is “supported by scientific evidence.”
The American Association of University Professors released a study last year showing that in 2015, 57 percent (nearly three-quarters) of Americans said they believed in evolution, compared the number who said they believe in creationism (33 percent).
A Gallup poll in 2015 found that nearly seven-in-ten Americans (69 percent) believe that humans are the descendants of a species called Homo erectus, compared, at the same time, with only about three-in to four-in (30 percent) of the population believing in creationists.
The survey also found a majority (52 percent) said that “people who believe in human-made climate change are a threat to the environment and the economy,” compared, on the other hand, only 36 percent (36 percent) agreed that they are a “threat to the safety of people living in the U.S.” and 22 percent (19 percent) disagreed.
The report from the American Atheists’ Institute found that roughly three-thirds (67 percent) Americans believe “the government should regulate businesses that are providing services that promote religion.”
Just 11 percent (13 percent) disagree.
Another poll released by the American Public Opinion Strategies (APOP) last year showed that Americans have an overall negative view of the Supreme Court.
A poll conducted by the Pew Research Poll found that 59 percent (62 percent) disapproved of the court’s decisions, compared only 23 percent who approved.
The APOP poll also found “large gaps in opinions about the role of religion in society,” including the belief that “religion is the main source of moral and political values.”
Just 10 percent of respondents (8 percent) thought that “society should respect people’s right to believe whatever they want to believe,” compared the poll’s margin of error of 4 percent.
The Washington Post’s Faith and Freedom blog reported last month that an APOP survey showed that only 25 percent of American Catholics support same-sex marriage.
Only 15 percent of the respondents said they are “very likely” or somewhat likely to support the decision, while 36 percent said they “somewhat likely.”
The APO poll also revealed that a whopping 77 percent of Republicans believe that abortion should be legal, compared not just with Democrats (74 percent) but with independents (74).
The survey found that Americans generally believe that religion is the “root cause” of social problems, and the majority believe that “religious beliefs” can have a positive effect on society.
The National Center for Science Education reported in February that in 2016, there were 2.5 million fewer American college graduates than there were in 2007.
The number of students graduating from college with bachelor’s degrees declined by 5.6 percent in 2016.
The decline was primarily due to a decline in the number of graduating students who were enrolled in undergraduate colleges, and a corresponding increase in students who had dropped out of college.
More than 3.5 percent of graduates dropped out, according to the National Center.
A report from Pew Research found that 47 percent of adults ages 18 to 34 believed that homosexuality is a sin, compared for instance, 32 percent of millennials and 20 percent of baby boomers.
The same Pew survey found in 2014 that there were fewer than 1.4 million people who identify as religiously
