    What do you think about the new Pew study on religion? (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/25334489/) Of 35,000 respondants, Americans overhelmingly believe in God or a spiritual being.  What I find interesting is that 70% of people said that many religions lead to eternal life.  Also, 74% believe in heaven while 59% believe in hell. 
    Here is a good visual of survey results  http://usatoday.com/news/graphics/2008_ … /flash.htm

    Personally, I think it is great that people appear to be more tolerant of other religions.  What do you think?

        It was also interesting to note that most so called athiests did believe in god and did not really understand the meaning of athiest.Taking this into consideraton the percentage of believers is more.

            I have travelled America especially the easy coast a lot and came across many people who were strong believers in the church and God.
