Athiests are the second largest religious group in America

At 14%, after 79% for Christians, and 5% for "non-Christians". That's not the point of the
article, of course.

that's only 98%.

The remaining 2% were "Jews for Jesus" who did not fit neatly into any of the other categories.

are 14% really atheists or do they just have no religion? because only 10% of americans do not believe in heaven. its hard to fathom that 4% of atheists believe in heaven. according to the original article, 51% of those with no religion still believe in heaven. i think that some of these "no religion" people still belive in god. that or this poll is all sorts of fucked up.

89% believe in heaven
10% don't believe in heaven

of this total, 14% have no religion.

therefore, 10% are atheists and an additional 4% believe in heaven but have no religion. you can have no religion but still believe in god and/or heaven.

i just figured a lot of athiests were Belinda Carlisle fans.

Oooh baby do you know what that's worth?
Ooooh Heaven is a place on Earth
