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
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.
