      THOSE 'CERTAIN' THAT GOD EXISTS DROPPING
      http://www.breitbart.com/news/2006/10/31/061031235233.s0l4o4wy.html


      AGENCE FRANCE PRESSE - Nearly half of Americans are not sure God
      exists, according to a poll that also found divisions among the public
      on whether God is male or female or whether God has a human form and
      has control over events. The survey conducted by Harris Poll found
      that 42 percent of US adults are not "absolutely certain" there is a
      God compared to 34 percent who felt that way when asked the same
      question three years ago.

      Among the various religious groups, 76 percent of Protestants, 64
      percent of Catholics and 30 percent of Jews said they are "absolutely
      certain" there is a God while 93 percent of Christians who describe
      themselves as "Born Again" feel certain God exists. When questioned on
      whether God is male or female, 36 percent of respondents said they
      think God is male, 37 percent said neither male nor female and 10
      percent said "both male and female." Only one percent think of God as
      a female, according to the poll.

      Asked whether God has a human form, 41 percent said they think of God
      as "a spirit or power that can take on human form but is not
      inherently human." As to whether God controls events on Earth, 29
      percent believe that to be the case while 44 percent said God
      "observes but does not control what happens on Earth".

      The survey was conducted online between October 4 and 10 among 2,010
      US adults.
