An interesting poll I stumbled across

I came across this poll:

The poll question is, “Do you believe there is a God?” As of this moment, 43% say yes, 42% say no, and 15% are unsure. Interesting numbers. For those saying no, 42% seems rather higher than usual. If this were an atheist site, or a religious site, I’d say well, the online atheists are “piling on,” and the numbers are distorted. But this is from a discussion site for which the primary focus is automobiles manufactured by Lotus.

You can check out the poll here: Do you believe there is a God?

What’s going on with these numbers? Maybe, since Lotus is a British company, a disproportionate amount of the members are British, and thus disproportionately irreligious (as compared to those in the U.S.) I don’t get the feeling that half the membership of that board is outside the U.S. though. Could it be that because it’s a forum about cars, the membership is disproportionately young? In that case, we’re winning, and religion is in trouble. I don’t know what’s up with those poll results, but in any case, Lotus makes some pretty cool cars.

The discussion of the poll is nothing special, about what you’d expect, if you’ve seen a lot of this sort of thing, though more like the discussion you’d see on an atheist site than one would expect for a site that’s about cars.

  1. Why do we call it ” Religion ” ?
