How could 8% more believe in mythical angels then believe in hell? What the hell is wrong with people?

Everyone knows Angels dance around on the heads of pins, and pins are right in front of you, if you have one right in front of you. Where is hell? Doesn't seem to be south anymore, it gets cold there, maybe down? no one's ever been that far, but people have seen pins.

I don't think this poll could possibly accurate. I know I don't just happen never to talk to 94% of Americans. Furthermore, in reality, it is way way easier and often more convenient for an Atheist to say he believes in god than the other way around, even on a poll. And, most Atheists wouldn't take the time to finish that poll..... ie click mmmmmmmmm. whereas religous people have a vested interest in telling other people that they are religous. I know a respected polling group like Gallup is always trying to find the wording of a question that most accurately describes how the people en mass feel (sarcasm) but between vested interests, ignorance of what the poll results mean (notice the question was asked do you believe god "does not exist" whereas, "do you believe in god?" would get different responses, and, in reality the answeres "no" and "maybe" both equal no to the last question since not affirming = not believing) and incorrectly assuming an even distributiton of people responding vs. not responding, they are far far far out on that limb.

And most Americans take Bible stoires (such as Creation) literally

It's very scary, really. I want to have hope in people... but when they are so friggin irrational, it's very hard.

i remember this figure of 94% about 10 years ago, or maybe it was 96%. I'm very dissaapointed that it hasn't changed but 10 years is a short time. but anyway that 1% that say they are sure that god does not exist are ovbiousely morons...and i hope no one in here think that...i mean ur in a poker forum!!! give it odds sohnnnn!!

and i hate the noncommital attitude of americans... if you're going to believe in god (as long as it is a specific god) then go to church and try to live a holy life. I mean, I'm a non-believer, but everyone wants all of the reward and none of the sacrafice..
