    Statistics show in the US that nearly half the population believe that Genesis is literally true. I believe that may be the figure for how many SAY that they believe that but deep down I highly doubt that even 10% believe it.
    Polls can be thoroughly misleading if you ask me.

    There is no shortage of atheists/agnostics in the world who count themselves as believers.

    You're selling heaven short. Not that I believe in it.

    Totally agree. Most of those polled probably don't understand much about what Genesis says and never really thought about it. A whole subset of them probably can't read very well either....

    What do they call religion? The opiate of the masses, keeping them under control. That's what it always was.
