    Gallup: Poll Finds Americans' Belief in God Remains Strong

    By E&P Staff

    NEW YORK A new Gallup survey released today finds that four decades after the "God Is Dead" controversy was first noted, Americans retain a strong belief in a higher power. Some 94% think God exists.

    Only 5% feel God "does not exist" -- and even most of them "are not sure" of that. Exactly 1% are certain there is no God.

    But how strongly do the believers believe? Nearly 8 in 10, in fact, say they are "convinced" God exists, although Gallup does not ask them why that is.

    Conservatives are more likely to be convinced than liberals (87% vs. 61%), women a little more likely than men (82% vs. 73%), and residents of the South more than those in the East (88% vs. 70%).

    Surprisingly, some 61% of those who seldom or never attend church are nevertheless convinced that God exists.

    Sure, most people believe in God, but they haven't done anything with Christ.
