Interesting Links for 05-11-2014


Turns out that British Christians are, mostly, not religious.

Some interesting points from a poll by Survation.
Over half of respondents (52%) said religion does more harm than good in society with 24% saying it does more good than harm.

Perhaps as a result, only 6% said that atheists are less likely to be moral people than religious people.

61% described themselves as ‘not religious’ and 39% as either ‘very’ or ‘somewhat’ religious.

60% of those who told us they are Christian also described themselves as ‘not religious’ and only 12% described themselves as ‘very religious’.
Interestingly, people under 35 are the most religious. I wonder what the explanation for that is.
