Most of the world is awash in religious fervour.
The world’s most populous country, the United States, has a huge population of atheists, agnostics, and freethinkers.
In Britain, where the government has historically prided itself on being more secular, only 37% of people say they are Christian, while the same proportion says they are atheist or agnostic.
The Economist magazine also surveyed the religious attitudes of 2,000 adults, and found that about a quarter of Americans (24%) say they’re religious, while about a third (33%) say religion doesn’t matter to them.
Among other things, this means that only about 1% of Americans are religious in the sense that they attend church on a regular basis, according to the survey.
(In 2016, the survey found that the same percentage of Americans said religion didn’t matter.)
The Economist also asked Americans how religious they were, and they were very, very religious, with nearly half of them reporting a religious affiliation of either “very” or “somewhat”.
Only 14% said they were non-religious.
The religious data isn’t surprising, as religion is a relatively small part of Americans’ lives, and the survey showed that nearly all Americans have a religious background.
But the question of which religion is the biggest in the United State doesn’t seem to have much meaning when it comes to identifying who is most religious, since the survey didn’t ask how religious Americans are.
As we’ve reported before, the US Census Bureau recently released a report showing that religious Americans tend to be older, white, and male.
The researchers also found that atheists and agnostics are more likely to be Republicans and Republican-leaning.
The most religious Americans were also the least likely to say they were practicing a particular religion.
The next most religious were Catholics, Mormons, Muslims, and Buddhists.
The least religious were Protestants, Seventh-day Adventists, Mormons and Seventh-days.
