Does God Exist? What Americans Believe

New poll results demonstrate once again that belief in God is wide and deep in the United States. Performed by Gallup, the poll shows the following:

94% of Americans believe God exists.

8 out of 10 of believers are "convinced" that God exists, demonstrating a high degree of certitude.

5% of Americans believe that God does not exist. But only 1% of Americans are certain there is no God. "Hard" atheism, it would seem, is proportionally much weaker than "hard" theism.

Given these results, which are hardly a deviation from other polls, it seems that America remains a religious country to the extent that belief in God indicates religious belief. Given the high number of "convinced" believers in God, it would seem that faith in God is deep as well as widely held.

Atheists, though zealously activist on the internet, make up a very small portion of the U.S. population.
