In the United States between 6 and 12% of the total population are atheist or agnostic depending on the poll. In Western Europe the percentage is much higher 20% in the UK, 33% in France, 25% in Germany. There are exceptions, only 3% in Greece and Portugal. Only 1% of Polands population are atheist. At this point in this poll 108 votes have been placed. 59 believers and 49 non believers. Why do you suppose that the percentage of atheist/agnostics is 45.37% so far on this forum? Is there something about a political forum that attracts atheist? 45% is high considering atheist are such a small percentage of the overall population. And another thing why does it seem that atheist are so hostile towards people who believe in god?
