    the idea that this life only has value if the next exists, is a very scary thought.

    does that mean that if one faces hard evidence that the next life is a fraud, they will end this life?

    No its not common sense. If someone asks me if I believe in God, then they really are not being specific enough. You should have specified because now your poll numbers are wrong since I do not believe in the Abrahamic God. I believe in my own version of God, as many others here in the US do.

    there are 1 billion Muslims, 1 billion Catholics, and a few hundred million Protestants.

    that is less than half of the planet Earth.

    I would be shocked although there are a lot of kids in DP who probably don't but that will change once they grow older, mature, get married and have a family..
    Most of those questions are like yours, not specific enough.

    Do I believe in the DP for what crimes?
    Do I believe abortion <assuming> should be legal, under what specific circumstances?

    You do not have to believe in Jesus, the Bible, or any Abrahamic religion or God to believe in a soul or an afterlife.

    I think many young people are leaning toward agnosticism, rather than atheism. "I don't know if God exists or not." Although, I do think that many generally lean either more towards believing there is a God or more toward believing there isn't a God, rather than ending the sentence there.

    Actually, aren't those issue related? What is the issue related to belief in God?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Then it's your fault for not being specific about which God you were asking about. I believe in a God, I just don't believe in your God. The Abrahamic God is too petty and cruel for my beliefs.
