But, look, what do you expect? the left refuses to acknowledge God, which leaves a big hole in their lives, which they fill with Obama. Not trying to dis them, that's just what they are doing.
I would wager that most people are in fact agnostic, but simply lack the public bravery to think it through and admit it to themselves and others.
Remember, the vast majority of religious people had religion burned into their brains as defenseless children under the undue influence of parents, grandparents and extended family. The case for the legitimacy of religion is heavily tainted as it most closely resembles cultism more than realism. It simply fails the logic test.
Well, an interesting question. As far as a vast majority having religion burned into their heads, probably just not so, though I hear that a lot from catholics in the Boston area. it is as if a bad explanation of faith taints the rest of us who have the idea straight. Maybe you are reflecting some problems of your own dealing with religion. If so, that's not good. Faith is meant to be helpful.
As far as what people are, based on a Pew poll 78% or so identify themselves as christian. It is an open question as to how many are christain as result of "undue influence" vs. coming to realize that jesus saves. Or, how many are really agnostic.
