New Harris Poll

Wow. Read the article.

The poll gives us some information worth delving into. I found interesting the demographics that do believe in God:

  • “People with no college education (62 percent) or who have some college education (57 percent) compared to college graduates (50 percent) and those with post-graduate degrees (53 percent)”
  • People in all age groups 40 and over compared to people in age groups under 40

Maybe the most amusing part: 10% of people believe God is a hermaphrodite.

“The public is almost equally divided between those who think of God as male (36%) and “neither male nor female” (37%), with 10 percent saying “both male and female.” Only one percent thinks of God as a female.”

Does that make any sense? If I were religious, I would think God would not have a gender… the idea of God being both genders seems alien to me. Any explanations?
