In the latest poll in our ‘Underground Knowledge’ group on the popular literary site Goodreads.com we ask members: Do you believe in God? Given the number of declared atheists in the group, the interim results are surprising.

To date, 72% of poll respondents say Yes (I believe in God); 16% say No (I am an atheist); and 12% say Undecided (I am an agnostic).

It should be pointed out, the question (Do you believe in God) asked in the poll is qualified by the following: “This word doesn’t just include the Christian deity or other religious versions but any concept of God such as non-religious ‘spiritual’, New Age definitions or quantum physics/scientific theories of God).”

Comments received by poll respondents make for interesting reading. Here’s a random sample. (Names withheld)…

Yep….believe in God. BUT…..I’d sure as hell, (oops, sorry God) believe even more if I’d hit the damn lottery after praying sooooo hard. Just sayin.’ 

.

Yes, I believe in the Lord God Creator, Maker of Heaven and Earth, unlike the author of the previous post, who prefers to sell his soul to Lucifer, the Fallen Angel. Many people do not believe in intelligent design, but several of my articles point not only to intelligent design and cosmology but a timetable to world events.

.

Yes, I am a believer, but I don’t believe on that simple description of the Great Engineer, like it is depicted in the Big Books. 

.

Best description would be that I believe in a Mathematical Entity, void of any mental abilities or identity. Completely non Anthropomorphic.

.

If you are to consider a fruit bearing tree, you would have a good idea of how I perceive life, and the universe. Interesting, that a single bud of an early spring, may lead to a great tree, hundreds of years old, which produces many fruits, is it not? All is fractal, Brahman is everything.

.

My God’s name is NOT Muhammad. My God spreads love and allows me to live my life to it’s fullest. 

.

But what about the Islamic members of this group, Xxxxxx? Do you love them too? 🙂

    Those results are surprising and not surprising at the same time. It is amazing to me how many people will declare themselves atheist but at the slightest confrontation, will have uncertainty about whether to believe in a deity or controlling force or whatever. So many people lack the courage of their convictions
