Atheists “are talking to a very small slice of the population,” said Mathew Staver, a leading Christian conservative and law-school dean. “In some ways, they’re really just talking to themselves.”
A poll by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life earlier this year found that just 5% of the American population flatly do not believe in God. If that doesn’t scare the living hell out of you, it should.
Think about it. Less than 15 million people, in the of the most powerful nation in the world, have ever had a single thought of their own about the true nature of their own existence. That’s millions upon millions of school teachers, teaching millions more of tomorrows voters, tax payers, lawyers and politicians, who have absolutely no concept of reality. Legions of army generals with a holy ghost on their shoulder every time they make a life or death decision. Police officers with only the words from a bronze age book of myths standing between them and their gun in crowd of protesting hippies and queers.
