    I will try to make a serious point amidst my laughter.

    Surely this survey explains alot about the simplicity of thinking and the extreme backwardness of the american public.

    Americans seem to want everything to be black and white... no reality or truth..just keep things simple.

    I also find it extremely funny that more americans believe in Hell than Heaven... thus confirming that the US is a land of fear and hatred.

    I would love to see a comparative study done in Europe.. i wouldnt expect more than 10% of europeans to say they believed in such stone age, superstitious simplicities.

    Very revealing indeed.

    He believes there is no moral up or down.

    Yet he pontificates on what is upside down.

    The devil is red and has horns and God has a big long white beard.

    May you burn in hell when I am floating on my fluffy cotton cloud.

    Yes I agree..believing in Heaven and Hell is retarded... however i wouldnt go so far as accusing Jesus freaks of being retards... that is a severe slur upon the mentallly ill!

    You seem like a reasonable fellow in many of your posts there MC...

    Why would you start a pointless thread like this one? Are you trying to piss Americans off? Are you sure you want to do that?

    So what you're saying is: you object to societies using imagery to pass along their culture in an age when only 10% of the population could afford a lettered education.

    If you asked the overwhelming masses of Christian thinkers throughout the ages if the thought of God as having a beard or Heaven being only a cloud they would dismiss the idea just as quickly as they would dismiss the idea that the throne of Heaven was actually a bejeweled chair. It seems your rage is based on you not being able to understand the simplest of concepts.

    But none of this belies the fact that you are the archtypical, self-contradicitng moralizing amoralist.

    So true. I never trust a poll, and another good reason is to learn about Frank Luntz.
