Number of the Day

20%: The number of USians who now "say they are not part of a traditional religious denomination," according to new data from the Pew Research Center.

Not all of that 20% is godless. Some are atheist; some are agnostic; some are god-believers or spiritualists who are unaffiliated with organized religion; etc.

Younger USians are even more irreligious: One-third of adults under 30 say they are they are atheist, agnostic, or "nothing in particular."
