The Evil Atheist Conspiracy is Working!

Not a big surprise but atheism is on the rise according to the American Religious Identification Survey. This is one of their key findings.
Only1.6 percent of Americans call themselves atheist or agnostic. But based on stated beliefs, 12 percent are atheist (no God) or agnostic (unsure), while 12 percent more are deistic (believe in a higher power but not a personal God). The number of outright atheists has nearly doubled since 2001, from 900 thousand to 1.6 million. Twenty-seven percent of Americans do not expect a religious funeral at their death.

Pretty cool right? More over at Pharyngula
