But this atheist group is FALSY ADVERTISING! They are saying that there are 1 million in atheists in New York when there are not! Now this 1 million people may well be listed under the NONES or ‘‘NON RELIGIOUS’’ Category, but that by no means mean that they are atheists.
As stated in this article, as of September 22nd 2009, ‘‘Nones may best be described as skeptics. Twenty-seven percent of Nones believe in a personal God. Hard and soft agnostics make up 35 percent of the None population and atheists account for only 7 percent of Nones. Contrary to what many believe, Nones are not particularly superstitious or partial to New Age beliefs. They are, however, more accepting of human evolution than the general U.S. population.’’
That means that the majority of the people in the NONES, ‘‘Non Religious’’ category believe in a Personal God. The minority of that group is athiest!
27% of 1 million is 270,000 people! That is 270,000 that believe in a personal God in New York, who are listed under the NONES, or ‘‘Non Religious’’ category. But this atheist organization is listing these people as atheists!
You also have to take out all the Deists, Pantheists etc. from that Non-Religious 1 million. They are not atheists either.
It’s false advertising/false statistics on the part of this atheist group!
