Traditional religion is still the bedrock of America, with "very large majorities" of the public steadfast in their belief in God and the birth and Resurrection of Jesus Christ -- with belief in astrology, ghosts and other New Age hallmarks lagging behind.
Overall, 82 percent of Americans believe in God, according to a recent Harris poll, which also revealed that 73 percent also believe in miracles, 70 percent in life after death, 70 percent in the existence of heaven, and 70 percent that Jesus is the Son of God. In addition, 68 percent believe in angels and 66 percent in the Resurrection of Christ.

The question is not whether one believes in God; for everyone -- including the "atheist" -- believes in god. (The atheist thinks himself a god.) Most others believe God to be of a perverse nature such as their own nature, Psalm 50:16-21:
16 But to the sinner God has said, Why dost thou declare my ordinances, and take up my covenant in thy mouth? 17 Whereas thou hast hated instruction, and hast cast my words behind thee. 18 If thou sawest a thief, thou rannest along with him, and hast cast in thy lot with adulterers. 19 Thy mouth has multiplied wickedness, and thy tongue has framed deceit. 20 Thou didst sit and speak against thy brother, and didst scandalize thy mother's son. 21 These things thou didst, and I kept silence: thou thoughtest wickedly that I should be like thee, but I will reprove thee, and set thine offences before thee.
The question is, in which god does one believe. Few believe in the God of the Scripture -- the God and Father of our Lord, Christ Jesus.
Regardless what the polls say, the majority of the US does not believe in God. If they did, the country would not be in the shape it is today. People who claim they believe in God and do nothing to stop the laws that are being passed to advance sinful lifestyles both in the church and out, truly do not believe in Him or they would take a stand. They would be fearful of the judgment of their sins.
Most who say they believe in God are described by Jesus when He addressed the woman at the well, 'Ye worship ye know not what.'
