A Miscellany 207
Organized Religion Losing Ground

Several wrote this week with links to news reports about the results of the American Religious Identification Survey 2008. Overall, the survey finds that organized religion is losing ground. As for the nonbeliever community:

It's an interesting finding, and to me it suggests that either people find the words atheist / agnostic / deist to have negative connotations, so won't apply them to themselves, or, they just don't know what they mean.

Thanks to Tweedy, Jorge, and Nigel for providing these newslinks to articles about the survey. They provide a selection of perspectives.
