According to this article in the Age, a survey done in the past week shows Australians are becoming much more mix-n-match with their belief systems. The story’s quite interesting, looking at the percentages of people surveyed who believe in a God, and other things, like UFOs, extrasensory perception, astrology, heaven and hell.
This part of the article tickled my fancy:
“The 50 per cent of the population classified as Christian were also asked about their specific beliefs in Jesus. Ninety-four per cent believed he was a real person who lived 2000 years ago. And although 91 per cent believed he was the son of God, only 72 per cent think the mother of Jesus Christ was a virgin.”
This story focuses on a trend.
