Ed Brayton had an interesting post today on FTB (Freethought Blogs). It's about a scholarly study of secularism (life without gods). It told me something I didn't know. Here's an excerpt that lays it out:
Secularists make up some 15 percent of the global population, or about 1 billion people. As a group, this puts them third in size behind Christians (2.3 billion) and Muslims (1.6 billion).Hoo boy! We're huge! And our group is growing larger every day. All of you: go out, blaspheme and enjoy! Life is great without gods.
