Here is a real story that offers some hope to atheists in America.
The percentage of Americans who treat the Bible as just another piece of literature or myth is rising according to the American Bible Society's survey of the State of the Bible.
Now there are just as many Americans skeptical of the Bible as there are engaged with the Bible.There's more to that first paragraph, but I just want to point out the obvious: You can be engaged with the Bible and be skeptical of it at the same time. I like reading about vampires (don't judge me!) and quite engaged in the genre, but at no point do I think the undead are really going about draining blood from victims.
