Fewer People Believe in God

| |

A poll conducted last February by the Guttman Center for Surveys of the Israel Democracy Institute shows a rise in the proportion of Israelis who define themselves as religious Jews, yet the world is heading in the other direction.

The latest Gallup poll the results of which were published on Monday show that 59% percent of the world’s population labeled itself religious, a 9% drop from previous surveys.

The poll, titled “The Global Index of Religiosity and Atheism” included over 59,000 people from 57 nations, Israel not included. Each person was asked the following question “Irrespective of whether you attend a place of worship or not, would you say that you are a religious person, not a religious person, or an atheist?”

Results show that alongside the 59% “religious”,23% define themselves as “non religious”; 13% as “atheists” and 5% “without definition.”
