How can so many people believe in God?
How can so many people believe in God? Why is the belief in God so prevalent? According to the CIA's World Fact Book (2001), only 2.44% of the world's population claim to be atheist, while another 12.53% are apathetic (or "non-religious").
So, why is a belief in the divine so prevalent? Here are two possibilities: (1) the human race is suffering from mass delusion, or (2) the human race instinctually acknowledges the divine.
Mass delusion or basic instinct? That question can only be answered by posing another -- Does God exist?
