Those are interesting results. Then again those who are thinking for themselves and actively learning tend to have fluxuating beliefs - and I would hate to think that someone has obstinate convictions at fifteen years old - in either direction, really. I wonder how many survey results change drastically year by year in this period of a person's life. And I think that's really a good thing.

So, it is as many say then. "It's education, stupid."
a·the·ism: The absence of belief in god(s)

There are no additional, claims, laws, commandments, rules, doctrines, presuppositions, stand alone ideologies, dogmas, and/or faith based beliefs required by or inevitably derived from atheism.

;)

Education isn't about learning what to think; it's about an individual learning how to think. When you've got that in hand, you've got the tools to think out things for yerselves. Even when faced with religon... and/or every hundreth untruth one is faced with on a daily basis.
