Fair enough. My point stands.

PsiChick: The majority religion in the United States is Christianity. It's hard to say what percentage of American Christians are fundie


You keep saying this like it matters. Are you seriously saying that non-fundamentalist American Christians don't believe in angels? demons? miracles? prayer? an interventionist god? I'll give you that a majority does not seem to believe in speaking in tongues, but the minority that does is still significant.

THAT is the claim you appeared to make in that post I addressed. That is the claim I take issue with. I am not making any claims about what belief in such things might indicate. I am pointing out that your claim that such beliefs only belong to "fundies" is idiotic, and I provided at least some reports on poll data that suggests support for my position and undermines yours. You have provided nothing to support your idiotic claim nor anything to refute the information I provided.

PsiChick: The entire nation of India, for example, is Hindu. Do you think they believe in fundie!Christian angels and demons?


And what does this have to do with your claim that people who believe in angels, demons, miracles, prayer, and an interventionist god are, directly quoting from you, "a specific subset of Christian fundies."?

Do you have anything at all to support that statement besides your apparent discomfort that a rather large majority of Americans hold incredibly irrational beliefs?

Maybe I should have been clearer earlier--define 'believe in'. The person I replied to was talking about (I presume, anyway, since it's all that makes sense) an  illogical belief, one that  defies logic. Someone who believes in miracles may well go on to say they've never seen one in person--same for the rest of the list. They also may well give a critera for their belief and for proof that does fit logically.  That I believe is typical of Americans; people who  illogically believe that, say, finding their car keys was a miracle and the result of an interventionist god, are a minority.
