Quote from: xenu on February 03, 2023, 11:30:12 AMI never liked that survey "No religious Affiliation. It says nothing about if they believe in a god or not. Unless I am not seeing something in the survey

It does seem like the "nones" are packing their numbers by saying "unless you're a member of a church, you're one of us". A better designed survey would be interesting, but people are obviously getting more comfortable with publicly stating they're not explicitly religious.
Amend and resubmit.

It is the same in the Australian Census, which has had a question on Religiosity in every Census. But only since 1971 has there been a specific box for "No Religion"

Very slowly have people become comfortable in marking that box.
In 2021 "No Religion" accounted for 38.9%. The highest figure for any "Religion" in the Census. Catholics were next best at 20.0%

My own State recorded 49.9% as "No Religion".

QuoteLiquid oxygen is around a thousand times denser than gaseous oxygen. It is highly used in the science and medical sectors. It is nonflammable and extremely cold. The oxygen that has been compressed into liquid form is known as liquid oxygen. It contains two unpaired electrons due to which it is highly paramagnetic in nature. The two unpaired electrons create magnetic asymmetry due to which red light is absorbed in the visible spectrum. Due to absorption of red color, the characteristic color of liquid oxygen becomes pale blue.
