Although figures vary for each country, average numbers indicate that roughly half of the people who self-identify as "nonreligious" also answer "yes" when asked if they believe in God or a Higher Power. Huh?

Ah, the spineless, bet-hedging 'I don't believe in organised religion but I do believe in some kind of higher power' brigade. I might get into zoroastrianism, cos its got the coolest name.

Nah, Buddhism is the one to go for. Non-theistic and philosophically coherent (to my mind).
