Religious ‘nones’ in America

Religious ‘nones’ in America


At Pew Research Center, we get lots of questions about religiously unaffiliated Americans – those who describe themselves as atheists, agnostics or “nothing in particular” when asked about their religion. What do religious “nones” believe? Are they opposed to religion? What are their views about God, morality and science? Our new report explores these and many other questions. Among its findings: “Nones” are not uniformly anti-religious and most believe in a higher power. Most nones reject the idea that science can explain everything. A new Short Read explores a related question: Has the decades-long growth of the share of U.S. “nones” come to an end?
