Meet in the Middle (Apropos on a Sunday)

Lexington, Kentucky

Meaning?

There is the official statistic for atheism.

But there’s also a Bradley Effect which statistically conceals the true extent of atheism, so these researchers believe, and they think they have found a way to nuance and triangulate their way to a more accurate statistic.

I think the truth is somewhere in the middle.

I think what these researchers are actually seeing are people who are somewhat religious but also have lingering doubts.

Now I’m about to drop the mic, along with a profound tidbit of wisdom.

There aren’t that many true believers, and there aren’t that many true atheists.  A majority of believers aren’t quite as solid in their faith as they put on, and a majority of atheists have more theistic faith than they care to admit.

Whether we want to admit it or not, we tend to huddle around a moderate and small standard deviation level of faith and spirituality.
