What the world thinks of G-O-D

Abiola points me to this BBC program about belief in God worldwide. There you can find the full survey (PDF).

Some interesting findings (for me anyway):

Country/% Belief in God/% Religion is a crutch for the "weak minded"/% My God is the only true God

US/86/10/51
UK/56/14/31
India/96/37/60
Nigeria/99/16/94
Lebanon/98/2/94

Notice something strange? Hindus are different!

(84% of South Koreans think that religion is a crutch for the "weak minded," though 25% converted to a belief in God at some point in their life!)
