Editor’s remarks: The priestly classes have shown the gods to their flocks and followers since the dawn of human history. And Lo! The flocks ‘know’ what the priests say is true. As a result some see the gods, some feel the gods and everybody is happy; the priests, the gods and the flocks! You see, the magic of gods works!! I say to all atheists, agnostics, sceptics, humanists and freethinkers: Get rid of all your arguments, your ungodly knowledge, your false books, your false philosophers! Gently close your eyes and find your way to the nearest priests who will open your mind’s eyes and you’ll see what you thought did not exist!
They are sending missionaries to eastern Germany. A recent study called Beliefs About God Across Time and Countries found that 52.1% of people asked whether they believed in God identified themselves as atheists. This compared with only 10.3% in western Germany. Indeed, the survey was unable to find a single person under the age of 28 in eastern Germany who believed in God. Obviously there are some – I think I may have even met some once – but the survey was unable to find them. On the face of it this is an extraordinary finding and it is something that needs some careful explanation.
