I saw the newscast this screen shot was part of. The guy in the picture said something like "most Americans say they believe in God. Spiritual but not religious Americans believe in God more as a force of nature than a person." I think that was more or less the gist of it anyhow.

My personal feeling is that the European thing about God on his throne in heaven being some abstract version of the sovereign on his/her throne here just isn't American. I know some English-Americans that are just fascinated by whatever the Queen is involved with, but I just don't get it. Don't get me started on whatever the relationship is between the Catholics and their Pope is supposed to be. As for the laws of physics, I'm convinced that Helium is an inert gas. I'm hoping inert means to you about what it means to me, dear reader.
