American millennials are significantly less likely to believe in the existence of God and the authority of the Bible, a new survey has found.
The American Worldview Inventory survey from Arizona Christian University discovered that millennials, following the lead of Generation X, are rejecting more traditional religious practices and affiliations in favor of “other beliefs” like horoscopes. The Cultural Research Center at ASU conducted the poll, which surveyed 2,000 adults with a “plus-or-minus 2 percentage points” margin of error. According to the Kansas City Star:
“The survey defines millennials as individuals born between 1984 and 2002 and members of Generation X born from 1965 to 1983.
Those generations are exceedingly more likely to have different spiritual beliefs than those in the baby boomer and builder age groups. Baby boomers are defined as those born from 1946 to 1964 and the builder generation as those born from 1927 to 1945.”
