“Nones—Americans who profess no religious affiliation—now make up 15 percent of the population. Given their rapid growth, their numbers might soon surpass the nation’s largest denominations. But get this:  Twenty-four percent [of Nones] say they believe in ‘a higher power but no personal God,’ the belief system that used to be described as Deism. They don’t believe in Scripture, or cotton to organized religion. But in the privacy of their home, they think that the distant, aloof God occasionally checks in to listen to their prayers.”

Beliefnet founder Steven Waldman, quoted in The Wall Street Journal
