22. I don't think you can extrapolate much by looking at people under 30

They called us older Boomers "godless," after all, since we preferred sex and drugs and rock and roll to sitting in the pews of some stiff suburban church. However, among my own friends, some dropped back into going to church when they hit their late 30s and early 40s when their kids got old enough to beg to be taken. Even fellow atheists who still don't believe a word of it have continued to go after their kids have left home because of the community they found there.
