Literal belief in the Bible down, but still 28%

So while one in four Americans are still completely disconnected from reality, at least it’s not as bad as it once was.

According to a recent survey by the Gallup Poll, 28 percent of Americans believe the Bible is literally true, compared to 38 percent 30 years ago. The survey was conducted among 1,002 adults, aged 18 or older. Nearly half, 49 percent, said the Bible was the “inspired word of God,” while 19 percent called it an “ancient book of fables.” Only 3 percent had no opinion.

Honestly, I’m not sure if this qualifies as good news or bad news.
