'Nothing in particular'

It’s not atheists who make up the largest group in the U.S. (some 5 percent of the population) who say they don’t believe in God or a universal spirit, according to a Pew Research Center survey.

People who selected “nothing in particular” make up 35 percent of nonbelievers, atheists 24 percent and agnostics, 15 percent.

Another 14 percent of respondents who counted themselves among the nonbelievers also said they were Christian.
