What if God was one of us?

Well, he probably wouldn't believe in himself if he was under the age of 30.

According Pew Research Center's 2014 Religious Landscape Study, only half of adults under the age of 30 say they believe in God and overall belief in God is dropping rapidly.

A large majority of Americans still believe in God (89 percent), but there is evidence that absolute certainty of God's existence is falling. It has fallen to 63 percent, down 8 points from 2007.

While there is a trend toward unaffiliation with God and religion, belief in God for certain groups has remained constant.

Evangelical Protestants, members of the historically black Protestant tradition and Muslims all still have high rates of absolute belief in God.

Our world still has hope of not turning into a Godless wasteland where horned creatures and demons roam the streets!

New Jersey Pastor Eric Dammann is using his fist to force God's will upon his people.

In a sermon that reportedly dates back to July but has recently gone viral, Damann says he met a kid named Ben in Calgary who was a "smart aleck."

He wasn't taking the Lord seriously, so he did what any peaceful man of God would do and knocked him to the ground.

"So I walked over to him and went, Bam! Punched him in the chest as hard as I could," he said. "I crumpled the kid. I just crumpled him."

He later apologized saying the clip was out of context.

"I do not endorse child abuse or the punching of children," he told The NY Daily News. "My intention in the sermon was to make a point of how God can use our mistakes. The viral clip does not show the whole sermon, where I say what I did was wrong."

God on Facebook, that is. The comedian behind God's very own Facebook page dropped for ad space in Topeka, KS, home of none other than the Westboro Baptist Church, everyone's favorite virulent homophobes. It may not win any converts or change anybody's opinions at the end of the day, but it's just so damned fun to mess with the WBC, and that makes it all worth it.
