Losing Faith

Sixty-percent of Americans identify themselves as religious compared to 73 percent in 2005, according to a recent poll conducted by WIN-Gallup International. Additionally, the number of people who identified with atheism, the disbelief in religious deities, saw an increase to 5 percent from 1 percent in 2005.  (Photo: Lawren / Getty Images)
