Do you think that many theists are in fact not theist at all?
I think many theists are really agnostic ie they are far from certain that God exists and skeptical about many of the claims their religion makes.
I have seen surveys where a significant proportion of people say they are a member of a religion but are not sure if there is life after death.
says 85 percent of protestants believe in life after death.
This means 15 percent of protestants are members of the religion but don't believe its most basic tenets.
