CWN Editor's Note: “Though religious belief in the general population tends to fall with increased education, that phenomenon does not explain or account for the observed magnitude of the differences,” according to James Lindgren, professor of law at Northwestern University. “While 24% of law professors say that they ‘don’t believe in God’ and another 18% ‘don’t know whether God exists,’ among those in the general population who have graduate and professional degrees, only 5.4% do not believe in God and 10.4% do not know whether God exists.”
