Not interesting: A Christian group (The Alpha Course) put up an online survey asking visitors if they believed in God.
Not interesting: The poll was crashed by atheists.
Not interesting: Atheists won, and the poll overwhelmingly swung in our favor (Most respondents said, “No,” God doesn’t exist).
Interesting: This is news to anybody.
More than 88,000 responded to the posters and adverts.
But embarrassingly the poll on the Christian website backfired with a massive 96 PER CENT insisting there was no God – and only three per cent saying they did believe.
Alpha chiefs last night blamed a web sting for the response.
Spokesman Mark Elsdon-Dew added: “I don’t think this is indicative of people’s faith in this country.”
So the accuracy factor may be off…
In the meantime, I’ll settle for the amusement factor.
