Most Norwegians are apparently atheists

Independent newspaper article:

Majority of Norwegians 'do not believe in God' for first time in country's history

It should have asked "do you believe in "God" construed as some kind of all-embracing awareness or intelligence lying behind all things as a whole".

In the poll by the Independent, 70% of readers vote that it's a positive change for fewer and fewer people to believe in a God. Are they being serious?? More than 2/3rds of people think that it's a positive change thinking that the Universe and all it contains is simply a brute fact and that the Universe and all our lives are purposeless and ultimately absurd? It's not as if we even have any good reasons to believe such a thing.
