Adapted from Secular Right, here's a graph showing frequency of prayer plotted against strength of partisanship. The data is from the General Social Survey. Apparently, strong political partisans also tend to pray a lot. Weak partisans and independents, not so much. The effect is roughly the same if you confine the analysis to whites only.
He draws no conclusions. I draw no conclusions. I toddled over to Secular Right to see just where the fuck this information came from, and it turns out there's a nifty little site where you can draw on General Social Survey data to create your own charts and graphs. Secular Right even has a little tutorial on how to use it. I'm not intrigued enough to spend the rest of my evening trying to figure out how sound the data is - I'm wanting to crawl into bed with the cat and start in on A Brief History of Time, which is going to be brain exercise enough.
One thing I won't be doing is praying, even though, according to the graph, being a fairly strong Dem at this point means I'm in a distinct minority.
Back when I was still a nominal believer, I used to pray I'd somehow understand A Brief History of Time. Praying did jack diddly shit for me. Let's see if several years' worth of reading science has led to a better result. I somehow suspect that shall prove to be the case.
And if some wag starts smirking over how my prayer was finally "answered," I shall give them a right sharp ding round the earhole.
