More data please

The initial results of the religion and paternal age survey have been intriguing, so much so that it may justify a more methodical investigation into the hypothesis. However, we need a bit more information in order to tease out the strength of an effect called the demographic confound.

So, if you don't mind answering the following questions, please do so, but keep the following instructions in mind: Answer only for yourself. Not your siblings, your children, or your parents. Also, Anonymous responses will not be counted.

Name. (Not real name, just make something up so we can keep things straight.)
Birth year.
Age of father at birth
Age of mother at birth
Sex (M/F)
Parents married through age 18 (Y/N)
Strength of belief on the Spectrum of Theistic Probability. (1-7). The milestones are as follows:

1. Strong theist. 100 per cent probability of God. In the words of C.G. Jung: "I do not believe, I know."
2. De facto theist. Very high probability but short of 100 per cent. "I don't know for certain, but I strongly believe in God and live my life on the assumption that he is there."
3. Leaning towards theism. Higher than 50 per cent but not very high. "I am very uncertain, but I am inclined to believe in God."
4. Completely impartial. Exactly 50 per cent. "God's existence and non-existence are exactly equiprobable." Agnostic.
5. Leaning towards atheism. Lower than 50 per cent but not very low. "I do not know whether God exists but I'm inclined to be skeptical."
6. De facto atheist. Very low probability, but short of zero. "I don't know for certain but I think God is very improbable, and I live my life on the assumption that he is not there."
7. Strong atheist. "I know there is no God, with the same conviction as Jung knows there is one."


Science thanks you for your assistance.

-------------------
Vox, you are on the right goal but wrong substance. The Enlightenment was mostly a movement of atheists. In noticing the movers and shakers, none of them except J.S. Mills, had a father connection. They lived lives of roaming (leaving home early), their father died early, non-existent childhood. It is obvious to me that atheists have father issues. But I don't think it is age related but the lack of - or abusive relationship with father.

I actually debated answering 1 or 2 because I don't like speaking in absolutes. Could there be no God? Theoretically Yes, but I don't see how. Is there no God? The chances are vanishingly small. 5 9's or better.

I agree with Paul on this, "If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable."

He was 10 years older at the time of their marriage, 12 years older as the time of Savant's conception, and is now 23 years older than the mother of his son.

And I'm with ridip on the last answer. But even though my fears are fleeting and ridiculous given the gifts I've experienced, I do still have my moments of doubt.
