Religion in the US

This week the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life released the US Religious Landscape survey, which has shown some interesting results:
:: 70 percent of Americans (surprisingly 57% of evangelicals), affiliated to a religion - agree that many roads lead to eternal life
:: 21% of Atheists believe in god. Does this mean that Atheism is not a theological statement, but rather a form of self-identity.
:: 49% of men say religion is very important in their lives - while 63% of women did.
I wonder if a survey of the religious landscape in Australia, would draw similar conclusions.

    I'd say it means 21% of atheists don't know what agnosticism is.
