Australians not willing to “just believe”
Critical reflection and questioning are significant components of contemporary Australian spirituality. Nearly half (49%) of Australians surveyed think we should strongly oppose the idea of “just believing”. More than half (54%) of all men surveyed think we should question our beliefs. Being willing to question and reflect on beliefs is associated with higher levels of education. Indecision is most evident among younger people.
