Search Engine Statistics

We will have reached a significant milestone when "Spiritual Atheism" and "Non-literal Theism" have been added to every major dictionary in the world. Since words/terms are added to a dictionary on the basis of actual usage alone, I have chosen to use the three most popular internet search engines (as of 2005) as an effective and efficient way of tracking our progress. As you will discover below, Spiritual Atheism is doing pretty well; but Non-literal Theism is slow going. Ultimately, though, I measure success by how many people use either of these terms to classify themselves (as opposed to Theist, Atheist, or Agnostic).

Awareness of Spiritual Atheism is spreading very quickly.
The numbers below give an indication of how far we've come.
(Unfortunately, I didn't think about creating a baseline until 2005;
so this baseline was created after several years of work.)
