Christian beliefs in Australia

From today's SMH:

MORE than four in 10 Australians who do not consider themselves "born again"' still believe Jesus rose from the dead, while one in 10 does not believe he existed.

These were two of the surprising results from an independent survey of 2500 people, said noted author and church historian John Dickson, the co-director of the Centre for Public Christianity in Sydney.

The survey, to be published today, found that out of the 85 per cent who did not identify as born again - including those of other religions - 45 per believed in the resurrection.

I'm guessing that more detail will soon be on the CPX website.

UPDATE: Oh yeah, >forgot, thanks Lucy!
