Teenagers and dating history
Only three out of 10 teenagers believe in an afterlife and 41 per cent believe that nothing happens to your body when you die, but one in 10 reckon they come back as an animal or another human being.
A Church of England spokesman said: "Many teenagers aren't sure what they believe at that stage of their lives, as is clear from the number who said they don't know whether they believe in God.
Kevin Brooks, the author, said: "I can't say I am surprised by the teenagers' responses.
"Part of the reason that I wrote Killing God was that I wanted to explore the personal attitudes of young people today, especially those with troubled lives, towards organised religion and the traditional concept of God.
"On the other hand many of these results point to the great spirituality of young people today that the Church is seeking to respond to through new forms of worship alongside tradition ones." Hanne Stinson, chief executive of The British Humanist Association, said: "It confirms that young people - like adults - do not need a religion to have positive values.
But it's like anything else – there's a way to do it successfully, and it's a great way to meet people you wouldn't normally meet.
But if you won’t go outside your comfort zone, I can pretty much assure you that nothing’s going to change.
There a couple of things one can do to meet people, particularly if over 40. Eat out, grab coffee, and hang out at different places each week.
Ancient adolescents lived in a very different world than today.
From the time of prehistory to New World colonies, some lived extraordinary lives.
