Belief in Withcraft and Your Attitude to Life

A Gallup study in Sub-Saharan Africa shows that individuals who believe in witchcraft rate their lives worse than those who don’t. On a scale of 0 to 10, with 10 being the best possible life, those who believe in witchcraft rate their lives at a 4.3 on average, while those who do not believe or don’t have an opinion rate their lives higher on the scale, at 4.8 on average.

Generally, the lower the education level and household income, the more likely it is for a person to believe in witchcraft. Even among the most educated those who say they believe in witchcraft rate their lives worse than those who don’t. The poll also showed that on the average 55% of all residents in Sub-Saharan Africa believe in witchcraft. Ivory Coast tops the list of believers while Ugandans are the most skeptical of witches.

Before drawing any conclusions, for your information, in the US, 21% believe in witchcraft, 23% believe in ghosts, 25% believe in astrology, 41% believe Saddam Hussein was the mastermind or involved in 911, 20% believe the sun revolves around the moon (1999) and 58% of Republicans believe Pres. Obama was not born in the US. Such belief is the foundation of the Tea Party Movement and the Birthers.
