The new Baylor Religion Survey shows that about 20 percent of Americans believe that God is actively engaged in the daily workings of the world, and have an economic conservative view that opposes government regulation, USA Today reports. "They say the invisible hand of the free market is really God at work," said sociologist Paul Froese, co-author of the survey. Eighty-one percent of political conservatives say there is one "ultimate truth in the world, and new economic information of cost-benefit analysis is not going to change their mind about how the economy should work," Froese said. On the flip side, another 20 percent of Americans believe that God does not operate in their daily lives, and they favor reducing wealth and inequality through taxation.
