German teens split on God, astrology

More than half of German teenagers put their faith in astrology – almost the same percentage as who believe in God, according to a news survey Wednesday.

The survey of 12- to 16-year-olds by Iconkids & Youth Institute showed 54 percent believe in horoscopes. Similarly, 58 percent of them believe in God.

Those findings applied only to western Germany, the pollsters pointed out. Interestingly, belief in astrology as well as in God was only about 36 percent among teens in eastern Germany, the survey showed.

“Believe in horoscopes is instilled in young people from an early age by the media,” pollster Ingo Barllovic said.
