Americans have folklore. They believe in things like "Freedom" and "the economy".
>>
>>54083874
I'm from New England. Since its one of the oldest parts of the country, we actually have some pretty neat folklore. There's the headless horseman and Ikabod Krane, as well as the Salem witches which are based off of true events, and lots of tall tales about pioneers and folk heroes like Johnny Appleseed and Paul Bunyan the giant lumberjack. It's pretty comfy.

UFO doesn't necessarily mean alien. Most people here acknowledge that they're just experimental government aircraft who's existence hasn't been made public yet. Not an unreasonable assumption. For years people in the southwest claimed to see a strange black angular bat - like plane over the deserts of AZ & NM. It turned out later to the B2 stealth bomber.

"Even with these recent changes the American religious commitments are incredibly stronger than in most other advanced countries in the world," Putnam says. "The average American is slightly more religious than the average Iranian, so we are a very religious country even today."
