bulletComparison of conservative Protestant and Roman Catholic beliefs

* An AP survey in 1997 revealed that 24% of American adults expect to be still alive when Jesus returns. They probably believe that they will never experience death. This percentage has probably declined in recent years, because the massive Year 2000 disruption expected by many Americans fizzled, and the percentage of American adults who identify themselves as Christians has been declining. However, it might increase somewhat as the end of 2012 approaches and the widely expected disasters associated with the Winter Soltice that year also fizzle.
