Literal Truth
Somebody just shoot me now. Please.
Alabama and Arkansas came out on top as 75% say they believe the Bible is literally true. West Virginia (70%) and Tennessee (68%) are close behind.
Three possibilities: 1) Many don't know what "literally" means; 2) Many have not read the Bible; 3) Many live in a world so fantastical and filled with magic and the constant possibility of the divinely bizarre that it bears no resemblance (literally) to the world I live in.

If you are interested in reading the Bible, but don't really want to go through with it yourself, I can't recommend "Blogging the Bible" highly enough.
