Atheism explodes in Saudi Arabia, despite state-enforced banCaryle Murphy

I continue to be unimpressed with Salon.com's religion reporting. I'm not GetReligion.org, so I don't spend all my days on this subject, but their "find the crazy evangelical no one has heard of" strategy is just silly and they occasionally just go off the rails with articles showing how rape relates to evangelical youth conferences.

However, in this case, I will just ask one question: where is there any statistical evidence, beyond "I met a guy who said so," in this piece?
