(CNN) – A new survey finds more young people have some doubts about the existence of God.

According to the Pew Research Center, 68 percent of Americans 30 and younger say they never doubt God’s existence.

That’s a 15 percent drop from just five years ago, when 83 percent said the same.

A spokesman for the Secular Student Alliance says the internet has opened a way for young people to discuss their religious doubts and inspire others to do the same- without fear of  backlash from their parents or community.
