Let's just hope that America checks her text messages, I'm sure our inbox is still full from the Bush era.

Let's hope we survive this one. The ante has been raised with the advent of nuclear weapons. They beat the shit out of sword's-point conversion, but no converts are to be gained that way, just dead people.

There are already some pretty good examples of how it 'works out'.

Most of the countries with the highest percentage of atheists in their population, have: among the lowest crime rates, poverty rates, highest education levels, lowest infant mortality, maximum freedoms, and more. They are also among the happiest countries in the world.

A person in Denmark has a much better chance for real upward mobility than someone in the US.

The USA has a murder rate of 4.88 per 100,000. Sweden is 1.15 per 100,000. The US is about 85% Christian, Sweden is about 80% atheist. Norway's murder rate is about .56 per 100,000. They are about 70% atheist. Netherlands murder rate is about .71 per 100K. They are about 44% atheist. Hell, even Vietnam, at 80% atheist, has a murder rate of 1.52 per 100K.

The top 10 happiest countries in the world, all have a substantially higher percentage of atheist, than the USA for example.

So, the experiment has already been done. We win!

Go team!!!  Hey, we’re the “A” Team!


Thank you; I’m here all week.
There's no light in the tunnel, no irons in the fire;
Come on up to the house.
And your singing lead soprano in a junkman's choir;
You got to come on up to the house.

The world is not my home; I’m just a-passin’ through.
You gotta come on up to the house.

I thought us smart British folk were nearly 50% atheist? None's that is. Yes I know there is much slaver as to what a 'None' is but fuck it, I am not willing to consider the possibility that a None can be anything other than an atheist.

YMMV.
It's amazing 'science' always seems to 'find' whatever it is funded for, and never the oppsite. Drich.

I don't think atheism necessarily means a country is going to prosper. China is the most atheistic country in the world but it is still a developing country.

42% non religious in NZ.

And that was at the last census 5 years ago.

THere's another happening now (which I have to do before the end of tomorrow...)
