Out of curiosity, where is your source for this quiz? I was really surprised to see Israel on the list.

This information is according a Gallup poll. The website I used was http://www.adherents.com/largecom/com_atheist.html I was also very surprised to see Israel on the list!

Thanks for taking the quiz!

I was also surprised that Israel was on the list. It's almost ironic considering how many religious wars were fought on and over that place.

I'm astonished that North Korea isn't on the list. And yeah, as a list of enlightened countries Israel doesn't really fit.

I'm guessing that Gallup didn't get information on North Korea. I'm sure that they are more atheist than South Korea. South Korea has a very large population of Christians, the largest in Asia outside of the Philippines. In regards to Israel, not surprised at all. The only way this would be surprising is if the polling methodology counted everyone who was Jewish as automatically religious, which they often do, disregarding that many Jews are not religious. In reality the country in many ways is very secular, quite "enlightened" and progressive, and though, yes, religion has been at the heart of every war fought against Israel in the last 65 years, this has really been more about the religion of Israel's neighbors than the religion of the Israelis.

got 100% on my first try, btw. and soon the USA will be on this list. They should already be ranked higher than Slovakia (10-28%). There are at least 10% of the population in the US that is atheist. Probably more like 17-25%, and if you count all of the people who self describe as "non-religious" or "other" but are afraid to use the word "atheist," that number shoots up more. Especially amongst the younger generation.

Atheism is just the disbelief in gods. You don't have to believe in any gods to practice Buddhism.

The quiz should be rephrased. The numbers include others such as Agnostics according to the source.

Would anyone explain why none of the poorest countries of Latin America, Africa and Asia, make the list? And why highly developed, egualitarian societies like Norway, Sweden and Denmark top it? Just curious... Religion = poverty, misery, suffering

It has to do with looking to a source to get motivation and hope. When you are struggling, you look for any avenue to provide you hope. Often when you struggle, you find yourselves struggling to gain motivation to do anything, and one looks for any positive motivation to continue with life in general. Most religions promise a good life and even a good afterlife in most prominent religions. This hope is useful to many and provides motivation to continue working for a better future. In most developed nations, many people realize this and in some cases may even have found alternatives to find hope and motivation other than looking into a motherly/fatherly figure who would help you through your struggles. Most become atheists/agnostics after their country becomes developed and/or they gain a good life as there is no longer a huge need for hope.

This particular quiz was created in 2012 and is maintained by a human being who is not always able to update quizzes in a timely manner due to other responsibilities. :)

'Czechia' will now be accepted.

Thanks for taking the quiz!
