@ Stigni: North Korea has Juche, that means they "believe" Kim is a god.
@ PorcNBeanz: Irreligion isn't the same as intellect. Finland, Switzerland and Taiwan aren't on this list, but yet they're in the top 10 of every PISA test.
I've been baptized when I was a few days old. I don't believe in any god, and my parents or my brother don't. But four french "christians"... Sorry for my english.
Everyone is free to choose their interpretation, of course, so it's difficult to draw any conclusions whatsoever from this quiz :)
Czech Republic is traditionally regarded as the most atheist European country and is also high on this list, but I have a friend who moved there from Slovenia and to him CZ seems more religious. Simply put – Slovenes might go to church only on Christmas, Easter, funerals, weddings etc, not care much about God but consider themselves religious in a poll. Czechs would do the same but claim they're not religious.
And no, it's not about "boo hoo that's what the people answered" - if you've lived in these countries you know that believers are very, very rare. Walking on the streets you're probably more likely to run into a convicted murderer than a religious person. It's a shame that people behind these polls decided to take a shortcut and just make up numbers out of their heads.
I'm wondering whether they even did that poll in Norway.
The only reason I can think of, with not having Norway up there, is if the survey was not done in every country. Being from Norway, and being interested in religion, I know there are no surveys done where over 50% of the population said they were religious. That would be insane.
It's Called Vatican City :)
I expected Finland, Norway, Iceland to be on the list.
But not necessarily Russia, Belgium, Cuba - I'd expect to find Uruguay and Taiwan above those.
Norway has about 22% who believes in God, so how over 50% can be religious is a mystery. My only guess is that the survey this quiz was based on, was not conducted in all countries. Norway and Finland's absent might just have been due to them not being surveyed. Anything else makes little sense to me. As a Norwegian interested in religion, I would have know if there were any survey's where the majority of Norwegian identify as religious.
Religious countries are obviously still lacking in most of these factors.
the most arch religious of all
Surprinsingly didn't work.
Given what i've understood about irreligiousity I thought Iceland would have been in the list, but apparently not.
Also forgot Azerbaijan :(
