    Something to think about.

    Denmark, Norway and Sweden are at the top of the UNís annual World Happiness Report, year after year. Also, these countries have the least crime rates in the world.

    Now, Is it a frigging coincidence that these countries have some of the highest percentage of atheists and non religious people in the world?


    There's more. These countries, whose population comprises mostly of non believers, the kind who don't believe in Karma, after life, heaven or hell, are the most charitable. They donate more than anyone else in the world (As percentage of their GDP).


    Without praying 5 times a day or every Sunday, without bothering about auspicious time, homa and yajna, these countries have the highest number of Nobel laureates per million of population.

    Maybe, just maybe, God and Religion are the things that are holding back the majority of nations.

    America, New Zealand and Canada top list of world?s most generous nations | The Independent

    America has been named as the world’s most generous nation in the world, where its citizens give the most to charity, according to a new report.

    The USA, New Zealand and Canada have the highest rate of charitable donations as a percentage gross domestic product (GDP), the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) found

    Mr. Czernobog,

    China has the highest percentage of self admitted atheist. I heard they are pretty happy there.

    Interesting that you mentioned New Zealand: In the early 21st century almost a third of New Zealanders described themselves as having no religion, and many churches had been sold and converted to other uses. Atheism and secularism have a long history in New Zealand, with freethinkers, rationalists and humanists all forming their own organisations.

    So, looks like we have, yet another, atheist nation topping those lists.

    ...aaand, then we have the US.

    Really? I hadn't heard that. But, it would appear you're not entirely wrong. GROWTH AND HAPPINESS IN CHINA, 1990-2015. Good catch.

    How? You pointed out that China is atheist, ans as the report I linked to pointed out, they are up, and coming in the Happiness Index. Seems like Atheism is working all over.

    Mr. Czernobog,

    I don't enjoy making you look the fool, but damn, dude, you should at least read your own link:

    "From 1990 to 2000-2005, life satisfaction in China, on average, declined. Since then it has
    turned upward, but at present it is probably less than a quarter century ago. China’s ranking in
    the international array of countries by SWB appears to have declined considerably since 1990
    , although it has improved as of late. There
    is no evidence of an increase in China’s life satisfaction of the sizeable magnitude that would
    be expected
    based on the international point-of time bivariate relationship of happiness to GDP."

    In other words, the majority of New Zealand is religious.

    I'm pretty sure the US counts tithing and church collection as a charitable donation, but that's not necessarily true. what is true is that the US incarcerates more of its population than any other first world country.
    Thanks from Czernobog
