If you split them up? That makes Athiesm/non-believers the **largest** group...

Atheists and non-believers are different groups.

You'll have to split them up, too.

Unless you need to count atheists, agnostics, "no answers" and Wiccans all together.

I mean, your numbers are tiny and all....

The point really is that no matter what religion you pick, you're a minority. No matter what then most religious people have to be wrong. In fact, maybe all of them could be wrong....

<quoted text>Sweden is mostly atheist.

So is Denmark and so is Switzerland.

All are majority atheists.

And all have superior cultures than **any** religious country (including the USA).

All enjoy low crime rates, very low infant mortality, universal health care, and very high average salaries.

Most likely because they dumped toxic religion (apart from a purely symbolic remainder, devoid of any real substance).

And they **never** let religion interfere with **any** serious decision.
Oz is only 40% christian now and getting better daily.

What's going to lower that number even faster, will be the fact that our current PM is catlik and an imbecile who is trying to destroy the Great Barrier Reef, amongst other bone headed idiocies that will ensure his short term.

In the past year, I've become very happy to be living in a secular society that scoffs at religious nonsense.

You are an idiot.
The act was first called a "train wreck" by Max Baucus, the democrat who sponsored the bill in the Senate.
And what he meant by "train wreck" is entirely different from what the Republicans mean by train wreck. Baucus meant it didn't go far enough. Republicans mean it exists...which in their estimation makes it a train wreck.

Plus, Baucus is trying to make what we have work. The Republicans are trying everything they can to make it not work, and to make their prediction of a "train wreck" into a self fulfilling prophecy.

I notice you didn't address that part at all...because you can't. Republicans are out to destroy "Obamacare" however they can, whether or not it is good for America.

Instead, as is you usual MO, you key in on one piece of rhetoric and make that your entire case. The "train wreck" was metaphorical, just using the terminology that you had already established. Republicans were already stating that universal health coverage would be a disaster, even if they hadn't used the exact words "train wreck", long before Baucus made his statement.

You are pathetic.

Indeed not.
Modern science has discovered the real cause of disease-- and it's not "evil spirits" as religion claims.
(that's still in the bible, by the way-- that disease is "evil spirits" of some sort. Pathetic.)
Oh please, give reference.

That's the message I get from clicking your link.
Your link, EXACTLY LIKE YOUR JESUS, does not exist.
Classic!
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/bart-d-ehrman/d...
In a society in which people still claim the Holocaust did not happen, and in which there are resounding claims that the American president is, in fact, a Muslim born on foreign soil, is it any surprise to learn that the greatest figure in the history of Western civilization, the man on whom the most powerful and influential social, political, economic, cultural and religious institution in the world -- the Christian church -- was built, the man worshipped, literally, by billions of people today -- is it any surprise to hear that Jesus never even existed?
Note agnostic who leans towards atheism, Ehrman compares people like you to holocaust deniers.
With respect to Jesus, we have numerous, independent accounts of his life in the sources lying behind the Gospels (and the writings of Paul)-- sources that originated in Jesus' native tongue Aramaic and that can be dated to within just a year or two of his life (before the religion moved to convert pagans in droves). Historical sources like that are is pretty astounding for an ancient figure of any kind. Moreover, we have relatively extensive writings from one first-century author, Paul, who acquired his information within a couple of years of Jesus' life and who actually knew, first hand, Jesus' closest disciple Peter and his own brother James. If Jesus did not exist, you would think his brother would know it.

Moreover, the claim that Jesus was simply made up falters on every ground. The alleged parallels between Jesus and the "pagan" savior-gods in most instances reside in the modern imagination: We do not have accounts of others who were born to virgin mothers and who died as an atonement for sin and then were raised from the dead (despite what the sensationalists claim ad nauseum in their propagandized versions).
You know more than Ehrman?

Yep. It's the fastest growing group, world-wide.

Which is why the godbots are running scared.

I have to give you credit Aura, you were the only brave 'rational atheist' to respond.

It Ain't Necessary ran like a sissy when I called her on the idiotic claim.

So, the challenge remains; What is the poster child country that models atheism with religion removed???

Smile.
