What exactly does Detroit have to do with my post?<quoted text> Detroit is not in the toilet on account of too much religion.
Determining the exact number of atheists in any part of the world is difficult, and all of the data collected on the topic represents only a "best guess" scenario derived by researchers. The only way to identify a person's religion is through polling, and polls have a few notorious weaknesses...Perhaps surprisingly, the majority of atheists in the world live in East Asia. China, Japan and North Korea all have a high percentage of atheist or irreligious people. The reasons for this are varied. One factor is the influence of communism, which has a positive correlation with atheism. Cultural factors also help to explain the number of atheists in these regions.
<quoted text> Far from facts or bias. The last sentence of your posted article has more to do with anti Catholic opinion than it does facts.
Statements like those corrupt the whole and certainly makes your claim about facts as opposed to opinion or bias questionable. Seems you do not know the difference between facts and opinion.
And yes, I do know the difference between facts and opinions; it would be helpful if you would use some facts to bolster your opinion.
It seems that you are trying to preempt my "opinion" with polls that contain some information that you don't like with your "opinion" that represents your "best guess". At least the sources I provided included some of the very same data that you are proposing - the effect of communism, and you seem to be suggesting that there is something inherently "dark" about Asians as well, while the northern European countries on the list didn't seem to elicit anything negative from you at all.
Sometimes in defending your beliefs you react with too much zeal and lose sight of everything but your singular purpose and belief.
