Yes, however, as the numbers indicate most of the major top countries (top regarding education, jobs, income, influence in the world) are rapidly moving away from observing religions.

I can't see that countries like the European countries, where religious observance is almost non-existent, Canada, and the USA, and others like them where people have the time, money and ability to do so many things with their lives, besides setting aside each Sunday to attend a church service, which I basically did for nearly 45 years, partly due to living with my parents and having no choice, but also based on my own desire to continue doing that when I had my own home and family, that we will return to the days of my youth when all people who did anything at all on Sunday usually were in church. Even those who never attended church were observing Sunday as a day of rest, when they did not participate in their normal weekly activities.

Actually? You misquoted.

Although hell, sheol and Hades all, literally, mean the same thing: something that is hidden, a place where all of the dead wait to be raised "from" at some future date.

I know you understand the conundrum here.

Believers in deities believe in those deities. When it comes down to describing those deities, or if you ask for the reasons the deities "do what they do", or why, it's just some vague and nonspecific "it's what they do" I dunno what they look like", "I don't know why", reasons.

So, in using the Leprechaun example.

Why do leprechauns put their gold in pots?

Why not a bag or a chest?

How do they transport the gold in the pot?

How big is the pot?

I understand it comes across as insulting to the theist when those "examples" are used(leprechauns etc...).

It's a little off putting and frustrating to the atheist, too, when the answer to a question is:

"My deity has his reasons for what he does, I don't really know what they are, but trust me, the reason you just gave for what it looks like my deity did and the reasons for that are wrong".

Do you see the contradictions in ^^those^^ type statements?

And, yet...so many of the people on here who claim to have no interest in a deity are fascinated with watching movies and reading books about the supernatural. Wheezy Bob of QF practically squirts over Terry Pratchett's fictional witch stories, quoting them often (snickering) and proclaiming, "I love the darkness/evil...", when speaking of his beloved author's subject matter. I suspect "arrested development" in Bob's case, in other words, "child in a grownup's body".
