It seems to be that the more dollar bills there are, the less religious people become. Or so says a report I came across recently
A recent post on religion that I thought was light hearted managed to get itself quite a lot of attention, and not to mention hits. It led me to read up a bit more on the religiousness of people which then led me to an interesting report. The Pew Global Attitudes Project released a report on certain key issues, one of which included religion. The results of the report seem to show that the richer a country is, the less religious it is.
Right up there, you see Africa, definitely poor and definitely religious, and right down there you see West Europe, richer and seemingly less religious. The graph is quite interesting really. It seems to show that the more self sufficient you are, the less interest you have in a higher power. Also, it is the older people that are more religious and the younger ones don’t seem to be as bothered about this religion thing.
It’d make an interesting discussion, but this time I leave the conclusions to you.
