man i love this country
I’d come to grant with you on this. Which is not something I typically do! I really like reading a post that will make people think. Also, thanks for allowing me to comment!
Lol, this comic had me rolling. Though seriously it put’s things into perspective on how things are in other countries.
Hi, the place did you get this information are you able to please support this with some proof or you may say some good reference as I and others will really appreciate. This data is basically good and I will say will always be useful if we strive it risk free. So if you can again it up. That can really assist us all. And this would possibly convey some good reputation to you.
I’m sorry but what?!!!! Google is a wonderful tool and it has been known for a long time that the Nordic countries, which are some of the most secular countries in the world, are ranked as the most prosperous and happy countries in the world. You may want to take a course in ESL before you post again. No offense but your comment was barely comprehensible.
Michael, I am sure that cyber acoustics speaks another language and is struggling to communicate in English. With that in mind, his message is pretty reasonable really. Personally I believe the statistics given in the comic is correct, but providing the sources would do nothing but good.
Most normal thinking person just doesn’t want to appreciate religion. Where else can you find so much humor? Big hats and jelous gods, miracles, constantly tolling bells, gyrating dancers, funny men who love children (better strike this one) virgins, nuns and continuous guilt to keep them busy.
In its milder forms (80% of Europe not the US) just enough suspicion that “they” may have something to stop all thought process when in the area of this fun stuff.
Com’on appreciate humor for ionosphere’s sake.
This is awesome. I’m just waiting for some religious nut to fire back with something lame like a bible quote. Sam Harris is the TRUTH!!!
You must take note which cheap on the web divorces tend to be merely acceptable for many who desire to distinct without any constant difficulties unresolved between these. No-fault divorces are generally thought to be more cost-effective. A ‘no fault’ divorce comes about when both equally parties accept distinct in harmony with.
Remind me to never hire you as my divorce attorney.
it looks like he has 4 eyes in the last fram
The best part is that they actually speak norwegian in Hell, http://vitriolix.com/uploaded_images/hell.norway-751213.jpg
According to the Eurobarometer poll, 17% of Norwegians are atheists. And Sweden and France have more atheists than Norway, so Norway isn’t really the most atheist country in the world. The unemployment statistic sounds suspect too. I mean, Norway is very secular, and is a great place to live (as is Sweden), but you can’t just pull statistics out of your ass.
Also, did this comic really have people “rolling on the floor?” Its like atheist Mallard Fillmore.
Well, the Eurobarometer isn’t really correct. Something like 70-90% of Norwegians are members of the state church, because you become a member by being baptized (which is the norm). Around 10% of those people actually attend sermons.
I’ve been an Atheist for most of my life, but was automatically a member until I turned 16.
And yeah, the unemployment thing is real. Because of the welfare state, and a bureau trying to get everyone into the workforce, it’s hard to not get some kind of job.
I agree with the fact there is a few dodgy statistics in this article, however there are a few figures among general statistical data that people may find much more confusing. The main reason for some mucher higher christian belief stats I find is that Norway (lutheran/state) christianity was the state religion until very recently, and to dissociate yourself from the church you need to fill in a specific form (which, from my recent googling, is quite hard to find), and also that a large amount of the population was baptized in the state church, possibly with or without their consent. Other information I have read indicates that, at least until a few years ago, the state churches were exempt from tax and possibly received money from tax paid by people registered with the state church -not entirely relevant, but that does perhaps provide a snapshot of a viewpoint on separation of church and state. All the unemployment statistics seem to indicate that the current unemployment rate is around 3%-4%, with a rough mean around 3.3%, having a high at 4.7% in 2005 and a low of 2.3% in 2008- I have yet to see any recent norwegian unemployment statistics that show an unemployment rate of less than 2%. The statistics in this comic are slightly overexaggerated, of a bias towards norway, or contextually speaking atheism – which is slightly sad, because it doesn’t help atheists (or irreligious norwegians) advance their cause any further.
Well yeah, this is America… I’m a Dutch student who’s been living in the US for 2 years now and I still can’t get over how religious Americans are. Apart from a few Muslim immigrants I don’t recall meeting one single person in The Netherlands who was actually religious. In fact, only Slavs and Southern Europeans (Spaniards, Italians, Portuguese, Greeks…etc.) attend churches in Europe, nobody else. But here in the US, not believing in God is the worst crime one can commit. They treat you as if you were the monster! I’m an atheist, my best friend is African American, my girlfriend is Dominican American, I support women’s rights and gay rights, freedom of religion and racial equality but YES, I AM THE BAD PERSON FOR NOT BELIEVING IN GOD!!!
I’m from Norway and i find this funny as hell xD
you are not a bad person, you are just a dangerous guy. Supporting gay rights and having a black girl as fiancée is not a joy.
