Is God Dead?

The more I study religion the more amazed I become with it. Recently I wanted to search for facts; what country is the most atheistic in the world? My findings were a surprise. Up to 85% of the Swedes does not believe in a God, this is the opposite to USA where about 3-9% is non-believers, atheists or agnostics.

Toplist

1. Sweden (up to 85% non-believer, atheist, agnostic)
2. Vietnam
3. Denmark
4. Norway
5. Japan
6. Czech Republic
7. Finland
8. France
9. South Korea
10. Estonia (up to 49% non-believer, atheist, agnostic)

Now, how come that 7 of 10 countries in the top list are European? I think that the education and health is very good in this countries. Science has done very much for this countries and people don’t need religion any more. It is like with Santa Claus, when you reach third grade you don’t believe in him anymore. Maybe it is so with God too?

We can see that in the developing countries like Uganda, Algeria, Benin, Botswana, Burkina, Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Chad etc there is less than 1% non-believers. Maybe people in the Europe see that it works without God, people don’t need to rely on him anymore. But I don’t know why it is that Europeans is more non-believers than the rest of the world, I just have my theories.

My question stands; Is God Dead?
