>Iceland seems to be on its way to becoming an even more secular nation, according to a new poll. Less than half of Icelanders claim they are religious and more than 40% of young Icelanders identify as atheist. Remarkably the poll failed to find young Icelanders who accept the creation story of the Bible. 93.9% of Icelanders younger than 25 believed the world was created in the big bang, 6.1% either had no opinion or thought it had come into existence through some other means and 0.0% believed it had been created by God.
>The poll also found a growing percentage of Icelanders support the full separation of church and state. Out of those who expressed an opinion on the subject 72% supported the full separation of church and state and 28% oppose the separation of church and state.
That's 0.0% of people going to heaven.
Check mate Atheists.
What in the Icelands caused such a thing? I for sure thought that religious upbringing was designed to perpetuate itself, so something else must be at play. It can't be just the upbringing since that would also drastically affect the polls or opinions of separation of church and state.
...and OP, why Nietzsche? You edgy?
While the whole self perpetuation thing is true that doesn't mean that people will buy into it. Whilst the numbers suggested 60% of young people in Iceland still believe in something it might be that due to their education at school they accept that Science has a better explanation than the Bible or other religious text.
Let me explain something to you anon a kids parents tell him if he prays God will help him and listen to his prayers. One day the kids grandma gets sick so the kid prays for her to get better. She dies painfully from drug resistant pneumonia . One day the boys dog runs away so the boy prays for its safe return , guess what anon little boy finds the dog dead and run over. One day the little boy gets stuck in a burning building and prays for God to save him. No reply but guess what does happen. Another human that's right not God, braves the fire and saves him. So far all God did was kill his grandma and dog and trap him in a burning building. So that little boy has no reason to pray to a diety who at best is unaware and at worst a melevolant human hating son of a bitch that can go suck a dick. Now this is all hypothetichal of course but I didn't feel like giving any real personal stories.
Also too I have a question for you why are Christians such self hating masichist. I mean they belive that they are born guilty wtf . I mean essentially they want to be tied down and told how they are unworthy as God shoves his huge throbbing cock stright up their tight little bleached asses. If a deity wants respect cool but I will not render myself a slave to anyone I will however accept being seen as a peer although only in the sense of being sentient I have too much respect for myself to say that my salvation will only come when I please my "master". I fear that I will never understand you self degrading submissives.
Tell me what good has done for you lately last I checked he put me in a universe where 99.999999999 percent of it will instantly kill me in various unpleasant ways also why did he make my reproductive organs the same ones I use to piss with that's like putting a strip club in a sewer gross man just gross
>0.0% of Icelanders 25 years or younger believe X
I explained this in the /pol/ thread. In these types of polls it's not possible to get a true 0% or true 100%, they just take a large sample of the populace and mathematically extrapolate as trends have a tendency to continue regardless of the size of your data pool.
It just so happened that within their pool no one believed in X, so when you mathematically extrapolate 0 you still have 0. This calculation is why polls always have margins of error which themselves can also be calculated by the relationship between the size of your sample group and the degree to which you're extrapolating (all Icelanders 25 yrs old or younger).
It's a quirk of statistics.
What's important is to know that almost all or the vast vast majority of Icelanders 25 years or younger probably don't believe God created the world. Then again that's not as catchy, accurate though.
You clearly have no understanding of the purpose of prayer and those parent like you will raise atheists as you say
Read Job and come to the understanding that God is beyond our definitions of good and bad
Yeah and God made sure a lot of us have our back teeth growing in painfully, forcing us to pull them out. Eating and breathing in the same hole was a brilliant idea as well, no problem at all from that during old age, very smart design. The appendicitis was a cool design choice as well. I would have left that one out but I guess it's part of His plan.
As well as making sure fires happen that burn little boys alive. Those that don't get saved by a fireman that is.
>atheists who portray all religious people as believing in a benevolent old guy in the sky with human emotions so they can defeat a straw man argument
It's just so you can screech out things like " if God exists why do little kids get raped and murdered?!?!", right?
The Pew Religious Landscape survey reported that as of 2014, 22.8% of the U.S. population is religiously unaffiliated, atheists made up 3.1% and agnostics made up 4%,
Therefore 92.9% of icelanders under the age of 25, are more intelligent than than U.S. population.
the quicker religion dies out the better off we will all be.
>the quicker religion dies out the better off we will all be
Now we play the waiting game for the 60 year old conservatives and their belief in magical fairy spirits to die out.
But vote #1 69 year old Protestant guy. Absolute facepalm America
So given that Christianity and Islam are dying, what do you suspect the new religions that will take over are going to be?
Roman Paganism was usurped by Christianity, and Zoroastrianism by Islam. The cycle continues.
I'm betting something from East Asia. Something Buddhist/Taoist/Confucian in origin.
Well, why don't you ask a Christian why they are a self-hating masochist? Here's a hint, word it differently if you want a real answer.
And for the love of fuck, don't say "Also too..." and use punctuation for questions.
If you could not eat or breathe out of the same hole then how could you taste the cock you were choking on?
>appendicitis: inflammation of the appendix, very painful, can result in death.
>appendix: a pesky, currently useless part of your body that Anon can't identify
wow, you literally just said something everybody knew. No fucking shit they didn't force every young Icelandic bastard into some office so they could ask each one if they they believed in god. You may as well say 2+2=4.
Religion is only dying in rich countries. Poor people believe in god because they have nothing else. When your job involves working long hours with no paid leave and only results in you earning a meagre sum of money, it is comforting to think there is some being out there that sees that hard work and will reward you after death. Of course, this really only means the poor bastards in Asian, African, and Latin American countries are delusional. If you are wondering why rich Arabs aren't atheistic, you must understand Arab leaders enforce Sharia law and leaving Islam is punishable with death so the religion is Islam can at least be regarded as a brilliantly crafted religion that keeps itself alive. Perhaps if the Christian religion had punished apostasy with death, the West would be a puritanical shithole.

Is Iceland the most based country? Brb fucking QT pagan Icelandic girls with freedoms
When I'm asked if I'm religious, and I respond politely "no, I don't believe there's enough evidence to believe in a god" most people roll their eyes and claim that I'm angry with god. This post helps me to understand where they're coming from.
I'm not religious but if some omnipotent omnipresent entity manifested itself undeniably and demanded fealty and submission or else I would burn for all of eternity in conscious pain. I would drop to my knees and so would you. Not to mention eternal bliss as the reward. You cam act proud and tough but we're talking about a hypothetical God of the universe. No one in their right mind would stand in defiance to something that created you from dust and controls the fate of your very soul. Religion is so powerful because all you have to do is convince people that he exists
Guy's right. Universe born: ~13.5 billion years ago. Earth coalesces: ~4.5 billion years ago. Earth has only been around for about a third of the Universe's existence, and was an inhospitable ball of volcanism for most of its own existence.
He's talking about the same God that didn't answer his prayers to save his sick grandmother or get his runaway dog home. If God indirectly saves my life after refusing to help me twice, I wouldn't be impressed enough to start worshiping him.
