Is it fair to say that Protestant beliefs (salvation through hardwork) created the modern world?

how come traditionally Catholic countries/empires (Spain, Poortugal, etc) in history have comparatively shit colonies compared to Protestant ones?

Were Dutch colonies better than the French or Spanish ones? Seems to me it's just a British thing.

Because 95% of all the "Protestant" colonies you are referring to happen to be originally British and got all the pleasant habitable lanlater ds (America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa)

The Netherlands only had Indonesia

Its more of the fact that Albion is incredibly perfidious and Spain wasted a lot of its resources trying to colonize the netherlands

South Africa was for a while, but it doesn't really count given Quebec doesn't count for France.

Otherwise no.

Hard work created the modern world. No religion has a copyright on the concept of hard work.
>>
yeah its a pattern: Protestants made it good, Catholics had a moment of glory and Orthodox are practically savages on par with Islam.
>>
Only the British Empire had decent colonies
Even then, they fucked up like half the world
>>
France: Catholic, not shit
Germany: mixed, not shit
Austria: Catholic, not shit
Ireland: Catholic, not shit
England: basically Catholic in all but name
It's more that the factors that enabled Protestant princes to assert themselves were the same factors that enabled a modern market and an efficient bureaucracy (i.e. a strong, centralized state in which technocracy could trump patrimony).

Who else would you want to rule half the world? The Jews? The Rothschilds?
