This is very surprising. Top 50 countries with Highest Proportion of Atheist/Agnostics. This statistics was done in 2005. The maximum number of Atheist/Agnostics is approximately about 672 million people. This statistics is only based on 50 countries. In fact, there are more than 50 countries in the world. So, the number could be much higher. Well, well... it is very nice job, Satan! (LOL). Please share your insights. Here is the link http://www.adherents.com/largecom/com_atheist.html

First let me say that being an atheist does not make you a satanist. It just mean that at least some people are thinking for themselve rather than believing in blindfaith. I don't believe or dis-believe in God. I question God... in search of an answer. That don't make me an atheist. It simply makes me a thinker. I would find it very hard to believe that 54 per cent of French people are atheist. It is a catholic country. Most of them believe in God... but 54 per cent don't practise their religion. That don't make them atheist. It comes to no surprise to me that the US have a very low atheist number. You probably get shoot for not believing in God in the US. Considering that the US has the highest murder rate amongst the countries of the Western World... there is no doubt that there is an association between religion and violence.

Aussies2007, First of all, why did you assume regarding my posting that an atheist was equal to a satanist? Did I write that an atheist was equal to a satanist? It seems to me that you are a super sensitive person or perhaps, your imaginary was too much! You should read my posting again. Yes, I mentioned about Satan but I didn’t refer to Atheists (i.e., individuals)! Satan on my posting is in the context of a REAL Satan. Whether you like it or not, I have my own opinion with regard to this philosophical view (Sorry, if you don’t like my point of view). Now, what is definition of Atheist? According to Wikipedia, “Atheism, in its broadest definition, is the absence of belief in a God or gods” -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atheism_and_religion In other words, Atheism is properly defined as a denial of the existence of God in the midst of full knowledge that the true God does indeed exist. If we take a look closely with the right perspective here, we will know that our nature traits consist of two sides (God or Satan; Good or Bad; Sea or Land; Male or Female; Cold or Hot; Oxygen Space or Non-Oxygen space, etc.). All of these things are a blueprint of the Universe. Since the philosophical view of Atheism affirms the nonexistence of God, which side will then Atheism stand? I just can’t see the other alternative. The philosophical view of Atheism is obviously not from God. Because it is impossible that God is denying His own existence. So, where does the concept of Atheism come from? There is only one option left which is Satan. Both theism and Atheism are often questioning about God. This is a human nature to have questions because we are not a creature who knows everything, right? You can question God whenever you like but the blueprint of Universe is clear that we can only have two sides. Good side (i.e., God) or Bad side (i.e., Satan). I believe that your inner heart will know exactly which one is Good and which one is Bad. We can’t have a middle side, can we? That’s a blueprint that is already determined by God. It is like blood in every creature. All blood in every creature are red. FYI, I respect your belief (Atheism) but my point of view is still intact as said above. With regard to your comment that there is an association between religion and violence, I differ from your opinion. Although I realize that religion often causes violence, I don’t want to withdraw a conclusion that the higher atheists live in the country the lower violence exists in that country. Looking at the past, I have got an impression that there is no correlation between Atheism and lower violence. Take a look at this site http://www.patriotica.org/ You will then get a good perspective how Atheistical Communism was really scary in the history of mankind. Please also see the video --“What Atheists do with Political Power” on the website. Also, according to the researches and statistics, we will know that people who were killed in the various communist countries are about 110 million. On the other hand, people who were killed during the crusades and the inquisition are about 1.5 million and 2 million. Thus, either Atheism or Theism is no better one with another. Thus, we can’t draw a conclusion that the country with lower Atheist has higher violence.

Everlasting, As I said on my previous posting, I realized that religion could cause violence. But please note that the violence was done by humans. However, the CONCEPT of religion is about LOVE and I don't see it in the concept of Atheism.

At the end of your question... you blame Satan for Atheism. Does that not mean that you regard Atheists to be the people of Satan? Then in your comment... you say it again... So, where does the concept of Atheism come from? There is only one option left which is Satan. Do you really know what you are saying? Then you go on... You can question God whenever you like but the blueprint of Universe is clear that we can only have two sides. God or Satan. So again you are telling us that anyone who don't believe in God is a Satanist. And that everyone who don't believe in God must be a bad person. I beg to differ. There is a middle side... and people who don't believe in God don't believe in Satan either. But my point was that your poll could not be taken seriously... because they took all the people who did not practise their religion... and called them "Atheists". Just because people don't pray, don't read the bible and don't go to church... does not mean that they don't believe in God. And furthermore... your poll says that the USA has one the lowest number of Atheists. And the fact remains that the USA has the highest crime rate in the Western World. And to prove the point... the first 1500 years of Christianity in Europe was a genocide in the name of religion. And later on... they did the same thing around the world with every country they attempted to colonise. Just read your history. You simply cannot go around killing people because they refuse to believe in your God. This is sick, sick...
