0% of Icelanders 25 and under believe that the God created the world.

Courtesy of Iceland Magazine:  

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.

Gee, yet another country that is far more enlightened than America. 

Oh well, I think we're getting there.

    Sounds like my place to escape to. Mid way between the US and Western Europe to warm up

    1. warm up?? I lived there for a few years as a kid, and we had about 1 day a year that reached 60 degrees (Farenheit)... it is beautiful, though.
      ..sorry if I misunderstood your comment :)

  3. Lotta Pagans there too, I understand. I've got to admire people who will route roads around hills that elves occupy. I know you're atheist, Gryphen, but I know a lot of Christians who think angels are real- and if the Icelanders feel the hill is occupied by an elf, I'm going to support them. I wouldn't mess with an elf, either. Mostly they ignore humans but they can get testy.

    Big Bang: At the time of the beginning of the creation or from the absolute zero of time or from the God or big black hole or a black hole or Nature, part of the power of the Nature became divisible as a result of the big bang. The part of energy had been divided in the beginning of creation from the large field of energy, which is below 50% of total energy. In the most of natural power reserved in big black hole from which, the world of gravitation become influenced. See at

    The closest I got was Finland and was genuinely impressed, and I thought it was like dying and going to, well, a better place, I don't believe in Heaven/Hell.
    Their outlook on life, work, and family are fantastic and church and state are clearly separate.

  7. I've always wanted to visit this place, now I KNOW I wanna go!


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
