0% Icelanders under 25yrs believe universe created by God
"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."

Yeah. But did they do a study on how many believe in faries, or elves? I recall an old poll saying that 50% or more of Icelanders believe in Elves. It was eater there or Greenland that canceled a road because they didn't want to take the forest away from the faeries.

Iceland will be at the head of new Internationale Wink One almost can say that spectre of atheism looms over Europe.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Yeah I think I might look into moving there as well. All geothermal heat, right?

Whatever you do don't tell any of the current crop of republican presidential candidates. If any of them manage to get elected they'd probably bomb the place into oblivion if they knew, and we'd never be able to get any decent súrsaðir hrútspungar.

I LOVE that so much! I would so live there.

I love this too. [Image: 744eecf37ad8b58b76ecc3c30d33fa16.jpg]

I actually made plans for an in-ground/hillside home.
I would love to do this when I retire.
