RE: Demographics of Atheism and Religion
I'm very lucky to live in Oregon. Many people I know are agnostic or atheist but Portland has it's fair amount of Portlandia like nuts who believe in other kinds of woo. At least the wacky woo types don't try to convert others or threaten them with hell though.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

RE: Demographics of Atheism and Religion
I'm in ar yep right in the middle of religious area. It's hard here because it doesn't matter what u say or do people seem to think science is stupid and u are stupid for believing science. And evolution is hardly taught in schools as if it's a religion and not science.

Lighter = more religious, darker = less religious.

What's that little dark spot down in South America? Is that the beach at Rio?

From this map, I find it quite funny that the majority of Atheists in America are from the states that are not only the furthest away from the bible belt possible, but furthest the hell away from everybody else as well!

How does the demographics of where you live and other atheists you know life in relation to where the religious are? Do you find yourself smothered in like minded people, is there a big stretch of a mass of religious and it gets less and less religious until it arrives where you live in whatever city your from? Or, are you smack dab in the middle of fundi land?

Also, which religions are most prevalent in your area and how much influence over the area does it have? Example would be bill boards, constant large gatherings etc.

It's cold today where I am... based on this map, I can see a correlation between beautiful weather and praising God.

I'm told atheists on forums like TTA are bitter and angry. If you are not, your posts to me will be respectful, insightful and thoughtful. Prove me wrong by your adherence to decent behavior.

May I correct that to hilariously facetious and witty? Weather is just one reason to which we can add:

*poor people pray more than the wealthy
*college-educated people are more likely to be atheists, "thanks" to modern secularization including education
*Europe is primary in prophecy as a haven for anti-Christ sentiment in the end of days
*God hates Russkies and New York liberals (See how funny I am? This last one is pure parody worthy of any Poe)

[*college-educated people are more likely to be atheists, "thanks" to modern secularization including education]

While I do not know all my students' faiths, I do know from looking at their diversity, that they are not all christians. This is why if I had led my class in prayers this morning, I would have been very much aware that I would have excluded some students. This is why we have separation of church and state, which is over 200 years old (hardly "modern"). While I, a state university employee can not promote one religion, students, however, are free to pray on their own (which, bty the bible says you should do), organize their own religious clubs, associate with like-minded students, text each other bible verses to their hearts content and go to church all they want. I did loose my religion in college, but I doubt, that saying prayers before a lecture on the Diels-Alder reaction would have stopped me from loosing it.
