Why do I say that, The most educated countries in the world at this time, are mostly atheist. Thats right.
On top of that There crime rate is 8 times less than America, and there teen pregnancy rate is 10 times less than America. ' (so what Morality are you learning about in them Bibles hmmm?) '


wow its YOU again. Why don't you do a little bit of research before posting. America HAS NO NATIONAL RELIGION. Countries ilke England have the national church of England or the Anglican church as their main religion and they're doing fine. And btw America was founded on Puritan values (in case your ignorant ass doesn't know puritans are a form of protestants which of course even you should at least know are a form of christians) which is why Americans are the hardest working society in the world. (of course there are a few exceptions for a couple of lazy asses out there) the puritans were based on values such as "Idle hands are the devil's tools " which meant that they kept themselves busy so they won't have any leisure time to sin

All other countries take more vacations than the Americans. Americans usually put work first in their priorities because of this. (I heard in Mexico you can be excused from coming late to an appointment if you wanted to talk to your grandmother)




And btw even though America was founded on Puritan guidelines, only VERY FEW people are Christians. Most of them just SAY they are christians even though they haven't gone to church in YEARS. but they still kept to some of the puritan guidelines. Funny how the basis of a country can influence people hundreds of years later



90 percent of Americans call themselves "Christians" and 80 percent claim some link to a specific church.
Thus, do I dares to speak the words "Christian America."

Britain is formally a religious country
Exactly half of white men say that they have no religion (in the BSA 2004), versus 41 percent of white women. To put it another way, men make up 58 percent of the secular category as defined above using European Social Survey data, but only 36 percent of the religious groups.

published on religions in Japan
non-believers in the majority (63%), followed by Buddhists (26%), Shintoists (2%) and Christians (1%).

America:
Statistics released today by the FBI show that the estimated volume of violent crime in 2007, The estimated rate of violent crime was 466.9 occurrences per 100,000 inhabitants and the estimated rate of property crime was 3,263.5 per 100,000 inhabitants

In fact, the murder rate in the US is 6 times that of Britain and 5 times that of Australia. Neither country has the DP. Texas has twice the murder rate of Wisconsin, a state that doesn't have the DP.

Japan has a murder and crime rate of 2.1 per 100,000 inhabitants. Thats more than 220 times the estimated rate of Violent crimes in america alone.







Lol BULL SHIT on the "90% christian thing" and the 1% on the christian thing for japan. What source have you been looking up, wikipedia?


I use more than one source on top of that I will not use Wikipedia, I find that infermation to be wrong more than 30% of the time.

1. Unfortunately the majority aren't christians.

2.Well sorry but I can't prove it to you that Americans are the hardest working people because I just remember a class discussion when we were studying the puritans and one of the topics were the puritan values we have today. I mean idk about you but I'd trust an Ap History teacher who graduated from Berkely

3. Again I can't prove this to you but I remember having a class discussion in English class about this topic and the reason why America is thought of as mostly Christian is because when people were signing up for things and they had to bubble in their religion, there were no "athiest" bubble so they just bubbled in Christian. Just an interesting fact the sub had for the class

Sorry i can't prove it to you and I don't blame you for not believing me but I'm still going to stand by my point


1.) I guess there's no point in arguing on this one...

2.) Undoubtedly, Puritan values have influenced the way our culture has developed--I'm not disputing this.. I'm only asking for proof that we work the hardest. As for your teacher, his credentials sound lovely, but that does not mean his personal beliefs are true. Teachers have a tendency of overstepping the boundaries of their knowledge to teach students opinion rather than fact. Besides, I'm not even sure how you'd measure this value. If you came up with a system that suggests the United States does work the hardest, I'm sure I could come up with one that suggests another country is.

3.) I'm not sure if that was ever the case (if it was, I'm sure "undecided" or "unaffiliated" would have been chosen instead of Christian), but it isn't anymore. Surveys are conducted rather frequently, and the secular population is not ignored. What you heard in your discussion in a class (from a substitute teacher, no less) is just not true.

Based on your answers to 2 and 3, I suggest you engage in critical thinking and research of your own rather than simply listen to what you're told in school. If what you find confirms what you are told, that's great--but you shouldn't stop because of it.



I am finding your statistics for Japan (observe both Shinto and Buddhist 84%, other 16% (including Christian 0.7%), see https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/print/ja.html) and Britain (Christian (Anglican, Roman Catholic, Presbyterian, Methodist) 71.6%, Muslim 2.7%, Hindu 1%, other 1.6%, unspecified or none 23.1%, see https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/print/uk.html) do not match up to what the CIA says.

The sources you cited above deal with crime, not religion. And I think one of them was actually about Canada...

btw my history teacher is a she. And the reason she came up for why Americans are the hardest working is because American workers go on less vacations than workers from other countries.

wow its YOU again. Why don't you do a little bit of research before posting. America HAS NO NATIONAL RELIGION. Countries ilke England have the national church of England or the Anglican church as their main religion and they're doing fine. And btw America was founded on Puritan values (in case your ignorant ass doesn't know puritans are a form of protestants which of course even you should at least know are a form of christians) which is why Americans are the hardest working society in the world. (of course there are a few exceptions for a couple of lazy asses out there) the puritans were based on values such as "Idle hands are the devil's tools " which meant that they kept themselves busy so they won't have any leisure time to sin

All other countries take more vacations than the Americans. Americans usually put work first in their priorities because of this. (I heard in Mexico you can be excused from coming late to an appointment if you wanted to talk to your grandmother)




And btw even though America was founded on Puritan guidelines, only VERY FEW people are Christians. Most of them just SAY they are christians even though they haven't gone to church in YEARS. but they still kept to some of the puritan guidelines. Funny how the basis of a country can influence people hundreds of years later



90 percent of Americans call themselves "Christians" and 80 percent claim some link to a specific church.
Thus, do I dares to speak the words "Christian America."

Britain is formally a religious country
Exactly half of white men say that they have no religion (in the BSA 2004), versus 41 percent of white women. To put it another way, men make up 58 percent of the secular category as defined above using European Social Survey data, but only 36 percent of the religious groups.

published on religions in Japan
non-believers in the majority (63%), followed by Buddhists (26%), Shintoists (2%) and Christians (1%).

America:
Statistics released today by the FBI show that the estimated volume of violent crime in 2007, The estimated rate of violent crime was 466.9 occurrences per 100,000 inhabitants and the estimated rate of property crime was 3,263.5 per 100,000 inhabitants

In fact, the murder rate in the US is 6 times that of Britain and 5 times that of Australia. Neither country has the DP. Texas has twice the murder rate of Wisconsin, a state that doesn't have the DP.

Japan has a murder and crime rate of 2.1 per 100,000 inhabitants. Thats more than 220 times the estimated rate of Violent crimes in america alone.







Lol BULL SHIT on the "90% christian thing" and the 1% on the christian thing for japan. What source have you been looking up, wikipedia?


I use more than one source on top of that I will not use Wikipedia, I find that infermation to be wrong more than 30% of the time.

You say you don't trust Wikipedia, which often cites sources now, yet you trust a .com site? Furthermore, did you even read it? The results came from this .com site's questionnaire of 241 people from a pen pal service. Are you actually going to trust that over the CIA's data?

Also, you have yet to establish that 1.) Japan is the most educated, and 2.) there is a causal relationship between the religious beliefs of a country and the crime rate.

ok wheres ur sources saying 90% of americans are christians


http://www.harrisinteractive.com/harris_poll/index.asp?PID=359
http://www.commonwealmagazine.org/blog/?p=1015





WOW ARE YOU A RETARD

IT SAYS ONLY 2,201 PEOPLE WERE INTERVIEWED. You can't just say 90% of americans believe in it just because of that. You have to also consider many other factors like WHAT REGION those people were from and WHAT KIND OF BACKGROUND. It could be a totally biased poll. btw i REALLY don't like that site because what it asks about ghosts and extraterrestrial stuff. Yeah...

btw my history teacher is a she. And the reason she came up for why Americans are the hardest working is because American workers go on less vacations than workers from other countries.


What about number of days worked per week and hours per day? What about actual productivity? Etc. As you can see, there are other criteria by which we can judge "effort" in the workplace.

Also, insulting the other guy probably isn't going to help... and it doesn't seem particularly Christian.
