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.



well she also said americans are usually on time and stuff...but idk...I was interested in the discussion but wasn't interesting enough for me to remember everything about it. The debate was like in a month ago....anyway im kinda getting annoyed with this guy because he always says stupid things and this wasn't the only thing he said stupid things about

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.


what source did you use, sources from the 1800's?



Everyone of my sources is from 2006-2007.
Luck up at my other post I posted 1/10 of my sources and will post more at a later time. If you still need more.

We study to learn the things we wouldn't know by ourselves.
If you don't go to school for 200+ days a year, how would you be able to perform a brain biopsy or a heart transplant?

Personally, I enjoy studying. It is one of few things I consider myself to be good at doing.

Everyone should not go to school, however. There are some people who should focus first on surviving at all. In addition to that, every individual has his or her own set of goals. If a person's goals do not require schooling, attending would be a large waste of time and money.

School was created so that future generations could learn of the past and advance from it to reach some kind of goal I guess, I go to school for X number of days cause I'll hear too much nagging from my parents if I don't. I personally hate school even though I do pretty well, just annoying if you set rules out and certain times, like we're freaking being trained so I don't like that thought, learning should be as the people learning choose, if they want it fun it should be that way, school is a training program for kids so they can be better than the last generation.

School was created due to a sad attempt at reducing your idiocy. It doesn't seem to be working though.

No no, you got it all wrong my friend. It is not because of religion, but more of discipline. America lacks it very much and much of the students these days are spoiled as fuck, not giving a shit about learning as many poor children who can't afford to go to school dream of going to school. And I said it before, intelligence has nothing to do with the religion of another. Plus, I can see you are placing too much blame upon the bible.

I was thinking the same thing.

Also, education in America is one of the lowest. But there is a really good reason for that.
