Just read about this study and the comparison it inevitably draws between rich and poor countries.
If you pause to consider it though, it does make sense. Reminds me of a passage in Neil Gaiman's "American Gods" when he referred to America as a "bad place for Gods" (and if you've been hanging out and reading this humble blog of mine, you'll probably know how I can't wait for "God" to be irrelevant and unnecessary).
Your beliefs are your own though. Just don't be a fanatic, please!
