Religion, Wealth and Why the US is Different

In 1966, Time magazine famously examined whether the United States was on a path to secularization when it published its now-iconic “Is God Dead?” cover. However, the question proved premature: The U.S. remains a robustly religious country and the most devout of all the rich Western democracies.

In fact, Americans pray more often, are more likely to attend weekly religious services and ascribe higher importance to faith in their lives than adults in other wealthy, Western democracies, such as Canada, Australia and most European states, according to a recent Pew Research Center study.https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2018/08/americans-are-far-more-religious-than-adults-in-other-wealthy-nations?fbclid=IwAR1BlsXkE3hwWl7GwgB8Ls-P7V4snND3bl92fYq3uzwR4htkcyyYq2nEOE0

I agree that the US is a wealthy and a religious country and the faith that we have to God has really something to do with the wealth we have.

Agree. It’d better to spend your Friday/Saturday/Sunday doing something productive.

I believe that there is a Supreme being and that is God who provides what we need here on earth.

Yes so true and really can't think how and why those guys still pray to manmade myths faiths and gods and even fight each other for the superiority of those manmade gods? So uneducated or lack of proper knowledge and information in a developed country like USA? So sad how those priests and politicians still fooling around with their own love ones and future generations? So much waste of time and productivity comparing to upcoming China and India.

I don’t believe the data. The UK believes in imaginary friends ever since it voted Brexit!
