Per Capita isn't necessarily more revealing than general GDP in my opinion. The basic GDP is at least a real world number. Per capita GDP however is an average that supposedly represents individuals, but which is quite limited in it's ability to do so (for our purposes) because it does not factor in income distribution. In some states, including in some of those that are highest on the list of Per Capita GDP among the non-Southern states ( New York , California, District of Columbia etc.) there is a huge gap in income distribution.

And of course correlation does not (necessarily) equal causation.

qatar and kuwait are developing countries

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Developing_country


Based on all the stats i showed in my opening posts, my OP still stands firm.
The more religious the country the more likely that country is not 1st world but rather developing.

It's simple. Our religious >>> other countries religious nuts.

Our Religious people embrace the principles of Ayn Rand's self-rational interest and Capitalism. Even those that don't quite fully understand it. They don't let the Liberal hippy stuff about Jesus get in the way of Guns, property and profits.

And I appreciate that about America. We need more individualism and less whining.

I'd like to see the same figures according to religiosity of the state. The bible belt is not necessarily the same as the South and some of the Jesusland prairie states are the most religious and the poorest.

Babble babble babble babble. What a lot of toss.

Ultimately there is a correlation between religiosity and poverty worldwide. Nations such as Qatar and Kuwait and to a lesser extent the USA are outliers, statistical anomalies. The overall trend is that religiosity correlates with poverty and secularism correlates with wealth.

But as is mentioned you have to be careful when conflating correlation with causation. Is it secularism that creates the wealth or does wealth tend to move societies towards secularism? Noticing a pattern is great, it tells us something about the world. Finding out why the pattern exists is the bigger part of the battle.

jesus is not liberal hippy stuff. Jesus is neo conservative, war mongering, tea bagging stuff, but dont let that utter hypocrisy get in the way of your guns and profits.

Yes...that's the way they choose to interpret it...

Jesus was a communist. What's written in the religious book has little to do with what people do or believe is written in their religious book. Being a Christian and looking up to Ayn Rand also don't go together...but many pull it off successfully (see Ron Paul and Paul Ryan).

And I solute them for it.

Yeah...I don't know what that all is about. I'm more of a Fiscal/Economics/Capitalism kind of guy.

I want to cut your Medicare, cut your Social Security, lay off a lot of Govt workers and send them packing to the Private sector. But hey...at least I don't care about you having an abortion or Gay marriage or if you use drugs. Personally, all three are good as it keeps the population low. Less people, less jobs needed to make our Presidents look good on paper....I.E. the Unemployment rate.
