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.
That is a valid point, and Id say it is the latter part of your statement that is true.

religion is used to control the masses especially the poor and uneducated.

Instead of solving problems head on and trying to find a solution, uber religious countries turn to god instead of tackling the problem. The problems of the society and nation never get solved and instead religion is used as a band aid.

Religion stifles progress.

And I appreciate that about America. We need more individualism and less whining.
Yes Atlas Shrugged was a good book. Relax.

The only thing you have proven in this thread is the inadequacy of the modern American Educational system.

It absolutely astounds me how even your failure to understand what you're reading doesn't give you pause and you continue to rant on.

I suppose that is related to the statistic that tells us that although your generation of Americans is lacking in the smarts department, they're number one in the world when it comes to self esteem.

Hey airhead, reread the thread .

The point was both made (by me) and then later confirmed by another poster who is far from sympathetic to religion.

You're a moron, pick up a book and learn something about the world before you try to critique it.
