A surprising map of where the world’s atheists live


It’s a pity this map is incomplete. Looks like China and Japan come out on top as the most atheistic which is not surprising if you take into account that Buddhism, Confucianism, and Shintoism are non-theistic philosophies. Then the Czech Republic, Australia, Ireland and Iceland all rate next which does surprise me. By contrast, in other polls I’ve read that the Philippines is the most religious nation, and this map shows the USA, Canada, and Russia as having the same relatively low percentage of atheists.
