According to a mathematical model researchers have applied to 100-years worth of census data, religions are to become extinct in nine nations.

Dr Wiener [of the Research Corporation for Science Advancement, and the University of Arizona] said: "In a large number of modern secular democracies, there's been a trend that folk are identifying themselves as non-affiliated with religion; in the Netherlands the number was 40%, and the highest we saw was in the Czech Republic, where the number was 60%."

The countries examined were Australia, Austria, Canada, the Czech Republic, Finland, Ireland, the Netherlands, New Zealand and Switzerland. In other words, all those countries that the United States calls "Socialists," have better social programs and don't generally go kill people in other countries in the name of a deity.
