More about money

A friend of mine who hosts the Border Reflections blog turned me on to this post at J. Blake Huggins' blog. It's a graphic that compares a country's wealth vs. its religiosity.

Any thoughts on what my contribute to this trend? Do you think it's accurate? Of course, I'm not exactly sure what the criteria are. What is religiosity? How often you go to church? Your actual feelings about the divine? Whether you're an actual member of a denomination?

To be honest, I've got no idea. I have ones that would probably border on being snarky, but I'm trying to get away from that on about half the things I think about. I am surprised that the U.S. is in the middle of the religiosity axis, though. We boast about being so religious, with church attendance figures in the 70s or something, the last I heard or read. (Of course, I might be pulling that number outta my butt.)

thanks for the link. it is definitely a thought provoking graph. the atlantic article is good as well and addresses some of the issues you raise. unfortunately it hasn't been put online yet. it's in the march issue. thanks again.
