We present you with the list of the top atheist or least religious countries in the world. Insider Monkey has recently published an arresting article about it. The number of religious people around the world is in decline, and for the first time, there is a country that can be marked as the “officially atheist country”, with more people who marked themselves as nonbelievers. As you probably already suppose or have read somewhere, this is also the least religious country in Europe – her Majesty Norway. In this country, even 39% of people say that they are non-believers, while only 37% say they are believers. Even atheists have certain philosophies that they follow and rely on, and there are certainly many philosophers that are a must read for everyone who declares as atheists. However, besides these nonreligious countries and nonreligious people, atheists and philosophers, there also those countries that can be marked as most religious in the world.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three top atheist or least religious countries in the world from their list.
The first one is Denmark. Denmark is the country where nonreligious people count around 20% of the whole nation, while there are around 11% of declared atheists. However, it is important to know that Evangelical Lutheran is the most spread religion in this country. The next country on our short list now is Belgium. There are a lot more of those people who marked themselves as nonreligious in Belgium, reaching the percentage of 32, while the atheists in this country count 9.2%. In the majority of cases, those who declared as believers belonged to some form of Christianity, although there are other religions, too. At last, but not least let’s check out Germany’s numbers! Germany has the similar situation like the previous country, and the number of nonreligious people here counts for 33%, while atheists make up for the 15% of the population. Other religious people are usually Christians in this country, although it is also very diverse in that sense.
