Many people deny God all over the world but what about the top atheist or least religious contries in the world? Now Insider Money gives the answer to us in their latest article. There are big debates among religious and atheist people. Atheist usually say that horrible wars have been fought throughout the whole human history in the name of God – this is one of the main reason of atheist people against religion.

If we people make God involve in wars, well it’s our fault and not God’s. We – humans – are simply not able to live in peace, we always feel the need to fight other nations, other people, other countries. We want their land, their cattle, horses, forests, water. It’s our shame, not God’s. If we examine the holly books of various religions we can learn that all of them encourage us to live in peace. But there are leaders, conquistadors who want more, who mean to conquer, occupy other countries – and they usually use God’s name to achieve this.

Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three top atheist or least religious contries in the world.

The first one is Denmark that  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 second country is South Korea. South Korea is also not a very religious country, with the number of people who marked themselves as nonreligious reaching 31%, while the number of atheists count for 15%. However, even though this country has a lot of people with no religion, it is also a home to all the world’s major religions, such as Christianity, Buddhism, Confucianism, and Islam. The last country for today is France with the significant percentage of atheists, that is, even 29, while the percentage of nonreligious people is slightly bigger, namely 34. It is why France is on the list of top 15 atheist or least religious countries in the world, with the strong secular system, also known as laicism, being very strict when it comes to religion in the public sphere.
