0.0% of Icelanders 25 years or younger believe god created the world, new poll reveals

Posted by doctore0 on January 14, 2016

Sweet :)

Iceland seems to be on its way to becoming an even more secular nation, according to a new poll. Less than half of Icelanders claim they are religious and more than 40% of young Icelanders identify as atheist. Remarkably the poll failed to find young Icelanders who accept the creation story of the Bible. 93.9% of Icelanders younger than 25 believed the world was created in the big bang, 6.1% either had no opinion or thought it had come into existence through some other means and 0.0% believed it had been created by God.

The poll, which was conducted by the polling firm Maskína on behalf of Siðmennt, The Icelandic Ethical Humanist Association, an association of Icelandic atheists, found that 46.4% of Icelanders identify as religious, which is the lowest figure to date.

Younger people and inhabitants of Reykjavík are least religious
Older people are far more likely to profess religious beliefs and to identify as Christian than those who are younger. 80.6% of those older than 55 identified as Christian and only 11.8% said they were atheists. At the same time 40.5% of people who were 25 years or younger said they were atheists, and only 42% said they were Christian. Traditional Christian beliefs also seem more common outside of Reykjavík, where 77-90% of people identified as Christian and 7.1-18 were atheists, compared to 56.2% of people in Reykjavík who identified as Christian and 31.4% as atheist.

New Zealand: Pastafarian marriage ceremonies approved

Posted by doctore0 on December 17, 2015


New Zealand has given approval to the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster to carry out marriage ceremonies in the country.

Members of the church call themselves Pastafarians and believe that the world was created by an airborne spaghetti and meatballs-based being, although its own website notes that some followers consider it to be a satirical organisation.

The official notice was published online in New Zealand’s government gazette. Registrar-general Jeff Montgomery says his decision was based purely on whether the organisation upholds or promotes religious beliefs, or philosophical or humanitarian convictions. “No judgement is made on the validity of those beliefs or convictions,” he tells Stuff.co.nz website.

The church’s lead official, or Top Ramen, prefers to remain anonymous, but tells Radio New Zealand that the next step is to nominate a marriage celebrant for approval. “We are a bona fide church, and our people do like to get married, some of them several times,” she says, adding that Pastafarian wedding attire can range from pirate outfits to the traditional colander headgear. “We can wear the pirate gear, we can wear the pasta gear, we’re quite flexible.”
