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.

A creationist pastor mocked Hindus who were killed or injured when a religious idol fell on them as they worshipped.
One man was killed and three people were injured when a statue of the elephant god Ganesh collapsed during a worship service last month in India, and a video of the tragedy was circulated and widely reported last week.
Ray Comfort — who is probably best known for arguing that bananas disproved evolution, at least until he learned that they were the products of artificial selection by humans — posted a link to an article about the tragedy and urged his followers to donate to his Living Waters ministry.
“The Bible says that those who worship dumb idols, are just like them,” Comfort posted on his Facebook page. “How India needs the gospel! But we don’t have to go there to take it to them. We have the Internet.”
Comfort’s fans quickly picked up what he was laying down and praised God’s wrathful judgment.

CONCERN has been raised over a new religious pressure group which is being proposed by MSPs with the backing of an exclusively Christian organisation that aims to “heal wounds inflicted by atheism”.
Three of the five proposed MSPs who will join the group backed a parliamentary motion asserting that science could not disprove that God created the world in six days.
A proposal will go before a Holyrood committee today to win approval for a cross-party group on religious freedom, saying the new body would be open to members of all faiths and none.
However, it is being backed by the organisation Aid to the Church in Need UK, which describes its aim as healing “wounds inflicted by atheism” through “prayer, sacrifice, conversion, information and active charity”.
The charity, which says it supports “the Catholic faithful and other Christians”, has already pledged £800 in kind to the Holyrood group and it is proposed that its communications executive will act as the parliamentary group’s secretary.
Dave Thompson, an SNP backbencher, earmarked the current refugee crisis as an example of an issue the group would take an interest in.
Aid to the Church in Need UK is running a campaign to raise the profile of exclusively Christian suffering “at a time when the refugee crisis is dominating the headlines.”
