For the First Time, There Are More Atheists in Norway Than Believers

Congratulations, Norway!

The percentage of Norwegians who say they don’t believe in God has, for the first time, surpassed those who do. It’s 39% atheist, 37% believer, and 23% who don’t know, according to a survey of 4,000 people by the annual social-cultural study Norwegian Monitor:

The figures mark a clear change from just two years ago, when the number of believers versus non-believers was still equal.

In the country’s capital, Oslo, only 29 per cent said they were believers, while the sparsely-populated county of Vest-Agder in the north-west had the most believers at 44 per cent.

It’s worth mentioning that Norway is said to be one of the happiest countries in the world.

Good to know for when President Trump gets inaugurated.
