Two points. 1) A correlation does not mean there is a causal link, so you should not imply that the presence of religion causes a nation to be less peaceful, unless you have evidence of the link. 2) If there is a causal link, it could work both ways - i.e. either that a lack of religion causes peace, or that peace causes people to abandon their religion.

If you check his/her website you'll find they've tried to establish this link on many different factors. Personally, I feel it's fairly representative, however it doesn't consider factors beyond statistical anaylsis.

Latest comment: As was once said "Statistics are like a street light with no bulb. Great to lean on but shedding **** all light on anything". Or something like that. I am a devout atheist and would like to believe this bollocks but I can't believe it is that simple.
