Some people have claimed that countries with high rates of atheism are doing well in some areas, they would even argue BETTER than predominantely Christian nations. They cite examples like Norway, Finland, and Sweden who have more people who don’t believe in God than people who do, and they say they have the longest life expectancy, the best GDPs per capita, high literacy, good health, etc. They say if atheism is so bad, why are these countries doing so well?
What is a good response to this question? I would just like to let everyone know that I’m a devout Catholic, I receive the sacraments and fully agree with the Church. I just want a good response to these questions. Thanks.
