A CUNY 2000 religious survey declared Oregon to have the highest per capita number of atheists in the United States (people who answered "no religion" on a survey which admittedly includes agnostics and theists who don't identify with any particular religion).[1] 28% of the Oregon population declared they had "no religion".[2] According to the CUNY 2000 survey, Oregon had 7 times the rate of atheism than North Dakota.(people who answered "no religion" on a survey).[3]

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported in September of 2010 that Oregon had the 7th highest level of unemployment in the United States - an unemployment rate of 10.6% .[4] The unemployment rate in Oregon in September of 2010 was reported to be nearly three times the rate of God fearing North Dakota which had an unemployment rate of 3.7![5] If Oregon atheists are so smart, then why are so many of them unemployed? Unlike conservative economists, did they fail to predict the arrival of the Great Recession?[6] The Austrian school of economics which predicted the Great Recession is on the rise![7] By the way, the Boy Scouts, who affirm the existence of God, believe in being prepared! It appears as if words of Solomon still ring true today: "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Proverbs 1:7)."
