Essay: Oregon atheists: Too soon old, too late smart!
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). 28% of the Oregon population declared they had "no religion". 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).
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% . 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! 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? The Austrian school of economics which predicted the Great Recession is on the rise! 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)."
