I got this from http://www.coolinfographics.com/blog/2010/3/31/the-world-christianity-maps.html and here http://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2010/03/the-christianity-map/37619/
This map shows the world

the US


on the basis of google searches.

On the basis of "More Jesus" "More Allah" "More Buddha" etc., here is the world.

Since the dots evidently represent groups of people, I think that I would prefer to live in the "Godless" regions.

I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

The dots actually represent what comes up in most searches in Google and where it is focused.

According to that map Finland would be mostly Orthodox with a tiny bit of Pentecostalism while in reality it's mostly Lutheran.

What's with the pockets of Presbyterian searches in California, Georgia and Texas? Smiley

No, but as they explain on the website, the UK is obviously mostly Protestant, but chances are that they aren't typing in "Protestant" into Google searches. (they really should have added Anglican to the list)

I take it as an indication that many Finns are rethinking that last part.

We can always hope that. Last year 978 people joided to the Church of Finland and 678 divorced from Her but I don't know whether that includes immigrants or just converts.
