Atheism-poverty link challenged.

Harry's Place has a link to the devastatingly simple reposté to Mark Steyn of the Telegraph who said " there aren't many examples of successful post-religious societies", the answer Japan secular yet very stable and despite being marred in recession for a long time very sucsessful. Personally I would also point out that it is the area's where there is the highest level of religous involvement in social life, that is the theocracies, tend to be piss poor hell holes.
