I still want to move to Seattle. Will the atheists repent when the Big One hits?

Although several of the Southern States are not seemingly religious, and in particular cities like Raleigh, NC, they are oppressively religious just 15 miles outside town--with dozens of church signs, anti-abortion signage, etc.

I love that part of NC, and many parts of the South and would consider living in any one of dozens of towns/cities but it would upset me--my loss!

Why would we repent when something we already know is going to happen, occurs? Science tells us that the quake is coming, not religion.

Want a good example of a athiest country? Try the Soviet Union, which banned religion, and exterminated millions of its own people. Nope no corruption there.

Want another example? Norway. The richest country in the world when it comes to average income, purchasing power and GDP per capita. It also has one of the lowest crime rates in the world, it's the second least corrupt country in the world according to experts and is consider one of the most liberal countries in the world.

70% of Norway's population is atheists, and only 8% go to church regularly.
