Actually the entire universe is godless when you consider the fact that it doesn't have any gods.

Lets take Oregon (my state).

Most of the population is in Portland/Salem "the north" so it outweighs the South by a couple million people.

The South part of Oregon is in the 80% believer group, and for that matter 60% conservative.

It would be interesting to see the regional numbers for the least religious.


If you are a believer and are wanting to live in Oregon move to So. Oregon.

If your are a non-believer then stay in the city.

godspeed,


freedom

I'm sure you'd see the same thing in Washington state except that it's the Seattle metro area in the west and the rest of the state to the east is fairly conservative and religious. Most major metropolitan areas tend to be fairly liberal and less religious although Dallas is an exception and has a high number of people who attend church regularly.

So people distracted with technology, materialism, and hedonism are less likely to be attracted to knowing their creator.

Are you saying people in the south are less distracted by these things then?

State of the States: Importance of Religion
I have to wonder about the accuracy of this when Utah is not somewhere at the top. The LDS in Utah are prolific and religion dominates almost all aspects of their lives.

Right, because people in the South do not own large houses, computers, or ipods. Only the godless do.
