[Stats] Nearly Half of Europeans Don't Rate Religion

"A survey of 30,000 people in 27 European Union member countries found that nearly half of them -- 46 percent -- attach no importance at all to religion. The report came from the statistical agency of the EU, Eurostat (Luxembourg).


When asked what values they "cherish above all", respondents overwhelmingly chose "peace" (52 percent) and "respect for human life" came second (43 percent). Democracy got 24 percent. Way down at the bottom -- 11th out of 11 -- was "religion" with a meager seven percent." Mar. 7, 2007

So much for morality's dependance on religion!
