There free way of thinking and good education system is partly responsible, but mostly its their proportional democracy with many more seats going to women, with many new parties being formed, with much public imput at every level, and SUBSTANTIVE equality. Well cared for people, with many choices, and options, have lower rates of crime and murder.

This is truly a good thing. Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland are amongst the most enlightened countries in the world and shine their lights continually.

...There are also other things that breed conformity than just Religion, speaking with regards to creativity, curiosity, and critical thinking.

Being acceptable in society is one(individuality and uniqueness is a joke nowadays), media and entertainment, money, power, and fame, also breeds conformity and try to destroy individuality. I'm actually a Christian, an innovator, a scientific researcher, and an engineer all at the same time!

You can tell me that you've found a way to break the Law of Conservation of energy and I'll celebrate with you about it. Tell it to some deeply atheist scientists and you'll never see their face again.
