[color=gold]Percent atheists, agnostics, non-believers in God by Country

This is an interesting chart (pardon the large size of it, there's a lot of countries in my data). It shows what percentages of atheists, agnostics exist in each country. Interesting which countries show the highest percentage and which show the lowest.

The US has the LOWEST percentage at 3%! I don't know what to make of that, is that good or bad? Means that the majority believe in God and/or religion, 97% of the people in the US. What does everyone think?
P.S. You can change the graph in the above link to your tastes, its a smart chart...

i've heard differing numbers for atheists in america...

oddly, this is by far the lowest one i've heard about. before this i always heard it was in the 6-15% range, so i'm going to say that this might not be the most accurate chart

...and i've heard that sweden might be a tad which i mean about 40% higher.

wish i had the time to post sources on this, will do so later.
