I grew up in VA which is 12% non-religious. Illinois, where I am now, is 15% non-religious. This particular town in IL seems to be 99% religious. 2 churches for every person

Wow, Washington state is 25% non-religious. Maybe that's where atheists go to retire.

I know what you mean. My state (PA) is only 12% non-religious....and I think the 88% of those who are live on my block!

In Colorado, where I grew up mostly, it runs a close second with Washington State ....21%. That surprised me!

Wow, Colorado is mostly Catholic? That is VERY surprising...I see more Protestant churches than I do Catholic. Hmm... but the 21% does NOT surprise me...

Hey, I see you're from Denver. My family is from Aurora. I was just there in June for my sister's wedding.

I actually live in Aurora! I just usually put Denver, because most people never know where Aurora is, unless they live in Colorado, or have some connections here.

That is so cool though.

This is a cool map, but I think when they say "non-religious" they don't mean atheist. They mean just secular people in general (atheist, agnostic and theist) KWIM?
