Bad news for atheists in France! The atheist Dr. Niles Barber is not going to like hearing this!

On July 10, 2012, I published article entitled Does atheism thrive on economic prosperity? Does religion prosper when people are desperate and ignorant?

In that article I cited the work of the atheist Dr. Niles Barber who wrote:
Atheists are heavily concentrated in economically developed countries, particularly the social democracies of Europe.

In my new study of 137 countries (1), I also found that atheism increases for countries with a well-developed welfare state (as indexed by high taxation rates). 
 In response, I wrote:
 Perhaps, an argument can be made that increased prosperity plus socialism (which is an ideology of the secular left so atheistic thought would be expected to be more prevalent to begin with) increases atheism....
Well, it seems as if secular France is headed toward a LOT of economic pain and the secular elite in France appear to know this.  The Labour Minister of France just declared that France is "totally bankrupt".

My, my, my! The atheist Dr. Niles Barber is not going not like hearing this!  How can you have a generous welfare state in a bankrupt country?  What are lazy atheists who lack the Protestant work ethic going to do now? Break down and humbly pray for a job to the God they know exists?  And we know that many so-called internet atheists know that God exists. See: Atheist admits that evidence doesn't matter to him

Will Christian evangelicalism continue to be the fastest growing religion in France?
