‘Africans among world’s most religious people, study finds’

Reason #4682 to be an atheist; the continent with the highest HIV/AIDS rates, ongoing genocide, and generally worst living conditions on the globe, also just happens to be the most religious. SHHHHHHHHOCKING. The fabled magician in the sky has really helped those people out.

(CNN) — At least half of all Christians in sub-Saharan Africa believe Jesus will return to Earth in their lifetime — part of a pattern that indicates the region is among the most religious places in the world, according to a huge new study.

It’s not only Christians in Africa who experience their religion passionately, either. Nearly one in three Muslims in the region expect to see the re-establishment of the caliphate — Islam’s golden age — before they die.
