Default More poor people are religious than rich people.

I wish there was a statistic to back this up, but I'm sure it's true.
Anyway, PROVE ME WRONG.
Or, better yet - discuss.

Well, technically, we can't prove you wrong since you aren't technically right in the first place due to lack of statistics.

Thats why Catholicism was so popular, duh

This whole religious hope is a way to bring in the crowds. People think, I have nothing, life will not be just super easy for me. If I take God as my savior I get to go to heaven and in the meantime I can do anything no matter how bad to scrape a living.

There are too many rich religious people for this to be true. I think there's probably slight correlation with IQ, but even that's iffy; my physics teacher is certainly above average intelligence and he is religious. It's mainly how you grew up.

i know from personal experience, it sure seems that more poor people are religious, but sure there is no way to prove it, nor any correlation that makes either group any more well off than the other

There are statistics that indicate a correlation, "The survey finds a strong relationship between a country’s religiosity and its economic status. In poorer nations, religion remains central to the lives of individuals, while secular perspectives are more common in richer nations".

The study of theology, as it stands in the Christian churches, is the study of nothing; it is founded on nothing; it rests on no principles; it proceeds by no authority; it has no data; it can demonstrate nothing; and it admits of no conclusion.

On an unrelated note, I'd love to get an IQ test of the richest people in the country, of course that'll never happen.

This is because money is from the devil, and he rewards people who don't believe in God.

I believe it could work the other way around.

Wealthier nations are (mostly) comprised of generally intelligent people, therefore religions are not as needed.
However poorer nations are closer to their religion because it's a signal of hope for them.
