It seems that OKCupid has a new toy, wherein they tell you what states and countries you have the best and worst matches in. I wasn't the least bit surprised by my state results:

Worst:

Arkansas -- 64.3
Mississippi -- 64.8
Alabama -- 65.1
Wyoming -- 65.4
Tennessee -- 65.6

Best:

Massachusetts -- 74.9
Vermont -- 74.4
Oregon -- 74.2
Washington -- 73.1
Maryland -- 72.9

It seems I don't get along all that well with the south. Go figure. The countries were a little bit more surprising:

Worst:

Pakistan -- 48.6
Saudi Arabia -- 49.8
Egypt -- 50.6
Kenya -- 51.8
Indonesia -- 55.0

Best:

Switzerland -- 78.8
Austria -- 78.5
Israel -- 78.0
Sweden -- 77.5
Iceland -- 77.3

Israel? ISRAEL?! Umm, no.

I've been trying to find a way to put a vague notion into words.

I don't think I have a lot in common with people who would choose to live in a country that is to fundamentally married to a religion.

And yes, to some extent I'm mixing the politics of the country with the citizenry.

At this point most of them were born there, or fled places like the Soviet Union. I don't think 'choice' is quite the appropriate word anymore (as in US or Israel?)

And I'm going to guess (without first verifying) that the percentage of atheists in Israel is far higher than that in the US.

Yup, almost certainly.

"According to a 2004 Israel Central Bureau of Statistics Study on Israelis aged over 18 ... 43% are "secular". Among the seculars, 53% say they believe in God."
