With thanks for the tip to Michael S, by way of Tod Brilliant.

Here are some of the surveys the author may have based his strip on:

Relephant bonus:

“We need to understand the inadequacy of an educational system so slanted towards material values. The solution is not to give an occasional lecture, but to integrate ethics into the educational curriculum. To do this effectively requires a secular ethics, free of religious influence, based on common sense, a realistic view and scientific findings.” ~ Dalai Lama

Well, I LIVE here in Norway, and we have about 10-12% atheists/humanists in norway… NOT 70%!!! That cartoonpropaganda is selling you a lie. The Norwegian Church has about 75% of Norways population as members, which are baptised and confirmated… The rest of the population is spread over other religions and atheism with about 10%. It's interesting how atheism/socialism use LIES in their struggle to defeat religion… Atheism/humanism in Norway is rater hostile to the Norwegian Church, and tries to downplay its role… in the name of Science it seems. But the atheists also believe… in them selves, humanity and science -and as long as we still DO NOT KNOW some of the most fundamental forces in physics(there's about 11 Nobelprices waiting for those who figure it out), even the atheists has their share of belief 😉 Despite the humanism movement was started by a christian, today you can not be a humanist member in Norway and also have a church membership… 😮

The funny thing is when they DO speak Norwegian in Hell. Hell is a place in Norway, and yes, they DO have internet connection.
