    I have Always Believe this Growing Up. And I Just Read A Book, About the Vary Same Thing that I had Always Believe in. And it is that The Western World is More Spiritual, then We are in the East. So Way is that? I don't Mean that We in the East Aren't Spiritual, Because we are... Did Something Happen in the West the Cos Something to Manifest More Out there? Or We have More Science then they do?

Where in the east and west are you talking about exactly? I consider India myself to be the most spiritual place. Japan and China have fallen on this scale. The west is quickly dropping its traditional spirituality and has always taken the lead in more independent thinking.

We Asians have more common sense. Where Nippon had laws against "psychics" and Tendai monks preach that prophecy is superstition and blind faith is not realistic. American Evangelicals are grasping nonsense and actually going against proven science and archaeology. 

  I can't agree with this finding. I think the West is more superstitious and willing to fall for B.S  whereas we Asians are bigger pragmatists.

And us Europeans are smack bang in the middle. Perfectly balanced as all things should be.

It never seems too insightful. But it is quite bias. :rolleyes:

That's rather vague and evasive. Anything in particular?

What is the name of the book?

And I think there is a difference between 'spirituality' and 'religiousness'.

In the US, there is definitely a strong bias against non-biblical faith, such as paganism. In my own area, I know of a pagan temple that has been refused recognition as a religious organization, yet any idiot can slap "Dr", "Pastor" or "Minister" in front of their name and open up the "Third United Reformed Church of the Jewish Anglican Quakers for Jesus Church" and immediately claim tax exempt status.

Which is why the Seabrook Buddhist Temple and the Deerfield Sikh Temple have trained temple guards.

Really? I did not know that. There is a beautiful Buddhist Temple near Woodstock, but I haven't had the opportunity to visit.

I wasn't really thinking of physical violence, but there is a strong pro-Judeo-Christian bias in the local government where I live.

With the Sikh Temple there is but the Buddhist Temple has been there since it was a internment camp so they can't anything.
