Estonians least religious in the world

I dont know if you happened to read this article about a study that was done among the countries of the world. It is definitely an interesting read. Here is the beginning of it.

Five EU members figure among the world's top 10 least religious countries, with Estonia leading the list, a new poll has shown.

Just 14 percent of Estonians answered positively to the question: "Is religion an important part of your daily life?" according to a poll released by Gallup earlier this week.

Estonia is followed by Nordic countries Sweden and Denmark, where 17 and 18 percent of those asked answered positively to the same question.

The survey was carried in 143 countries, with an average of eight people out of 10 saying religion was an important part of their lives.
