This year is the first time there are more non-believers than believers in The Netherlands. Every ten years there is a research on this topic. Since 1966 the number of believers in God reduced from 78% to 42%. The number of agnostics raised from 16% to 34% and the number of atheists from 6 to 24%. In politics religion plays no significant role, already for a long time. And nobody has ever said: ‘May God bless the (beautiful country of) The Netherlands’ - if someone does, everybody will laugh.
And nobody ever said, It’s going to be the Netherlands first! The Netherlands first! From this day forward it’s going to be the Netherlands first!” If someone does, everybody will laugh.
