in 2020 there is a resurgence of faith due to a growing lack of education around the world and thye start to ostracise scientists/athiest.

Antarctica, where a city will be built into the ice using geothermal energy. Nuclear weapons will be placed strategically around ice sheets. If anyone threatens the fledgling nation the nuclear detonations will cause massive ice sheets to slide into the ocean, causing massive flooding and tidal waves across the world.

RAPTURE!!

>> No.1791968

Japan I guess. I believe they have the lowest percentage of christians compared to any developed country (~1-2%), and basically no muslims or other seriously religious people, and they aren't too shabby at science either. In fact if you combined Japan and South Korea's total scientific research last year they'd surpass the U.S's output. South Korea is a lot like Japan but with more Christians and generally more retarded (look up something called "fan death), so I'd rather go somewhere else.

Ideally I'd pick a European country, but I'd beware because of all the muslims immigrating there, within like 40 or 50 years OP's scenario will actually be basically true in parts of Europe.

Yeah, except along the outer wall. Most have a noticable incline to the glass that doesn't fit furniture and that I kept bashing my head on when getting up in the middle of the night to take a shit.

An outer wall apartment has about 1/3rd less space than the rest but they're in the highest demand. People have weird priorities.

Well, I guess we can't stop you. I quite liked the low population density here, but I'd sacrifice that for helping out science.

If we embraced science then we could develop new technology and weapons faster, we would be behind in numbers but we would have better guns

And we are an island nation that is mostly rural, aka a guerrilla fighters wet dream (the ultimate equalizer, just look at the Taliban vs US, nearly 10 years of rape by cave dwelling retards), and we got alot of guns for our population size (1 gun for every 4 people, not including the military's ones)

No, I mean, it'd be like saying you're a germ theorist or a globularist. Obviously people at the time identified as those things but they quickly fell out of use for obvious reasons later on.

It just sounds weird. Picking out an implicit and largely irrelevant aspect of reality and stating it. Probably needed stating in 2010 but if it's any consolation that won't last.

But surely they would appreciate a large number of scientists and engineers in a time of crisis. And, since we're considering which would be the best country (not the most zoophilic, sheepfucker), Japan wins...

Besides, Japan would allow for excellent protection, and in becoming more technology-centric (and having everywhere else cease progress) Japan would wind up with an army of robots and lasers and shit, making it indestructible and eventually the conqueror of the world. Which would happen.

I guess. There are small religious populations in most habs but their beliefs are dilute to the point you wouldn't recognize them. Most consider their god or gods to be metaphorical and believe that was the intended meaning all along.

It's silly but they're quiet and unassuming to the point of invisibility and it's no secret that it's because of remnant terrorism. Given what outsiders believe, the sincere Christians living in any given hab will naturally hesitate to rock the boat lest they appear sympathetic or even complicit with the outsiders. That's the fear I think, it doesn't take much to get a Christian to launch into a defensive, apologetic tirade about how they can't be lumped in with the outsiders even if nobody in the room said anything to that effect.

I wish Singularians were that reserved and respectful. Or that they could be legally marched outside and left there.

>Implying they'll want to risk an all out confrontation when we've developed Star Trek style Phasers and energy shields

The shields sound like a longshot, but they can already be done primitively now. Something like a plasma trapped in a magnetic field I think it is.

With no social stigma and ample funding our productivity would be through the roof. Like wartime periods where suddenly the government is throwing a shit load of money at science and organising research. Look what happened from that, your laptop is a direct result.

And who's going to develop new stuff for the army of the rest of the world in this futuristic vison where scientists are ostrasied. It will go from being nerdy, to a complete social nono to study science at school in these countries. They'll go back to sending in human waves
