Literacy Rates For Cyprus.

Postby miltiades » Tue May 15, 2007 9:13 am

Came across this table of Literacy rates of the worlds nations.
It appears the more illiterate a nation is the more religious it is likely to be. I wonder why.
Cyprus rates at 97.6% , Greece at 97.5% and Turkey 86.5% .
The table also provides separate rates of literacy for men and women , as well as fertility rates!! Interestingly , Nigel with the lowest literacy rate has the highest fertility rate , a noticeable fact is that in most cases the lower the literacy rate the higher the fertility rate.

Why did you not just say what you mean. Are you becoming soft in your old age or just not drunk enough at the moment. What you meant to say is Moslem countries and not just religious did you not. I think in real terms the Greek Orthodox Church has shown it self to be more influential (for want of a better word) on politics than its Islamic counterpart as far as Turkey is concerned. The one thing that is true though is that, while the west has been playing a game of risk with the middle eastern countries century after century and bombing the shit out of them as soon as they move a little forward in technology, that eating has been a greater priority than reading.

You just dint get it do you . I hope you did not spend much time looking for the "TRNC" It doesn't exist .
Look Zan , can we not have a debate on a subject without you accusing me of being either an Islamophobic , a drunk or a prejudiced individual.
My point is , and I have made this before , show me a nation where religion is the driving force and I will show you a backward nation.
