BBC Focus magazine recently ran a featured article behind the science of sin: its definition; the biological triggers that cause us to sin; and how modern technology may be making us more sinful than ever before.
The article also included a colorful chart titled “The Most Sinful Nation on Earth.” Taking into account the Seven Deadly Sins in terms of their modern equivalents, it compiled statistical databases to find the most sinful countries:
According to this chart, Australia is overall the most sinful nation on earth, followed by the United States. This was pretty surprising to me — I would think the U.S. would take the top spot without a fight!
The #1 countries for each category are:
- Lust: South Korea
- Gluttony: USA
- Greed: Mexico
- Sloth: South Africa
- Envy: Australia
- Pride: Iceland
Are you surprised by the results?
