Another thought experiment
While pondering, I came up with another thought experiment.
Say that Joe is a forty something Canadian
So Joe here a former atheist until about his twenties and during those times, his life was just as he would describe plain. It wasn't bad by any means, but it wasn't magnificent.
Then he finds Christianity, gets involved with churches and other Christian social groups after that, he feels his life has improved significantly. He is now in his forties and and has been part of the Christian community since he converted.
He looks around him and sees the people who influenced him most like Martin Luther King and Nelson Mendella were Christian. He reads the paper and sees his church is organizing another blood drive and the one across from it is setting up a fund raiser to fight parkinson's disease. He has travelled across Europe and saw the prosperious religious nations such as Romania, Portugal, Poland, Italy etc... In fact him and his Christian friends on on their way to Lebanon as part of the Red Cross to help provide relieve to refugees.
He surfs the web and sees stories similar to his.
Joe then concludes that religion is a positive influence on the world. He reasons that society would be better had every one been like him and his Christian friends.
Is he wrong? If so, what is wrong with his reasoning?
