Which is to be expected from the EP model of why wars if you meant to 
write "prosperity."  Actually my case is that it's the future 
prospects more than the present that's important in keeping war mode 
shut off in human populations.

Since the evolutionary origin and function of religion is that of 
xenophobic memes that facilitate wars, you would expect religions to 
decline in places that are 1) have not been attacked for a long time 
and 2) have decent future prospects.
