Dr. Allan H. Clark replied to Alan's discussion The reason why the United States has such a higher rate of religion compared to the UK
"In the United States the rivalry between intellect and emotion in religion was early on in our history resolved in favor of emotion by the two "great awakenings" of 1730-1755 and 1790-1840. Protestant evangelicals tilted the tension toward…"

"Certainly. The randomness of radioactive decay is a good counterexample to the principle of sufficient reason. It also furnishes an example to the identity of indiscernables, another Leibniz principle."
