Except that of course it's not, it's based on who your parents are. There's no "jewish" on the map until 1948, but there were still plenty of jewish people, just living in areas tagged by other religions. It's a great over-simplification. I wouldn't call the USA all-christian, even though it's still nominally majority christian.

I agree with you mostly, although people are also heavily influenced by their friends, relatives, school, governments, etc. I'll change my wording to "correlated strongly", which is more accurate.

Destiny is my science fiction movie about the future of humanity. It's an epic, similar in breadth and scope to 2001: A Space Odyssey.
