" Islam is spreading to fast in the west that it will be dominant by the year 2025." Speaking of dumb comments, this one is pretty dumb.
The only people who keep repeating this fallacy are muslims themselves. As far as statistics go, atheism unfortunately is the fastest growing belief in Europe not Islam. Christianity is growing faster than Islam, especially in Africa and Asia. Right now there are 360 million African Christians. By the year 2030 that number will double.

Same thing in the case of Asia. Right now there are 125 million Christians in Asia, by the year 2025 that number will also double. That is why religious leaders and other observers think the center of Christianity will move south because Europe is becoming increasingly secular.

An increasing number of muslims are quietly leaving Islam for fear of their lives. The only reason Christianity does not have a bigger success in muslim countries is because violence is used to intimidate christians.

So that story of Islam being the fastest growing faith is a fable concocted by muslims to fool the naive and uninformed.
