Ignorance Rules Islamist World - Taqiyya Venerated
Reader comment on item: White House Nonchalance [toward the Middle East]
Submitted by Mark Baratto (United States), Mar 26, 2006 at 13:28There is unity of belief amongst goat herders and servants of fantasy. But the kool-aid crew, although entitled to their own opinion, are NOT entitled to their own facts.
Harrak has probably never taken a statistics class, but the rest of us deserve some clarity on the subject.
Christians at 1.9B make up 31% of the worlds population.
Muslims at 1.2B make up 20% of the worlds population.
(How is it that 1400 years after ‘Allah's Deception' (Koran 4:156), Christianity has become the worlds dominant religion? It must be an infidel lie!)
The world growth rate for Muslims is 2.13 vs 1.36 for Christians. It is primarily due to a birth rate among Muslim families that is double that of Christians. This occurs primarily in third world countries where dirt floors, thatched roofs and large families are common. However, when one looks at actual conversion rates, that is where men and women CHOOSE their religious belief system rather than being BORN into it, Christianity is chosen over Islam twice as often.
Christians are making twice as many converts as Muslims even though birth rates are similar. Christianity is the fastest growing religion.
Muslim birth rates are higher, but Christians are 13 times more effective at making converts. Even Jews are growing at a faster rate. Christianity is the fastest growing religion.
Muslims are growing faster than Christians, but the majority of this growth is due to immigration, not conversion. Buddhism is the fastest growing religion in Europe.
Muslims are growing faster than Christians due mainly to the defection of Catholics to non-religious. Muslims make up only 1/3 of 1% of the population, while Christians comprise over 92%. The fastest growing religion in South America is Bahia, 2.87%.
Muslims are growing faster than Christians in North America, but this is due to immigration, not conversion. Canada alone immigrates enough Muslims to account for virtually all the Muslim increase in North America.
It is because of the kindness and generosity of the Christian majority that Muslims are even allowed to immigrate, often fleeing from persecution between hostile Muslim sects in their own Islamic countries.
There is no real conversion, in any measurable numbers, of non-Muslims to Islam, with the exception of marriage, usually a woman, who is forced to convert. Atheists and Buddhism are the fastest growing.
Muslims are growing faster than Christians in Oceania, but are in 5th place. "New Religionists" are the fastest growing, then Buddhists, Sikhs, & Zoroastrians.
Every 24 hours, the world population of Christians increases by 69,000, Muslims by 68,000. The vast majority of the 69,000 Christians will be educated, and Christianity their chosen religion. The majority of the 68,000 Muslims will be illiterate peasants, 50% of them (women) forbidden by penalty of death to acquire even a miniscule education, the remainder learning only what the imams tell them.
More new Christians are added to the worlds population every day than any other religion on earth. This is solid statistical fact.
The myth that Islam is the world's fastest growing religion is just another attempt by midgets to fool the kuf – taqiyya at it's most insidious.
Hitler's propaganda minister, Goebbels, said ‘If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth.' The Islamist spin doctors are some of his best students, often aided by the liberal left who prefer fantasy to reality.
