Islamic rise, Christian rise

Reader comment on item: A Christian Boom

Submitted by Stephen Tyler (United Kingdom), Nov 26, 2002 at 08:07

Christianity is a declining religion; it is losing demographically and migrating rapidly to third world countries, where fault line wars occur.

I don't think there is any way to stop the Islam - Christianity war which is occuring, but we have to remember, the Muslims have the demography, the resources, and the experience of resistance. They also have something else, as well: all of the oil, and a connection to the other enemy of Christianity, China.

This forms the most prolific axis on the planet. Combine this with the coming era of hidden weapons of mass destruction, and you have a scenario which could flare up any time soon. Probably it will flare when Bush tells it to flare by going into Iraq. But War is like roulette -- you don't know how it will end. However, one thing is for certain, difficulties are coming, and it will not be easy to run an economy, a just-in-time economy without oil in the future. If we don't do somthing about this, our people will cannibalise each other, and this could happen at any time. This is my greatest fear.
