Just because there are lots of Muslims don't mean it is truth. In China there are over a billion athiests (communists). Besides, the statement that there are "over a billion muslims" is misleading. You have over a billion people being held hostage to Islamic governments who forbid the people from studying any other religious ideas etc. Most have no idea what real Islam is. You ask why they fast during ramadan and they say "My parents do" My grandparents did" "I have to""its the law". If Islam is so good why are so many fleeing Islamic countries to go to countries with Christian roots? Why are so many N. African muslims drowning in the mediterranean every year as they attempt to escape their Islamic countries? The tecnology etc. is in the west. All Islamic countries have is oil. Be glad the west has been influenced by christianity, because without that all the oil would have been in the hands of non-muslims by now. Turn the tables. Lets say Islam has all the hightech weapons, military etc and all the west has is oil. Do you think Islam would not forcfully take that oil? History says that they conquer whenever possible.
