in response to reader comment: What 20% of world population think

Submitted by Drew (United States), Oct 18, 2006 at 23:48

I'd wager a guess that over 20% of the world's population thinks it is morally acceptable to have sex before marriage. What does that say to you? 80% of the world apparently does not think that Mohammed was a prophet. What does that say to you? It should say nothing.

We should not be concerned or convinced by sheer numbers. It's illogical to believe that we live in a world of people who commit sin, the majority of which are spiritually lost (or worse yet, not even seeking), and then try to use a percentage of that population's thoughts on a particular subject as proof or supporting evidence, especially regarding the subject of diety or prophethood.
