Islam to become world’s most popular religion this century- Instituto Manquehue

#Islam is the fastest-growing religion and is set to overcome Christianity as the world’s most popular faith by the year 2100, according to the Pew Research Center. In 2010, there were around 1.6 billion Muslims in the world, the report reveals, noting that the figure amounted to roughly 23 percent of the world’s population. Islam is currently the world’s fastest growing religion and the second-largest after Christianity.

Christians constituted roughly 31 percent of the global population in 2010, or about 2.2 billion. By 2050, however, the number of followers of the world’s two largest religions may become equal.

“If current demographic trends continue, the number of Muslims is expected to exceed the number of Christians by the end of this century,” Pew says.

One of the reasons for this rapid growth is that Muslims tend to have more children than members of other religious groups.

Muslim women across the globe have 3.1 children on average, compared to only 2.3 for all other groups.

The results also indicate that on average, followers of Islam are becoming younger – seven years younger than the median age of non-Muslims.

“As a result, a larger share of Muslims already are, or will soon be, at the point in their lives when they begin having children. This, combined with high fertility rates, will fuel Muslim population growth,” Pew says.

This means that Christian populations may soon be squeezed out of some traditionally Christian countries. The rate of conversion will be aided by the increased migration trends into North America and Europe.

Pew says that “10% of all Europeans will be Muslims by 2050,” while Muslims in the US will make up 2.1 percent of the population by mid-century, “surpassing people who identify as Jewish on the basis of religion as the second-largest faith group in the country.”

Dit Is Normaal wanted to see what people would make of some of the Bible’s most extreme points of view if they were presented as Islamic.

So they disguised a copy of the Bible as the Qur’an and read sections of it to people.

Needless to say...

…they were far from impressed.
