Did you know

that 65% of the world's population is neither Christian nor Atheist? Did you know by extension, that when you generalize the world's population into 2 groups (Christians who are persecuted by Atheists, and Atheists who hate Christians, especially) you are lying about about 4,564,193,418 people who are neither Christian nor Atheist, as well as all the Christians who aren't persecuted (that would be ALL the Christians in the US) and all the Atheists who don't hate Christians?

Just curious, based on the past few questions in this section, whether that little fact is actually common knowledge.

  • Based on the way the answers from the first question were twisted to justify the OP's own personal bias in the second question I"m not sure she even cares about the facts or common knowledge (especially since she appears to lack much of it).

    No, she just classifies them as Atheist. Remember the ONE post she deleted way back when where she stated any religion that WASN'T JW was "Atheist"

  • That only included about 41,000 differing denominations of Christians too.

  • Thank you for the numbers. I didn't know the specific statistics, but given how many religions, and branches of religions, there are in the world, it makes sense that neither Christians nor atheists would have any corner on the market. And, as you have said before, atheism isn't a religion.

  • Did you know that if you aren't Christian you're mentally unstable and should become a science experiment- but those who believe in science are mentally unstable? *insert crazy eyes

  • I guess some people just are supremely under-educated in those respects. I mean, when you're religion is the only right one, why should you bother learning anything about anyone else's? smh

  • Those of us who are not Christian are by default Atheist. You didn't know that, NP?
