All Islam is radical, its the way it is, the entire religion is based on a belief system of severe control that has not altered in a thousand years.

I suppose anyone who follows an ancient religious book to the absolute letter is a radical. Only a small minority of Christians Jews and some oddball cults go to those extremes. Islam is a way of living and a way of ruling and until Islam is separated from the role of Governance it will always keep Muslims in the dark ages, they will stagnate). Isolationism is not the way forward

Maybe people want control, that’s why despite all the bad publicity from the evil jihadis Islam is still on the rise.


Though out in California you have gay Mosques, or what they call mixed mosques where woman and men pray together, gays are invited, I think that’s a good development. Islam cannot not modernize it will be too much pressure in the west.

Sure backward countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh and Saudi will remain the way they are but even there change will come, just slower

Brendan Kirby reports for LifeZette


Muslims will double their share of the population in the United States by 2050 and surpass Christianity as the world’s dominant religion by the end of the century, according to a Pew Research Center report released last week.


With the efforts of the EU, Australia and American governments to import and increase the standing of Muslims worldwide, it would appear that our leaders are cow toeing to the soon to be dominant religion.

For many Christians, this is a troubling sign considering the massive violence problem Islam has displayed since it's inception and cowardly treatment of women.

Yet, all is not lost for Christianity as one statistic FIRMLY backs up:

Via Wikipedia


According to a study from 2015, Christians hold the largest amount of wealth (55% of the total world wealth), followed by Muslims (5.8%), Hindus (3.3%) and Jews (1.1%). According to the same study it was found that adherents under the classification Irreligion or other religions hold about 34.8% of the total global wealth.[3]


As we can see from this one statistic, Islam is an extremely distant second in terms of religious wealth.

Would you agree ATS that even though Islam may soon outnumber Christians on the total population scale, it will be relegated to poor countries and have a difficult time spreading due to the overall wealth gap?



You can critique Christianity all day and intelltual community celebrates

You critique Islam you're a bigoted racist Islamophobic sexist xenophobe.

Yes Christians will lose the modern religion war because progressives and the media hate western society and converting to Islam is trendy.

The only way for both to lose is for atheists and agnostics to speak out and be equally critical but unfortunately theyre majority apologists

I like the holy Trinity of Death that is USA/France/UK, Israel, and Saudi Arabia. Christian nations which spreads death around the globe, partnered with the Jewish State which pretty much dominates that foreign policy, and the Islamic Capital of Saudi Arabia that cooperates and guides the USA foreign policy as well.

The primary perpetrators of global death of aggression are not in Muslim. Hell the Saudis tend to die more than they kill when it comes to fighting their neighbors.

We can use our two minutes hate wishing all Muslims to death in a nuclear fire, or we can acknowledge that they only play a secondary role in the global death count compared to the beacons of Christian hope found in the West, and the pockets of militant Islam that they have been exposed funding, arming, and supporting logistically in order to represent the very horror they mind control people into believing, like an impressionable child.

I am curious from a historical perspective which societies and cultures have been genocided into irrelevance by Islam?? Serious inquiry here. I need to gain perspective. As far as I know, two whole continents, an entire hemisphere really and its people and cultures were genocided into irrelevance by Christians from Spain, Portugal, England, France, and the USA over the course of three centuries (17th-20th).

I'll own that, I won't be a hypocrite. But my inquiry is, clearly Islam has to have done worse, or uneducated people from everywhere would not be condemning all of them, including their innocent children to a nuclear fiery death. pfft, what am I talking about, their is no such thing as an innocent Muslim. Even the infant babies are clearly guilty by default, and no one should feel even the slightest remorse while we dispatch them as well.

So which specific genocides are we to hold them to account? I think I have read about an Armenian genocide right?? So while not in the untold millions to hundreds of millions, I know they at lest got one.

Im trying to keep score here is all. I need to know so I can accurately explain to my children why they should maintain default hate/fear mode when encountering anyone professing to be Muslim. I don't want them to be caught off guard and need to make sure they are ready to hate/fear based on facts.

Kind of like an evolution from this against Islam.

I do think the spiritual world is teaching on the level of where the majority of humanity is.

But if the spiritual world is evolving humanity thru heightened spiritual revelation then why do you still follow Muhammad and not follow Nanak (and become Sikh) instead that is a later created religion with less logical problems and duality than the Quran.

Why is Buddhism so much more logical and awareness based than Islam when it is olden than Islam? Should not Islam be brighter and wiser than Buddhism since it should be later on the evolution chain if humanity always evolve upwards?

Ok, but how about trying to answer the question in the OP?


It was a silly question posed by the OP:



Would you agree ATS that even though Islam may soon outnumber Christians on the total population scale, it will be relegated to poor countries and have a difficult time spreading due to the overall wealth gap?


1. As if a nation's economy has any bearing on religious ideologies. Btw, there are many wealthy "Muslim countries" already...

2. How does the OP claim that *Islam will outnumber Christians" and then ask *if it will have difficult time spreading* in the same breath? I will have to rhetorically ask the OP if s/he is aware that there is a high Muslim population in China and Philippines and other places.

However, I *disagree* with 3NL1GHT3N3D1 that all religions deserve the right to exist equally. S/he is much more tolerant than I am towards religion. I believe ALL religious people need a enlightening slap in order to wake up to its mystical common root—which will probably never happen. Therefore, ALL religions need to become extinct from the face of the Earth.

The prophet Mohammed had multiple wives because they were widows or in need of protection. At that time things were different.
And really sand people, you obviously are a racist piece of #.

Because they needed protection? yeah, from MOHAMMED! He was a goddamn warlord and took sex slaves.

I am in the process now of re reading Quran. I don't mean to be rude or aggressive to Muslims (Islamist's) but this literature appears to me as about 7th or 8th grade immature literature. I can understand why Quran took much of their doctrine from rabbinic and Christian sources as they really have no foundation except that of an illiterate man who it appears to me was very confused. I have found , simply by reading, numerous embellishments or simply mistakes in their taking other literature and trying to blend it with their own doctrine.

In that respect Islam appears to attract the uneducated as well as the fearful. By fearful I do not mean fear of their God as much as their fear of reprisal in not accepting Islam by the butchers who enforce this ideology. It appears to me as a religion of terror in not accepting what their peers teach who are simply mortal parrots of an illiterate man. It truly is a religious ideology wrapped in a garment of confusion.
Just my opinion of course ---

It goes much deeper than that. Much of Christianity lives within developed counties and the cultures in developed countries have changes to less children due to cost, lack of true need for them and new family makeups. People just do not have the children as they once had the past. We also see a general move from all religions as our education systems pushes this quite heavily.

In many Muslim countries they have a state sanctioned religion, have many laws solely based on their religion and still have large numbers of children who are educated mostly though the Mosques.

To be "good enough" would mean we would need to match some kind of Islam or die methodology that is basically what we see them as to the reasons of their religious growth.

the funniest part about this thread is how people pretend that christianity is so innocent. christians were terrorists before terrorism was cool. but now we have the bill of rights and stuff so american religions have to play nice while pretending it was their idea to play nice so they dont look bad. bottom line, if christianity can turn over a new leaf, so can islam. its what jesus would have wanted, no?

We see what extremism can do so many times in the past. TODAY there is an extremist group that is affecting the whole planet to one degree or another. How do you explain that to your kids? There is no hate/fear, so don't make the criminal the victim. No one is wide brushing anything, OK there are 1.5 billion fantastically wonderful Muslims in the world..its the other 100 million that want us dead. You see that is the problem we have here with the extremist part of Islam that may be just a small percentage of them, but still represents a rather lager number of people.

We also can not comprehend the nature of large groups of people who are willing to kill and continue to kill until they themselves are killed. We would call these people insane in our world but in the Muslim world they are martyr and praised for their actions.

I don't have any answers for you...so good luck explaining all this to your kids in a good way.. lol
