List of largest peaceful gatherings in the world

How can the west compete with these kind of numbers? The best the West could do was 5 million for the Pope in Manilla and 4.2 million for a Rod Stewart concert in Rio.

To be able to motivate these numbers of people to physically goto one place at one time is amazing. Should the west be concerned about this type of motivation?

Yes, we should be concerned about that the fact that their god is so much more powerful than our god that their god has no problem gathering that many "faithful" to one spot for one day.
However, our god, Apple, could draw lines of millions (collectively) around their "holy temples", aka Mac Stores in one day. Easily.

Not in these divided western countries unfortunately. Unless they're giving away some sort of technological distraction or money its highly unlikely to happen.

I wonder what they all did for toilets??

The toilet issue is funny, but even electronically the super bowl only had 2.5 million people tune in. To be able to bring so many people to one physical location for one reason boggles my mind.

Its like a tidal wave, and it will over run the rest of the world.
