• Not unless the Chinese convert to Islam.

      Indeed...Good answer...Thanks, Stuck in the 80s.

      "Islam has been practiced in Chinese society for 1,400 years. Currently, Muslims are a minority group in China, representing between 0.45% to 1.8% of the total population according to the latest estimates."
  • Islam seems to want to destroy everything except Islam. If I'm wrong, someone needs to explain it to me.
    • Azlotto
      Wow...hostile much...I don't understand why racism is confused with religion. Lol.
    • Bootsiebaby
      @Zack: Azlotto is not a cowardly racist pig, I remember him from the old Answerbag and he is a nice guy. He is also spot on about racism being confused with religion. Islam is not a race, it is a religion, therefore it is not racist to speak out against it. It may be a form of bigotry, but it does not fit the dictionary definition of racism. That is all there is to it.
    • Zack - Mr. GenXer
      In that case Azlotto and Bootsiebaby, I do apologize.
    • Azlotto
      To avoid confusion, this is Zack's original answer: "That is among the rants of a cowardly racist pig. I'm not saying that you are but still."
  • I hope not.
    • Azlotto
      Same here. Thanks.
  • Why do we have to look at things like that? I believe the fastest growing beliefs are agnostic and atheist to be honest. Many people just don't practice anything
    • Azlotto
      I see that a lot, but I believe there's a superior being...Thanks, Black Mystique.

      The 2015 Pew Religious Landscape survey reported that as of 2014, 22.8% of the American population is religiously unaffiliated, atheists made up 3.1% and agnostics made up 4% of the US population. But this is just the US.

      I also found this: "These projections, which take into account demographic factors such as fertility, age composition and life expectancy, forecast that people with no religion will make up about 13% of the world’s population in 2060, down from roughly 16% as of 2015." But it said that's not because there will be less of them just that the other religions will grow faster so as to make the percentage less in comparison.
    • Black Mystique
      I think there is a disconnect. Identifying yourself with a religion or a religion that you were raised.... and practicing are two different things.
  • Islam is the only religion in the world projected to grow. All others, including atheism, are projected to slowly shrink, in terms of % of world population, over the foreseeable future. But, even at current growth rates, it'll be maybe 80-100 years before Islam catches up to Christianity.
  • Nope. They don't think like Christians. Muslims don't want to rule the world, just want their own corner of it to be safe.
  • No. But they are sure gonna try.
