The Future of World Religion (in 2050)


This is what you need to know about the future
of world religions, according to projections by the Pew Research Center, whose results
are driven primarily by current differences in fertility rates and the size of youth populations
around the world. The major takeaway, is that by 2050, the number
of Muslims around the world will nearly equal the number of Christians, as Islam will grow
faster than any other major world religion, thanks to a comparatively youthful population
with high fertility rates, which is projected to cause Islam’s followers to grow by 73%. The number of Christians also is projected
to rise, but more slowly, at about the same rate (35%) as the global population overall. The countries on Earth with the fastest population
growth rates are mostly countries with heavily Muslim populations. If these countries are
able to develop faster than expected though, their birth rates will fall, and the growth
of Islam will be slower than projected here. As you can see, the current fertility rates
of Muslims are significantly higher than any other religion. Muslims also have the youngest population,
with 34% of their followers under the age of 15 and only 7% older than 60. Religious switching will account for over
66 million Christians changing faiths, with 93% becoming unaffiliated. Here in the United States, while declining
in overall share, Christians are projected to still be the dominant religious group,
although the unaffiliated, which includes agnostics and atheists, will see a large jump. Even though the number of religiously unaffiliated
people will increase by nearly 10% over the next three and a half decades, its share of
the global population will actually slip by more than 3%. Today, only 60% of the world
uses the Internet, but as that number climbs, the number of unaffiliated/agnostic/and atheists
should likely rise with it, faster than projected in this study. These are the countries projected to no longer
have a Christian majority in 2050, either because the number of Christians will drop
below 50% of the population, or because another group, like the unaffiliated or Muslims, will
take Christianity’s place as the majority religion. Under these projections, worldwide, the proportion
of Muslims will surpass Christians around the year 2070. And lastly, a word of caution about this report
from the Pew Center itself: “the projections are what will occur if the current data are
accurate and current trends continue. But many events – scientific discoveries, armed
conflicts, social movements, political upheavals, natural disasters and changing economic conditions,
just to name a few – can shift demographic trends in unforeseen ways.” Thanks for watching, if you found this video

together in their fantastic report, which is linked in full below. This episode of The

    There is enough evidence to prove that religion will die out and be no more in the future. Besides no believer or atheist can prove gods existence, I’m atheist, but I will respect all religions, may god be with YOU 🙏

    I am a Hindu and I don't respect every religion because
    Jesus is not Christian
    Buddha is not Buddhist
    Krishna is not Hindu
    They all are human and trying to teach us humanity Which are eventually named by people as Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism etc
    Btw "basudihava kutumbakam," means whole world is my family.

    I am the women born with a veil and 10 stars upon my head written in the Old Testament Revelation Chapters and the archangel Gabriel asked the devil for aide into stealing 7 stars from my head about his Muhammad and the Quran of whom take side counsel from fallen angels of false gods between serving Our Heavenly Father and his commandments Love thy God with all thy strength and do not worship false gods or idols.Christ taught us of Our Heavenly Father and his Holy Spirit in full filling that law

    Our Heavenly Father said he will Judge and he said it worldwide so every tongue could understand him and he called it Judgement Day and Christ said even the ones who Pierce him will know his Vengeance of the Roman's who would use the crucifix cross on anyone who oppose Roman laws of whom gave Christ a Thorn Crown

    The archangel Gabriel wanted to be worship as god and reflects on the Muslims
    Subliminal Santa aka Satan himself wanted to be worship as a God on Christ birthday reflecting on Christians

    Our Heavenly Father said love thy God with all thy strength and do not worship false gods or idols. False gods are fallen angels who wanted to be worship as gods.

    Remember the Sabbath day and keep it Holy of Our Heavenly Father commandments and Christ prescribed Saturday to be the Sabbath day in full filling that law, the Roman's change it to Sunday and gave out their Roman crucifix cross and wrote hundreds of Bibles with false gods between scripture mainly psalms and gave out to the Churches

    Unaffiliated number over the time is the most unpredictable data. When religious adult didn't changed the religion what belong when he was a kid. The majority of unaffilated when was younger belonged a religion. I was baptized to catholic church (and probably on the official data I was counted as Christian because I was in the "baptized list") but I define me an unaffilated (I don't know if I consider my self an Atheist or Agnostic)…

    In islam they say that God sent 4 books : Injil , Tewrat , Zebur and Quran . And all of them were changed during time except Quran . That is why God sent Quran last because other books were changed and lost the reality .

    Muslims 💪
    And no peace if the Christians support Israel, and fight us in our country Syria, Iraq and Yemen they interfere in everything and destroy it, and do not forget the English occupation of the Ottoman Empire and not forget the Armenian massacres against the Turks who have been mutilated to Turkish massacres against the Turks, and do not forget the massacres Serbian against Bosnia and Herzegovina and racism Donald Trump is against the Muslims, and don't forget the massacres against the Morski (Muslims) in Andalusia where they killed millions of innocent children and women.
    And you say peace between religions?

    Holy Quran 6:108
    وَلَا تَسُبُّوا۟ ٱلَّذِينَ يَدْعُونَ مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ فَيَسُبُّوا۟ ٱللَّهَ عَدْوًۢا بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ ۗ كَذَٰلِكَ زَيَّنَّا لِكُلِّ أُمَّةٍ عَمَلَهُمْ ثُمَّ إِلَىٰ رَبِّهِم مَّرْجِعُهُمْ فَيُنَبِّئُهُم بِمَا كَانُوا۟ يَعْمَلُونَ

    And do not insult those they invoke other than Allah, lest they insult Allah in enmity without knowledge. Thus We have made pleasing to every community their deeds. Then to their Lord is their return, and He will inform them about what they used to do.

    Every Religion respects other beliefs or unbelievers besides Islam. I hope that Islam will never rule the world.

    Koran 2:191 "Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them."

    Koran 3:28 "Muslims must not take the infields as friends."

    Koran 3:85 "Any Religion other than Islam is not acceptable."

    Koran 5:33 "Maim and crucify the infields if they criticize Islam."

    Koran 8:12 "Terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qu'ran."

    Koran 8:60 "Muslims must muster all weapons to terrorize the infields."

    Koran 8:65 "The unbelievers are stupid; urge the muslims to fight them."

    Koran 9:5 "When opportunity arises kill the infields wherever you catch them."

    Koran 9:30 "The Jews and Christians are perverts; fight them."

    Koran 9:123 "Make war on the infields living in your neighborhood."

    Koran 22:19 "Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies."

    Koran 47:4 "Do not hanker for peace with the infields; behead them when you catch them."

    They are allowed to marry 4 women. But in Christianity marrying another women is a SIN. Moreover, they are uneducated they don't have any sense of Population Growth. It's a fact you gotta accept it.

    It’s good to know atheism is on the rise. The world would be a much better place without it

    But religion is so deeply entrenched in our culture it will probably be a long time before mankind is finally free of it.

    The only reason why Islam is growing fast is coz they are allowed to marry 4 wives and have 9 children, just like how Mohammad did. if denied they receive death. so ye.
