“By the year 2070 Will become the number of Muslims around the world is greater than the number of Christians is due to demographic changes in the world”
This is what findings of a German newspaper report “Die Welt” According to US study.
The study authors felt that behind the high birth rates among Muslims political calculations and Muslims strategy which seeks to impose full control and sovereignty to the world through the population.
At the moment, embracing about a third of the world's population and is the Christian religion most prevalent, followed by Islam about a half billion Muslims, and about Hinduism 900 one million population.
According to the study, this arrangement will not last long was the Skaon researchers from the Institute “Pew” It is known in Washington for six years compiling and analyzing studies and statistics population 234 countries and territories around the world for and issued a study of 245 Page deals with the five largest religions in the world growth outlook which is Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism.
The study pointed out that there are biological and social reasons and to prevent political Christianity of rapid growth as much as they grow “Islamic Nation “.
Research and director of the Institute of Interfaith Studies “Pew” Famous in Washington “Now Cooperman” The reason for the growth of Islam to the high birth rates in Muslim societies where the average birth to a Muslim woman 3.1 Children per woman, while the average in Germany, for example, 1.3 Only children per woman.
But the reasons for the growth of Islam is not limited to high birth rates only, but there are other reasons, such as embracing many Islamic Religion.
Researchers at the Institute “Pew” يتوقعون المزيد من تحول المسيحيين إلي الإسلام وتزايد اتجاه المسيحيين للإلحاد .
Researchers are also expected to lose about Christianity 106 Million adherents by the year 2050 While expecting entry 40 Million people in Christianity through turns them from their original religion, which means that there is a negative difference 66 Million losing them even in Christianity 2050.
With regard to the spread of the phenomenon of atheism, the researchers expect to grow the number of atheists in low birth rates in the industrialized countries of Europe, America and Japan, while not expect the spread of atheism in the Islamic countries in which the death penalty of up to atheism.
And he saw researcher ” Now Cooperman ” Director of Research and Studies Center at the Institute of religions “Pew” American research that Islam will win the demographic battle for various reasons the most important of the Muslim population is concentrated in most countries that grow demographically faster than others in addition to being a young societies such as Africa and Southeast Asia, where the average age in the Arab and Islamic countries less rest of the world and therefore the Islamic communities more young people from Christian communities.
For example, in an Islamic state like Iran is 70% Of the population of young people less than 25 -Year-old and the average age of the country's total 27 عاماً بينما يبلغ متوسط الأعمار في ألمانيا 43.7 عاماً وفي اليابان يصل إلى 46.5 Years.
On the other hand, it is expected to shift to the majority religion of Islam, even in predominantly Christian countries, where it is expected that the number of Muslims arrive in India with a Hindu majority, for example, 310 Million people by the year 2050.
The study is expected to become the number of Muslims in India is greater than Muslim neighbor Pakistan, which will number them to Muslims 273 Million people by the year 2050
If an event India will become the largest country in the world in terms of the number of the Muslim population, surpassing Indonesia, which will reach the number of Muslim population into the 256 Only million people by the year 2050.
If population growth continued strength of the Muslims in this way, it is expected that the number of the Muslim population is growing by 73% While the number of Christian population will not grow by only 35% Just.
The study also predicted that declining number of predominantly Christian countries 159 to me 151 While the state will reach the number of Muslims in the United States of America 8 Million Muslims and therefore waste the Jews from the throne of the second largest religion after Christianity in America.
With the exception of Turkey and Russia, the UK Stterpa on the throne of Europe's largest countries in terms of the number of Muslim population is expected to reach the number of Muslims in Britain by 2050 to 7.76 Million Muslims, then about France 7.54 Million Muslims, then followed by Germany at about 7 Million Muslims.
As for Africa, where he lives 40 % Of the world's Muslims, it will see significant growth in the number of Muslim population and, for example, a country like Nigeria's predominantly Christian state will not become, but will turn into a country with a Muslim majority and will reach a population of 230 one million population .
Despite the transformation of Nigeria to the predominantly Muslim country, but it will remain one of the largest countries in terms of the population of Christians around the world will come in third place after the United States and Brazil.
Such as Nigeria and in Africa is expected to turn a country like Macedonia to the Muslim-majority country.
On the other hand, the study predicted that the growing number of Hindus in the same global population growth rate of nearly 34% While it is expected that the number of Buddhists remain as they are without growth.
The researchers explained that their study relied on a private demographic data rates of birth and mortality rates and statistics migration and data religious identities around the world, and that their findings of expectations is subject to changes and effects that occur around the world from wars and natural disasters and epidemics of modern inventions and political crises and economic collapses, social and other factors and influences those that may cause some changes in expectations.
So the researchers also confirmed that all of these factors may hinder the control of the Islamic religion to the world but it will not stop the progress of Islam and the growth of the number of its adherents.
