Title: Fastest growing religion since Sept. 11th? Still Islam!!!!
Post by: infinite59 on November 04, 2002, 05:39:53 PM
The media can attempt to demonize and demoralize Islam till it's last breathe, till the last day, till the end of this life, and we still continue to grow!!!  In America, the rate of people converting to Islam has only increased since Sept 11th.  The same is true for Islam internationally.  You can't suppress the truth.  The truth stands alone.  It is dependant on nothing!!  Islam is everywhere now.  And we will continue to be the fastest growing religion, from now till the last day!!!!!

Those are some pretty strong statements.  When saying "The truth stands alone" Are you implying Islam is the one true religion?  It comes off that way.  If you are not trying to make such a statement perhaps you should reconsider your wording.  If you do hold to that statement perhaps you have found your answer for lack of supporters from outside the muslim faith.  

Also, the statement that Islam will always continue to be the fastest growing religion is a bit extreme.  I'm guess you are just excited and overstated yourself, but in the event thats not the case...  For Islam to be the fastest growing religion forever is a mathematical impossibility.  Rate of growth cannot be sustained when you have a fixed population (granted the population grows but lets be a little realistic).  You already stated that Islam had "above a 100% increase" this past year.  If that is the case then the amount of islamic convertees doubled.  The muslim population cannot double every year because eventually we run out of people.  So it is obvious the rate of growth will at the very least slow down.  But , it eventually will not be the fastest growing.  Eventually let's assume half of the world population is islamic, while another religion has say 1000 suporters.  That other religion can have a 200% growth rate by simply increasing to 2000 people.  Islam controlling half the population would have to take over the world to double in size.  So obviously they will not always be the fastest growing.  


Another interesting point.  Judaism does not actively recruit new members.  In fact strict hebrew rabbi's are taught to reject, initially, those seeking to enter their faith and only after 3 attempts will they be allowed the "chance" to join.  

So who is islam really competing against? Christianity already covers a large portion of the population.  So for christianity to have a high growth rate it would be more difficult than for islam to have a high growth rate since islam needs to recruit less to grow faster.  Especially in America, the country is primarily christian.  It is impossible for christianity to grow faster than islam here.  We control at least 60% of the population.  For us to double in size is impossible since there is only 40% of the population left (if my estimation is correct).  

Futhermore the American Media's criticism of islam is no different than its criticism of anything else.  The roman catholic religion is at times criticized to, it just so happens that catholics aren't blowing up buildings on american soil.  Had a number of crazy christians went nutso and started shooting up schools im sure it would be in the news.  Do you expect the media to just not tell us whats happening in the country?  

I have nothing else left to say.

*Devils Advocate enters Room*

Islam is the fastest growing religion, as far as number of new members annually (Millions join, or convert a year... possibly because to "convert" you only need to repeat a phrase).... that's cool and all... however :)

The fastest growing religion, percentage wise, is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, who actively seek converts through missionary work throughout the world.  The church is growing at twice the rate of Islam, even though "converting" or joining the church is a complicated process involving a series of discussions, being baptised, etc.  If you take into account all the OTHER christian churches in the world, there is a much higher christianity 'conversion' rate than 'muslim' conversion rate...


With all that said, So what? It doesn't mean anything.

Word... I have a strong aversion to part of the song Trauma is singing.  More times then not the exact opposite of what Trauma describes is true.  Ask any Muslim who regularly attends the mosque for Jumma prayer and he will tell you that people who convert to Islam are much more zealous in their practice of the religion then people who were raised Muslim.

Moreover, Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world, period!  We are the second largest religion as is.  We are 1 billion deep.  Christianity is 6 billion deep.  But eventually we will catch up to Christianity and eclipse it.  Did you know that in America the statistics indicate that by the year 2,015 that there will be more young black men in Islam than in Christianity.  That is no minor occurence considering that until the 1900's there was virtually no signs of Islam amongst black men in this country!!!!  

Reason being, Christians devilishly forced their religion on others, and made black Muslim "chattel" from Africa convert to Christianity.  They stripped them of any memory of their name and religion through 300 years of oppression.  They used the Bible to justify this madness, teaching them (black men) that they were descendants of Noah's discraced relative Hamm.

And the thing iz that among these religions, Hinduism is the oldest and DOES NOT recruit new members, I think its impossible to convert to hinduism if ur not born into it, but i guess there might be a few exceptions SOMEWHERE, but yeah Hinduism is still at number 3 baby baby! 8)

Well, it's probably cuz I live in America, and there's a hella lot of Jews in America...There's probably more Jews than Muslims in America, and there's definently more in Cali (where I live)...The reason there aren't many Jews is because Israel, Europe, and America are basically the only Countrys u'll find Jews, where as Muslims are all over the world...But honestly, I never met any Sikhs in my life, and I met like 1 Million Jews down here...lol...Can somone find a list of the population of Religions in America?...Thanks...PeACe
