This shows once again shows how it bodes badly for Europe, in spite of all those who claim otherwise (it’s conspiracy nonsense drummed up by those who identify with the counter-jihad).
Vila said the main reason for the increase in growth of Islam, based on number of followers around the world, is due to birthrates. “Conversion to Islam happens even in the West,” Vila said, but “growth is almost entirely birthrates, not conversions.” Most of the growth of Islam is “within populations that are already Muslim.”
Study finds Islam to be the fastest growing religion
Many Americans object to allowing more Muslim refugees from Syria and other countries into the U.S. on the grounds that the decision could ultimately lead to a drastic rise in the country’s Muslim population. Research shows that these concerns may be legitimate.
Studies conducted by Pew Research Center show Muslims are the fasting growing religious group in the world and will come close to catching Christianity in number of followers by 2050.
“The number of Muslims will nearly equal the number of Christians around the world,” in 35 years, according to Pew Research Center in a study about the future of world religions. “Muslims will be more numerous in the U.S. than people who identify as Jewish on the basis of religion.”
Pew Research Center predicts that by 2050 Muslims will make up 29.7 percent of the global
population, whereas Muslims made up 23 percent of the global population in 2010.
Another study by Pew from 2011 shows that in 1990, Muslims made up 19.9 percent of the world population.
Pew Research Center points out if current growth trends continue in 2050, “Muslims are the only major religious group projected to increase faster than the world’s population as a whole.”
David Vila, professor of religion and philosophy at John Brown University, has traveled and excavated across the Middle East and studied Islam extensively.
