Hey everyone, let's wave our conversion/deconversion e-peens everywhere!

The American Religious Identification Survey gave nonreligious groups the largest gain in terms of absolute numbers: 14.3 million (8.4% of the population) to 29.4 million (14.1% of the population) for the period 19902001 in the U.S.[59][91] A 2012 study by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life reports, "The number of Americans who do not identify with any religion continues to grow at a rapid pace. One-fifth of the U.S. public and a third of adults under 30 are religiously unaffiliated today, the highest percentages ever in Pew Research Center polling."[89] A similar pattern has been found in other countries such as Australia, Canada, and Mexico. According to statistics in Canada, the number of "Nones" increased by about 60% between 1985 and 2004.[96] In Australia, census data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics give "no religion" the largest gains in absolute numbers over the 15 years from 1991 to 2006, from 2,948,888 (18.2% of the population that answered the question) to 3,706,555 (21.0% of the population that answered the question).[97] According to INEGI, in Mexico, the number of atheists grows annually by 5.2%, while the number of Catholics grows by 1.7%.[98][99] In New Zealand, 39% of the population are irreligious making it largest percentage of total population in Oceania region.[100]

I never made any comment on the above mentioned countries.

You just failed at this topic. Thank you.

These are really crummy sources if you're trying to prove that the growth of Christians is "exploding"


Says who? What better place to look for christian growth statistics then organizations that exclusively study christian growth statistics? Your post makes no sense.

What other sources in Iran would know about christian growth besides the Pro Islam biased govt which hides the data?

Nobody can stop the almighty power of Jesus.

Except the Romans.


Too bad Rome converted to Christ thanks to Constantine the Great. lol.

Try again, bsballa. Another fail for the record books.


He has a talent for that. lol.


When you're forced to side with Polish while everyone else pwns him, I consider that a victory.

Roman Catholics are Christian.


Were all Romans Christian in 33AD, especially the ones who killed Jesus? No? Then why bring it up?

Worst example ever O.o

Roman oppression actually contributed to our growth. Trying to stomp out ideas by force doesnt work.

No they are not. THey have no reason to lie. The Iranian govt does.

Answer the question or your posts are discredited and i will assume you are trolling: What other source is better for finding out the growth of christians?

Question 2: How were the sites i listed (including wikipedia) not reliable sources?
