According to a report conducted by ‘The Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life’ the largest religious group is represented by Christians with 2.2 billion people (32% of the world’s population), second largest – Muslims with 1.6 billion people (23%), placing the religiously unaffiliated group in third place with 1.1 billion ( 16%) , followed by 1 billion Hindus (15%), nearly 500 million Buddhists (7%) and 14 million Jews (0.2%). The figures relate to 2010.

ImageThe religiously unaffiliated people make up the third largest group around the world after Christians and Muslims. This group estimates roughly 16 % of the world’s population and is heavily concentrated in Asia and the Pacific.

More than three-quarters of the religiously unaffiliated reside in Asia, the majority in China with more than six-in-ten (62%) of all religiously unaffiliated people, and more than one-in-six people in Europe (18%) and North America (17%).

The study reveals that Czech Republic is the first in the list of countries where the religiously unaffiliated make up the majority of the population, followed by North Korea, Estonia, Japan, Hong Kong and China.

The situation is clear. Please pray for the unreached people groups! On this link you can check one such group in West Africa.

  1. Religion is a very stupid way and very conmfortable for some lazy unthinking people how to deal with the reality, Only stupid persons look for the help of gods instead of looking for a help and a better solution here on the Earth. we can not be surprised that the world is the way it is when people rely on some unreal afterlife and easy come promisses that something they do not deserve here or what was relatively denied to them here on the Earth they will without any effort get somewhere else. Hic Rhodos hic salta. Stop thinking stupid and overcome your stupid ideas. Become atheists and the world will be much better. There is no need for any god if you want to be good and help to improve living in this world.

  2. Thank you for your oppinion Karel. I do not think that people who believe are stupid, nor do I think that people who do not believe are smart. 🙂
