Quote# 2117

According to statistics, 33% of the world believe in Christianity. That's a huge figure that is! In fact, using logic we can come to the conclusion Christianity is the true religion of God because it has the most adherents. See how flawed logic is? Do we say God exists because there are more theists than atheists? Since you're such a master in logic, isn't that what you should believe?

\"That's a huge figure that is!\"
God that's just funny on many levels.

When I was in high school there was a joke that stated that four percent of americans mastubate, and 96 percent of them lie. According to history, most of the ancient world believed that the earth was the center of the universe. What's your point?

I see how flawed YOUR \"logic\" is.

Not only is that not logic, it's a textbook fallacy. To quote Papabear, \"Eat shit, 30 trillion flies can't be wrong!\"

Wow. Just wow.

Putting aside the crimes against both logic and statistics, I've got to ask how many of these Christians are the \"right\" Christians? There are a ton of Catholics as well as Eastern Orthodox and protestants whose beliefs aren't backward enough for most fundies to stomach.

All I ever hear from the fundies is that their version of Christianity is the right one and the other versions are just pagan, demon worshipping, Satanism inspired cults. So, really, maybe 5% of the world is fundie approved Christian? Which cancels out King Russ' \"logic\".

To paraphrase a recent post: If 1/3 of the world is Christian, what are the other 1/3?

Uh, that means two thirds do not believe in Christianity.

Which invalidates the point!

YOUR logic is flawed.

That's called the \"Bandwagon Fallacy\".

Hey, King Russ, if you see the glass as 1/3 full, does that make you an optimist or a pessimist?

Unfortunately Christianity likely isn't the most practiced religion in the world. That honor probably goes to Buddhism, but since the Chinese government refuses to acknowledge religion or allow any surveys to be done to find out how many of the more than a billion Chinese people are practicing Buddhists (although what studies have been done working around the government have indicated that it's pretty much all of them...), we'll never really know, will we?

As far as \"Christians\" go, yeah there are a hell of a lot of self-described \"Christians\" out there. The problem is that less than 20% of those who describe themselves as \"Christian\" actually practice the faith.

Russ is right, if you count all denominations of Christianity as "true Christians" which I doubt he does. Otherwise, the most widely practiced religion is Islam followed closely by Catholicism. [this all according to WikiAnswers]

As far as I can tell, he's right. Right?

Word salad. Logic fail. Various awards. Religion doesn't work that way. Statistics don't mean what you think they do. Really, what the fuck is this guy smoking?

Edit: The two single largest religions practiced in the world are Roman Catholicism (which most protestants don't count as part of christianity), and Sunni Islam. Buddhism is probably a close third, but we can't really get accurate statistics from communist nations in the Far East.

One third is not a majority of the people on earth. This is a huge pile of fail, this is!

Logic is not a popularity contest, stupid. Logic might say that most people apparently like to have a safety blanket in their life, well into adulthood, a pacifier against all scary stuff. The ones who are strong enough to face the reality manages without safety blankets, pacifiers and imaginary friends.

Most people in India are Hindus. As India is the second largest country in the world, population-wise, it seems like Shiva is the true god, along with all his friends.

And once upon a time, 100 percent of people believed the world was flat.

Just because a belief is popular doesn't make it true. Actually a lot of the things most people believe in are dead wrong.

that argument is not logic. That argument is the exact opposite of logic.

I believe in Christianity.
It's this kooky religion about the Blood God.
How can you not believe in Christianity? It's like not believing in atheists.
