Because your religion specifically says to spread itself?

because of what I term the 85th percentile; 85% of the human population is fucking STUPID. if you operate under that assumption, things generally work out smoothly.
I would also like to know what the other 3.3 billion are up to.
11/20/2008 4:43:30 AM
What happened to the other 3 billion people on earth?
ETA: Damn, C_V was there before me.

Again with the question mark usage! It is starting to get really annoying!!! Oh, and a majority vote doesn't make it right, just more popular. You know Christianity was once the minority.
11/20/2008 4:46:24 AM
Most of the Christians are sane, too... just not you.
(I can't rewrite the name... who the F gives themselves a name like that? Elmo? Barney?)

a mind far far away
You're grammar makes no sense. But just because something is popular doesn't mean it's right. The best case is 500 years ago most people thought the world was flat. While science has since proven this idea wrong (and it's actually been known the world was a sphere since about 300 bc), most fundies still refuse to believe it. This is proof that those 2.1 billion people are at the least deluded, and at the worst brainwashed ignorant idiots.

Argumentum ad populum - thousands of years ago rhetoricians already had a formal name for the flaw in your logic. Why don't schools teach logic anymore?

2.1 billion are Christians, about 4.4 billion are not. Your stats are a bit off there.
And yes delusion is a very common human experience, especially when it comes to religion.
11/20/2008 4:56:18 AM
Well first of all there are 6 billion people, so you're discounting a full 3.8 billion people.
Second of all that is a mob appeal fallacy. As such you automatically lose at arguments. Go look up the informal fallacies before you come on my internet.
11/20/2008 4:58:51 AM
Because an invisible man in the sky makes a whole lot of sense. Yep.
11/20/2008 5:04:22 AM
Delusion and insanity are not the same thing. Being insane requires a certain amount of delusion but not vice versa. Delusion is just a false belief or opinion.
11/20/2008 5:14:03 AM
where are these 1.1 billion sane people and what of the other billions of people you left out? Insanity isn't confined to Christianity, it's just a major supplier.

Allegory for Jesus
Compartmentalization. And humans are stupid. That is all.
11/20/2008 5:22:31 AM
Because the religious meme spreads like a virus, particularly in a religion like Christianity which, as anonymous already pointed out, instructs its followers to get more followers.
You should read Richard Dawkins for more on this fascinating subject - and in the meantime(sarcasm) I do congratulate you on your enquiring mind and for asking the question. (/sarcasm)
11/20/2008 5:34:19 AM
Because people are, in general, pretty stupid and prone to believing things based on how good it makes them feel, rather than on how true they may be.
11/20/2008 5:40:43 AM
Why would 2.1 billion christian people be? deluded and only 1.1 billion people be perfectly sane, it makes no sense
Exactly my beef; it makes no sense.
11/20/2008 5:46:51 AM
Presumably the 1.1 billion referenced refers to atheists and agnostics, not to non-Christians generally.
But I'd be surprised if the global number were that high, sadly.
11/20/2008 6:47:05 AM
Actual sometimes I wonder if I'm the only person on Earth who's brain works.
11/20/2008 6:48:05 AM
apparently you aren't just "retarded" you also can't count
11/20/2008 7:14:38 AM
And the rest of the earth is what, chopped liver?
11/20/2008 7:34:48 AM
You know how there are those adds that say" Over 1 million Australian women can't be wrong". Well guess what, they can. In fact, billions of people can be wrong. I'd go as far to say that the entire Earths population is wrong about one thing in particular (don't know what it is though).
11/20/2008 7:46:28 AM
Simple. It has a great ad campaign.
11/20/2008 7:53:49 AM
Here, let me fix that for you.
If you people think people having the flu are so retarded, let me ask you, Why would 6 billion people have the fly each year? and only [b]a few] people be perfectly healthy, it makes no sense.
11/20/2008 7:59:20 AM
You're absolutely right.
