It is true that Christianity is dropping and Islam is rising, while most others are more or less stable. However this is based on total world population percentages. In reality Christianity is growing (not declining), in actual numbers of Christians, world wide @ 1.4%, however the world population is increasing at a rate of 1.4% which means the Christianity is growing at a pace equal to the world's growing population The greatest rates of population growth are in the Middle east and in Asia, where Islam is the more or less dominant religion, Hence the steady climb of Islam per capita of people. However the growth of Islam surprisingly, is only @ 1.5%, which is slighty ahead of the the overall growth of world population in general.
edit: Also note that the non religious category is declining at a rate of .5% per year, which would possibly indicate that people are choosing a religion or faith instead of remaining agnostic or atheist.
I think I was looking at the wrong statistics. I was looking at church attendance, not profession of faith.

Salt definitely makes food more palatable sometimes. But it's not good to have too much . . .
You're not talking about me are you? Do I sting?
