Wow, roboblogger picked a March 13, 1960 Newspaper (Lakeland Ledger) and put it in Islam "News"? http://news.google.com/newspapers...
Billy Graham has been proven wrong if that was his view:
Recent data shows that Islam is the fastest slowing religion in Africa: http://www.topix.com/forum/religion/islam/TD5...
Based on the numbers provided in Post #1, I did a further analysis on muslim vs christian population growth - that clearly showing Christianity is growing strength while Islam is slowing down in Africa.
(Note: population numbers are in "millions")
Muslims: 34 (77% of combined christians+muslims)
Christians: 10 (23% of combined christians+muslims)
Muslims: 300 (55% of combined christians+muslims)
+266 (882% from 1900)
Christians: 250 (45% of combined christians+muslims)
+240 (2500% from 1900)
Muslims: 423.5 (46% of combined christians+muslims)
+123.5 (1246% from 1900, 141% from 2000)
Christians: 495.8 (54% of combined christians+muslims)
+245.8 (4958% from 1900, 198% from 2000)
From above stats, muslim growth has clearly slown down, while christians 198% growth in the last 10 years is actually more impressive than its compounded 2500% growth from 1900 to 2000 - showing no sign of slowing down! No wonder those muslim scholars from Muslim Debate initiative are worried.
Now if we look at the absolute number of increase in muslims and christians for the last 10 years, muslims gained 123.5 millions while christians gained 245.8 millions. Thats a difference of 122.3 millions in 10 years - making it over 12 million per year "net gain" for christians in average.
And that number has finally convinced me about the claims in these posts, that "6 million muslims leaving islam every year" in Africa (I once thought it was an exaggerated figure, but now it actually looks pretty conservative!).
This thread shows that even biologically, muslims baby production has slowed down - meaning Islam's greatest tool for spreading is broken: http://www.topix.com/forum/religion/islam/T48...
