The expenditure of the [Roman Catholic] Church is estimated as $170 billion in 2010. Of this, 57% was spent on health-care networks, 28% on colleges and universities, 6% on dioceses, parishes and schools, and 2.7% on charitable activities.

Now that's just the RCC, which is roughly half of Christianity.....
Wanna combine ALL of Christianity?
Wanna name one single atheist group that donates $73 BILLION dollars?
No?
Imagine that.

Racist bigot right wingers like you tend to gravitate towards the likes of Bush.
So you voted against him?
The overwhelming majority of Bush's backers were Christian. I notice you ran away from Christians standing in the way of medical advancements and all the lives lost to that. You also are still unable to name another group of people called by the racist term you used to describe Latinos.
Since you keep cowering from that I accept your surrender as I so often have to do for your failures.

First, the facts.
The current most charitable individuals in the United States, based on “Estimated Lifetime Giving,” are:
1) Warren Buffett (atheist, donated $40.785 billion to “health, education, humanitarian causes”)
2) Bill & Melinda Gates (atheists, donated $27.602 billion to “global health and development, education”)
The RCC (JUST the RCC) did more than that....

How do you figure that?

You think that because there are 2 billion Christians, each one with their own mind, that means there are "2 billion different Christian cults-of-one".

Everyone's taste buds are different, too. And I'm assuming not everyone on earth has eaten chocolate, so I left the number at 6 billion...

If you didn't care, you wouldn't have responded :)

My background is mathematics and statistics.

In just a few years of posting here I saw the number of christian sects rise from ~38,000 to ~41,000.

You must admit that is an extraordinary increase in a religion that is around two millennia old.

If you're at 43,000 sects now, and your religion's fracturing is accelerating, you may well break 60,000 sects long before 2030.

I notice you cowered away from my question. If Jesus existed and cared shouldn't there only be one? Instead of thousands of Christian denominations all with different teachings and requirements shouldn't he allow just one?

If there was only one, then the atheist idea that there is no free will would be true.

But since there are so many different forms of Christianity (amongst other religions and non-religions), that shoots out your idea, now doesn't it?
