No. There are about 2 billion Christians in the world today. That's counting Catholics, Mormons, JWs, Scientologists and the Westboro Baptist Church.

Total world population is a bit over 7 billion.

That's nowhere near a majority.

Even the majority of those are no more Christian than I am.
You've seen the lies, hypocrisy, dogmatic balderdash, machinations and willful ignorance of "Biblical proportions" that they post.
Matt 5:19? Anyone?

Mind your 9th commandment, Bonzo.
The fact that Christians are a minority is proof that Jesus was not God. When the Messiah comes, "the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea". And after the resurrection, "...in that day shall there be one Lord, and his name one". When the living God comes to earth, the world will know it. "...and the idols he shall utterly abolish". All the other gods in the world are idols and the world will convert to the true religion of the living God.

Oh, absolutely. I'm just being charitable.

After all, the Qur'an enjoins us to be kind to the Afflicted of Allah.

just as your bible proves that your cult's god is a myth....

funny how you can point out the falseness of other cults and be blind to your own cults obvious falsehoods...

the nature of cult mentality, i guess...

Christians, Muslims, and Jews do not all worship the same God but they think they do. The god of Jesus and Christianity is Satan, and Muslims are totally confused. They think they serve the living God but also observe the supposed validity of the Christian god and NT. Muslims hate the Jews who worship the one true God, the living God. This God is not Jewish, they have added to the scriptures, the word of God, and have missed the mark.

<quoted text>You can believe whatever you want. You can believe that blue is made up of yellow and lime polka dots. You would of course be demonstrably wrong.

And you are demonstrably wrong in this belief too.

When someone says that they believe something a person with a skeptical mind asks them why they believe what they believe. Until you show some evidence a simple "I don't believe you" upsets your case. That is why the beliefs of scientists are based upon evidence. We have evidence of when man lived, we have evidence of where man lived. The species overlap at their times of appearances and disappearances generally. There are a few overlapping species. But most follow one line. This is shown by dating the various fossils by various means.

So what evidence do you have?

I am aware of the neanderthal dna
Its a fascinating subject do elaborate on your cro-magnon man theory

<quoted text>Sorry, but you skipped a step.
Before you can claim that "God does thus" or "God does so", you must first demonstrate the existence of God.
My point is that how could John, a fisherman, exiled on an island 20 centuries ago come up with the concept of the centralised debit card system that can cover everyone on earth based on numbers?

The eyes, language convention and brain all functioning perfectly through millions of optic nerves to see this text, rods and cones to discern colour and depth perception are pretty good proof of God and the miracle of life. You folks look at life and think what an amazing number of accidents and mindless chances made all this. We look at life and say "what an amazing God we serve and I am so thankful I can live here through His goodness!" To search out His creation is a gift. It has been polluted after sin. We live in a mix of past judgement and original creation.

human eyes are actually rather pathetic by comparison in the real world.

why did your proven mythical god give his favorite species foruth rate eyes?

when you look at yoru cult with an objective eye and logic, it falls apart, as do all your arguments...

I'm not sure you can count the majority of the people subscribing to Christianity as Christian.
