There's two kinds of Islam, the good one and the bad one. Stop being ignorant and Look it up.
There are two types of religious apologists, the ignorant and the deluded.

You belong to both.

30 years is a long time and I don't think Islam will be around during that time due to the fact that all there nations are on the brink of civil war and not to mention that most Muslims are finding out the truth about there religion and leaving to join other religions and also becoming atheist and agnostic so in actual fact Islam is shrinking and dying out you only have to see the proof with there made up stats and facts and lies this is a classic way of a soon to be extinct organization acts " take as many before you go" attitude and they know this that is way they are trying there hardest to force there culture on us there doing it out of desperation there stone age religion is dying
The potential civil wars are between different factions of muslims, each claiming to be the most islamic. The partisanship involved keeps the zeal level up.

Most Irish attitudes are more realistic. My family comes from Eire and none of us believes in gods and we aren't religious.

The survey showed that those Irish who considered themselves religious had fallen from 69 per cent in 2011 to less than half today. Ireland was ranked seventh in the 57 countries for those describing themselves as convinced atheists.
Religion = superstition

Atheism isn't a religion, its a disbelief in god, religion & the poor people that choose to lie about / around it.

Why ISLAM spread so FAST and spreading FASTER even now

'1. The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow DECEIVING SPIRITS AND THINGS TAUGHT BY DEMONS.
