<quoted text>This is where your figures are woefully wrong, in britain,France and Germany, the number of atheists is a lot higher. When we fill out our census forms, it says tick which box you are, I am a catholic, like all my family, and so tick the catholic box, but none of us are cristian at all, we are all atheist, none of us go to church or pray, and it is like that for most western Europeans, if 17% of British are classed as atheist, the real number is more like 75%, and even those remaining 25%, that I never see anywhere by the way, are the small remains left of a dead construct in Europe, and are themselves mostly not true believers either.
Two world wars in less than thirty years, on our land, soil soaked in the blood of millions of young men and boys, two generations wiped out forever, entire cities destroyed and towns and villages that lost every single male living there in the war, all that death and destruction destroyed religeon in Europe, it killed Christianity stone dead, and its never recovered, plus most of our Christian extremists were deported to usa in the 1600s LOL, we are very sorry for dumping them on you and making them your problem
The numbers are spot on!
The numbers are for the WHOLE world.
While the percentage may be higher in places like your church, the percentage for the WHOLE world is 2.3%. That tends to keep the erroneous / slanted number out of it.

Lol
Having trouble with the facts?

I don't care how bloody your soil is. If you can't keep the enemy out of your land then shit happens. We over here do a pretty good job of keeping our soil clean. We spill the blood else where!

When was 97% of the world atheist?

As for more recent numbers, these are from this week:

"
iOver the last five years, the number of Americans no longer affiliated with any religion ncreased by 25 percent. The study showed that 33 million Americans are now considered "unaffiliated" with any religious faction and 13 million people, about 19.7 percent, are identified as "atheist" or "agnostic.""

About 1 in 5 Americans now declare as "Atheist" or "Agnostic".

"When was 97% of the world atheist?"

I'll repeat it again because I love it!

Please try and remember it this time.

Atheist claim that every human is born atheist. That would mean atheist start out with 100% of the world population.
The current percentage of the world population that is atheist today is 2.3%
That means 97.7% of atheist have left you faith!

"Over the last five years, the number of Americans no longer affiliated with any religion "

No longer affiliated with a religion is not the definition of atheist! LOL

Learn what the hell the name of your faith means. LOL

A survey published in the 2005 Encyclopedia Britannica stated that 2.3% of the world's population consists of individuals who profess "atheism, skepticism, disbelief, or irreligion, including the militantly antireligious." In regards to the 2.3% figure just mentioned, the 2005 survey cited by Encyclopedia Britannica survey did not include Buddhist in regards to the 2.3% figure and Buddhism can be theistic or atheistic."

Wikipedia:

"Another survey attributed to Britannica shows the population of atheists at around 2.4% of the world's population.[citation needed] It is difficult to determine whether atheism is growing or not"

Wikipedia :

"2005 poll by AP/Ipsos surveyed ten countries. Of the developed nations, people in the United States were most sure of the existence of God or a higher power (2% atheist, 4% agnostic)"

Wikipedia :

"According to one estimate, atheists make up about 2.3% of the world's population"

Doesn't look like 20% to anyone that can read! LOL idiot!

You got 2% confused with 20%

Wrong.

Mathematics only quantifies those laws for us.

Do you think that we made the laws, or do you think we discover them?
Are you totally nuts?
None of those laws could have come into being with out math, what a fool.

With out math there would be no science.

If evolution is a religion we should apply for tax-exempt status and then we could raise funds to defeat Christianity (and all other religions).
Just one problem though:
Then we won't be able to teach Evolution in the schools.
The Discovery Institute will recognize this,
and we will have to fight another case in Dover.

"determining how many atheists exist in the world today is difficult.[23] According to one estimate, atheists make up about 2.3% of the world's population, while a further 11.9% are nonreligious."

2.3% of the world population is Atheist.

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atheism#sectio...

11.9% are agnostic (not atheist)

The Atheist number is 2.3% as defined by Wikipedia, Encyclopedia Britannica.

A Pew Forum survey found that the atheist population in the United States was 1.6% of the American population.

First, that is not whining. I have a legitimate complain. Second, it is not good enough. It is only good enough that I shall continue to call attention to the fact that you are a lying coward. All you have to do to show that I am wrong is to properly answer my question. I am not asking you to answer the sort of question that anyone on my side is afraid to answer.

So either answer the sort of question that anyone of us would be eager to answer, what do you believe in and why, or accept the label that I have so aptly given you.

Mathematics is not abstract, it is practical. The world's economy, populations, metric systems, scales, constructions, surveying and building plans, involves the use of Mathematics. This is not abstract but visible.
