Report: Islam will surpass Christianity as World’s dominant religion by end of century

By Veronica Neffinger

According to a recent report, the religion of Islam is growing rapidly and there will be more people who identify as Muslim than as Christians by the year 2070.

These statistics were revealed by the Pew Research Center which conducted a study titled “Muslims and Islam: Key Finding in the US and around the World.”

In 2010, there were about 2.17 billion Christians in the world and 1.6 billion Muslims, but the study found that, by 2070, there will be 2.92 billion Muslims and 2.76 billion Christians–and the number of Muslims will only continue to grow, making Islam likely to be the dominant world religion by the end of the century.

In the U.S., Muslims are expected to make up 2.1 percent of the population by 2050, according to the findings of the study, as reported by Christian Today. Currently, they make up about one percent.
