Christianity 2.1 billion
Islam 1.5 billion
Hinduism 900 million
Buddhism 376 million
Sikhism 23 million
Judaism 14 million
Bahaism 7 million
Confucianism 6.3 million
Jainism 4.2 million
Shintoism 4 million

Atheism makes up 2.32% of the world's population, while Christianity makes up 33.32%.

93.5% of the world's population follows one religion or another and believes in a higher power.

2.32% (atheists) do not.

Can so few be right and so many be wrong?
What are the odds of that?
Yeah, that's a good measure. Does that make illiteracy the world's educational standard? How did Islam get to be second in half the time - is it even better?

By the way, your list leaves out the growing (unlike christianity) #3 religious belief, NONE OF THE ABOVE.
