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.
