Muslims Outnumber Catholics

Catholics--1.13 Billion or 17.4% of the worlds population
Muslims--1.3 Billion or 19.2% of the worlds population

For the first time since the birth of Islam, the world sees a demographic shift. I find it fascinating that in the 1400 years since Islam was birthed from the revelations of Mohamed, the tide turns in mine and your lifetime.

However, throw protestantism in the mix, and the scale is still heavy on the Christianity end, unless you are one of those who believes that Catholicism is an apostate, non-Christian cult. But for the two groups with a bitter history, this is monumental. Some wonder if the recent conversion and baptism of Magdi Allam is a public statement that tide may change once again.

What does it mean? It means somewhere, this information has spooked someone to the point of manipulating the stats to calculate the exact time and date of the end of the world.
