Without looking to see what the other responses were, I had "Christianity" already in my mind. I see that I am not alone. I said Christianity because it's so...easy...and simple. I mean, who would follow Judiasm? Who in their right mind? Christianity have it easy. Look at them, they can eat pork, shellfish and other such "unclean" foods. They have their day of worship after hte day Jesus was resurected. They pray to the angels and saints in heaven and they have cute crosses and statues. Now, I've chosen Judiasm to follow. Why? If a Christain was serious about following Jesus, they would follow what he taught and how he lived.

http://www.adherents.com/Religions_By_Adherents.html This site seems to have reasonably credible statistics. # Christianity: 2.1 billion # Islam: 1.3 billion # Secular/Nonreligious/Agnostic/Atheist: 1.1 billion # Hinduism: 900 million It would appear that the Secular group, by far has the single significant majority, the only significant distinction being the theists and atheists. Hinduism is probably second. I am not sure if the hindus of Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam and Burma have been taken into account. Christianity and Islam are both sufficiently fragmented to make them number 3 and 4 respectively.
