    Being the left winger that I am, I don't see Muslims when we talk about Muslims coming in. I see a group of people that can come into this country, get a job, and contribute to the faux solvency of our ponzi schemes that we are running by us taxing the hell out of them. They are all just like us. People to steal from. Some say Kum ba yah, I say Kum ba Ponzi.

    Fastest growing religious view point is Atheism. I also think a good deal of all religions membership comes from social pressure, so I think there will be a dramatic tipping point in our lifetime where Atheism becomes the majority view.
    Here is a problem. I think it is quite common for christians to become atheist or agnostic. Almost unheard of muslims to convert to different religion or abandon their faith and become atheist. So atheists will never be majority in this world unfortunately. Numbers do not lie - islam is becoming most dominant religion in the world and that domination is going to be even larger in the future. Seriously what is going to stop that? Look at most mixed marriages - if muslim man marries christian women - she becomes muslim, not vise versa. My friends good friend who was orthodox christian married muslim girl and got circumsized and became muslim as well as that was the only condition she would marry him.

    I think becoming most dominant religion in previously christian countries can be defined as taking over?
    Than you and I disagree on what "taking over" means. Yes the number of Muslims is exploding thru birthrates. No arguement on that point.

    My experience was that they are generally very anti mormon. I speak of this from first hand experience and discrimination in the south during the 90s. I think it cooled down some after the Mormon Church sent some 70s to the SBC and Bellvue Baptist Church to talk to Dr. Adrian Rogers. Bellevue at that point in time had the largest anti mormon library in the world. It was a standing rule in the Little Rock, AR mission (it covers Memphis, TN) that the missionaries were not to talk to Dr. Rodgers. Ahh the good ole days.

    true, i was just trying to prove a slight point that muslims though usually very determined to stick to the religion they have known their whole lives will still change when the feel the spirit. i dont acredit the muslim grouth to be from conversions i think its all about who is having the most babys. mormons and cotholics have been slacking i guess we need to step it up. first on this board to have 20 kids wins salvation... now 1...2...3.. go!!

    Who cares? 99% of Muslims quietly observe their religion. Christians are much more annoying, in my opinion.

    There are different kinds of view and philosophies in Islam. Despite of being raised as a Sunni Hanafi, I follow my own way of belief as I have my own mind to comprehend the universe as my own. You can say it's almost parallel with Nonduality - Advaita-Vedanta. I don't believe there is a God in X Dimension. I believe we all are a part of the one God forming the God himself.

    If some belief is taking over as OP indicated, that should be giving what the believers need from it: relief and peace. So why people have to feel fear for it? I would fear, if I had something to loose if a belief would take over, such as financial revenue. There are very few religions which people don't have to pay because of what they believe in. Would I not be in peace if I don't have to pay? I am not paying anything to anybody, and I found my inner peace, just needed to think and read a little. People are too lazy, and don't like to think for themselves. They pay someone else to think for themselves instead.

    So if there is a problem exists, problem is just about economics, not about the religion or beliefs.
