I could update some of the details in the above post, but it is still sufficiently accurate to leave as it is and not post a third edition of my introdction at this site. One week from today will be Christmas Day. Adherents.com is a website that aims to collect and present information about religious demographics. The site was established in 1998. It is the largest pool of such data freely available on the internet. As of January 2010, the site contains approximately 44,000 references on over 4,300 faith groups. The site offers its information sorted geographically, focusing on the number of adherents of a given denomination in a specific region or country.

With around 2.2 billion adherents, split into 3 main branches of Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox, Christianity is the world's largest religion. The Christian share of the world's population has stood at around 33% for the last hundred years. Go to this link for more information: Christianity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hi Ron. I was born in WA, incidentally, became a Christian there when I was 18, and also used to have family living in Tasmania for years. I live in England.

Thanks for your response, Maisy. I joined the Baha'i Faith in 1959. Statistical estimates of the worldwide Bahá'í population are difficult to arrive at. The religion is almost entirely contained in a single, organised community, but the Bahá'í population is spread out into almost every country and ethnicity in the world, being recognized as the second-most geographically widespread religion after Christianity. For more details on the statistical aspect of this Faith, a Faith that claims to be the newest, the latest, of the Abrahamic religions, got to:Bahá'í statistics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

My cousin, who as it happens used to live in Tasmania, is a Baha'i. When I was younger I looked into several different faiths / ways of living. But I had a number of personal experiences that brought me to being a Christian. I am passionate about it, but will look up that link on Baha'i .
