A new report from the Pew Research Center says that, by 2050, the number of Muslims worldwide will be roughly equivalent to the number of Christians. That’s what most headlines about the report are saying.
But the report also has a lot to say about those of us who are “unaffiliated,” that is, atheists, Agnostics, and those who believe in a Higher Power but who want no part of organized religion.
The biggest highlights?
1) The number of Unaffiliated people worldwide is projected to rise from 1.13 billion to 1.23 billion between 2010 and 2050. However, the percentage of religiously-unaffiliated people in those years will drop from 16.4% to 13.2%.
