The Pew Research Center reveals, that by 2050, 10% of Europeans will be Muslims, reports CNN.
According to the survey, 2010-2050 the number of Muslims around the world will increase by 73%, whereas the number of Christians by 35%. This means, that Islam is now the second most popular religion in the world and will outrun Christianity by the end of the century.
The reason of such developments is the birth rate. The number of children born in Muslim families is more than it is in the families of other religious groups. The average ratio makes 3.1 against 2.3. In addition, Muslims are younger than other religion affiliates on average for 7 years.
