"It will be a century or more before the world completes its demographic transition. There is still too much smoke in the air for us to pick out the peaks and valleys of the emerging social order. This much seems certain: without a new [secular liberal] ideology to inspire social cohesion, fundamentalism cannot be stopped. The religious shall inherit the earth." - Professor Eric Kaufmann[1] See also: Growth of religious fundamentalism

Religious fundamentalism is a runaway train that cannot be stopped! Full steam ahead Bible believers and creationists! See: Acceleration of 21st century desecularization

Forbes article: China’s Population To Drop By Half, Immigration Helps U.S. Labor Force, September 3, 2020



  • 2017 population of religious Nigeria: 206 million
  • 2100 projected population of Nigeria: 791 million

Given the explosive growth of Protestants in China, maybe China's projected population size is in error. See: Growth of Christianity in China and Future of atheism in China

From the 1990s to the 2000s, there was significant growth in Protestant churches in Nigeria.

Professor Eric Kaufmann's book Shall the Religious Inherit the Earth?: Demography and Politics in the Twenty-First Century remains an outstanding work of scholarship. Eric Kaufmann is an agnostic.
