    POD & J,

    Did you think it was great and liked it because “blue” is the clear winner?

    I wasn’t really looking at it as a race. I’m not convinced that the number of adherents to any ideology makes it a clear “winner.” It is interesting that you focused on xianity. I thought it was great because it showed in a simple, visual form the expansion of some world religions over history. Although it excluded the so called animistic and indigenous faith traditions I though it made a clear portrait of the other world religions . It also showed quickly patterns of growth and that over the past three hundred years there has been an incredible expansion and contraction of faiths.

    I’m sure that my experience informs my viewing of this simple film on multiplication. I was trained to be a Christian missionary, and when I rejected the necessity of “bringing others to Jesus” I quit being interested in xianity’s multiplication. The more that I studied the Bible, other people’s faith traditions and friends who had no faith tradition at all I found it difficult to believe that Jesus followers own the corner on truth.

    Thanks for the challenging question.

Agnostic Atheism Wager

Whether or not you believe in God, you should live your life with love, kindness, compassion, mercy and tolerance while trying to make the world a better place. If there is no God, you have lost nothing and will have made a positive impact on those around you. If there is a benevolent God, you will be judged on your merits and not just on whether or not you ignored the lack of evidence of his/her existence and blindly believed.
