Population Of the World by Religion: About 85% people of the world is identified with a religion. The most popular religion is Christianity, followed by an estimated 2.38 billion people worldwide. Islam is the second popular religion which is practiced by more than 1.91 billion people. However, demographic researchers predict that Islam will almost catch up to Christianity by 2050. One popular estimate claims that there are around 4000-4300 religions worldwide, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, but this number is highly disputed.
These religions come under two categories, the first is “folk religion“, & second is “other religions”, a catch-all that includes minor religions such as Shintoism, Taoism, Sikhism and Jainism. Folk religion collects traditional African religions, Chinese folk religions, and both Native American and Australian aboriginal religion. A significant number of people—nearly 1.2 billion worldwide—remain nonreligious or have Atheist beliefs. Today in this article we will share with you 7 major world religions
