208. what are you talking about?
What billion people am I missing here? In this country and throughout the rest of the world, of those who believe in a (one) God, nearly all believe in the Abrahamic God: Christians, Muslims and Jews. Of the rest, Hindus are polytheistic, Buddhists and atheists are atheistic. That leaves the non-religious (we're not talking about them), Sikhs and Baha'is (I know little about them) and OTHER religions (11%). Are you talking about the 'other religions?' 11% of 6 billion ~660 million. Of those, how many do you think are monotheistic worhsippers of one God?

Here is my point: I say "God" in reference to the Abrahamic God because that is the God who the majority of the world and the majority of American believers follow. We seem to be having a problem of miscommunicating. Sorry you feel like you've wasted your time.
