It seems to me it's pure luck as to what religion one would choose. If you were born in the States, it's a pretty good chance that you would be born into a Christian home or at least a Christian community. Born in India I bet you might become Hindu. What I'm saying is not to many convert from what they were born into. So for one religion to claim to be the on nd all others stink. Be True to your school. My Country is the best Country in the Universe.
Originally posted by RBHILLThe percentage is substantially higher than 30%. But most of the conversions find place within the christian family.

Originally posted by karoly aczelStill being born into a christian doesn't make you a christian or any other religion you are born into. So technically it should be at 100% convertion.
So why does any of this matter?
It just highlights the habituation that most people are subject to from birth. To do something truly origonal/spiritual will require the adept to "go inside" . Any outer classifications are arbitary and of not much consequence.

Originally posted by finneganI am not sure where this fits into what you are saying, but Zambia was converted to Christianity in a relatively short space of time. Most people still retain much of the cultural beliefs though.
Anthropology shows that most societies have a consistent set of beliefs that embraces economic social and family life together with a cosmology - a story about how things come to be as they are. That's a big package to unload. Maybe the topic to focus on is the process of losing a faith, which for many people is traumatic. It not only requires huge adjustm ...[text shortened]... te. When people are stressed they will revert to the solutions that soothed them in childhood.
