This is one of those “rate of increase is decreasing” trends but it certainly is significant. How the Zero Population Growth mania turned into the “we need to import all the world’s poor people” is a bit of a mystery to me. Less than replacement reproduction does not mean the society is going to diminish to zero “if this trend continues” because it never does. It means it will be smaller. That used to be considered a Good Thing although it’s tough to run a redistributive welfare state that way. Capitalism deals with it in terms of increasing production. The former will fail, the latter will adapt.
It does get confusing when talking about 'rates' vs real actual numbers. A rate of 10% of 100 is of course 10 but maybe the actual number is 200.
Some Muslim nations’ birthrates may be in decline, but in many places their fertility rate is far higher than the rest of the population. This applies here as well in Sub Saharan Africa. Approximately 50% of the population of Sub Saharan Africa is currently made up of Muslims. This percentage has been growing significantly not declining just as it is in the USA and Europe.
Islam is the world’s fastest growing religion. This is due mostly to their high fertility rate.
“the number of Muslims is expected to increase by 70% from 1.8 billion in 2015 to nearly 3 billion in 2060.”
And here's another one:
Those two are worth the click. And there's a lot more proof for dramatically falling Muslim demographics here (LINK)
That is simply astounding!
