The religion with the most adherents is Christianity. There are 2.1 billion Christians in the world, which is approximately one third of the world's population.
The next most popular religion is Islam, with 1.5 billion adherents, or approximately one fifth of the world's population.
I was interested to see that third place belongs to people with no religion - 1.1 billion people are nonreligious, agnostic or atheist. That's nearly one seventh of the people of the world's population!
Wow! These are interesting figures, I assumed it was Christianity, but with so many different religions out there, I wasn't sure. Do you know which form of Christianity is most popular?
Slightly over half of all Christians are Catholics. That is 1.2 billion people.
I have here the Atlas of Faiths as in 2002 and it shows the countries and details of of different religions :-

Around the world, the worship of self and the glorification of the human ego is the single most practiced religion. You could call it either pride or greed, as they are so closely intertwined together.
