800 Million Muslims out of 1.4 billion are completely illiterate
A worrying statistic and it reveals why indoctrination is so widespread amongst the followers of 'the Religion of Peace' and education and freedom of expression are so frowned upon by it's leading clerics.

Of the 1.4 billion Muslims, 800 million are illiterate (6 out of 10 Muslims cannot read). In Christendom, adult literacy rate stands at 78 percent.

Muslims are 22 percent of the world population and produce less than five percent of global GDP. Even more worrying is that the Muslim countries’ GDP as a percent of the global GDP is going down over time.

The Arabs, it seems, are particularly worse off. According to the United Nations’ Arab Development Report: “Half of Arab women cannot read; One in five Arabs live on less than $2 per day; Only 1 percent of the Arab population has a personal computer, and only half of 1 percent use the Internet; Fifteen percent of the Arab workforce is unemployed, and this number could double by 2010; The average growth rate of the per capita income during the preceding 20 years in the Arab world was only one-half of 1 percent per annum, worse than anywhere but sub-Saharan Africa.”

The planet’s poorest countries include Ethiopia, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan, Cambodia, Somalia, Nigeria, Pakistan and Mozambique. At least six of the poorest of the poor are countries with a Muslim majority.

Fifty-seven Muslim majority countries have an average of ten universities each for a total of less than 600 universities for 1.4 billion people; India has 8,407 universities, the U.S. has 5,758. From within 1.4 billion Muslims, Abdus Salam and Ahmed Zewail are the only two Muslim men who won a Nobel Prize in physics and chemistry (Salam pursued his scientific work in Italy and the UK, Zewail at California Institute of Technology). Dr Salam in his home country is not even considered a Muslim.

Over the past 105 years, 1.4 billion Muslims have produced eight Nobel Laureates while a mere 14 million Jews have produced 167 Nobel Laureates. Of the 1.4 billion Muslims less than 300,000 qualify as ‘scientists’, and that converts to a ratio of 230 scientists per one million Muslims. The United States of America has 1.1 million scientists (4,099 per million); Japan has 700,000 (5,095 per million).

Consider, for instance, that Muslims constitute 22 percent of world population with a 1 percent share of Nobel Prizes. Jews constitute 0.23 percent of world population with a 22 percent share of Nobel Prizes.

On t'other hand, 99% of North Koreans are literate (a figure accepted by the US Library of Congress, according to Wiki).

It's a toss-up as to who is better informed, a literate North Korean, or an illiterate Muslim.

“It also showed that it had improved significantly under Labour until the Tory Party got in..."


“They aren't my words take it up with “
------------------------------------------------------------------

Actually having looked it up I remember reading this now from the time 2013. The trouble is they aren’t his words are they & nor in the report as linked on the actual BBC page.

You’ve completely made it up.

So not only are you a hypocrite & self righteous , you're a liar as well.

I'd totally agree that it doesn’t bode well for the future of this country , but to use an actual quote from someone making an observation on it:

"These are Labour's children, educated under a Labour government and force-fed a diet of dumbing down and low expectations."

This is not surprising. It's a fact that studies showed the greater the intelligence, the less likely people are to be religious.

I didn't Sterling, was just trying to counter the poverty argument, undoubtedly it is one factor but not the only one and it wouldn't just apply to one religion either surely?

So 800 million are not reading WHO? that means that Texas Iron is missing out on 800 million Facebook and Twitter followers.

Jared Diamond's book, Guns, Germs, and Steel..., proposes one suggestion.

Why did Western civilization become hegemonic: "History followed different courses for different peoples because of differences among peoples' environments, not because of biological differences among peoples themselves."

India also has a massively bigger population and will have many, many millions more people [mainly Hindus] in abject poverty than in Pakistan.

This merely proves India has a bigger population than Pakistan.

That's not actually true. I thought it was the case but it's not... there is not a lot of difference in it though.

Re: 800 Million Muslims out of 1.4 billion are completely illiterate
You give yourself far too much importance & credit my friend as you’ve ably demonstrated on this & past occasions.

All I promised you is that I’ll point out some of your hypocritical nonsense as & when I see it. You can look it up as it clearly bothers you, but to the best of my memory I’ve probably posted about 3 times at most in responses to you over the last month. So hardly everytime is it & or Stella Creasy proportions my old mucka & my advice is don’t let your paranoia get the better of you.

Why would I want the link, you’re the one justifying it & perhaps you can actually counter the obvious points I’ve highlighted rather than just crying about it.

If you want the link to the latest figures you can get it from the BBC website , was only on there yesterday
