. . . In rich countries, a total fertility rate of 2.1 babies per woman is needed if population is to remain stable. But in the European Union as a whole the rate is down to 1.5. Germany is at 1.4, and Italy, Spain, and Greece are at 1.3. The fertility rate in France is now 2.0, or close to replacement. But the uneasy question is whether this is due to subsidies or to the growing Muslim population . . .

Go HERE to read the entire article, POPULATION, ECONOMY AND GOD by Tom Bethell from the May 2009 issue of The American Spectator.

I have always believed that the current secularist mindset which is responsible for the downturn in the birthrate will give rise to a global era (2050 - 2100?) of religious revival in which the average person is likely to be either a Catholic Christian or a Muslim. Read Bethell's article which lends supports to my theory!
