Will Muslims Take Over the World?

I have been reading a facinating and troubling book entitled America Alone by Mark Steyn. The thesis of he book is that within a few decades at most America will be standing alone against a fascist Islamic empire that encompasses not only the Middle East and a lot of Asia, but most of Europe as well. This empire will not come about by military force. It will come about because Muslim immigrants will take over many European countries from the inside.

The possibility for this Islamic conquest has arisen because, while the Muslim birth rate in these European countries is high (and their populations growing), the birth rates of the native French, Italians, Germans, Spanish, etc., is in serious decline--in fact the birth rates in these countries is low enough to invite the possibility of the extinction of these European peoples.

Consider thre birth rate in the United States. Steyn reports that in the U.S., there are 2.1 births per woman--the level which demographers claim is barely sufficient for a stable population. In other words, Americans are having just enough children to replace those who die. If this rate of birth continues or increases a little, then America can escape an Islamic take-over from within. But, the birth rates among non-Muslims in these European nations is well below 2.1. They are in serious population decline. This also means that the native populations in Europe are getting "older"--there are more senior citizens compared to younger citizens. This forecasts economic disaster for these European welfare states before very long, with many of the younger Muslims (who will be in the majority soon) poised to seize control of the governments of these nations.

Charles Martel is turning over in his grave! What he did in 732 by defeating the Muslims at the Battle of Tours (preventing them from moving from Spain into central Europe), is being undone by the economic stupidity, political correctness, and self-indulgence of his descendants.

What can we do about this Muslim take-over of Europe and (possibly) the world? If Steyn is right, it is probably too late for Europe. "Eurabia" (as he calls it) is likely a foregone conclusion. And even if the Europeans could do something to prevent this disaster, they don't have the political guts to do it. As for America, we need to do two things. First, we need to educate people about this threat. We don't want to live in an Islamic theocracy. But that may lie down the road if we don't wake up. Second, we need to start having babies.

So, ladies and gentlemen, lisen up! Forget about that new house or new boat you want to buy. Forget about the dream vacations you can take when you're not saddled with children. Let go of your self-indulgent lifestyle! The common good is at stake here! Go home. Put on some romantic music. Turn the lights down low. Get into bed and start saving the world!

You are so right. This is what my blog is about.

Our culture has become necrophilic; rather than have children, we love objects and wealth. The white race is dying.

Any idea what the birthrate among muslims is? Did I miss that somewhere in there?

And I'm sure that religion, not race, was the central issue here.

Dr.Cowan,
That was a pretty good tease. I almost bought it. I think you probably presented reproduction as a conclusion just to see how many of us would buy into it.
I bet your real opinion is that Christians need to evagelize more. The reason I think that is because you spend your writing and going to various places to teach the word.

Lee thinks that my encouragement for non-Muslims to have more children (in order to avoid a Muslim theocracy) was only in jest. He is mistaken. Of course, we ought to do more evangelism of Muslims. That is the only solution that has eternal consequences. However, Christians ought to care about temporal issues too. Evangelism is not the only reason God has left his people on the earth. So, no, I am quite serious. Get busy producing babies, non-Muslim America! If you don't want your children to grow up in a Muslim theocratic dictatorship, this is your moral obligation!

I am reading this book right now.
It resonates with what the bible says. The riches of the world would be oil. And who has the oil, the muslim world.(control) and then the government will turn on the true belivers in a creator.
I am a United states citizen. Born and raised in thi USA. I always believesd it to be a great place to live. Now I wonder? we are on the verge of a political desaster. If Obamma wins the presidential election, watch out, he is still a Muslim. I feel he is a plant to get the US in a very percarius position. You see so many Muslims in this country, marring their first cusins, causing sickness and grief without anyone noticeing. (But it is better to be political correct than speak out for our rights as citizens of this United States of America) What a joke.
What has happend to our belief in the United Stats of America. In the constitution. I know we have been to quick to let imigrents have the rights that citizens have, so concerend about being politicaly correct, and not standing up for our rights
that we sit back and think this horendious thing will not happen.
I truly believe Styens view is so right on, that it is a very frightining truth.
Most of us want to push under the covers, and go on with our persute of materializem.
What a sand condition.
Our young people do not see this, because as we as the older geniration have not tought them the true meaning of freedom. the freedom oure forfathers fought so hard to abtain.
What must we do?

Well, all of this is frightening to say the least. The only problem I have which doesn't add up is that there are approximately 1 billion Muslims and 2 billion Christians of all denominations all over the world and that is only combined only half of the world's population of 6 million. So this idea that the Muslims will take over the world doesn't totally add up since Christians outnumber Muslims two to one.
That's the only question I have as to the validity that they will take over. How can they if Christians outnumber them 2 to 1, at least at this point? Also, in Europe they are no long letting many Muslims come into many countries. They have stopped immigration. So the statistics confuse me somewhat. There is a threat and I am suspicious of Mr. Obama for president. We do have some serious issues here.

Dr. Steve Cowan said...

Anonymous doesn't think that my numbers add up because Christians still outnumber Muslims 2 to 1 in the world. In response, I have to say, first, that he (she?) failed to recognize a bit of hyperbole in the title of my post ("Will Muslmims Take Over the World"). Certainly, it would probably be quite some time (if ever) that Muslims take over the whole world.

Nevertheless, the main point of my post was that they are well on their way to conquering Western Europe. The large numbers of Christians cited live mostly in Central and South America. And sure, immigration has been curtailed in many of these European nations. So what? The Muslims that are already present in those nations are giving birth to many, many children, and the native Europeans are not producing enough babies to replace themselves. In about 50 years (maybe less), the Muslims in Western Europe will seriously outnumber the native Europeans. When that happens (and it is GOING to happen!--unless the Europeans resort to genocide or the Muslims convert to Christianity), Western Europe will quickly become a Muslim theocracy. There is no doubt about it.

This post was somewhat bias. You can easily see the fears placed amongst ignorant minds. "Oh Obama is muslim he must not be president". Well not exactly what he said but might as well be. People just fear change I belive you are right to some point but stating that the EP will succumb to theocracy is nonsense.

Dr. Steve Cowan said...

Green 2.0 somehow thinks my post was an attack on Obama and his push for "change". Well, I wrote this post before I ever even heard the name "Obama." Nothing in this post had anything whatsoever to do with the recent Presidential election. I was not about making people think Obama was Muslim so they wouldn't vote for him.

And his statement that my claim that Europe would succumb to muslim theocrasy was "nonsense" makes me think that he didn't read the post very carefully. Given that muslims will greatly outnumber native europeans in a few decades, and given that many (if not most) muslims in europe are already calling for sharia law, hwo can it be nonsense to think that a theocracy is on the way in Europe? You need to show that my argument is flawed in some way,but you haven't. It's actually nonsense that you think muslims won't implement a theocracy in Europe.

dr. you should re read the green2.0 post.. it is clearly talking about the post by anonymous @ 1:46 am and not your original post. So you shouldn't be so quick to make green 2.0 feel like the post was invalid or wrong... you should learn to read more carefully.. and that leads me to this..... I can't trust what you say b/c you can't even respond to the post correctly.

Dr. Steve Cowan said...

Sorry if I offended you, Jason. It was certainly not my intend to misread gree2.0's comment if that's what I did. I have to disagree with you, though, when you say that green2.0's post was "clearly" referring the comment at 1:46am. It was not clear at all, and his use of the word "post" (rather than "comment") is what made me think he was responding to my original post. Perhaps green2.0 should chime in and clarify him(her)self.

This rumor of a Musilim take over is scary, VERY scary. Here in Australia, Muslims walk the streets in our cities in droves! I may as well live in Antartica if the Muslims DO take over Australia. Come on, non-Muslims, HAVE SOME BABIES! Let's show these Muslim "conquerors" that we still have OUR potential to combat them! Politians here in Australia should stop importiing these people, for they are the real "infidels" and I want want our kids to have to run in the streets wearing a cloth over their head..

all of you are scared of the truth and if it was a bad thing than GOD would not let it go this far. dont be ignorant. islam is the truth, thats why islam ruled for so long before the crusades. it is the way of moses it is the way of abraham it is the way of all the prphets. and all of jesus people hated him. and the only people that loved him was his mother and some family. i know islam is the right way cause all of u hate it like they hated jesus.just think if christianity is the right way then why did the crusades start by the pope and not the muslims? the catholics were jeolos of power thats all. we were living in peace. the uthmanian empire was defeated because they were not thinking of war so they lost.i can see in ur hearts that u christians are planning another devilish crusade against GOD because ur scared. abraham worshipped one god moses worshipped one god isaih worshipped one god and solomon worshiped one god. so all of a suden jesus comes and theres the father son and holy spirit. that is a pagan idea taught by paul the pagan who slaughter thousands of christians and all of a suden hes an apostle lol. would u let hitler be an apostle after killing all those jews? you wont even let a man who went to prison get a job without going through hell. so all im saying is that u christians dont care about right and wrong u only care about urself and ur own interest for wealth and domination and u use christianity as a tool. gay marriage in church lol. trinity lol. jesus died on the cross for our sins lol. ur all roman pagans with state of the art technology so u appear good.the reason why islam is spreading is because this is the age of science, truth, and technology and common sense. islam teaches rationality and christianity teaches fables and myths that can only be believed and not explained like the trinity. our children are getting smarter and there not holding onto faith blindly like u old people are. they are truly investigating islam. and they are honoring the truth by submiting to GOD.

Its amazing how we systematically are being extinsguished in western europe. Under the flag of tolerance we will die. If you speak out you get smacked down and labbeled racist!

Im frustrated and feel alone in this thing, people are sleeping.

lol this is really funny. One person can account for general movement of religious views. A PhD in philosophy is probably among the redundant form of modern education as all other mode of practical science has surpassed it in actual impact on the world. "yes i'm being redundant if you got my joke" Growth of religion depends upon several aspects: birth rate, conversion, life expectancy, political policies, and war, among others. To make a prediction that muslims are taking over the world would be on the same pane as believing the world will end in 2012. Both only could come true in the mind of a philosopher and not in the reality of time and space being now and amongst earth.
