what about mormons?[edit]

Why are they totally ignored in this article? --Raminagrobis (talk) 22:27, 31 January 2017 (UTC)

From an anthropological perspective, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is covered under Christianity. Then there's the issue of due weight: Mormons make up less than 1% of Christians worldwide. That they are mentioned in a single sentence while Baptists and Methodists are not is actually unbalanced. While Rastafari is smaller, they are typically regarded as a distinct religion. If we were going to argue (which we're not going to because Wikipedia doesn't promote any belief and doesn't use original research) that Mormon theology renders them distinct enough from mainstream Christianity that they should be treated separately, then portions of Mormon cosmology (particularly the plurality of Gods, of which the God of this world is just part of a cycle) would place Mormonism completely outside of Abrahamic monotheism.

Islam's creator cannot trace his bloodline to Abraham.[edit]

That being said this intro to Abrahamic religions is inaccurate and must be edited . Abrahamic religions, emphasizing and tracing their common origin to the tribal patriarch Abraham.I will ad supporting facts shortly I have to move the motorcoach . — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kaosktrl (talkcontribs) 13:25, 18 March 2017 (UTC)

The overwhelming majority of Christians aren't descendants of Shem, let alone Abraham -- I'd ask "what's your point?" but Wikipedia is not a pulpit for your beliefs and we do not want your research. All we do is cite and summarize professionally-published mainstream academic or journalistic sources, without commentary. Ian.thomson (talk) 13:32, 18 March 2017 (UTC)

Demographics[edit]

The following sentence seems wrong to me:

As of 2005, estimates classified 54% (3.6 billion people) of the world's population as adherents of an Abrahamic religion, about 32% as adherents of other religions, and 16% as adherents of no organized religion.

Firstly, I guess it actually means either:

1. As of 2005, estimates classified 54% (3.6 billion people) of the world's population as adherents of an Abrahamic religion, about 32% as adherents of other religions, and 16% as not adhering to any religion.

Or:

2. As of 2005, estimates classified 54% (3.6 billion people) of the world's religious people as adherents of an Abrahamic religion, about 32% as adherents of other organized religions, and 16% as adherents of religions without a specific organization.

Secondly, a reference is necessary. Palpalpalpal (talk) 09:47, 3 April 2017 (UTC)

It was probably compiled for List of religious populations that uses http://www.adherents.com/Religions_By_Adherents.html as a citation. Richard-of-Earth (talk) 19:39, 3 April 2017 (UTC)
