I don't see Assyrian Christianity there but I am not disappointed, although compared to some other numbers, I think it is big enough to be mentioned. But I think they included us under some other sects.

Ok, you have a point, this is not about churches but more about the different religious sects.

I meant to say 'Assyrian Church of the East'

Ahh..I figured, but thanks for clarifying.  You're right though, the ACOE is probably included in the Catholic or Orthodox denomination.

It is cool...I'm just not sure how accurate.

For example...How can they not have any data for Libya?

Only 146 Million Atheists?.. We still live in a primitive world.
Dude, not all nonbelievers call themselves "atheists". Some parts of the world don't even know what "atheist" is despite being atheists. You saw for yourself that there are a billion of people who don't adhere to any religion. By definition, they are atheists anyway (even if they're agnostic, secular, humanist and whatnot). If you simply lack belief in a god, you're an atheist. So don't be despaired.

Still... the whole human population should be Atheist, all religions cause backwards thinking.

Hm wow, what a branch off of Christianity (no pun intended). This sect was ruled as heresy by the major church institutions at the time
I think it isn't though. We're influenced by it, but we're not. I got this from Wiki:

But not all churches affiliated with the Church of the East appear to have followed Nestorian Christology; indeed, the modern Assyrian Church of the East, which reveres Nestorius, does not follow all historically Nestorian doctrine.

Are Druze really Muslims?
Druze, Ahmadiya and Bahais  originated from Islam. However, Druze and Bahai's label themselves as Druze and Baha'is whereas Ahmadis still refer to themselves as Muslims. It's best to ask them personally about what they consider themselves to be and don't ask a muslim about them because they will give you a biased view.
