He's full of personal bias and faulty reasoning, and when pointed out, all he's got are gradeschool comebacks, as if that accomplishes anything. Read his post history and see for yourself.
Appeal to numbers/majority. It wouldn't make a difference if 99.999999999999999999999999999999999999999999% of people believed in God and I was the sole atheist in existence, it still wouldn't mean it's true. At one point in time, the vast majority of people believed the solar system orbited the Earth, at another point in time the majority of people believed the Earth was flat, see what I'm getting at? Just because a lot of people believe something is true doesn't make it true, similar to Justin Bieber or Bjork, they sell millions of albums, does that make their music the best? Whoever sells the most is the best? Do you consider the best movie in existence to be Avatar or Titanic? Because according to the most people they are...
Well, when you're sitting there, 20 years from now, I hope you remember this statement. Unless something happens that takes out the internet worldwide, we will continue to see the numbers of people who claim any traditional religion fall. And you misunderstand me in this sense because you seem to think I want everybody to stop believing in God and until that day, I won't rest! Which isn't the case at all. I couldn't care less if people believe in God. I want people to stop killing people for/because of/in the name of God. I want people to accept reality for what it is and not ancient myths they're not prepared to get past. This is something you agree with but fail to acknowledge because of the place it's coming from.

Why does the percentage of religious followers matter?
Buddhists do not believe in a god: http://www.buddhanet.net/ans73.htm . Must recompute.Christian 33.35% (of which Roman Catholic 16.83%, Protestant 6.08%, Orthodox 4.03%, Anglican 1.26%), Muslim 22.43%, Hindu 13.78%, Buddhist 7.13%, Sikh 0.36%, Jewish 0.21%, Baha'i 0.11%, other religions 11.17%, non-religious 9.42%, atheists 2.04% (2009 est.)
2.04% + 9.42% + 7.13% = 18.59%. 100% - 18.59% = 81.41%
81.41% <> 97%
Any other variables i should know about?
edit: Actually kaendar you should really read that link. It explains perfectly why humans created god.
edit2: I'm starting to think I should become a buddhist. I mean I'm already a little chubby.
