If you had to guess, what proportion of the active DDO population would you estimate are Christians of some kind? The official demographics say 43% for everyone who has joined, and I think for once that's actually quite close to the proportion with the active population. I'd peg it at anywhere from 35-45%.

What do you think? And what would you estimate for other religions?

I think that sounds about right. Just look at the religion forum, it's the most active forum on the site and there are members that use the site solely for that section. So yeah, I'd agree that the site demographics are pretty accurate.

I think the next biggest would be atheist/agnostic. Which probably sits at like 23% Idk if they list that as well here. From there it'd probably be the Jews, followed by Muslims. I think the Jews would be a slightly larger group than the Muslims but it's definitely close. From there it probably falls into single digits and I don't feel like listing all of them, lol.

That's odd... I think there are much more Muslims than Jews.

I know, but apart from him, I think I've only met two other Jews on DDO. Muslims, by contrast, I've met a lot of.

If you count secular Jews, the number is far higher than Muslims. For those who are actually religious in any sense, it's probably about equal

I think 43% is about right. Concerning other religions, I would say Jews and the Muslims; I don't count atheists/agnostics a religious.

The amount of atheists and agnostics on DDO is probably disproportionate to the actual amount of atheists and agnostics in the United States, or even Europe for that matter.

Most people are atheist. They just go to church or claim christian for social reasons.
