[Well, I thought the fact that 40% of the people claiming atheism combined with the fact that the majority of believers are concentrated in the West did.]
Thought I already showed you that if the UGCC claims 4.5 to 5 million believers, and the statisics state that 10% of the 29,700,000 believers are UGC's, then at least 1/3 to 1/2 of the UGC's claimed are also listed as athiests. Do the math yoursekf - 29,700.00 X .10% = 2,970,000 [not 4.5 to 5 million].
You can't have it both ways. As someone else has tried to point out to you, what you and the article are claiming is that the vast majority of Ukrainans live in western Ukraine. What you are also implying is that its OK for someone in western Ukraine to be counted as a believer and an athiest at the same time. While its not OK in eastern Ukraine. Do the math already!
State Department or no state department, the figures don't jive. Besides, the very fact that they seem to have such precise figures for both UGC's and RC's but not Orthodox, clearly shows where the figures came from. Next time either the RCC or its graphed UGC appendage put out statistics they better sit down and do the math to check that it balances out to validate the claims being made. Because it sure doesn't in this case.
