A new study charting how religions will develop globally over the next four decades has predicted that one in 10 of the next generation of Europeans will be Muslim.Research published today by a US think tank has also revealed that Christianity will no longer be the world’s dominant faith by 2050, as almost all of the major religious groups will increase in numbers.
The authors sequence and analyse low-coverage genomes from 101 ancient humans from across Eurasia to reveal large-scale population migrations and replacements during this time.
We show that the Bronze Age was a highly dynamic period involving large-scale population migrations and replacements, responsible for shaping major parts of present-day demographic structure in both Europe and Asia. &rfr_id=info:sid/nature.com: Nature.com&id=doi:10.1002/(SICI)1096-8644(199902)1.0.
