The Second Coming

Second Comming. Will the decline in the direct belief in Jesus be offset by an increase in belief in him indirectly through other regions?

Description

Bet Description

Betfair-Metaphysical.com lets you play the 2021 Census in England and Wales (E&W).  All bets relate to the ‘What is Your Religion?’ question on the census. A census happens every ten years and Census Day 2021 is Sunday March 21, 2021. The Census is run by the Office for National Statistics and is administered to 20 million households. More details can be found at https://census.gov.uk/.

Belief in Christianity and Jesus declined between 2001 and the last census in 2021. But many other religions revere Jesus as a deity, holy person or prophet. So Jesus has a 2nd chance. Will the decline in the direct belief in Jesus be offset by an increase in belief in him indirectly, through other regions?

Decision Logic

This bet will be resolved upon publication by the Office for National Statistics or the British Religion in Numbers Department of the University of Manchester, of analysis which shows a comparison between these affiliations on a comparable basis such as the BRIN paper:

Religious Census 2011 – What happened to the Christians? (Part II) | British Religion in Numbers

In the event of any dispute or non-publication, Betfiar-Metaphysical will seek clarification from BRIN.

For the purposes of this bet the Religions which ‘include’ a belief in the divinity/holiness of Christ, other than Christianity are:

Baha’i, Church of All Religion, Druze, Islam, Mixed Religion, Rastafarianism, Unification Church, Unitarian Universalist.
