Maps of war: History of religion

Seen these before? The one on the Middle East got some attention a few weeks ago, so they took the same idea and scaled it up. Static maps don’t capture the speed at which great movements advance; these do, which hits home at this particular moment in history. As Steyn says, “Permanence is the illusion of every age.” And so it is, right before your very eyes.

They should update the map with a projection of how it’ll look in, say, 2100 based on current demographic trends. If it’s attention they want, that’ll get them a boatload.
