That is absolutely fascinating. I never would have guessed at that distribution.
Me neither. It would be fascinating to see the various muslim sects broken out as they are in the rest of the world.
I wonder why we Buddhists are concentrated in the west? That seems rather odd, as does the Muslim concentration in the south (which MIGHT be the Ali-Bubba effect).
I blame the TV show, Kung Fu. :)
The number of Muslims in the South is startling. Not so surprised at the distribution of Judaism and Buddhism. South Carolina, Delaware and Arizona are the big surprises!
It's not something one thinks about here but it put me in mind of maps of Germany during the 30 Years War.
An excellent (if terrifying) observation.
