The World in which We Live

The following was sent to me over ten years ago. I do not know what the stats would be today, but this material I believe makes us think:

If we could shrink the earth's population to a village of precisely 100 people, with all the existing human ratios remaining the same, it would look like something like the following:

There would be -
57 Asians
21 Europeans
14 from the Western Hemisphere, both north and South America
8 Africans

52 would be female
48 would be male

70 would be non-white (Asian/Eastern)
30 would be white (Anglo/Hispanic)

70 would be non-Christian
30 would be Christian (includes catholic)

89 would be heterosexual
11 would be homosexual

6 people would possess 59% of the entire world's wealth,
and all 6 would be from the United States
80 would live in substandard housing
7 would be totally homeless
2 would have air conditioning

70 would be unable to read or write

50 would suffer from malnutrition
10 would have very good health
1 would be near death; 1 would be near birth

1 (yes, only 1) would have a college education

1 would own a computer

This analysis drives me to think of two words, which describe what I should become: World Christian.
