IF WE SHRANK THE EARTH'S POPULATION TO 100 PEOPLE....
The following is a non-biased perspective of the World's population.The author is unknown.
If we could shrink the Earth's population to a village of precisley 100 people, with all the existing human ratios remaining the same, it would look something like this-
14 from the Western Hemisphere, both north and south
Of these 100 people:
~52 would be female
~48 would be male
~70 would be non-white
~30 would be white
~70 would be non-Christian
~30 would be Christian
~89 would be heterosexual
~11 would be homosexual
~6 people would posses 59% of the entire world's wealth and all of them would be from the United States.
~80 would live in sub-standard housing
~70 would be illiterate
~50 would suffer from malnutrition
~1 would be near death;1 would be near birth
~1 would have a college education
~1 would own a computer
~ "When one considers our world from such a compressed perspective, the need for both acceptance, understanding, and education becomes glaringly apparent."
Puts things in perspective, don't it??
