COMPARISON DATA: The comparison data is for data on 9/23/07 compared to 8/11/07.
NEWLY ADDED: Twelve new items added this round. Special thanks goes out to John's Secret Identity for his contributions: Rastafari, Unitarianism, Sikh, Amish, Sikhism, Shinto, Neopaganism, Bahai, Jainism, Mennonite and Zoroastrianism. I added Confucianism all on my own.
NEWLY DELETED: None this round. We have 43 religious terms on the list presently. Perhaps in future rounds we will try to keep it at 50 and under. 50 sounds like a good amount to track, especially considering we don't get paid to do this. Not yet anyway. *evil laugh* Of course, we don't know anyone who would ever pay us for this.
OBSERVATIONS: The Flying Spaghetti Monster had the highest percentage gain for this round at an 18.9% increase in the number of designs, followed by Muhammad, Dagon and Hindu. No others had a double-digit increase in terms of percentage gains. Christian, God, Jesus and Pagan had the largest number of additional designs uploaded since Round Five, furthering their respective leads for dominance. Atheist, Wiccan and Jewish put up some respectible numbers as well. Scientology was the only one to lose ground this round with a 1.3% decline.
