I didn't know all the European countries (except Russia, but it's also in Asia) were so small in population.

While I hadn't given this much thought, I was aware, and I suspect you were als, that the size of the European Union is approximately equal to the size of the United States. Approximating the biggest countries as roughly (France, Spain, UK, and Italy) gives the reasonable estimate for those countries to be about 60-80 million folks. So not all that surprising that they don't crack the top ten.

I could not have put Nigeria or Pakistan on this list.

Re: Well.
My endless complaints about Christians and Muslims in the former India (which includes modern post independence India, plus Pakistan, Bangladesh, and - far enough back - Afghanistan) reproducing like jack rabbits while the Hindus are shrinking (down to 60% today compared to 82% 100 years ago), cause me to know several of the others.

What is your complaint, exactly?

Re: Why I like the Hindus.
I have read your post and I still have no idea what your complaint is about.

Hinduism (and its off shoots) is perhaps the world's most tolerant religion.

Okay...

Re: Tolerance and the Hindu-Buddhist foundation of the nation India.
Amazing that there is no example of Hindus ever killing Jews in 2000 years.

What is the basis of such an assertion? Marc900 told you?
