Amish population explosion - 8 million by 2110 - Demographic future of White Race lies with fundamentalist Christians

It is a fact that religious conservatives have much more children. This is seen, for example, in fundamentalist islamic societies, and with Mormons in the United states.

The coming Amish tidal wave?

Steve Sailer's iSteve Blog | Sunday, March 15, 2009

Congenial Times has a blog post and a long comment on Amish demographics. There are now somewhere approaching a quarter of a million Amish in the U.S., up from less than 10,000 a century ago. At the current growth rate of doubling every twenty years, there would be approaching eight million Amish by 2110. (Warning: Projections 100 years into the future not likely to turn out right.)

Taking 8 million in 2110, and then projecting at the same rate over the next 100 years from 2110 gives 256 million by 2210. A quarter billion...not bad. And these people are of good Northern European ethnic stock. Perhaps the white race and blondes will not go extinct over the next few centuries after all.

How many Amish are there in America?

Congenial Times | Friday, March 13, 2009

The Young Center for Anabaptist and Pietist Studies at Elizabethtown College estimates that there are 230,850 Amish living in the United States and Canada as of July, 2008. Here is their breakdown by state. Their estimate is, however, based on a rough and admittedly conservative estimate of 135 Amishmen (including unbaptized children), or about 23 households per church district, given the average Amish household size of 5.8 persons per household.

Well, in our area, the Amish and Mennonites are going multi-culti on us - mixed marriages, etc. Talk about how funny a head covering looks with a 'fro sticking out at the sides!

I agree EG.

The Mennonites are having a negative effect on the Amish community. Before the 1980s the Amish distanced themselves from the Mennonites, but the Mennonites have been forcing their culture onto the Amish.

The Mennonites break every rule the original Mennonites followed. Many Mennonites use modern conveniences, mix with outsiders, try to convert, no longer speak German, in fact, it is easy to realize that the Mennonites today have been hijacked by hippies who share no connection to the Mennonites of old.

The Amish haven't went Multi-culty as much as the Mennonites. 98% of Amish still marry other Germans, but there is a small increasing population of liberal Amish who mix's with non-Germans and adopt lots of non-German children.

These liberal Amish and Mennonites pose a serious threat to tradition, the Amish language, culture, identity, and their very survival as we remember the Amish.

The fro' comment is quite amusing, but does it really hurt to mix your genes up a bit?

Should you not lead your life on a bais of acceptance of others, rather than always looking for another way to divide 'them' from 'us'?
