Earth's population was shrunk into a village of just 100
people - with
all the human ratios existing in the world still remaining
- what would
this tiny, diverse village look like?
exactly what Phillip M. Harter, a medical dr. at
Stanford University School of Medicine, attempted
to figure out. This is what he found.
57 would be Asian
21 would be European
14 would be from the Western Hemisphere
8 would be African
would be female
48 would be male
70 would be non-Christian
30 would be white
70 would be nonwhite
30 would be Christian
89 would be heterosexual
11 would be homosexual
6 people would possess 59 percent of the entire worlds
and all 6 would be from the United States.
80 would live in substandard housing
70 would be unable to read
50 would suffer from malnutrition
1 would be near death.
1 would be pregnant
1 would have a college education
1 would own a computer
The following is an anonymous interpretation:
Think of it this way. If you live
in a good home, have plenty to eat and
can read, you are a member of a very select group. And
if you have a good
house, food, can read and have a computer, you are among
the very elite.
If you have never experienced the
danger of battle, the loneliness of
imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation....
ahead of 500 million people in the world.
If you can attend a church meeting
without fear of harassment, arrest,
torture, or death,...you are fortunate, more than three
billion people in
the world can't.
If you have food in the refrigerator,
clothes on your back,
a roof overhead and a place to sleep...you are richer
than 75% of this world.
If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare
change in a dish
someplace...you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy.
If your parents are still alive and still married....
you are very rare, even in the United States.
If you hold up your head with a smile on your face and
thankful....you are blessed because the majority can,
but most do not.
If you can hold someone's hand,
hug them or even
touch them on the shoulder you are blessed because
you can offer a healing touch.
If you can read this message, you
just received a double blessing in that
someone was thinking of you, and futhermore, you are more
over two billion people in the world.. that cannot read
Have a good day, count your blessings. And please pass
this on !!
