  that's because McD's is a global enterprise and Christianity is more or less an entity of the western world.

  Dracula knows about the christian cross but he's scared of it but he can eat a McDonalds so i beleive this unbalance is because of vampires.

My conclusion

There are too many vampires in the world lets start a cull.

McDonalds has stores in 121 countries around the world, mainly in the Americas, Europe and Asia.

According to the 1992 Encyclopaedia Britannica Book of the Year, significant Christian communities existed in 254 countries and territories around the world. That's everywhere in the world. If anything, it's far more global than McD's. Christianity also existed in the middle and far east, and in Africa before it did in most of Europe. Christianity has never been solely an entity of the western world. It was just spread through the western colonialists of the last few centuries (which is why some people have the perception that it is a western religion). There are very large Christian communities in the non-western world.

very large in relation to what ?
"very large" is a relative term.
In the eastern hemisphere, would you agree that Christianity is very much in the minority as religions go ?

you could also say the same thing about Islam, Judaism, and Buddhism. They have their own communities in every corner of the world.

  The percentage of Christians in the world was 33.9% in 1996 (same Britannica reference). It's current annual growth rate is approximately 2.3%.

Anyway, the point was:
1) Christianity is not an entity of the western world.
2) A relatively large percentage (1 in 3) of people around the world (and not only in a few countries) are at least aware of Christianity, and "the cross".

So, to suggest that "The McDonalds Golden Arches (The BIG M) is more recognisable world wide than the christian cross" seems totally unfounded to me.

But you must consider that virtually everybody in Asia knows McD's and most don't know Christ. (Think China)

Because they are'nt Christian, does'nt mean they have'nt heard of Christianity. And don't look just at the east, look at the whole world.

I believe that the original statement was Mcd's is more recognizable than the Christian Cross. If you are talking about the majority of the world's population, you have to talk about the east, since that is where most of the people live by far.
And I would be willing to bet that there are more people in China familiar with McD's than Christ.

I think the penguins have brainwashed you, mesh.
At night they sneak into your room and whisper things in your ear like "you like McDonalds. Yummy food.Mmmmmmm"

I'm sure that's the only explanation

  How can something be more recongnizible than something else? Either you recognize something, or you don't.

Yeah, I'm kinda skeptical about that fact. Christianity has been around for 2,000 years, and has fuled war after war after war after conversion attempt. Even if all people knew about Jesus is that they were being called infidels by these new infidels invading their land, they've still heard about it.

Now, maybe more people have eaten at McDonalds than current Christians living, and maybe more people have taken a burger than have taken communion, but I don't think that the golden arches are recognized by more people than the name of Jesus or a cross.

let me guess . . . you aren't what anyone would call widely travelled are you?
consider an inner city school in say Chicago or New York where most of the students don't value education and come from single mom homes. Put a picture of Buddha in front of most of them and what do they see ? a happy fat guy and nothing more. Most of them won't have a clue who Buddha was.
But I'll bet 100 percent of them know what a big mac is.
Now multiply that by 3 or 4 billion in China.

  I'll have to admit that I'm not widely traveled. *backs away from that point* And I think that Buddha wouldn't be recognizable in an inner city school. But still, the name "Jesus Christ" is pretty well known. And there are only about a billion peopl in China, but I get the point.

  on the buddhist / christian thingy...
i think it started some time late 80's or in the 90's.. but it's like some how more and more folks from the west are looking at Oriental faiths, be it buddhism, hunduism whatever-ism... and more folks from the east are converting to any denomination of christianity...

i dun have any numbers here to back it up but do reacall watching something on discovery or some documentary about christianity in china, it's very "controlled" and instead of reporting to the vatican, they have like a board of "directors" all made up of govt officials...
