Actually I've heard that Islam is the largest religion. I heard an estimate that
by the year 2000, over 33% of the world population will belong to the Islamic
religion. But I do have to admit that most of the religious symbolism in Eva is
Christain (actually lots of Jewish stuff too). Anno probably uses all the
Christain symbolism because he didn't expect too much in Eva sales in Saudi Arabia
