2,565 official saints. It is speculated that a little more than 100 billion people have ever lived on Planet Earth. Say half of them came after Jesus Christ, when the Catholic church was formed. Then, you have one chance in 20 million to become a saint. As around 15% of the world is Catholic, your odds improve to one chance in 3 million if you're Catholic. Both Jesus' parents were made saints, this is why there are so many schools named St. Mary's and St. Joseph's.
You ask, why is the percent at 55 in the the first paragraph and 72 in this bar graph, when this figure was supposed to increase in this two decade period? Such is the nature of religion and surveys. This is not quantum physics, which, by the way, is a lot more arcane than religion. For example, we can only discern 4% of matter/energy, as 96% of everything has never been detected, and is temporarily known as dark matter and dark energy.
I dropped this modern marvel a year or so later, it broke, so I bought a second Schick. Now in daily use for at least six years, it looks cruddy, but still works, and well.
Infinity Razor, which can be purchased from Amazon.com for $4.24, using "carbon injected steel technology to create blades so sharp they never get dull." My chemical engineering PhD knowledge tells me that some corrosion should have occurred by now to my blade, but, no, it still works, and, therefore, this must be a modern miracle. You can Google reviews of the Infinity razor, and I suspect Gillette and Schick got their staff to talk stink about this threat. I've never bought the Infinity version because my Schick still operates well.
Why do I bother to bring this subject up today? Well, half my daily readers are new to this site, so I'm just educating a whole new generation of viewers to this astonishing facet of our lifestyle. I've suggested to many of my friends to either verify or dispute my claim, but no one has yet bothered to try.
I quote from my book:
Snopes is mystified. Got to be a miracle.
