Ever wondered exactly how many people claim Zoroastrian as their religious denomination? Wonder no more.

Canada's National Post has compiled all the available data on the world's religions into one handy and decidedly comprehensive infographic. (The answer is 110,000).

Marvel at the enduring strength of Indigenous religions (500 million), guffaw at the persistence of Wicca (1 million), wonder what the hell Yazidi might be (700,000), arch an eyebrow at the Samaritans (745) and be relieved at the rising power of secularity (1.1 billion), all the while burrowing further and further into a mid-afternoon Wiki-hole.
