World Buddhist Population: Pre-eminence of Mahayana Tradition

It is noteworthy that until about 2010, the estimates made of the Buddhist population of most countries in the world, especially of the traditionally Buddhist countries, have been grossly underestimated. This led to the marked underestimation of the total Buddhist population of the world.

Gross underestimation has been the order of the day until very recent times. " class="caption" align="right" />

“Aliens do exit!” Lockheed Martin Scientist in Extraordinary Claim

Judging by the airtime taken by three major, global television channels – Discovery, National Geographic and History – in broadcasting lengthy programmes on the subjects of supernatural every single day, it makes perfect sense to assume that the cumulative public interest in extra-terrestrials or aliens has never been more intense than it is now.
