It's simple. Why do people choose Honda Civic over Mazda 3? Better advertisement and more powerful sales force. (this car example may not be entirely precise, but you get the idea).
Also, if my friend or my family member is a Christian (and I like my friends and family), why would I become a muslim?
Mass religion is nothing more than a car enthusiasts club in its essence. But, their group drives tend to be more dramatic and attract more attention. Occasionally, they ran people over, but for good reasons.
Now, back to the original questions!
