This is textbook of public education non standards in which only part of the story or picture is told. So too is it with the OP.
For it is obvious to those versed in the Word that numbers and quantities mean nothing with God.
Was it not so that with Noah and his family there were only 8 people left on the earth who had not been defiled by the wisdom and traditions and boasting of men?? Only 8 people and one of them perfect in their generations..Noah.
And they are boasting about 1 in 5 being unbelievers?? Wow!! This is what I mean by public education and concealing or hiding the big picture. "I will ever conceal and never reveal...not by mark, step, sign, or inscription."
For this is Lucifers method... to cause confusion..by telling only half the story or knowledge.
The Christian on meat and not on milk..knows that all deserve hell and damnatation....all men...no exceptions. This includes Christians as well. For the Believer knows what happened to men by Adam...as well as what it means for him.
Once you know and believe what is in the Word...it makes the OP and questions such as quoted above to be silly or moot and only demonstrating the false sophistry of men trying to pass as intelligence when it is not such thing.
Hope this helps and clarifies,
