I think that's mostly because christianity shares a little bit of its mythology with Judaism. It's true that it's pretty wrong to just lump them together, especially since they're so incredibly different from each other.

[02:23:18] @amr97: Modern art includes artistic works produced during the period extending roughly from the 1860s to the 1970s, and denotes the style and philosophy of the art produced during that era.
[02:23:20] @amr97: The term is usually associated with art in which the traditions of the past have been thrown aside in a spirit of experimentation.
[02:24:26] +Superbird: opinions, amr97, not definitions
[02:24:49] @amr97: oh
[02:24:52] @amr97: i don't get it

That is odd, definitely. Like, yeah, as Superbird pointed out, Christianity and Judaism are both Abrahamic religions, so I guess you could sort of justify combining them into one category on that basis? But if you're going to do that, then why is Islam separate?

The list of religions also just generally looks weird to me, but apparently this is based on UK census data... The UK has a much more different distribution of religious affiliations than the US than I was expecting! Like, I was weirded out that there would be enough Sikhs for that to be considered a major category... then again I can't actually find any data that goes out to six different groups in the US (not including atheist/unaffiliated), so maybe it's actually the next major group after Hindu here as well, it's just so small that it's not usually reported. According to this Pew Research data, it would fall under "Other World Religions," as part of just 0.3% versus over 1% in the UK data.
