    There's no point to a future religion in the game, unless it came with like 5 missionaries and even then it would be under-powered.

    Although it would give that inevitable late-game Great Prophet something to do ...

    Jediism. If that doesn't make it in then there is no justice in the world

    If Firaxis wanted to add new religions, I'd say Zoroastrianism (Spelt right? I dobut it) and an early Egyptian religion.

    In the UK, when our last census occured in 2001, many people called for others to put Jedi down as their chosen religion. Apparentley, if enough people named this as their religion, then it would have to be classified as an official religion in the UK as it would represent a significant proportion of the population. From what I understand, it wasn't far off either.

    I know, I was just joking. IIRC they tried the same thing is Australia. The problem is, Jedi is the name of a role, not a religion. No one lists themselves as Bishop when asked their religion.

    Chavism :p

    Zoroastrianism, Paganism, Jainism and Sikhism would be the best to add

    It could be more detailed though. Offer some benefits and disadvantages although not be as good and not as beneficial as the other religions meaning you would have to switch eventually for the best benefits.

    Perhaps, but a few of the religions come so early.

    I think that, unless you make them only available through costly 'Gateway' techs, adding more than 1 extra religion would only dilute the value of religion within the game. What I would rather see them do is focus their energy on providing means for players to 'differentiate' their current faiths-and to better simulate the conflict which can occur between different faiths and sects. Now THAT would be a great addition.
