    This is insane.I could have sworn that the game says it favors no religion over any other as to not offend people.I'm not offended,but annoyed because to me this is a glitch.

    All religions should get an equal chance.....not whoever gets to Monothiesm gets a better spread.

    No wonder the majority of my games were jewish dominated.Then again I play against the religious types alot.

    Christianity because I'm an Eurocentrist. I know, I'm despicable.

    I don't know why, but I lol at this and the ensuing posts shocked by it.

    As an atheist, all religions are just primitive voodoo to me. So I tend to look at it as an alien would. What has the coolest symbol? Judaism followed by Taoism. I also try to match up what the missionaries look like to the other units of my civ. So a bald Gandi-looking dude wouldn't really fit coming out England.

    I have toaism over judaism, but otherwise i agree. I always choose toaism , also my preprogrammed build queues (number keys) have the taosm buildings favored, and to change that I CBA'd.

    I never, ever voluntairily choose or convert to islam.

    It is hard to justify given the current state of the world. But then again, I can't justify taking Christianity either. While the Jews have certainly been violent in the past (the old testament is horr-ific), Islam and Christianity are just so immediately horrible in our current world that next to them, the Jews and eastern religions seem downright wonderful.

    I find it really interesting that out of almost 50 people, no one chose Hinduism or Buddhism. Any reason behind this?

    I chose Islam myself, but I could have easily gone with Christianity. I'm not a fan of the Chinese religions, because they're not really "religions" and so they don't fit in historically.

    Because Hindusim and buddhism are always dominant in regular games, so they want something new. I honestly don't care which religion I found.

    I was a bit disappointed that Jedi was not included as a late game religion, maybe available with Mass Media. I certainly know i'd convert all my cities ;)

    Nah, The Force should prolly be like a future tech religion. Scientology could be your Mass Media religion, though. Then you could have little Tom Cruise or John Travolta lookin' missionaries running around the map.

    Agree. Though I do find myself getting Confusionism the most often.
