    There are usually three blocs in my games, Buddhism, Hinduism, and the under-appreciated little warmonger me.

    I play with choose religions on, so when I play, Islam and Christianity are the two earliest. Islam tends to be the most popular, as I play the world map and I conquer all the Christian civs that are close together in Europe.

    You think that Christians and Confucians wouldn't have fought if they bordered eachother?

    The other day, I had a isolated start, and when I came out, every single civ was Taoist. And it was continents, too. I have no idea what the hell happened, but...

    Often one civ will found both Hinduism and Judaism because they are close together on the tech tree. Because the game checks for Judaism first when determining religion spread each turn, it tends to dominate over Hinduism. Buddhism is a major power in most games. Of course they all get swamped by my religion in the end :D

    My last game, I spread Hinduism like crazy, and it ended up having 32% of the world Hindu...and Buddist had thirteen percent, Judaism 24%, Islam 10%, and the others below ten. That game, Egypt(biggest after me) converted to Islam, right after i had converted the . .. .. .. .. . to Hinduism.

    Edit: The dominant faith is whatever I choose as my state faith during the medeval phase.

    Hinduism usually, then Buddhism, then Christianity, then Judaism, then Confucianism. Never Taoism or Islam usually.

    Of course, that's assuming I don't adopt and spread around a religion ;)
    (in which case it's usually Confucianism or Christianity)

    They did, they just didn't use them to such an extent. I do wish there were more options in the "Special Buildings" XML.

    The things they did do with it though, means that (among other things):
    - The Spiritual trait can produce "Temples" quicker, rather than each individual temple.
    - The respective technologies don't go all crazy in the Science Advisor screen (by listing each and every temple in Priesthood, for instance)
    - Organised Religion actually works.
