You know what I find fascinating about religion this week? It’s not so much that there’s a skillion different ones, it’s that new ones are constantly being created. Take Japan, for instance: Ok, so Shinto and Buddhism ain’t cutting it for your modern life. Fine. You’ve got any number of other religions at arm’s length to choose from: Confucianism, Taoism, Sikhism, Hinduism, Jainism, Zoroastrianism, etc, and that’s all without leaving Asia for more western religions like Christianity, Baha’I, Judaism, or what have you.
