Its status as a full-fledged "religion" is questionable, and it does not claim to be one in the traditional sense. Furthermore, it does not seem to have spawned a distinctive religious culture anywhere outside of Japan, and perhaps not even in Japan -- certainly not to the degree that groups such as PL Kyodan and Tenrikyo have. It may seem incongruous to distinguish African primal traditional religions from the general primal-indigenous category. Keep in mind that although Christianity is the world's largest religion, it is an umbrella term that comprises many different branches and denominations. Alternatively termed "tribal religionists, "ethnic religionists," or "animists," estimates range from million to million. Groups such as Rastafarians, Mandeans, Tenrikyo, and the Church of Scientology are too small, too new or too unimportant in world history to be included in most surveys of "major world religions. Most recent published estimates of the world Baha'i population are about 6. Previously, adherents of African traditional religion were grouped here, and many religious statisticians would continue to do so. Should Sikhism be listed as a Hindu sect as in many older textbooks , or a world religion in its own right?
The Encyclopedia lists "Chinese folk religion" separately. Most recent published estimates of the world Baha'i population are about 6. One of the most famous modern adherents of Tenrikyo was the author Avram Davidson. For example, councils of Muslim leaders have voted to no longer accept Ahmadis as valid Muslims, although Ahmadis consider themselves orthodox Muslims. What I have seen in practice has a lot of Kardecian influence, but I expect to see what I observed with the Santeria tradition: Buddhism, for example, if viewed as a whole, can be understood to have a large amount of internal variation, including the Theravada and Mahayana branches, all of their sub-schools, various revivalist sects, as well as Tibetan and modern Western forms. Fifty years ago religious Taoism was one of the largest, strongest institutions in China. But few, if any, generalizations hold for all groups. In North Korea, once Ch'ondogyo's center, where it was, for a time, the country's second or third largest religion, it has essentially been co-opted by the government and turned into a hollow appendage of Juche. As with all religions, the complete body of adherents represent a spectrum of participation, including fully active members as well as non-attending or disengaged sympathizers. Approximately 46 million pregnancies per year reportedly end in induced abortion. So we are including Neo-Paganism on this list because the most recent sociological work in the field indicates it is a distinct religion, and because it is increasingly significant. Prior to Communist takeovers of these regions and government attempts to eradicate religion, both places had very high levels of affiliation with organized religions especially Islam, Christianity, Buddhism and Taoism , as well as high levels of participation in and belief in traditional local traditions such as shamanism, ancestor ceremonies, spiritism, etc. They merely classify Hindus as all people who call themselves Hindu, Muslims as all people who call themselves Muslim, Christians as all people who call themselves Christian. Alternatively termed "tribal religionists, "ethnic religionists," or "animists," estimates range from million to million. Only recently has Neo-Paganism become a movement of any significant size and visibility. One might generously estimate up to one million worldwide, but the actual number who would fit this criterion is probably under a half million. A large proportion of people in the surveys Zuckerman combined to arrive at this total expressly are adherents of named religions such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Chinese traditional religion, Unitarianism and Christianity. But censuses are usually conducted infrequently. Their numbers are almost entirely confined to Korea, however. For the purposes of defining a religion we need to have some cutoff point. In many areas or subgroups the African elements exist alongside an overlay of European-based elements borrowed from the economically dominant culture, from influences such as Catholicism and Kardecian spiritism. Some practitioners don't like the term Santeria at all because it implies that the tradition is a minor, heretical sect of Catholicism. For the most part, Voodoo or "Vodoun" is not an organized religion, but a form of African traditional religion practiced primarily in Haiti, Cuba and Benin.
