List of Religions, Sects, and Belief Systems

One day, ReligionFacts will contain profiles of every recognized religion on the planet! But for now, we offer the following list. Note: Some of the belief systems listed here may not be "religions" according to traditional definitions (they might better be called "philosophies" or "movements"), and some are even anti-religion. The grounds for a group's inclusion is simply that it offers an explanation of ultimate reality and the purpose of life, and has attracted a significant number of followers.
