    What they've said about religion is that it's going to have to do with the region you're in. In the lake tahoe area it's going to be some sort of native american theme. There was a post on it, if someone would like to dig it up... (Lazy :P )

    Re:List of Religion Ideas

    i would think that it wouldn't be 100% native American as this is post apocalyptic, meaning that all different cultures came in with new religions (plus the devs did say that new religions would come as the story progressed). Plus, why should we be restricted by regional religion?

    Because it is a game with a theme. Don't be afraid to be "limited" by this, the culture and intricacies are immense. Just google Pumapunku or the TV documentary series "ancient aliens"...
