13. Absolutely.

Although traditionally new religions spawn from existing religions there may be some serious change in our future. The biggest threat to religion isn't atheism, it's professional sports. There are so many avenues for the expression of emotionally driven faith that religion is simply unable to compete. Given the current state of our civilization in terms of resource use, technological prowess and capability for horrific destruction, who knows what expressions of faith may crop up in the next few hundred years. We may be in for another axial age.
