These reasons include: the religions which are not included on the classical list are too new (Scientology, Neo-Paganism) they are concentrated in only one country (Cao Dai, Ch'ondogyo, Tenrikyo) they lack identifiable central organizations or unifying scriptural literature (Neo-Paganism, New Age, Spiritism) their adherents primarily name a different, more established traditional religion as their religious preference (most practitioners of Vodoun are nominal Catholics, practitioners of New Age religions are often nominally Protestant, Catholic or Jewish) their religion is still strongly associated with a major religion from which it arose, but no longer wishes to be an official part of (Tenrikyo and many other Japanese New Religious Movements, as well as many religions emerging from Indian/Hindu environments) In order to rank religions by size, two parameters must be defined: With a working definition of "a religion" and a method for measuring size, criteria for what constitutes a "major" religion must be determined, otherwise this list could be impractically inclusive and long.
