For a religion to exist there must be at the very least two people involved. Religions usually have a founder and a body of people who believe the articles of faith as set down by the founder.

Ha! I'm in! Sign me up. I'll convert today! I'd love to see how the government handles that. :P

it takes more than just followers, there must be a charter and a vote.
i think at least 6, but i could be wrong.
there are also government forms to fill out and fees to pay.

although non profit forms are actually a contradiction and transgression of the Constitution.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Isn't that more economical than religious...?
I mean I'm not saying that there aren't economics/a funding system in religion,
but that's more of a financial/government funding proposition/want than a belief system.

The word 'religion' simply means living by rules.
You need only one person
