One would have to agree that this is a very subjective categorisation, both in whose version of new, and when does a religion finish being new? Also, what benefit derives from such a classification? It would seem to be more to separate from established old-world religions. -- billinghurst (talk) 10:29, 2 December 2008 (UTC)
