Just read the second part of the BlueAlien interview, and wanted to give my hearty congrats and thumbs-up to the devs for their outlook regarding religion in the Transhumanist future. Too many rpgs seem to assume that religion (inevitably existing monotheistic religion) is, and always will be, absolutely core to human identity and understanding, or are too frightened to address the issue of how human advancement could well shatter such religious faiths. Are there always going to be some people who need religion or other superstitions to provide them with emotional or psychological support? Yes. But with increased human understanding of the universe and our own ability to manipulate areas previously considered purely the domain of the "divine", mainstream religion as it stands would be hard pressed to continue, and like you noted, would most likely fall by the wayside for the majority of Mankind. cheers!
