Abstract: The scientific paradigm embraces the value of cumulative progress: theories are tested, advances are made, and the field moves forward. Religious evolutions, however, seldom follow that trend. There are usually returns to fundamentalisms, forefathers or a pristine state. As we look at the future of religion over the next 10-30 years, which “returns” offer the most fruitful direction for those looking to “hack” -- or reconfigure -- religion to meet 21st century challenges? I offer suggestions, and outline the rules for the Ten Year Game -- an attempt to build a next-gen religion that thrives on opposition and crowd-sources wisdom.
