Like ancient civilizations and empires, religion goes in cycles.

1. Emergence/Creation
2. Acceptance
3. Death of figurehead
4. Persecution (sometimes)
5. Development of influential state
6. Split (sometimes/sometimes after death of figurehead)
7. Acceptance of new faith
8. Re-emergence/reform (Modernized religion)

Between steps, the religion changes (sometimes by only small details or sometimes whole concepts). Do you think that all religions (or most) go through this cycle, and if so, how do you think each step brings change to the faith?
