This bet is on which parody religion (Pastafarianism, Invisible Pink Unicorn, Dudeism or Matrixism) will be separately reported in the 2021 census?

Description

Bet Description

Betfair-Metaphysical.com lets you play the 2021 Census in England and Wales (E&W).  All bets relate to the ‘What is Your Religion?’ question on the census. A census happens every ten years and Census Day 2021 is Sunday March 21, 2021. The Census is run by the Office for National Statistics and is administered to 20 million households. More details can be found at https://census.gov.uk/.

In the 2021 Census of England and Wales, one or more new ‘parody’ religions will ‘place’, i.e. have their number separately reported, in the same way as ‘Jedi Kinghts’ and ‘Heavy Metal’ have made it into previous census counts. This bet is on which parody religion (Pastafarianism, Invisible Pink Unicorn, Dudeism or Matrixism) will be separately reported in the 2021 census?

Decision Logic

This bet will be resolved upon publication by the Office for National Statistics or the British Religion in Numbers Department of the University of Manchester, of analysis which shows a comparison between these affiliations on a comparable basis such as the BRIN paper:

Religious Census 2011 – What happened to the Christians? (Part II) | British Religion in Numbers

In the event of any dispute or non-publication, Betfiar-Metaphysical will seek clarification from BRIN.

For the purposes of this bet the you get to chose between four parody religions. Only the specific names Pastafarianism, Invisible Pink Unicorn, Dudeism or Matrixism will count in this bet.
