To present a relatively apparent communication picture from the virtual religion and its features in “the current virtualized world” or in the ground of “dual-globalized” processes requires the discussion of four basic questions in relation to the virtual religion. Although it is not possible to provide detailed and analytical answers to these questions, aspects of the questions and facets of the answers will be analyzed. As Martin Heidegger (AP 1373:1)* has suggested, a question itself possesses leading features and opens ways of thought: 1) What is the virtual religion? 2) Which ontology can offer a presence of religion in virtual-real space — vireal space? 3) Is there any fundamental difference between a virtual and the real religion? And eventually, it is important to answer the question: 4) What are the outcomes of duality space and what is the place of religion's existence? To answer these questions we will look at ongoing literature on “the virtual religion” and on religious typology in virtual space from an “ontological” view and we will analyze structural differences between these two spaces. And finally we will address the representation of religion in two spaces through a “dual globalization paradigm” and “communication paradigm of dual spacization”.
