Because people still think Christianity is a factual account of history and not just a collection of stories inspiring (what is assumed to be) moral action. I'd go for Ancient Norse religion. Partying with Odin in the meadhalls of Valhalla upon death would just be awesome.

Christianity, at least the newer parts of t he bible.

Jesus was all right, I suppose, if he existed.

But not the Christianity these nutjobs want, though.

I change my vote to this.

We do have a need for many gods, after all, since one is not [supposedly] doing it.

The implications for present day society would be interesting, to say the least, given that Zeus was basically a pederast. :lol:

I don't know if it counts as a religion, but Buddhism. It seems to be the most tolerant of the religions, and plus I like how you don't get to heaven for just being faithful, you get there through being morally good and through helping others, and even then it takes a few lives to get there.

No religion is nearly as superficial as that.

"Karma" is very much real, but it's not what most people thing of. It is, simply put, the very natural rule of cause and effect.

It's really crazy how so many people know absolutely nothing about Buddhism. - Buddhism isn't tolerant, at least in how it is implemented by those who practise it. - Buddhism has concepts of "other realms" that have nothing to do with the goal of Buddhist practise (ironically, they are, including the "heavenly realms", seen as inferior to the human realm).

 - Yeah, I've never understood why so many people have this idea of Buddhists being peaceful and tolerant as a matter of rule. It's almost as if they have this notion that Buddhists somehow are not subject to human nature.

- Yup. Making no real pronouncements about deities, what happens after death or any of those other things most religions focus on it then becomes really easy to graft Buddhism onto whatever beliefs and practices you may already hold. Thus Buddhist practice can run the gamut from the seriously religious/superstitious Tibetan forms to the practically atheistic Zen practice.

I'd go with the religion where eating chocolate cake doesn't make you fat, makes you more muscular, and puts you on the road to nirvana if we get to make up our own religions :P
