    The Swedish branch of Evangelical-Lutheran Christianity as it is describe in the Augsburg Confession and ratified in the Synod of Uppsala in 1593.

    All who believe otherwise will rot in hell. :rolleyes:

    I would like to say Islam simply because The Quran is a guide for mankind as to how to live their lives. It contains aspects which are applicable to social, political, economic, or military actions and it tells us how to go about achieving a better life.

    EDIT: If you are going to give me a bright red gem (not that I mind, obviously), then at least have the decency to tell me why.
    OK I will tell you why, excecuting people, esspecially for stupid things like leaving Islam is not in any way applicable to any society I would like to be a part of.

    Buddhism is more of a Philosophy than a religion and Buddhists do not believe in a deity. 'Buddha' is not a God. I'm not religious but if get spiritual on my death bed I'd probably lean towards some form of Buddhism.
    It is one of the worlds 6 major world religions Only it is not based on assumption or faith, simply on doing good and avoiding suffering.

    It is the only one that can also be proven to an extent. If you avoid greed, hate and ignorance then you will not suffer and if you do not suffer you will be happy

    I'd imagine it's because of your claim that Islam is the most likely religion to be true because aspects of the Qur'an are most applicable to real life. I could make up a book on the spot with loads of advice to people on how to live their lives in every way, and then make up a creation story and a revelation story and ship it as a holy book.
    But would anyone believe you? That's the difference. Islam has 1.5-2 billion followers attesting to this.

    Do you see that the Qur'an's instructions aren't evidence for it being true? That's probably why people have negged you.
    If one were to view they systems explained in Islam in it's entirety, then one would conclude that those systems actually work and make people's lives better.

    Treason is not punishable by death/life sentences (basically the same thing) in some of the more "enlightened countries" like the UK/USA/Europe etc?

    Anything that talks about good/bad, morality or tells you how to live your life is wrong.

    If there is, or is not a God (i believe there is) his definition is that he conttains all perfections and is the origin of everything so........ he is perfect goodness, he is perfetly bad, perfectly stupid, perfetly smart.

    You have to remember good/bad are relative terms they are not objective...yet religions try to persuade you that they are objective and try to make you follow their "right" way.

    So you ask then what should i follow?????????
    Well the only thing you can trust is yourself... your intuition. You cannot trust the world around you and the people in it... as quantum physics teaches us the world as it i is mearly an illusion, so you should do what you beleive is truly best for you and what makes you happy.

    If stealing of a poor person really really makes you happy and not just superficially happy go do it

    If being gay makes you intuitionaly happy and not just superficially happy do it

    Remeber the only thing you can do is be open to ideas to see what makes you happy, e.g. if a person encloses themselves from the world and beleives the only happy marriage is one with a man and woman... and never know about a gay marriage in whuich they could be happier that would stop them developing a happier conciousness..


    So in answer to your question.....
    In my opinion your religion should be yourself
    It should be about three things:

    1)true happiness for yourself
    2)open mindedness
    3)learning/evolving your consciousness


    hope this helps

    David Mitchell thinks it's Islam on a recent video I've seen, and I agree with him.

    Any eastern religion since they actually promote knowledge, originality, equality, peace and most importantly discovering your Self by your own path whether it be yoga, meditation, prayer etc. No going on the streets to preach that unbelievers will be cast into eternal hell unless they convert to their religion.

    I've always believed that no true religion can be correct as religion is a human invention. The universe does not care for us, we are all but a collection of cells on a rock orbiting a star in a galaxy somewhere in an infinitely expanding universe and that is an undeniable fact, how can a mere book written by some shepherds a few thousand years ago hold all the answers? It cannot. I'm pretty firm in my beliefs as an atheist, but I've always thought that if there is a god, a benevolent all powerful being looking down on us, he would not care for such specific details that are given to us by major world religions, god does not care if you eat pork or adulterate these are the laws of mortals; if god did care about these things we would live in a geocentric universe.

    They would believe me if I went back to the middle-east in 400CE.

    Once again, I'll refer you back to my previous argument of "just because some of the things work; doesn't mean it's true." There's plenty stuff that's morally wrong and incorrect as well as genuinely good advice. One of my favourites is actually the Prophet's instructions that you should stay away from a woman while she's on her period.

    It makes people's lives better when you ignore most of the instructions (same with many religions), in it's entirety; all we have to do is look at Saudi Arabia to see where that leads us.

    what do you believe in anyways (if you do have a religion).
    If you look at what I was replying to I was refuting that the Qu'ran was applicable to society. I was in no way suggesting that muslims are terrorists or even agree with these parts of the Qu'ran, but they just show that it is not applicable today.

    I am an athiest.

    I am fraid the very question answers its self. None, why, well the list contains more than one entry. **** It is true that some might say we cannot know the mind of god and he may have created diverse communities of those who deny him/her/it in order to carry out his/her/it's master plan, which leaves the slight problem of which god is it whose mind we cannot know and is architecting this game ? Multiple candidates are put forward,
    GOTO ****

    If I was placing a bet I would go for the "Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster" because it is not on the list, and whilst it might not win it surely cannot lose, hence my money is safe with a small chance of winning which strikes me as a good deal.

    LOL at all the Muslims saying Islam.

    I was about to facepalm but then I remembered that clay is prone to shattering and I don't want to break my face and hand.

    So I stopped just in time...Masha'Allah for that!
