    The fact that religious debates are never resolved more or less proves that it is very difficult to change someone's religious beliefs.

    If you truly believe that your religion really is the truth - then you would find it very difficult to change - you couldn't just do it if someone asked you nicely. You'd have to be given proof that your religion was false and the other religion was correct.
    But if you do, as many people do, only pay lip-service to a religion - if you go to religious services once a week only to sooth your conscience - then it is very easy to jump religions - after all - what difference has one religion to another if you don't really believe them?

    I've never understood this. Isn't abandoning your chosen God for another one of the worst religious offenses you can commit?

    Changing to Islam is probably has the biggest impact on yourself and surroundings since it's rules and conducts are very rigid. Changing to other religions like Christianity are easier and more ''relaxed''

    If you see in any country like we take example of Saudi Arabia.There is research shows that only less than 300 hundred people change their religion annually.It shows that it is very rare for someone to change religion.we if we see in London how many people try to understand other religion than their own.very few but i am worry bcoz why every religion is focusing on that you should change religion.I think its unfair with the people because people are the slaves of the societies they can not change religion in an existing environment.Because people will laugh at them who change religion and hate them.

    Not really. Judaism is more "rigid" than Islam; for example, you have to wait several hours to eat meat after you've eaten dairy and vice versa, and you need to have separate cutlery for each.
    I'd say Christianity isn't THAT much more relaxed than Islam. Yes, Christians don't have to pray 5 times a day, but a majority of the rules are similar to Islam; for example, Christians give something up for lent for a certain amount of days, Muslims fast for 30 days, Christians can't eat pork or get drunk, Muslims can't eat pork either but they can't drink any alcohol at all.

    There is flexibility in this. See: Ireland.

    That's not always true. Often changing away from Islam, to say Christianity, or Judaism, or whatever - can have a massive effect on your life. I have friends who were kicked out of their families when they converted to Christianity from Islam.
    However it's probably true that changing to Islam as opposed to the others has the biggest effect for a person in a developed country - because disowning your children because of their religious views would not be looked on too kindly in this part of the world.

    No. 34000 Americans converted to Islam following the events of 9/11.
