What's your favorite religion?

Didn't Buddha say there were no gods?
Because it's not based on worshipping a god (or gods), but rather following a path of spiritual development leading to insight into the true nature of reality, some people do not see it as a religion in the "normal", Western sense.
However if you simply type in Buddhism into google, the first thing it pulls up is a National Geographic page, and there it classifies it as a religion (one of the world's largest, in fact.) So I guess it really depends on who you ask if they see it as a religion or not.
Edit to say:
While Buddhists do not believe in any kind of god, there are deities that can help or hinder people who are on their path to enlightenment. If you look at the deities part, to some people, Paganism is the same way. Like me, I don't call my beliefs a "religion" because I don't outright worship a single god or multiple gods, but rather I believe in spiritual beings that can help guide me (in christian terms: a guardian angel) in my time of need. Again, it just depends on who you ask.
Which one is the one where everyone leaves each other the fuck alone, and let's them go about their life in their own way?
I forget the name, but that one.
I like that one too
The order of the sith
Satanism. I love how they challenge the separation of church and state and highlight the absurdity of it all. Also, the statue of Baphomet is wickedly awesome.
Agreed, however even Satanism is hypocritical in there attack and defense of political issues just as much as the Christians.
Of all the religions that uses the t as their symbol, you had to choose one that's known for diddling kids, huh?
Well I happen to love my religion despite what some nasty people have done unfortunately. that doesn't mean I'm going to abandon My religion as I'm sure other people wouldn't Either.
I kinda like Judaism, couldn't tell you why I'm not religious
שנה טובה ומתוקה!
I am not Jewish, it is just the Jewish new year today (technically yesterday)
Is that really a religion?
No it isn't.
While the idea of it isn't many that seem to identity as such have a religious like zealotry that is driven by secular principles and doctrines that they view as beyond contestation.
That's not why it's not a religion. We don't qualify lack of something as part of something. For instance, people who have never been to Reddit are not "non-posting Redditors". They're not Redditors at all.
>That's not why it's not a religion.
It's not a religion because they don't believe in any of the trappings god, afterlife, along other such nonsense.
However you don't need a higher power to be a zealot or act on dogmatic teachings.
They're always the most charitable and vocal in doing good in the communities I've lived in and of the Sikh's I've met They're usually lovely people. That to me says alot about the teachings and ethics of their religion.
The one that's actually right.
Heavens gate! Wish I could have been apart of it. Especially at the end.
