RE: Which religion would you like to be true?
What? None. The idea of a capricious omnipotent being is scary as fuck.

RE: Which religion would you like to be true?
Hmmm...

Dinoysus looks tempting and I can see merits in the Greek beliefs, though it does bring to mind Pratchett's Oh-god of hangovers...

Viking Valhalla? Don't you have to die in battle to get in there?

Think I'd join my ancestors in Avalon...

RE: Which religion would you like to be true?
I don't know if this counts, but I just started a new religion where I'm god. That would be awesome if it was true.

I'd sort this shit out.

I don't want to be a god. I just want to be spoiled. Being spoiled carries fewer responsibilities.

Which one would you go for?

I'm quite liking the norse myself. Valhalla seems an excellent afterlife, and I believe the norse God's require relatively little by way of obescence.

You can pick religions found in fiction, but not ones you've made up yourself.

The roman state religion 1-3rd century AD. I can be a god.

Are there any which involve a zombie apocalypse? Only I've been laying in supplies for that for years now...
