Which religion would you like to be true?

Which religion would you like to be true?
So let's say you could pick a religion to be true. With the nature of the deity, requirements, benefits and afterlife etc.

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 Old Gods" from Game of Thrones. They're about as deistic as it gets.
In every country and every age, the priest had been hostile to Liberty.

I agree. The Old Gods from Game of Thrones would be good because they tend to leave people alone.

Shinto would be interesting.. Who doesn't want a creature with giant, magical testicles to be real?


Quote:Who’s got big balls? Tanuki have big balls! Anyone who has seen Studio Ghibli’s Pom Poko (Heisei Tanuki Gassen Pom Poko) knows that tanukis’ nut sacks are capable of amazing magical feats—from being stretched out into giant tarpaulins to transforming into magical treasure ships. And the Japanese people aren’t shy about their love for tanukis’ giant balls; images of well-endowed tanuki can be seen all over Japan, from ubiquitous statues in from of shops and restaurants to bank commercials to anime to … pretty much anything.

Indian beliefs of reincarnation. It sounds better than spending my life worshiping someone just so I can go to an afterlife where I get to worship him for the rest of eternity. I just wish I could remember past lives. Self enlightenment, and an afterlife that is based on deeds instead of words sounds more appealing.

Reincarnation with karma, or just like, random reincarnation? Because the whole karma thing can get sinister really quick, like the people suffering now deserve it because in a previous life they were asses.

Lord Hades please

The Congregation of Jehovah's Presbytery of Zion

(also known as the Conjespresites)

(also known as the Baneemyites)

(they were Mormon Communists, does it get any better ?)
 The granting of a pardon is an imputation of guilt, and the acceptance a confession of it.

Yeah, Dionysus was great. I mean, god of wine and festivals? You'd have to be a prude among prudes to hate that.

The early, pre-monotheistic, goddess religion of the people prior to, around, and slightly after the Minoan period, a simpler time before religion truly became corrupted by the evils of patriarchy.
