Pick a religion
Hypothetically, for all you atheists and agnostics out there, if you had to pick a religion, what would it be?

(Let's not get all serious now, this is supposed to be a bit of fun)

For me it would have to be Rastafarian. Not that I know anything about it but the Bad Brains are f*cking awsome!






Are there any Rastafarian's on this forum? I haven't run across any yet but then I haven't been here that long.

He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how. - Nietzsche

RE: Pick a religion
Probably Buddhism.

I'm never met a pushy Buddhist who I felt was judging me for not being a Buddhist.
It's a non-theistic religion.
I like the teachings of Buddha.

No single step in the search for enlightenment should ever be considered sacred; only the search should.

Hmmm. If I weren't the ungodly heathen that I am, Baha'i would win. Buddhism takes place. Taoism barely for show.

RE: Pick a religion
The Church of Baseball has always held a special place in my heart...

Quote:"I believe in the Church of Baseball. I've tried all the major religions and most of the minor ones. I've worshipped Buddha, Allah, Brahma, Vishnu, Siva, trees, mushrooms and Isadora Duncan. I know things. For instance, there are 108 beads in a Catholic rosary and there are 108 stitches in a baseball. When I heard that I gave Jesus a chance. But it just didn't work out between us. The Lord laid too much guilt on me. I prefer metaphysics to theology. You see, there's no guilt in baseball and it's never boring ... which make it like sex. There's never been a ballplayer slept with me who didn't have the best year of his career. Making love is like hitting a baseball: you gotta relax and concentrate. Besides I'd never sleep with a player hitting under .250 ... not unless he had a lot of RBI's and was a great glove up the middle. You see, there's a certain amount of life wisdom I give these boys. I can expand their minds. Sometimes when I've got a ballplayer alone, I'll just read Emily Dickinson or Walt Whitman to him, and the guys are so sweet, they always stay and listen. 'Course a guy'll listen to anything if he thinks it's foreplay. I make them feel confident and they make me feel safe and pretty. 'Course, what I give them lasts a lifetime, what they give me lasts 142 games. Sometimes it seems like a bad trade. But bad trades are part of baseball - now who can forget Frank Robinson for Milt Pappas, for God's sake? It's a long season and you gotta trust. I've tried 'em all, I really have, and the only church that truly feeds the soul is the Church of Baseball." - Annie Savoy

If we're including the more tongue-in-cheek religions, hell, I'm already a Googlist and a Pastafarian.

Nah, I'm far too egotistical to want to accept that my consciousness doesn't really exist and I've been decieved into concieving of my Self.
