None of them. All religions seek to control people and all religions are a scourge on humanity.

Please try to still answer the questions/poll.

Just pretend that YOU have to pick one. There should be at least one religion that you *feel* is overall or slightly better than the other.

None. None. None. This is sort of like asking a Christian which Hell they'd prefer to go to - The Christian Hell, the Muslim Hell, or whatever Hell you can think of. I don't admire any religion. I don't hate them either but I don't admire them. And if I don't admire or like any of them - how could I choose which one I'd possibly join? If I'm forced to pick one, I might as well write the names of all the different ones on pieces of paper, stick them in a hat, and pick one at random.

Muhammed, Jesus... it's all the same to me.

I'm not trying to be argumentative - but this is honestly how I feel.

Why do you think that? Why do you think we should feel that one is slightly better?

Ahh common people! Just pretend that you were FORCED to convert or believe in any of them, which one would you?

Which one has better holidays/culture?

You mean pretend we are in Nazi Germany and someone has a gun to our heads?

Why the poll?

I guess since the Jews have never used force to convert anyone or threatened anyone with death - maybe I'd choose them. But honestly, I don't believe in God - so what difference would it make? How can you convert to any God-fearing religion if you don't believe in God?

Oh - and I've never heard of anyone joining a religion because they had better holidays.

Perhaps a better question would have been:

If you have to live near a Theist, which would you prefer to live near?

1. A Jew
2. A Christian
3, A Muslim

Christianity is such a peaceful and wonderful religion. Yes, some people might ruined the religion, but that's not what the religion is about. Too bad most people never read the bible, watched Jesus movies and judge the religion bad without knowing really anything about it. Being Christian is something that 2.3 billion people worldwide should be PROUD of.

Christmas/Easter/Valentines etc. are fun holidays!
Well, between these two, I'd pick the Muslim! The again, we wouldn't get to celebrate Valentine's Day...
