I need some help making a choice, How do I know which one is the correct choice?

I am thinking about joining a religion, How do I go about choosing the right one? How do I pick the correct one? It's like playing Black Jack by appearance so perhaps someone has a better method. Here is what I have found:

There are about 21 major world religions today.

1. Christianity
2. Islam
3. Secular/Irreligious/Agnostic/Atheist
4. Hinduism
5. Chinese traditional religion
6. Buddhism (see also buddhism by country)
7. Primal indigenous
8. African traditional and diasporic
9. Sikhism
10. Juche
11. Spiritism
12. Judaism
13. Bahá'í Faith
14. Jainism
15. Shinto
16. Cao Dai
17. Zoroastrianism
18. Tenrikyo
19. Neopaganism
20. Unitarian Universalism
21. Rastafari movement

Of these 21, How do I know which one is right?

For the record, I am not seeking I only ask to invite people to think about the argument of religion. What makes one the right religion and another the wrong? Then Ask yourself, why religion at all? Religion is the basis for many wars and arguments through out the test of time.

Figure out what you believe

Figure out what you believe and what most closely matches that. Whether this is a troll post or not, I find the idea of "shopping" for a religion to be rather amusing.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

LOL is this a troll post? It

LOL is this a troll post? It would help if you tell us why you think you want to join a religion? Second write a list of what you think the perfect religion would entail and then find the one that closest fits to your list. Last but not least ask yourself why you want to join a religion and do some hard contemplation on it. Often times it just wanting a sense of belonging to something bigger then yourself and the camaraderie in which case there is any number of organizations you could join and get the same effect without the baggage and emotional brow beating most religions inflict upon you in one way or another.

It's a post about subjective/ objective view points

Some can't grasp this and resort to labeling as did those who said its a " troll" .

But those who contemplate what I have done are sure to appreciate the discussion .


For Freedom!
The World is my country, all mankind is my brethren, to do good is my religion.


Admitted in a post made above to E OR.

Try Gnostic Christianity and Sufi Islam

They both fun and one of the main aspects of Gnostic Christianity is to constantly test your faith against real world experiences and science. I have found no exclusions nor contradictions.

Haha, I sense you're trying

Haha, I sense you're trying to make a subtle point.

Well, I'll make a case for my religion

1) We easily have the best and most elaborate stories.

2) Book thumping and forced conversion are not advocated.

3) Variety of gods for every situation.

4) Saffron terrorism is pretty much unknown and VERY unfashionable.

5) Karma is the central philosophy rather than heaven or hell, which means that you do your duty as you see fit and don't need to worry about the divine bureaucracy judging your every decision.

6) You don't need to pray 5 times a day or go to church on Sundays.

7) The ceremonies inevitably involve great food.

8) If you die, you can come back as lion or bird or insect, keep gaining different perspectives till you decide you know enough or are bored and decide to move on to the eternal stillness of nirvana.

You can get all these benefits by ordering a FREE bottle of holy Ganges water ($10000 for shipping and handling) :-D

But really read the amazing mythology, I studied in a catholic school and the bible stories put you to sleep compared to the Hindu epics which will keep you awake through the night dying to know what happens next.

The correct answer is "yes as well as no"

Zero and infinity, after all, are the same number.

Now, has anyone seen that dead-and-alive cat anywhere?

Last anyone saw,

Schrodinger took him and said something about an experiment!

Found him

He's in that box over there!
