    I did change mine because at 15 I didn't think anyone had the right path.  So when I found what I believed to be the truth, I switched.

        my religion does not need changing because it changes for the better as I grow in my faith.

        My religion is called truth and life and it is moulding me unto perfection.

    religion is the way of life,
    religion can't saved us, only through  the Lord Jesus Christ if you believe Him.
                 cause we had a volition to accept  or reject Him. the bible says " For God so Loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting Life".

    I sometimes say that religion is something we can perhaps do without. What we cannot do without are the basic spiritual qualities.-Dalai Lama

    Since my religion is to not have one, I would change to a religion if one came about that wasn't ridiculous.  Like, if Jesus showed up, and this time on TV, and started performing miracles for a while with everyone watching, skeptics trying to debunk him.  Maybe came to my house for a while too, hung out, did some miracles around the house.  Maybe make my wife's mean cat nice or something. Grow my hair back.  Stuff like that, then yes, I'd buy in and "change" my religion.

                  btw. do u know how muslim men defend the idea of polygamy? It's based on the logic that you only take 4 wives 'if you can do justice to all of them'. And provided each wife consents to it too.
                  Now one asks, which woman in her right mind would 'allow' her husband to marry another woman..and what exactly is meant by 'justice' to each?!

                    This is long (and only an excerpt) but funny and to the point.  It's from Mark Twain's Letters From The Earth - the last half of letter number VIII.  They are letters "from" Satan writing back to Michael and Gabriel after a trip to study humans on Earth.  Mark Knowles will LOVE the whole thing if he hasn't read it before.

                    The law of God, as quite plainly expressed in woman's construction is this: There shall be no limit put upon your intercourse with the other sex sexually, at any time of life.

                    The law of God, as quite plainly expressed in man's construction is this: During your entire life you shall be under inflexible limits and restrictions, sexually.

                    During twenty-three days in every month (in absence of pregnancy) from the time a woman is seven years old till she dies of old age, she is ready for action, and competent. As competent as the candlestick is to receive the candle. Competent every day, competent every night. Also she wants that candle -- yearns for it, longs for it, hankers after it, as commanded by the law of God in her heart.

                    But man is only briefly competent; and only then in the moderate measure applicable to the word in his sex's case. He is competent from the age of sixteen or seventeen thence-forward for thirty-five years. After fifty his performance is of poor quality, the intervals between are wide, and its satisfactions of no great value to either party; whereas his great-grandmother is as good as new. There is nothing the matter with her plant. Her candlestick is as firm as ever, whereas his candle is increasingly softened and weakened by the weather of age, as the years go by, until at last it can no longer stand, and is mournfully laid to rest in the hope of a blessed resurrection which is never to come.

                    By the woman's make, her plant has to be out of service three days in the month, and during a part of her pregnancy. These are times of discomfort, often of suffering. For fair and just compensation she has the high privilege of unlimited adultery all the other days of her life.

                    That is the law of God, as revealed in her make. What becomes of this high privilege? Does she live in free enjoyment of it? No. Nowhere in the whole world. She is robbed of it everywhere. Who does this? Man. Man's statutes -- if the Bible is the Word of God.

                    Now there you have a sample of man's "reasoning powers," as he calls them. He observes certain facts. For instance, that in all his life he never sees the day that he can satisfy one woman; also, that no woman ever sees the day that she can't overwork, and defeat, and put out of commission any ten masculine plants that can be put to bed to her.[**] He puts those strikingly suggestive and luminous facts together, and from them draws this astonishing conclusion: The Creator intended the woman to be restricted to one man.

                    So he concretes that singular conclusion into law, for good and all.

                    And he does it without consulting the woman, although she has a thousand times more at stake in the matter than he has. His procreative competency is limited to an average of a hundred exercises per year for fifty years, hers is good for three thousand a year for that whole time -- and as many years longer as she may live. Thus his life interest in the matter is five thousand refreshments, while hers is a hundred and fifty thousand; yet instead of fairly and honorably leaving the making of the law to the person who has an overwhelming interest at stake in it, this immeasurable hog, who has nothing at stake in it worth considering, makes it himself!

                    You have heretofore found out, by my teachings, that man is a fool; you are now aware that woman is a damned fool.

                    Now if you or any other really intelligent person were arranging the fairness and justices between man and woman, you would give the man one-fiftieth interest in one woman, and the woman a harem. Now wouldn't you? Necessarily. I give you my word, this creature with the decrepit candle has arranged it exactly the other way. Solomon, who was one of the Deity's favorites, had a copulation cabinet composed of seven hundred wives and three hundred concubines. To save his life he could not have kept two of these young creatures satisfactorily refreshed, even if he had had fifteen experts to help him. Necessarily almost the entire thousand had to go hungry years and years on a stretch. Conceive of a man hardhearted enough to look daily upon all that suffering and not be moved to mitigate it. He even wantonly added a sharp pang to that pathetic misery; for he kept within those women's sight, always, stalwart watchmen whose splendid masculine forms made the poor lassies' mouths water but who hadn't anything to solace a candlestick with, these gentry being eunuchs. A eunuch is a person whose candle has been put out. By art.[**]

                    From time to time, as I go along, I will take up a Biblical statute and show you that it always violates a law of God, and then is imported into the lawbooks of the nations, where it continues its violations. But those things will keep; there is no hurry.

                    (Mysterylady 89 reminded me of this a couple of weeks back and I've been having a ball with it.  It was totally wasted on me when I was young.)

    If I find any other religion more truthful that Quran/Islam/Muhammad; I would definitely. That is what we pray may times a day:

    [1:5] Thee alone do we worship and Thee alone do we implore for help.
    [1:6] Guide us in the right path —
    [1:7] The path of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy blessings, those who have not incurred Thy displeasure, and those who have not gone astray.
