    If you had to start your own religion based on other religions, what would yours be?

    I'd go with agnosticism, humanism and buddhism.

    You?

        WryLilt   None of your choice agnosticism, humanism and Buddhism would be consider a solid Religion.

        Many consider new religion to be cults. In the 50s 60s it used to be that 90% the way you were raised from your parents, is the way you are going to live your life. I'm glad times are a changing,

        For example, my Mother and I were raised Christian and my mother became later in life a closet atheist.  I based my life on love and good sense and we both think everyone is God, no religion is require

      well anything which helps human see humans as more important than some one whom they can never see...i get surprised with people ridiculing fellow human being , arguing with fellow human being and as seen often in various parts of world ,even killing fellow human being for sake of something which cannot be proven or seen...

      It would be a blend of Judaism and Christianity, which is what I believe the Bible teaches.  I believe so many Christians discount much of the Old Testament and focus entirely on the New.  They don't realize that it still applies to us today.  There are things that have been fulfilled, that were given as a temporary sign.  Yet, some of the things God required are still in effect.  If you believe Jesus died for your sins, I don't think disobeying (whether by choice or ignorance) will keep you out of heaven, but it may get you there sooner.  There is a reason we were given all those health regulations.

    I think it would have to be a do your own thing, feel what you want religion. Worship service would be like this forum, only everyone would have to post their thoughts politely. No leaders. If any decided to band together we'd have an intervention to help the followers find their way back to their own path.

    Or something like that.

    I would make a new religion based on science and reason. On applying the scientific method of objectivity to life instead of just abstract physical systems.

    Nobody could start a new truthful religion; it is always revealed by the Creator-God.

    I would create the chuchofdontgiveashit for those who just don't give a sh*t! That is distinct from Atheism in that one would need to possess at least a little knowledge to label themselves atheist. We would then try to take over the world.

      The truthful religion is always the same; it is peaceful and loving; only people who don't understand and misuse it make it harmful.

      That ones already alive and kicking. Still you could always formalize things and make a bob or two from book sales, rallies, merchandizing etc. It worked for the Scientology people......

    I would just establish a religion where everyone could do whatever they wanted, as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else.

      That could be just one aspect of the truthful religion.

    I call myself radical Catholic. I would like a mixture of Confucianism (philosophy) and Buddhism.

    If you could start your own religion...

    It will have no utility for the human beings and they will be mislead. It could create chaos in the society; no benefit will accure from such an endeavor.

      Don't call it a Religion, just call it good sense way of thinking and living
