If you could have been born into another religion or worldview, which do you think would have been an interesting alternative?<br><br>
This isn't to say, which do you want to convert to now or learn more about now, rather which do you think - for whatever reason - would you have liked to have been raised in.

Whatever as long as there is a living teacher/master/prophet/whatever.<br><br>
After thousands and hundreds of years their teachings don't have so much in common with what their religion preach.

As much as I despise Christianity and having that **** rammed down my throat as a kid growing up, I think it helped me to become an atheist. It's possible, had I been raised an atheist, that I would have rebelled and joined some religious cult (all religions are cults, really), or something.

Jew. It's a religion and an ethnicity! I like their holidays too, and I've always liked the idea of sitting Shiva.<br><br>
But I'd probably still become an atheist. Just a Jewish atheist... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thinking.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":think:"><br><br>
This is a weird thread.

I don't need to wish. I pressed down, R, up, L, Y, and then B, and then pressed start to when I selected atheism on the religion selection screen this time around. Now I'm a Space Wiccan. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/blank.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":|">

I did the lp, lp, forward, lk, hp and now I'm a Weightlifter.<br><br>
Also, secular jewism isn't a religion anyway.

Atheist jedi, because if I didn't believe in midi-chlorians but was still all badass then I'd assume it was because I was just better than everyone else.

I am now (but was NOT at the time) happy to have been raised by Christian parents.<br><br>
For those who's minds work best at the level of people and events it is a good vehicle for teaching basic moralities.<br><br>
For those who's minds are capable of going entirely into the realms of ideas the plethora of contradictions and paradoxes gives one much cause to think.

Interesting. I never thought about it like that. I would still rather have been raised religion free and be allowed to make my own decisions.

Being born into the "Ron Paul is Jesus" religion would have been interesting.
