I think it was on T/A that I read someone's response to a Christian who was rationalizing his religion. The dissenter pointed out that even among the other religions, Christianity is one of the least plausible, with "X" religion (I don't remember; something I had never heard of) being the most plausible.
I think that's an interesting thing to think about. Which religion do you think is the most plausible?
NOTE: Perhaps I should word it this way: which religion is the least preposterous? If I asked you to rank the religions (atheism is not a religion) by most plausible to least plausible, you would rank "1. X, 2. Y, 3. Z" and so on. You would not say "none of the above" because I'm not asking "which religion is plausible." I think we can all agree that none of the religions are plausible (at least not plausible enough to accept because, well, most of us here on Think Atheists are atheists :D)
Weird - a lot of my post was lost when I posted it yesterday. Here's the rest of what I was going to say (if I can remember it!)...
But, since you asked what religion is "most plausible"/"least preposterous", I'll have to say Deism. Deists basically operate on the "grand watchmaker" theory - that some infinite superbeing (i.e. the "Supreme Architect"), outside the realms of space and time, created the building blocks of the universe, and set it in motion - and then left it alone, creating a Clockwork Universe. This being has no more input into the workings of this reality. So, basically everything is the same as an atheist - except Deists believe a) there actually was/is some super being, and b) they get to have an explanation of how the Big Bang got set up and started - even if it is a "then magic happened here" type of explanation.
At least they was the first to answer the call of the question.
If Taoism is not a religion, then logically there must be followers who are also Jewish, Catholic, Protestant, Muslim, etc.
Is Taoism similar to joining a bowling league?
