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)

You can meditate (as I do) without being Buddhist.
True. Except for the mystical qualities given to Buddha i still think Buddhism, in most of its forms, is the most plausible and would be the religion I would choose if I had to.
Mystical qualities are nonsense. That by itself shows that it is in the direct nature of superstitions. Meditation has health benefits as does prayer. Superstitions are not needed, cannot be explained, and are illogical.
batshot crazy LAWL...but true

@ Brian - I enjoyed the video; I mean test lol. Boy, do I know some people who are batshit crazy lol, but they *seem* to get along in life just fine.

 

I guess they all get together and support each other and are protected by laws which allow them to pass the batshit craziness on to their children. The problem is, I keep seeing these certain political ads on my FB which pop up because some of these people are FB friends. Therefore, I perceive this group of batship crazy people have some say in passing or not passing some laws.

 

Therefore, I think it would be prudent for me to try to persuade them to take this test in an attempt to get them to see... never mind.

That was great!

I think Edward Current (blog youtube), Keith Lowell Jensen (blog youtube), and Sam Singleton - Atheist Evangelist (website youtube) are the top atheist comedians/humorists out there today.

Thanks for sharing!

Also Pat Condell. Love that man! : )
Damn cool, I like it! thanks for sharing.
Have you guys met Gary the invisible microscopic plaid rocket elephant?
Funny how some think that there is only the god of the desert (religion) out here on planet Earth?! I see no "better" plausible religion, but as far as I am concerned, I like the ones that are NOT trying to take over the world....hehe
The only belief that is around I like is Buddhism just because my favorite saying comes from it..

"If you see yourself in others do no harm"
If I believed that any religion was plausible, I probably wouldn't be an atheist. But there are certain aspects of Buddhism that I do like.
