True, but it's literally impossible to hate Buddhists.

True. You can be annoyed with them for taking a lovely idea and ruining it with myths though.

I know some Pastafarians (most notably, the guy who won the right to wear a colander on his head on his drivers' licence and passport picture. Nico is a great and funny guy, but he's got the ego the size of the universe) and they're pretty crazy.

But Scientology is crazier, simply because it's also more dangerous.

Surprised that Islam has more votes than Christianity. Both believe in the same god, but while Muslims believe god spoke to us through a crazy epileptic guy, Christians believe god had a son who simultaneously was god, who was born of a virgin, died and came back to life and then ascended into heaven. Seriously, that's really crazy.

Scientism would be my choice, but you forgot Rahelianism. And the Church of Maradona.

And you then have Hare Krishna.

Pastafarianism? Mighty tagliatelle?

The Hare Krishna movement is essentially an offshoot of Hinduism, as is Buddhism- the three are interrelated, and referred to as the Vedic religions, as Judaism, Christianity and islam are all related, and referred to as the Abrahamic religions. You have to be born a Hindu, but anyone of any race can be a Buddhist or follow the Hare Krishna movement- all three use various Vedic texts interchangably, like the Baghavad Ghita, Ramayana, Rig Veda or Dammapaddha.

For me, the most batshit insane one is Scientology, as it's a dangerous cult that uses mind-control, and was founded by a paranoid loon who made a bet that he could start a religion, and promptly nicked a lot of Aleister Crowley's ceremonial magic ideas while he was illicitly humping the wife of one of Crowley's lodge masters. And they actively hunt down people who leave the sect, and make life generally miserable for anyone who thinks of leaving.

Pastafarianism and the flying spaghetti monster is just some clever-arsed construction by vocal atheists, who think the ridiculousness of the idea is a perfect pisstake on what they perceive as the ridiculousness of other established religions. it's not silly as such, and it isn't really a religion either- just ever so slightly smart-arsed and pathetic.

Scientology reminds me of the Masonic Cult. It's such a weird thing, full of secrecy... and mafia like as well.

And although I say Scientology, I voted Mormons...crazy one. No alcohol, no octopus, no coffee, and the Elder Pack knocking on your door trying to get you into it. I musy say that the Mormons do learn the local languages fast.

They also believe when Jesus comes back, he will show up in 2 places. I think one is Jerusalem but the other is for sure, Missouri. :lol: :lol: :lol:

The alternative was to sit back and let intelligent design be taught in schools. I guess these guys care about what their kids are taught.
