So the question is asked: What is the biggest system of belief in this world?
I wonder if anyone will get this. Let's see who is the best detective. Let's see who can see what is in plain sight. Let's see who needs glasses 8D. The winner will get a cookie and a digital pat on the back. Also, some great insight!

Is it Christianity?
Is it Islam?
Is it Hinduism?
Is it Judaism?
Is it Animism?
Is it Buddhism?
Is it money?

There's obviously more options, but let's see who can figure it out. If you answer the question, please provide some justification. If someone answers correctly, I will announce it. If not, I will provide the answer when everyone starts complaining.

This is a fun exercise, but serious at the same time. It's complex, but simple at the same time. Jimmies will be rustled, as in all threads in this forum, but remember, this is for fun!

OOOO I just realized this, my signature is a great hint!!!!

Unless this is a trick question, I'm gonna go with Christianity, based on the following data"

A Table of the World's Major Religions

If it is a trick question, then my answer is the belief in a higher power. (refer to the same link above)

GRRR, for some reason, the edit to my second post isn't showing.

Well, if it ain't money (money is close because the world is ruled by a fiat system), religion, or belief in a higher power, what could it be?

Maybe it could be right under your nose?

And someone, please don't say the matrix.

I just gave great hints right there.

OK, belief in each other?

It is not Judaism they are only in the millions.

It is not money, money is an object not a belief.

There are more Christians then Hindu's

There are more Christians than Muslims

There are more Christians than Buddhists.

I would think that Animism comes closest to Christianity in numbers and even tops it by a huge margin. Many people from every religion believe that things other than humans have a life and a soul. We talk to our plants, we say excuse me when we bump into trees or bushes while hiking. Many humans believe earth is alive and that it has wants and needs, and not just earth but the whole world outside of it.

Animism for sure.

Nope, but here's another hint:

Everything you guys mentioned is based on this.

You guys are going to hate me and try to say I'm wrong after I give the answer. But I'm having loads of fun right now
So much so that moles of molecules aren't being converted to grams and what not

Hmmm...belief in the power of human spirit?

Is this going to be like the scene in Willow where the sorcerer asks him to pick which finger has the power and no one got the answer because the power is in you? Does this have something to do with the way we view and believe in ourselves?

Seriously though I study religions and I took the Religions of The World Class last semester, i'm pretty sure I am right.

Animism has everything beat....that is everything that you have provided in sight as an option in your op anyhow.

I'm not the riddler.....give me the answer that you think is the correct one and I will tell you if you are right or not, lol.

Or the words coming out of my lips?
Is it speech?
