Yeah,hey hi,last summer I still remember I read a bunch of NWO conspiracies here haha ,but now I shift my focus towards religion. Honestly, this religion matter have bug me lately ,after some research, currently I think either Islam,Gnosticism or Buddhism are the most probable "real" religion(hopefully there are easier alternatives), my worry is Islam .

Hey welcome welcome to the sea of knowledge



"I think either Islam,Gnosticism or Buddhism are the most probable "real" "


Outta all of them , i would have to agree. these three are most probable . vs the other ones we see humans tinker with today.

Btw,what are flags??? curious .

Islam: Mathematical miracles or miracle like things inside the Qur'an ,Qur'an uncorrupted (afaik) , lots of miracles related to them (whether are they "real" depends on the person who views it) ,extremely unlikely to be created by men ,Porphet Muhammad couldn't have written the Qur'an , the islamic G-d challenges all of us to create a book that can rival Qur'an,I got a feeling none of us could do it ..................at least not now.

Gnosticism : Radical viewpoint and something like the opposite of Judaism ??? I am surprised by the lack of correlation of this religion and Islam ,coz they seem to be at the opposite end of spectrum , out of these 3,I am most unknowledgeable about this religion.

Buddhism: Not based on G-d afaik. Know about it since young ,greatly based on logic and common sense ,Buddha even says that don;t believe what that is said to you unless you believe in it even if it is said by himself is kinda cool. But I DON;T really believe in sects that practise idolatry (no offense), Buddha said don't worship him iirc.(Yeah,I know some of them don't exactly "pray" to Sakyamuni Buddha ,just my opinion)

Sorry,if I stated anything wrong here,intentionally or accidentally.

Hi there and welcome


I think it is a good that you research them before reaching any conclusions, I also do this


I have not settled on a 'belief'...yet., maybe never will. I am certain though that my survival does not depend on it.


Have fun on the board


Namaste

Welcome to ATS. If I am anything at the moment I think The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (Pastafarianism) would probably be the closest.

In the Name of the Pasta, and of the Sauce, and of the Holy Meatballs...

Accept His Noodly Magnificence into your heart, into your soul, and ye shall forever be free. R'Amen

Have an enlightening time here and I hope to see you around.

hello and welcome.
Buddhism is not a religion.
it is a path to enlightenment.
they dont have gods. but they do believe in them.
I would recommend there meditation.
so many types of Buddhism !

DONT have anything to do with the
New Kadampa Tradition.
they are a Cult and take all your money.

Well,it depends on what is the definition for religion imo, for example isn;t in Pure Land Buddhism they sort of chant amitabha which is some sort of uhm ......veneration?? Ya I know they don;t have gods as in those that are suppose to be worshipped (but instead most of buddhists believe in the existence of deva if I am not mistaken ),what I mean is the "veneration" (not sure if its the right word ) of bodhisattvas or other buddhas.

Welcome Quantum Seeker

I think all the religions are "real", the question is : who has the truth?

We won't know the truth, until we die, unfortunately. Hopefully there's something after this.

It's the journey of seeking that's important
