We also believe only 144,000 go to heaven to serve Jehovah, and there is no such place as hell.

Jehovah`s Witnesses is a type of christianity. They shun all holidays. They have to spread the good news of Jehovah`s Kingdom. I am one of Jehovah`s Witnesses, we have a lot of meetings at our kingdom hall.

As a mormon I dont think that we are the only ones going to heaven to dwell with christ, there are really good people who arent LDS and there are LDS members who arent so good of people. And any mormon who thinks that everyone else isnt going to hell is wrong. That is doctrine some people are just to close minded to really awknowledge that.

Satanists are just christians with a theological grudge. Therefore, all satanists are christians, and therefore satanism is a religion. But does that make chrisians happy satanists?

So many religions? Speaking as a beliver that all religion is the root of all evil (see history) I ask few choice questions? Which one is right? How are all the rest wrong? How come there has been many many religions through out history that have died out? (Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece or the Myans for example).Why does God or Gods allow this? Why do so many innocent people suffer?
Its all bull..Its like telling your kids about Santa to get them to behave..just on a bigger scale...

White is a lack of colour in artistic terms and in common sense terms, yet it is the `colour` you see when the waves are not confined to one wavelength and the whole spectrum is visible, therefore your both right? Black is lack of light... but is it lack of colour?

First of all I have to say:
"go atheism!!!!! screw god, he doesnt exist"
How can one screw that which does not exsist?
Second, I agree that athiest and agnostic are different, and that they are lack of religion, so instead of calling them religions, I prefer to call them belief systems. But really, who cares what they`re called?
And to whoever stupidly said that satanism, wiccan, and paganism are cults, shut your ass up. You don`t know a damn thing about any of those religions than what your mommy pushed into your face while you were growing up. Satanism didn`t even start by worshiping satan.

no, Atheism isnt a religion. if you dont have a religion, you are an Atheist. if you dont belive in some higher power you dont have a religion and are an Atheist.
either way, you did a good job making a fool out of yourself; the people saying Atheism is a religion arent Christians.
zzzchubby, do you believe in evolution and in that absence of higher powers because "scientists" told you? do you belive we went to the moon in 1969? with the power they have, scientists can tell us anything and people will belive them. the truth is unless you experience (see/hear/feel) it yourself, you have no way of knowing if its true or not.

and satanics today are much different than a long time ago.
most really aren`t that crazy, they are or were people that opposed the catholic church, the church, in an attempt to stop them, spread disguisting rumours about them.
idiots today practise those rumours because they think that`s what it is to be satanic/.

Learn how to spell Christian for one, then calm your ass down, Atheism is like the color white, which is a lack of color entirely, yet still a color.

I find it curious that they lumped the Atheists and the Agnostics together. I was Agnostic when I was younger, but as time went by I slowly began to change my views and I now consider myself an Atheist.

I respect that other people have faith in the authenticity of the bible, but I think it`s some ancient novel. Fiction. Written to amuse rich lords who have nothing better to do then sit around on their big thrones. In my opinion, Christians have been sucked into a big misunderstanding. YEAH!!!

You know what? Music is my religion. After Atheism.

There`s no point in making a site like this that lists alll the religions.
Because you`re going to get a bunch of people`s religions who are not on there and then you`ll also get people who`s religions were wrongly described.
Oh and by the way Mormons, Jehovahs Witnesses, and Christians are VERY different. There are many differen`t types of Christians but that would be different denominations such as Presbytarian, Baptist... etc.
Not like anyone will read this...

All religions are cults. The word just has a bad spin on it nowadays.

Just like the pentagram being a symbol of evil to christians (due to ancient christian propoganda), while it`s a symbol of worship to Pagans. It`s just a negative widespread view.

Ajikan, you always say religion is bad, but you never say why. whats wrong with religion? are you too lazy? dont want someone to be more powerful than you? dont want to follow rules? im thinking all of the above. you may just say you dont belive it, but untill you disprove all religions, theres no intelligent way to say all religions are lies.
"Religion is the leading cause of stupidity."
well that may be true, but only because those who disagree with a particular religion act stupid about it.
"Atheism is a religion, misscutieroo. A religion is a mixture of what you believe in, as well as your practices, not in what god you believe in, and who you worship."
according to dictionary.com,
re·li·gion-
1. Belief in and reverence for a supernatural power or powers regarded as creator and governor of the universe.
athiesm is NOT a religion, it is a belief. its the absence of a religion.

I agree with littleoracle and GWall1...Atheists are defined has have no religion (A meaning without and theos - or somethign like that, I don`t quite remember the root word - meaning religion). Agnostics simply do not feel strongly one way or the other, they sit on the proverbial fence. You`d be as correct lumping agnostics into a general theistic group or cult group as you would lumping them with atheists.

I also don`t think you should be lumping all forms of Christianity together. There are differences between some sects that amount to the same as a different religion.

Atheism is a religion, misscutieroo. A religion is a mixture of what you believe in, as well as your practices, not in what god you believe in, and who you worship. I`m not trying to be mean here, but I just needed to say that.
Also, the as people have said before, Santanism and Wiccan need to be added, as well as Rastafariasm, and some others. All around, a good chart, though. There might be some errors that I did not recognize, as other people have posted.
"You kno what i think im going to make my own religion... where u belive in evolution, andas the yevolved when Animals died their souls became trapped on earth and they move aroubnd going to a new thing like being born.. thus concluding in rebirth, evolution, and no god"

EXACTLY! I am an agnostic, not an atheist. Atheists believe no higher power exists, while agnostics either believe in a higher power, but not in a religion, or else they believe it is impossible to know whether there is a supreme being or not... this page has a lot of errors

Then looking at it that way, Buddhist`s shouldn`t be on there, as they don`t really believe in a god.

Religions and cults are pretty much the same, it just depends on how popular it gets.

Their description of the deities of Christianity is wrong. It says that Christians think there is "one God who is a Trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit," which was not a teaching of the Christian religion by Jesus. It was made up by the Catholic Church some hundred years later, and accordingly, not all Christians share that belief.

First of all, Paganism should be listed, since Confucianism is...and Confucianism is more of a philosophy.

Also, they never mentioned my religion (which is also more of a philosophy) Unitarian Universalism.

Therefore, both religions should be added since Confucianism is more of a philosophy. It doesn`t matter if they worship a non god figure or not because it can still be considered a religion.

Also, there are many religions on there that are w/o a god or text (like a bible).

I think whoever wrote this should of put the religions in order to people who worship...because they missed many major ones (like mine).

Besides the many idealogical splits within the various religions listed, it did not include Ayyavazhi, Jainism, Egyptian religion, African religion, Aztec religion, Wicca, or Mysticism to name a few.
Also, it should be noted that Atheism and Agnosticism are not religions, but rather the lack thereof.

Yeah, us Christians and Mormons and Jehovah`s witnesses don`t agree upon some key issues, such as Jesus and his teachings, and so that makes us all different religions.

I wonder if Christian science followers will go to heaven in a CHristian sense? hmm...
