    Default What's the most logical religion?

    Which religion makes the most logical sense? The one that has the most merit and credibility, and is the most trustworthy because it is the most logical and is purely built on truth. A religion(or philosophical worldview) you would choose to adhere to and follow because of its unshakeable certainty.

    Here is my choice but it's more of a philosophical worldview rather than a religion:

    called Solipsism.

    Scientific Pantheism. All life is interconnected, we all need each other and our biosphere, therefore, every single atom in every single molecule in this universe is holy and deserves respect. Pray however you want, but there is nothing that exists outside of nature or natural law. I define God as the total sum and Cause of Creation, life and light feeding each other, with the natural instinct of love giving it all a basic focus. If you're at peace with yourself, you're at peace with Creation, which includes natural laws governing same. If you want authority, try jumping out of a tenth story window and walking on air. It's impossible to disobey natural Law. Scientific determinism dictates our behavior and we are inheritors of generations of people whose behaviors determine our own. You see, once your physical needs are met, you'll find your spiritual condition in a state of calm. When you're excessively deprived, you'll find your spirit in turmoil. It's all connected.

    That's easy: Buddhism. In its purest original form, Buddhism is eminently logical. The Buddha himself said not to accept any statement on authority, even if he said it, if it did not accord with reason and common sense. Unfortunately, Buddhism has, over the centuries, accreted a lot of mystical claptrap to itself which would have dismayed the Buddha.

    The advaita Vedanta of Hinduism is extremely logical. The founder of this school of Vedantist thought, Shankara, was a brilliant logician, which may explain why later thinkers accused him of being a crypto-Buddhist.

    On the other hand, any religion which requires one to accept nonsense on faith is NOT logical. The Abrahamic religions are conspicuous examples of this type of religion.

    I can agree with this. I might even say that a definition of faith is the pressure from your peers to believe anything no matter how nonsensical, just because they say it is so. Faith in the absence of proof is simply dressed up stupidity.

    I was thinking very much along these lines. I also think it is more logical to worship nature (as an expression of the divine) than historical prophets and preachers.

    But faith can be used to bridge the gap when there is evidence without total proof.
