Yes, the Flying Spaghetti Monster Religion. I have yet to be touched by it's noodly appendage. Why me? It's just so mysterious.

Urantia. I've seen some of its maps, but am not familiar with most of their views. As a sci-fi fan, their art and conceptualizations are visually fascinating, but I have studied very little about it otherwise. I know that they think Jesus created a super galaxy consisting of heavenly planets and what have ya.

I don't find any religion mysterious because I know where they all originate from.

The worship of Jehovah, especially as practised by Christ and the Apostles, comes from the original source via Abel, Enoch,Noah, Abraham, Moses, et all, and the religion of the Israelites when they were still faithful,.

Everything else comes from Satan.

Simple as.

What I do find mysterious is how anyone can believe anything else when it is so obvious.

You are not alone. Most low caste untouchable were denied access to their religion and remained too illiterate to gain any knowledge of Hindu beliefs.

Axonly,

More than 10000 years ago, Jainism was founded by Emperor Rishabh after as a different sect , not as a religion.

Harikrish,

Do Indians need British Broadcasting Company to write about their own history?

The British were in India for 2 centuries and did much to write our history as a formal colonial power.

Probably Hinduism. It's the one religion that I never got taught in school and now i'm left with almost no knowledge of it, which is quite sad considering its the third most popular religion.

Russian Orthodoxy and its differences to Catholicism/ Protestantism also interests me.

The ones with never ever seen before. Never ever will be seen, unproven, magical, mythical, masters of the universe. God's I think they call them.
People believing in things like this might I think be feasible, but they go way over the top and the worship the thing that can never be proven. Now that's another level crazy. If people can lie to themselves . Well they can't possibly have any morals and you can't trust em around your goldfish , cats and dogs. Always keep a eye on em .

Meaningless and baseless assertion. You have zero evidence to support that statement.

On the contrary I have the Bible. That demonstrates very clearly that there can only be one true faith, and describes how to identify it.

Just because you choose to deny the evidence does not mean it does not exist or isn't valid.

Like most people you are in denial. Many will remain that way until Jehovah opens their eyes for them.

Nothing I post on here is baseless.

Your holy book is the claim and therefore cannot be used to justify itself. There are no contemporary, secular sources that supports any of your contentions. Until you can provide those, nothing you purport has any value at all.
