If your religion did not exist, what religion would you be and why?

For example: If Christianity did not exist, I would probably be leaning toward Judaism since it is somewhat similar to my religion than other possible religions. I am just asking a question, I do not want anyone to get upset in any way, if they should. Thanks. :)

    I'm a Christian and if Christ had not come and so there was no Christianity, then I would be Jewish. But not quite for the same reason you chose. But because in Judaism I would be worshipping the true God.

    I was born and raised Roman Catholic but I lean toward two religions today: 1) Judaism but cannot do this because I know Jesus Christ personally. 2) Amish, because I so admire their purity and way of life. However, I don't feel at this stage in my life I could live so simply and by such high standards.

    Alas, I'll just try to live as fully Christian as far as the grace of God envelops my life. I am grateful for my Catholic background. My faith is strong and enduring but the ritual, etc. gets in the way of my personal relationship with God.

    Pagan. And it would be hard to say. That only leaves me the mainstream religions (as everything outside of those are considered Pagan). So, I would probably be agnostic or atheist, if it came right down to it. (I know! Atheism is NOT a Religion) But none of the mainstream religions "fit".

    If I couldn't be a freethinker, I'd be a Buddhist, since classical Buddhism is the closest thing to a free system of religious inquiry of all the world's great traditions.

    If my religion (Paganism) did not exist, I would probably be Catholic. Catholicism and Paganism have a LOT in common.

    I'm atheist, but if I had to choose a religion I would be Buddhist. I don't know a lot about them, but from what I do know they seem to have it right.

    I am an Atheist so if it did not exist I would have to go with Agnosticism.

    If there were no Heathenism, I would probably be Buddhist or Wiccan or Helenistic or Shinto.

    If there was no agnosticism, I'd probably be an atheist.

    If I was unlucky to have Islam, I would be an atheist (as I used to be.)
