So, there’s a blog on here called Islam, World’s Greatest Religion! Which, idk, I guess is fair for someone to say that if they believe in Islam, because no one says anything. I mean, I can think of numerous reasons why Islam is not the world’s greatest religion. If I was going to name the world’s greatest religion, in terms of openness, acceptance, peaceful nature, etc, I’d probably go with Buddhism.
Still, I can’t help but wonder what would happen if I changed the name of this blog to Asatru, World’s Greatest Religion and spouted off all the time that Asatru was the best religion, there was no other religion than Asatru, no Gods and Goddesses other than the Aesir and Vanir, that people who practices Asatru were superior and holier than everyone else, and all the stuff that Muslims seem to do about Islam, or Christians do about Christianity, just adapted to Asatru.
I think I might get called a racist…
Certainly, I doubt anyone would believe me that Asatru is the world’s greatest religion. Personally, I think it’s one of the best ones out there (I’m partial to my own team) and I think it’s the greatest religion for myself (except perhaps the ancient Roman religion, that one seems pretty cool). But I don’t have delusions that Asatru, or any of the Heathen religions, are the best in the world. I don’t think there is a “Greatest Religion” in the world. Not even Atheism (which, frankly, is a rather crappy religion when all you do is deny there’s anything out there and call anyone who disagrees with you an idiot :P) All things being equal, all religions should, nominally be equal. Maybe it’s on a bell curve at best, where most religions average out, with a few at the top and few that really suck. Personally, I think any religion that makes its women second class citizens, says anyone who doesn’t worship it is evil and inhuman, and likes to kill gays, sorcerers, and non-believers has to be a pretty sucky religion.
Idk, could be wrong. What do you think? Leave it in the comments.
