While we're on the subject of different religions, I will reprint something I found years ago (some may have seen its cruder version). Its irony reveals the ludicrousness of the entire subject...
TAOISM Stuff happens.
HINDUISM This stuff happened before.
CONFUCIANISM Confucius says: stuff happens.
BUDDHISM It is only an illusion of stuff happening.
ZEN What is the sound of stuff happening?
ISLAM If stuff happens, it is the will of Allah.
JEHOVAH'S Knock, knock: stuff happens.
ATHEISM There is no such thing as stuff.
AGNOSTICISM Maybe stuff happens, and maybe it doesn't.
PROTESTANTISM Stuff won't happen, if I work harder.
CATHOLICISM If stuff happens, I deserve it.
JUDAISM Why does stuff always happen to me?
TELEVANGELISM Send money, or stuff will happen to you.
