Can it be possible? Mostly we are into some religion coz we have born to parents of that religion. Rather than this, can it possible to make change in law, that everyone will choose his religion when he has got a voting right. Till then he will be just a minor citizen of nation and bound to the constitution. Even chance should be given if someone like to remain just a citizen of that country without any religion. Then for him constitution of perticular nation will become his religion. Everyone will go through religios learnings for sometime and will decide what kind of religion he want to. and is it necessary to change names after religion adoptions?

Yes. lots of people converts to other religions. but thats from one religion to another. Infact if all religion teaches same thing, what makes one to convert to another. and religios conversion means exactly what?

I think that most religions has the same basic teaching of good nature. Not to steal, not to kill, to respect one another. If with religion this is being taught to young children then it will help them to grow up to be good citizens. Yes most of the time the religion of the child is that which was of the parents, but they do have the choice to change religion and there is so many ways to learn about other religions. This isn't the stone age. We have great technology, our school systems teach the different religions and religious beliefs. We have the ability to decide what is best for us. I don't think they need to change their name for a religion. What's in a name. I am from the biggest mixing pot of the world and I am of a very mixed back ground. So I see all different people with all different religious beliefs and I see only people. And the majority all believe in god and try to live a respectful life, and in the end that is all that matters.

Yes. All religions teach same things about social behavior. so the law is? which law says steal and kill and all. religion is much more than teaching social behavior. like, existance of god and how you can seek him/her/it. It need lot of matuare understanding of whole plot. good nature and behavior can be tought in schools without religion attached to it. and the major draw of any religion is to give final karmic peace should be left afterwards.
