Religion is an integral part of the lives of everyone on Earth. It effects our laws, customs, and even our careers so how do we choose (or not choose) our religions? What religion do you follow (or not follow) and why? It is a daily part of your life, or just a frivolous detail?

My Religion (Culture) is Hinduism. Hinduism give more importance to performing of the duties without selfishness than towards worship and prayers. There is no concept of "other religions", religious conversions, paganism or kafir, blasphemy and apostasy etc... in Hinduism. Praying/Worshiping is not a must to follow Hinduism. An atheist can follow Hinduism. These are the things which all other religions lack. Hinduism is Humanity.

Not everyone follows a religion. In fact there are more and more people on the earth that do not follow any religion or believe in any higher power. I have friends in Germany that were brought up this way as a direct result of WWII. This is not the case with me. I spent years researching my roots. I am Jewish by birth, but was not raised as a Jew. I had to learn everything on my own. I even taught myself Hebrew. I am a practicing Religious Conservative Jew. It is my Life. Judaism is not just a Religion. It is also a People, a land, and a Civilization. Shalom~Adoniah

I am vaguely familiar with Judaism. I have great respect for the Jewish faith and people. I have had several good friends who were Jewish and never met a Jew that was not a very good person and was kind to others.
