Top Ten Dumbest Religions

The Top Ten

1 Islam

I'm really sad to see islam here...why are you guys judging islam by the lies of the media? And also ben laden and Qaeuda are bad people they aren't real muslims, they spread terror all over the world, real muslims won't spread terror and also why do you say Islam is terrorism because of the close minded muslims? Does it mean that islam is really bad because of close minded believers? I'm muslim myself and I'm really open-minded and I don't agree with ben laden :). - nooreldeen

I am a person to respect peoples religions, but I hate people that judge one group or body with one stereotype, I hate to say it, but it's mostly Christians that do this, people do it because they want to choose one group to blame everything on so they can feel good about themselves. there is good and bad in every religion.

Islam OVER SCIENTOLOGY! DEAR GOD! I am catholic and I still think that this is unfair. Islam is NOT a religion of violence or hatred. It is a religion of peace. I feel like the only reason people think badly of it is because of the 911 attacks and the war on terror. This makes no sense and it is very offensive to anyone who is a Muslim or knows a Muslim. To say that all Muslims are evil like Al Queda or ISIS is like saying all Germans are evil because of Hitler. One bad apple can ruin the reputation of an entire group. 99.9% of Muslims are outright disgusted by 911 and other acts of terrorism because they are GOOD PEOPLE. Osama Bin Laden was just a genocidal monster who twisted the Islamic teachings into a sick philosophy that supports violence and bloodshed. NO RELIGION SUPPORTS THAT! GOD DOES NOT WANT US TO KILL EACH OTHER FOR HIM! I hope that that animal is ROTTING IN HELL right now. Please people. Stop watching fox news and stop treating people who are Muslim or Jewish or ...more

I have nothing against Islam, or any religion for that matter. I just came to see what the "dumbest" religion was, and peoples reactions to it.

May Allah curse those who make up false claims and rumours about Islam. Just because some weird guy who had no sense of Islam called Bin Laden claiming to be a Muslim acted like an idiotic idiot does NOT mean some dumb media people take this an excuse to lure people away from Islam and feed them bad information about this unmatchable religion. Not one true Muslim on this planet will say that the likes of Bin Laden, Al Qaeda, Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale are of any sort of Muslim. Islam is a religion of peace, we fight only when it is REALLY necessary and even when we do we fight for our lord Allah and our religion Islam. May Allah accept my prayer.

2 Scientology

This is dumb bec how is this a religion? Is there a Scientology book people follow or summat? Very sad to see Islam at the top bec of everyone's misconceptions, while there are a few people who don't swear and slander and only say why they why they are against Islam. Most people just vent and are speaking the language of misconception. You can't even categorise Islam or people of the book in this kind of categories.

Kill Scientology it's a cult that has been accepted as a religion.
Religious people or people who just believe in ghosts have always believed in the soul not the stupid Thetan. (Which has a red line underneath it. My spellchecker does not recognise the word haha.)

This is the dumbest religion should be at number one! Religion about the soul what the hell? Come on people this is ridiculous. Sorry if I offend any of you but this religion seems pointless did a world religions project on it.

A religion where you need to be an active user of lsd to understand a damn thing

3 Satanism

Satanism in the modern sense does not exist. The term origenated when secret societies in Europe began forming with ideologies and teachings different than that of the Catholic Church (The Nights Templar, the Illuminati, the Freemasons, etc). They wernt Satan worshipers, they were just people who thought that the church was corrupt (which they were at the time) and sought to learn more about science and other "unchristian" subjects. As a method of stopping people from joining them, the church burnt them on the stake and called them Satanists as a method of associating them with evil. Eventually the groups went into hiding and over hundreds of years the Church's propaganda became so deeply rooted in western culture that most people thought that Satanists really worshiped Satin. But to say that Satanists really were (an are) devil worshipers would be to say the same thing about people like Galileo, George Washington, Ben Franklin and Leonardo de Vinci.
Anyways, the whole concept of ...more

There are few believers of satanists still out there... But there is. - TheHabsFan

This is honestly the most retarded religion I have ever heard of, this religon makes no sense

To the anonymous user who said, "Satan gave man free will" and,"Keeping man a slave":

God gave man free will; if He didn't then what was the point of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil? He wants us to love Him freely and therefore gave us a choice. If no choices were present then we would have had no choice but to obey Him, but since there was a choice that disproves your ignorant claims. - llamabaconllama37

The name says it all

4 Mormonism

Not only were there inconsistencies within scripture, but Joseph Smith literally "translated golden plates" using a stone in a hat in which he placed his head in. also no one was allowed to see until one day "god" gave joseph smith the right to show witnesses the golden plates who soon left to believe in other religions. One of the biggest downfalls in a lot of peoples' belief in the LDS church is when The Book of Abraham that came from something called a papyrus that was "translated" by Joseph Smith at the time and no one could disprove it because ancient egyptian hieroglyphs weren't able to be translated yet. The Papyrus was soon discovered in I think the 1970's well after we had discovered the rosetta stone which had taught us how to basically translate hieroglyphs. When given to professionals, they found that it was some ancient burial ritual that had nothing to do with the story of Abraham and dated way before even the book of Genesis. Book of Mormon was based in the americas and ...more

Mormons are genuinely retarded.

This should be number one because Jesus never visited North America. Other branches like Catholicism and Protestantism are better and more accurate.

Its retarded

5 Amish

Boi, I don’t wanna look like a damn pioneer settler!

This isn't a religion, it is a way of living. Amish can be whatever the hell they want.

It is an variant of the Mennonite branch of Christianity - not surprisingly most commenters have little idea how it works. Just one quick note - they don't reject all technology and may use it as needed. Not in their homes however. Visit an Amish area and see how windmills have been replaced by solar panels. And many, if not most families have cell phones, and quite a few computers with WiFi. The Amish Mafia is totally fake, but ironically there are actual Amish Web dating sites.

They live the way they do for religious reasons. It's a branch off of Christianity, but it's its own religion.

6 Christianity

You people curse Islam still we respect Christianity, yes we do! But, if you don't respect us, fine, we will tolerate every bad thing say about us. It's just because of one idiotic dog called Bin Laden who didn't understand the message of Allah and started killing innocent people like a mad man... And who are the people to take the blame... ALL the Muslims. Look at what Christianity has done, they forced people to lead the Christianity in the slavery times. And today... all the innocent Muslims have to suffer like mad... when a child is a Muslim and he/she goes to school people laugh at them, people discriminate them, people just act like DOGS. Islam is a religion of peace, love, freedom. I totally agree that Bin Laden is a idiot, but why does the whole Islamic community have to pay for that? Are we the ones that have done wrong? Did we send Bin Laden to kill people? No!... But what can I say... Forgive me if I've said something that's hard, I have a lot of respect for the Christians, ...more

Anyone at all that believes in God...but thinks the Bible is man made trash.
At the time the Bible was just used because no one had enough information on how the world happened.

The thing that bothers me about Christianity is the drive to keep being "right." With so much modern science it just angers me to think that people still believe in creationism, which is comparable to Greek mythology. Gods who created people as is.

Originally, people thought the earth was flat. Up in the sky and clouds was heaven, and down in the ground was hell.

Then, people FINALLY accepted the earth was round, after scientists who opposed religion were oppressed and hated for bringing forth new ideas, hell was in the earth heaven around it.

What? We went to space? Well, uh, heaven is a spiritual thing, so is hell. That's how it works, you can't physically go there.

This is simply one example. I understand there are great teachings of the religion, but people won't let go of what is ridiculous, and force it upon their children. It bothers me how much this religion is forced on people, especially from birth. I was born into a half-Christian half ...more

I cannot believe this is here! I cannot believe I am even looking at this list! I do not care what you think, I believe that Christianity is the true religion and that the Bible is the only inspired work of God. (2 Timothy 3:16) The Bible itself is proof, too. God used 40 unrelated people over thousands of years to write it and not one sentence, not one WORD in the Bible goes against another. John 1:1, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The Bible is the oldest book ever and even though there have been copies so many times it is the same as it was thousands of years ago! Look at the evidence! I am a Christian and I don't care what you people think but there's enough evidence for me!

There is a lot of proof that had been found by a archaeologists that is about the bible. - impeepol

7 Raelism

is gut

What kind of religion is this by the way?

It's a religion based on UFO's

Because shrek is not a fan

8 Wicca Wicca

Wicca is not a religion!

This shouldn't even be on this list there is nothing dumb about wanting to be one with the environment, they are not the witches that people believe they are but instead just people who want to preserve and protect nature

Their belief is based upon the four ancient elements of nature ; water, air, earth and fire. My question is why is that dumb? I'm not a wicca but I can understand their beliefs for those natural forces. It's not because this is more ancient than the current ( but also old beliefs ) religions that it means that it is dumb.

I am offended. The living should join together, not kill each other. Being a Wicca is almost a gift and it helps you, the people, and the environment. It means you can be who you want and make up your own rules but be nice. We are one with nature. Wicca is NOT dumb. - AnonymousChick

9 Sikhism

This is my religion so it bad-pee


Thank GOD I am a Sikh.

I proud that we are Sikh.

10 Shinto

Its Japanese so its bad

Same me to brother

Shinto made me get autism and aids

yay autism


The Contenders

11 Jehovah's Witnesses


Most brainwashed religion

Literal cult enough said

The claim they have the same bible as Christian and they didn't change anything yet every place it says lord or God it says jehovah instead. (Also the missing books which I won't get into) Another thing is they don't even acknowledge the fact that God's real name isn't jehovah it's YHWH or Yahweh someone just translated it into jehovah.

12 Bohra Muslims

What the flip is this? Just another addition to the list so people can bash another faith even more? Til now I have not heard of Bohra

Bohras are one of the dumbest Muslims. More like Goats. Ba Ba Ba

13 Judaism

Worst religion ever, it will poison your mind.

Not all jews suport isreal.

No religion that has a basis and teaches to be a good person is bad in my eyes. I believe all religions are ok, out of all of them I think atheism is dumb. And I don't necessarily say not believing in God or whatever, is what's stupid. They talk about not forcing views on others and do it themselves. That in and of itself is dumb. I believe in science, and all of the evolution stuff. Evolution to a degree can be proven. Humans and beasts adapt to their environment to survive over time. That is evolution. I think mocking And belittling others faiths is dumb. Christians do it too. Basically doing that is hypocrisy. All religions have one common principle. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Even Satanism follows the principle. Which modern day idea most people have of satanism is entirely wrong. It's not necessarily worship of the devil, as much as it is teaching indulgence vs abstinence. No faith is dumb the fighting of which one is right is though. It's like fighting ...more

It's one of the oldest monotheistic religions who were organised with written laws based on god given laws. That's like almost saying that this is the Original of the dumbest religions. Besides Jews are very full of themselves ( just read the comment about winning nobel prizes.. ). The inventors of hypocrisy in politics.

14 Hinduism

"Look guys, Hinduism is not a religion and it is a misnomer. The river which supported the development of the great "Indus civilization" was wrongly pronounced as "Hindu" (actually it would be "Sindhu") by the contemporary civilizations. "S" pronounced as "H". That's how "Sapta Sindhu" became "Hapta Hindu". That's how the people of that civilization was collectively known as "Hindu" Therefore, you can see it has nothing to do with one particular belief system, rather it was the identity of the civilization. It is similar to "Mesopotamian" or "Akkadian" or "Sumerian" or "Egyptian" etc... It has nothing to do with a particular religion.

It is a collection of philosophies (you can also call it "collection of religions"), and almost always they existed in contradiction with others but they flourished side by side, without killing any of the opposing ...more

Hinduism is so dumb just imagine you are thinking that a man made thing is god I mean what?

Hinduism is best religion in world.

World's greatest religion. One of the path to lead a happy and peaceful life. Don't sure about finding god. But definitely can help you lead a happy and prosperous life.

15 Jainism

I am proud to be born in Jain family and being a Jain.

Live and Let Live is the message from Lord Mahavir Swami. This message itself is a great philosophy and I believe the true answer to solve the world's all problems. If one live and let others live will create an environment where all living beings can live with harmony.

Mahatma Gandhi's guru was a Jain monk and he taught him path of Non-Violence. Gandhi did experiment using philosophy of Non-Violence and made a power, land, material hungry British regime to its knees without even throwing a stone.

Jainism is a way of living and all teachings, practices are based on science. People may feel that practicing Jainism way in life is difficult, but I would like that try for few months and see the result.

This religion do not ask anyone to wear some specific clothes, swords, beards. It does not dictates to pray any specific time of day. It does not forces to go to temples, mosques etc. The religious books do ...more

Jainism is a religion which teaches us everything but with a scientific base

This religion is always top 1

It is best out of all

16 Buddhism

It is a scientific religion

If any body who listen to Great Buddhas sayings, you will never give up the Buddhism. No any lies or blind believes in Buddhism. It is the most logical vision in the world.

Buddhism is not a only Religion. It is the most logical vision in the world.

The Buddha was real. His name was Siddhartha Gautama and he was originally Hindu. Then he decided to achieve enlightenment rather than fame and wealth. Thus Buddhism was form.

17 Mennonite
18 Jediism

This should be number 1! It's hard to believe that this is being beaten by Islam, even as a Protestant Christian. At least it has a more decent foundation, Jediism is just based on a movie series, created by MAN!

What Star Wars is a religion!


I like star wars ok but I never knew fans would tale it this far to make a religion

19 Bahá'í Faith

I think this is more than 10 religions

Which religon is this again?

20 Pastafarianism

Actually in the seventh season of Sabrina The Teenage Witch she was well accidentally wearing colander on her head. "I'm not a lunatic" When she was doing a clear out with Roxie, Morgan and Harvey. She was going down the street and people from Scorch saw her and she mentioned about Rings of Saturn to them.
That was before Pastafarianism existed. Before The Flying Spaghetti Monster.

The church to go too sounds ok, just a wacky God.
Their version of pirates seem more like Jack Sparrow than real pirates.
They still celebrate Christmas its just called Holiday in December.

A joke religion because of trying to put the Bible into Science classes in school. But now some people out there really believe there is a Flying Spaghetti Monster.

So you god is spaghetti and meatballs. Why not just make another God which is Bob the Tomato haha

21 Zoroastrianism

YES IT DOES I'm autistic because I JUst left shinto and now I want TO BE in both

I don't even think this exists anymore

It does

The Iranians were actually "Zoroastrian". Their book is "Avesta" and it is similar to "Veda" to some extent. It used to be great religion. Islam was forced on them. Don't you see Iranians are slightly different than the typical followers of Islam? They were visionaries, poets, philosophers etc...

22 Baptist

Is this even a religion? - impeepol

What even?

NOT a religion

23 Taoism
24 Iglesia ni Cristo

This "church" is a money making scam of the Manalo family; one of whom has continuously held the position of executive minister since it's founding by the lead scammer Felix Ysagun Manalo. It has a moronic set of doctrines based largely on Felix's poor understanding of English idioms used in bible translations as well as his liberal twisting and omitting context to make "prophecy" seem to apply to him. INC also is super focused on obedience and offerings $$$.

People hate this religion for bible translates being incorrect, They don't even notice that the translation was just something to make it clear, Sad...

25 Muslim

They are crazy

26 LaVeyan Satanism
27 Heathenry
28 Theistic Satanism Theistic Satanism
29 Puritanism
30 Dudaism

I kid you not. This religion is based off of The Big Lebowski

A religion based on the Big Lebowski...

It's spelled Dudeism

31 Peoples Temple Peoples Temple

Don’t blame the followers who used to follow this stupid church. Blame the douchebag, Jim Jones, who brainwashed and killed them off.

32 Roman Catholicism

CaThOlICs Suck

No we are not

Catholicism has a bunch of pagan symbols and holidays in it. Also the stories in the bible are taken from other religions that were around long before it. its not even a real religion.

I've been a proud Catholic all of my life.. I met my best friend there, I met friendly people and priests, its AMAZING. I haven't met a single person at my church that's insulted me whatsoever.

33 Chen Tao

A series of civilisations on earth have arisen but destroyed themselves in nuclear war. each time, some faithful believers were rescued by flying saucers and put back on earth.
