The Shinto and Buddhist views on reincarnation are pretty interesting. As are Jewish holidays.

In the loosest sense, it's a philisophic stance on religious beliefs, causing it to bleed into the category. Not unilaterally organized or with ceremonies, but it "none" still has it's place as a religious category.

wut?...
But I guess for some it would be the "middle ground"/don't be a part of anything, and for many others its not...mostly means they got nothing to do with religion or such beliefs?..
Again though you said it was in the looest sense, for some it might.
While it means what it means?...

Church of the FSM, because as far as I know it's the only religion on the planet to practice bad faith.

How does one take something that one already knows and also intends to be a mocking caricature (that's the important fact- caricature in intent) and make that an object of worship? A "normal" faith is given to something that is understood to be in de facto existence and not du jure

I'm an atheist and I find most religions interesting - though purely on an academic level. If I had to pick... Buddhism? My dads wife is Buddhist. We've had some interesting conversations about it.

I am not hugely religious, I am however, very interested in ancient theology. Greek, Roman, Egyptian, Norse, etc. They all have interesting belief structures of a deity to rule over each aspect of life, with many stories surrounding each deity.

I find Shinto and Buddhist theology/mythology fascinating.

I also find Scientology fascinating, but in a 'OMG shit how the hell can they get away with this?' sort of way. Not in a good way at all.

I'm a Buddhist and I find Shintoism to be very interesting. Both of them are.

I have an uncle into Scientology and I've been reading a lot of books like Going Clear.

L Ron Hubbard might be the greatest goddamn troll of all time.
