Bahai. A religion which tries to hold all religions together and fails miserably. It maintains the impossible belief that all religions are true while dismissing the most important elements of the religions which they claim are true. Bahai are also too politically correct to exist I feel.

The religions I find most interesting are:

The Ancient Sumerians religion: pretty much the basis for everything else that has come since.

Ancient Egyptian Religion - some really cool stuff here. A lot of history and a lot of different belief's. God's, Deities and lots of rituals. Again according to Wiki: Ancient Egyptian religion was not a monolithic institution, but consisted of a vast and varying set of beliefs and practices, linked by their common focus on the interaction between the world of humans and the world of the divine. The characteristics of the gods who populated the divine realm were inextricably linked to the Egyptians understanding of the properties of the world in which they lived.[

Jainism: Ancient India Religion. Look it up it's very interesting and according to Wiki: The principle of ahimsa (non-violence or non-injury) is the most fundamental and well-known aspect of Jainism. The everyday implementation of the principle of non-violence is more comprehensive than in other religions and is the hallmark for Jain identity.

Hinduism - Pretty interesting stuff here. Shiva ftw.

Islam - Another very interesting religion with a lot of history and controversy (to be fair most of the major religions are surrounded in controversy).

Zoroastrianism

Any and all cults and their offshoots particularly the Order of the Golden Dawn. Lots of fun reading there.

Least interesting are:
Christianity - probably because this is the religion most of us are most familiar with. It's sort of a mish mash of everything that's come before it. Basically it's the World of Warcraft of religions lol. No disrespect intended. There is NO right or wrong way to believe. There is only what is right or wrong for you.

I would love to say Catholicism also but it's actually a pretty interesting religion. My not caring for it very much doesn't change that fact.

I think Sikhs are way awesome cool. A few years back a local group sponsored a series of short informative television shows on public access channel about the history of the Sikh religion, from the beginning up to modern religious disputes within the community. {Is it okay to dine off of Western style tables?} It was very interesting, but so removed from my religious background it may as well have been excellent science fiction. However, if I lived in Westeros I would rather everyone follow the Sikh religion with genuine requirements that people be decent than the Red God or the Seven or the Ancient Gods.
