If you could push a button and make just one current religion vanish, which one would it be and why?
The only rule: No going back in time to eliminate an older “root” religion that would cause present-day variants, branches and splits of the older religion to vanish. Just one modern-day religion gone.
The people who practice the religion would not vanish, just the religion they follow.
You people are going after quality (or the lack thereof). I’d prefer quantity. I believe islam has the largest worldwide membership. I don’t care about the specific religion, but the thought of eliminating any religious thought from the minds of that many people sounds wonderful to me.
Definitely Islam. It’s the second largest religion (if you believe the artificially-inflated numbers for Christianity) and if you compare countries where Islam dominates versus countries where other religions dominate, Islam is the most likely to make my life crap, or simply end me altogether. Presumably the replacement is unlikely to be worse than that, and might be atheism.
Christianity without a doubt, though that gets rid of “The Rapture” and I have my eyes set on a new house up the street that will be vacant
when the rapture comes. Hopefully they’ll leave the keys to the cars also!
