World Religions Simplified
Back in the 1980’s I acquired a photocopy of a list called “World Religions Simplified” that had been making the rounds—no idea for how long or who started it. There were a dozen or so religions “simplified” starting with “Taoism = Shit happens.” For amusement I have been editing the list and adding more religions (and views that for some are alternatives to religion), and I would like to invite others to join in the fun by adding to or editing the list. With a bit more polish I’m thinking it would make a worthy poster suitable for framing. Imagine, perhaps, stone tablets or a monolith rendered in 3DS Max with The List carved into the surface.
WRS: The List
Since some work better than others, please rank the following on a scale of 1 to 5 with 1 = “It doesn’t work at all, delete it” to 5 = “Great, definitely a keeper.”
Now, for any that fall short of perfection, try your hand at doing better. Suggest a better definition or add a completely new one.

Another, if only more verbose, way to simplify would be in paragraph form:
Religion (theistic): The belief that there have always been invisible beings and one of them magically created the world. Two people turned into billions and the remaining invisible man threatened all the people with eternal damnation unless they supported His clergy for tirelessly promoting belief in Him. The invisible man wrote books as channeled by various chosen ones. Clergy interpret the holy books, but the people also make their holy book say what they want it to say. But this makes no sense, so WTF?
Christianity: The belief that a cosmic Jewish zombie can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your Lord and Savior, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because of a rib woman who was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree… Yeah, makes perfect sense.
Islam: The belief....
Judaism: The belief....
Buddhism: The belief....
and so on. It would hurt my brain to add to this list, so please feel free to give it your best shot. If worthy, I'll add your offering to the list. Religious education is important!
Suggested by others:
all religions are a manmade construct, a projection as a result of mankinds inability to accept its immortality
Internet trollism: The belief I don't care what shit you believe in just allow me to mock it endlessly and have you respond to my asinine comments so that I will have gratification for my existence.
Atheism: The belief that there is no god or other higher and/or supernatural powers. Any incidium to the contrary are fakes, misunderstandings or will be explained by science.
God was made in man's own image.
Objectivism: Atlas shit.
The religions of the world say that God made man in his own image, but we know the truth: we made him in ours.
