    hmm.. Sikhism agrees more with me philosophically, but I'd pick Hinduism as I'm formerly Hindu and it's comfortable and open for me.

    Taoism, probably, or maybe Advaita Hinduism. Would Discordianism count? :p

    Why wouldn't they? :D That doesn't sound like a bad choice either... maybe I'd go with that one instead.

    Probably Baha'i. It seems closest to Christianity. And I like the fact that it is a completely peaceful religion that denounces violence and respects the religion of others. I already subscribe to that way of thinking so it wouldn't be a big jump.

    Officially I'm Unitarian but I wanted to be Baha'i Faith too so if I couldn't be Unitarian the choice would be easy....

    A good base foundation of Panentheism with the rest being fillers of the best cherry picked parts from a half dozen other religions. Although, give it some time and I'm sure that'll be subject to change as well.

    I'd go from Modern Deism to Classical Deism, and join the ranks of Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Paine.
