Religion/Faith Comparison Website

For those who want to make an informed decision before joining a cult
  [vote for,

You know how there are websites where you can compare different features between products. Or different features between programming languages.

Maybe we should have a site dedicated to "religion/cults", who are looking for certain faiths that best suits them.

Maybe they want their god to have a male and female version? Or maybe genderless.

Or they want a faith that is supercompact in terms of rules to follow (e.g. just 10 commandments to follow only!). Or maybe they want one that is fast to learn and follow.

It can cover both artificial and naturally evolved religions. Do you want one where the founding leader is still living or dead?

Or maybe you want a god that is badass like Thor? Too many choices?

Well there is always the random button. Works just as well as the lottery of birth!

Having looked up comparing anything against anything else (which I thought was a good idea) I found this website. [zen_tom, Jan 05 2015]

       You mean like <link> ?

       Looks like it somewhat. Something seems rather missing from this thought, can't quite pin it down.   

       Maybe a mode where you can compare a shortlist of religions in bigger details?   

       Much like how one would conduct a hiring process.

       If you examine non-cult religions closely enough, in essence comparing a faith to itself, you might end up rejecting all of them as being self- inconsistent (to say nothing of one being "better" than another). For example in Christianity, God is supposed to be "just". There are claims, however, that various infractions committed during a FINITE lifespan are punished eternally/infinitely. Kind of like, "rob a bank, be tortured for a trillion years, just for starters" --how does that qualify as "just" (a punishment that fits the crime)? Perhaps the claims of infinite torment are simply lies? Then why should you believe anything else that is claimed about Christianity, eh?   

       This Idea basically opens up a major can of worms....

       //can of worms//...a particular vermiculous tin from which a torrent of oligochaetae, entozoon and nematoda have been steadily emerging since it first sprang open in ancient times.   

       It has however given me an idea for a more general comparison website, the text of which I shall type out forthwith.

       Tying down exactly what adherents to different religions believe is controversial. For example at different ends of the spectrum you'll get Christians that hold a rational, science-based worldview while others believe in a literal six-day creation. Regardless of this they'll probably have very similar views on morality and ethics. Therefore, I think the more important thing to capture in any comparison of religions is how good they are at producing fair and tolerant societies. This would also be controversial, but there's a lot of data out there so it should be amenable to analysis.

       Perhaps it should have Amazon-style suggestions?
