Religion Roulette by petex Religion Roulette by petex
Those who know me are very aware of my ideas on organized religion.
Those who don't should know that I am against it in every form. I believe it is the greatest source of evil in the world today.
I did this piece based on a concept by a brilliant friend of mine. It was done out of passion for the topic and I hope it inspires some discussion.
For those few who will enjoy this image I am planning on printing posters. Let me know if your interested and I can get you some information.

Which religion has a picture of the Earth as its symbol? Because that's the green one. Or is that one not a religion, just like the green slots in actual roulette, which are there to give the house an edge?

I don't know if it's scary or strange, seeing all those symbols. I knew the world had many religions, but wow.

Yet it's still better than Chat Roulette, were you have a 90% chance of seeing a penis on any given trial.

Round and round and round she goes, where she stops...all religions believe they know(s).
The thing about gambling is, the house always wins.

I don't like to lose, so I stay out of houses of worship.

Not necessarily. It doesn't matter, anyway. I'm just saying that putting money on any religion (even Christianity) is a good way to lose big. ^^

It's an awfully good thing that "kyrocon" doesn't possess all the "money and souls" of the world.

Cute how he would be comfortable with gambling our lives and property over something his parents indoctrinated him into. Yes, that last part is an assumption, but a statistically applicable one.

i quite agree with this bu i would like to point out some inaccurate points i study various religions just for the sake of beating down bible thumpers but that is irrelivent. wicca is actually not an organized religion and the only gods that are worshiped arent actually gods but rather aspects of nature. and not all wiccans are witches. as for Taoism and buddhism i would expect you to know that they do not worship a god. Taoism is about discovering parts of yourself and finding inner peace and control. buddhism is about enlightenment and the only bit they could be wrong about is reincarnation.

It could be taken even further with Buddhism, since there are arguments made by certain scholars of Buddhism that question whether reincarnation is a truth within the religion, or a cultural addition, like the many gods of Tibetan buddhism or the Zen Buddhism's obsession with dividing by zero and multiplying by volkswagens.

Zen Buddhism cracks me up; and "multiplying by Volkswagens" is pure gold.

Einstein once said that the only way to beat roulette was to steal the money when the dealer's not looking. :| I wonder what he would have made of this.

Make your own religion, of course!
Einstein pretty much did that as a response to people asking him about faith too much.

Thats really impressive. Religion has never played a big part in my life, but if it helps fundamentalists scare me. Are all those symbols from different religions, and without me sounding ignorant, could you give me a list of where each symbol comes from?
