Switching beliefs for a day.
I thought about this and wondered how it might go but i'll ask you guys. If you switched beliefs for a day what religion would you choose and why? Also how would you think the experience might go.

In order for my to 'switch my beliefs' I'd have to be able to rationalise and accept it.. I can't do that.

... I suppose I could give agnostic theism a run...

A single action is worth more than the words it takes to describe it.

Well it's a hypothetical question and not a bad choice.

Maybe a Spinozan deist. Drinking Beverage

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

Pastafarianism. I'd try to really embrace it.

That, or a Taco Bell cult. I had a friend I would joke with about being the high priest and priestess of a Taco Bell cult just due to how often we ate there.
