Are you trying to imply Scientology is a mainstream religion, OP?

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

1. All of them
2. None of them
3. A movie? Please no!

They're all equally ridiculous. The only difference between Scientology and Christianity, for instance, is that Scientology is new to us. Xenu dropping spirits into volcanoes seems more absurd than talking snakes only because we've been hearing about talking snakes for longer.

As for which would make the best movie, I assume you mean a cinematic depiction of the beliefs themselves? Because with the right director and writing, I personally think the Biblical tale of creation and Mankind's divine retribution could be pretty epic.

RE: Which mainstream religion story...
In the south we have (in no particular order):

1. Evangelicals who roll around and speak in tongues (watch Marjoe for a taste of that)
2. Southern Baptists that forbid drinking, dancing and basically anything fun
3. Snake handlers

These are my southern top 3, but I agree as said above that all are equally nonsensical, not just Christian denominations. And I like KC's list especially!
