Peace?

Isn't that what the afterlife is for?

I'd have to say the goofiest are the Mormons. The history alone is the stuff of ... well, numerous south park episodes.

Not to mention ...

Yep, Mormons FTW- dum,dum,dum,dum,dum!

Pretty much all of them. Except when they get nasty - then I stop laughing and get very angry.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

RE: Which type of religion do you laugh at the most?
Back when I was Christian, I used to laugh at Wicca because I (ironically) thought it was foolish. Some things I learned from my friends at college:
  • Everything is composed of the classic Greek elements (plus maybe a fifth one?). Unsurprisingly, spicy things like cinnamon and onions contain "fire".
  • Several people I played D&D with believed they could somehow put energies into their dice, but if anyone else touched them, it would ruin the process. Somehow, this was supposed to make the dice roll higher numbers (can the energies read the numbers on the dice, or is there mind-reading going on here?). I should have called them cheaters and demanded to touch all of their dice, because the purpose of the dice is to provide a fair sampling of the RNG, not to roll high numbers.
  • They could cast real spells, but they never seemed to want to or be able to do anything demonstrable.

I tend to find all religions pretty ridiculous, now. Wicca and Scientology still hold a special place in my hearts because I have a living grandmother who predates both of them. The existence of these religions reminds me that people can start believing in things that were obviously fabricated last week. As annoying as that is to contemplate, I love to bust that fact out when people tell me that the disciples must have been right, because they wouldn't have followed something that isn't true.

Scientology. It's easier to laugh at something when the grand majority also laughs at it. Most other religions are taken seriously, so I don't laugh at them, they just tick me off.

Popcorn I put more thought into fiction than theists put into reality.

I'm more in the "completely dumbfounded" group when it comes to religion.

"You actually believe in WHAT????"

We have enough youth. How about looking for the Fountain of Smart?

Yes, Scientology nuts.

However, there's a tribe on an island that worships Prince Philip, the queen's hubby. That's pretty funny.

It true. Really.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Its hard to take this or any of its derivatives very seriously. But the muslims and jews and hindus, etc. are just as silly.

At least he is real.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

First amendment.

I'm sure there are those out there who say "How the American government does not see atheists are a dangerous cult and shut them down, I will never know."
