If you could create your own religion...

... what would it be about?
Would it have gods, one god, no gods, or some other focus of worship? What kind of laws would it have? What about the mythology behind it, or any kind of afterlife?

Balloonism, we would worship the MIGHTY BALLOON. And our religious leaders would wear balloon hats.

They can believe in whatever they want, just so long as they are kind to others.

I would have a god that doesn't care about whether people have unshakable faith in them, but rather oversaw that people had food, shelter, and basic care. No worship is required. Instead of mindless worship, people spend their time trying to learn and make society better. As far as mythology, I like the idea that Satan has been a misrepresented character. That he was condemned for enlightening humanity, and this is wrong. So maybe the god is Lucifer, who regained his glory and took over heaven. After death, people must understand the wrongs they have done. Once they do and are forgiven by those they have wronged, they go to heaven, which is a state of peace and tranquility of the soul. They can relive moments of their life, or converse with other souls in harmony (or angrily if they prefer). Those left unforgiven by those they wronged are stuck on Earth as ghosts, and must help people until they have done enough good.

Either that, or the Flying Spaghetti Monster shooting people with lasers. That sounds pretty cool too.

Interesting concept. I can relate on the bit of Satan and such - I mean how essentially, humanity gains knowledge and this is seen as a BAD thing. Sure, knowledge has it's disadvantages, but people shouldn't be punished for it! It's almost like Christianity at times suggests we should be eternally like children in every way, including complete dependency and all that.
I believe enlightenment should be considered a blessing if anything.

Ignorance may be bliss, but I want no part of it.
