So I'm tossing around this idea of a MUD system of religion that mirrors religion in our world today. I think it might be very beneficial if I could have some help outlining the different popular religions of our world, how they are similar, and how they differ. Perhaps we could get a discussion going for these in-game pseudo religions so that I could gather information. More than anything I would like to capture the passion and intensity involved in religious conflict. This might be easily accomplished if I start out with a simple statement as an in-character "atheist" from this world idea.
"I believe that no higher power exists, and even being capable of believing in one will qualify you as an idiot."
EDIT: I forgot to add, please chime in with how you believe a psuedo-religion of your choosing would respond to this statement.
