If I'm a Christian and if i had to choose a different religion I would be a follower of Judaism because Christianity and Judaism both believe in the Old Testament..but yeah I wouldn't change my religion even if I was forced to Christianity is my religion and that's never going to change..Jesus is my father in Heaven
I'm a proud atheist. I was born in a hindu family. As said by other proud atheists, i'd rather be dead. But if i had a choice of getting born in a religious family, i'd wish it to be christian. Because, i believe it is flexible(!) and has lesser religious customs.
No offense, but I think your question is irrelevant to actual life since it seems inconceivable to me that I would ever "have to" change what I believe. I am a Christian (for the lack of a more specific term). ;)
If I had to change my religion from something other than being a Christian, I would go on my own kind of Spirit quest. I would go to the one place I have felt closest to God, turn inward to close out all things created by man and seek the perfect peace that I know lives somewhere inside my body. I would wait there until my God found me. I say this because if I was forced to forsake my Christian beliefs, I know my God would never forsake me.
One cannot simply choose to believe something that he or she does not, regardless of what many religious people claim about "choosing god". As an atheist, I don't have a religion to convert FROM, but if I was forced somehow to claim one, I would choose an atheistic philosophy like Buddhism or Taoism.
I think I'd be Muslim. I don't know, I feel like they're terribly misunderstood. Of course, they're guilty of believing fantastic tales that have no basis in reality too, but I know quite a few, and they're all very interesting people.

Generally, when people have HAD to change their religion, they changed it to whoever was the biggest bully on the block at the time. So Buddhist probably wouldn't be an option.Anyway you can't really force people to change what they believe, you can only force them to pretend /lie .
Hmm. I do believe in One God, Jesus, Angels, Demons, Hell, etc. However, I also believe in science. So I guess . . . . I frankly don't know. I find pre-Christian religions (It has been brought to my attention that 'Pagan' is somehow an offensive word and is inaccurate ) fascinatingly entertaining (in a good way). However, I don't agree with their views. This is a tricky question. Everyone finds logic in what they believe. I've found logic in what Ii believe. Therefore, my answer is this: I don't know. If I was reborn into different circumstances, possibly, but I can't imagine what I would believe in then. Frankly, I don't have a clue.
