Now see, in my opinion and based on what I've studied about Taoism I do not consider it a religious belief. What I know of Taoism is that it's rooted in naturalism and deals mostly with our perception of the natural world. That's my impression and interpretation of Taoism. I certainly wouldn't spend 20 posts trying to convince anyone else whether or not it's a religious belief. It doesn't matter to me. What I take away from my study of Taoism has nothing to do with any definition of religion, even the 5th or 6th definition.It contains entries on all the major and many minor religions, including Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Jainism, Shinto, Sikhism, and Taoism.
