    I read the Koran about 2004.
    I found it to be just as full of shit as the Torah, Talmud, and New " Testament".
    HOWEVER.
    I love Dr. Seuss.

    Never study. Read them often.
    I am the weird one. I enjoy listening to others and thbeir interpretation of the Bible without telling them:
    "You are wrong and I am right".

    I read Buddhist texts often. The Heart Sutra is one of my favorites. The Bodhycharyaravatara--Guide to the Bodhisattvas Way of Life is another.

    When it comes to fiction, I prefer detective novels.

    It's not uncommon for a devotee to consider their sacred texts as Truth and other traditions scriptures as fiction.

    I'm working on the Qur'an, read the Bible twice (begats and all) and look forward to getting my hands on a copy of the Torah. I studied Eastern religion in undergrad gen ed, and really liked Shinto for reasons previously stated elsewhere, in a thread far, far away.

    Dr, Seuss is the shit.
