Ja! I don't see why I couldn't declare myself a religion. I worship me. I
am a regular god of wisdom, a fountain of hilarity. Having the UN declare
the law would make it binding on all member nations.

Good work on that, Keith. Can we declare you a religion? I can imagine a
certain existing religion that would be worried bigtime.
Speaking of which, what happens under such rules when two similar competing
religions criticize each other? A shining example is not hard to imagine.
