Unless I'm mistaken we've yet to see the seven actually demonstrate any supernatural power. I think the same could be said about the drowned lord but I'm a but rusty on AFFC.

Therefore I'd put old gods, god of light, seven, drowned

This, but due to Berric/shadow babies/etc.

I put the old gods as 1a and lord of light as 1b

i'm not a book reader, but i'm starting to wonder if this one is supposed to mirror christianity. monotheistic, miracles, "one true god".

of course it seems all witchcraft and voo-doo-ey but all unfamiliar religions are viewed that way. one religions burning bush and loaves and fishes are another's shadow baby assassin.

re: Best religion in Westeros (spoilers i spect)
I had a real question but didnt want to get hammered for another GoT thread and it is somewhat related

Which continent is more sophisticated?

Westeroa seems to be poorer and stuck in feudalism whereas commerce rules the east. the east has slavery, but also practices what is regarded as a legit while the seven gods seem to be akin to paganism. It appears to be capitalism vs. feudalism

It's really tough, but I think bravos and qarth are more sophisticated than any place in westeros for sure.

I'd say the closest religion to Christianity in Westeros is the Seven. They are all said to be one god but with seven different aspects, similar to Christianity's belief in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

We will all come to worship The Great Other before all is said and done

yeah, I couldn't remember if it was just CPR or something more. Now that you say that though, I remember.

What if all the religions worship all the same gods.

R'hollor owns at this point, with old gods coming on strong. The faith of the seven and drowned god seem like bull shite to me.

Faceless men are damned impressive too.
