"...I disagree with approximately 95% of ALL modern world religions (certainly, INCLUDING Christianity"...

It is interesting because neither Christianity nor Judaism, nor any religion founded in India or China, which are indeed older than Judaism and thus Christianity, are "modern religions".

Modern may be considered anything that at least came after Christianity like Islam-Chronologically speaking.

Therefore the obvious Oxymoron was set by you in this statement.

If you consider Islam as a religion, rather than a political movement disguised as a religion as a way of "legal" acceptance, regardless now its real aim, you would be stating, since Islam is the youngest one here that you do not believe in Islam. This is the only hypothesis that fits.

Good Job for Now.

Occasional and Seasonal cults and faiths in false leaders are not categorized as religions; therefore it is out of the real spectrum in your statement.

Yet you finish your statement with 'Peace', which may be meant as a hypothesis: Peace be upon him. Who is this "him"/Her?

If you aberrate us with the parameter/ statement that islam is the oldest religion b.c it is what muslims believe that we were all Muslims atethe beginning today some still are and the rest are revert/convert, you will again aberrate us, b/c this is the most absurd, aberrant hypothesis any human being has any displayed in history- Not even Nazis were so stupid/liars in regards to the Chronology of the civilization- thus we have two alternatives:

Or the one that stated such a "thing" is not human, or carries severe mental disability, or yet he/she is a tremendous swindler and a liar, whoever is this one (man or woman).

Personally:

To end it, I believe in all religions but Islam , under the hypothesis/ never synthesis (axiom) that Islam is a religion.

I believe in all religions and it means (100 %), yet Islam is NOT included,

b/c I do not believe that Islam is a religion.
