What “religion” or belief would I classify as?
I do not doubt nor acknowledge the existence of a deity, I simply believe that it is impossible to know for sure if there is a god. However, I do not believe there is a “devil”, nor do I believe in the “good vs evil”. I believe that humans make decisions, and they may be morally upright or not. I believe in the ying yang. Also, I believe in reincarnation, and I believe in Buddhism’s ability to achieve nirvana and escape the cycle of rebirth. However, Buddhism is a philosophy, and I choose not to escape the cycle of rebirth and partake in Buddhist practices, since my desires are far too strong and I don’t mind reincarnating.
Does anyone know what all of this would classify as?

Idolatry, because you have created a religion to suit yourself.

The truth is what matters. Religion involves man trying to reach God or a better afterlife by doing good works. Religion cannot save you; only JESUS saves.
The truth is that death leads to heaven or hell, and the only way to heaven is through faith in Jesus Christ.
The Bible is very clear that no one can earn their way to heaven since good works do not pay for sins. See Gal. 2:16, Rom. 3:23-28, 4:4-5, Eph. 2:8-9, Tit. 3:5. The only way to heaven is by believing in Jesus for His free gift of eternal life. Jesus shed His blood on the cross as the full payment for our sins. He did all the work; all He requires of us is that we believe in Him. Once you believe in Jesus Christ to save you, you are secure forever!
Because we have all sinned against a perfectly holy and righteous God, we all deserve eternal separation from God in hell (Rom. 6:23). However, God loves us so much that He sent His only Son Jesus to die on the cross as our Substitute so we don't have to go to hell. Christ died for our sins, was buried, and rose from the grave three days later (1 Cor. 15:3-4). He gives eternal life freely to anyone who simply believes in Him for it. No one can be saved by doing good works. Salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone (Eph. 2:8-9).
"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life" (John 6:47).

You are interested in your beliefs and desires, not in truth. It is like that for everyone by nature.
I was ahead of most other Jews of my age in my practice of the Jewish religion, and was much more devoted to the traditions of our ancestors.
