How can we be sure that all religions are wrong?

@cicerone imposter,
Insofar that all religions tend to be sectarian and divisive irrespective of their credo, Buddhism is no exception as shown by recent events in Myanmar. I have said before, we inherit inter group aggression from our primate ancesters, and religion is one factor in its rationalization.

@fresco,
How truly sad. I have always thought that Buddhists were unique in this world; that their teaching was improvement of the self. That's now blown to hell. The "good intentions" of religion no longer holds true. I'm glad to have decided on atheism as a young teen. That decision still holds true today. Religion doesn't seem to make any difference, but may in some cases be worse than no religion. Politics is no different.

Have you considered the obvious fact that your particular interpretation of 'holy writ' is based on the accident of your birth in a post colonial country, with a history of paganism coated with a veneer of missionary Christianity ? There's nothing wrong with your 'international' moral intensions, but basing them on a what others cannot commune with does nothing to help your case. "


My belief in the spirit of Ama is not only "based on the accident of your birth" but based on the proofs based on the "holy writ". He was able to pinpoint on when Jesus Christ was born (May 23) and was crucified (August 17). I said that the true God is omniscient. He knows everything, including what happened in the past and what will happen in the future. What do you mean by "accident of your birth"?

Why is it that Christianity is but one religion concentrated in one part of the world?

@cicerone imposter,


Christianity is in:
a. North America
b. South America
c. Europe
d. Africa
e. Australia and New Zealand

It is in the Philippines, Papua New Guinea, in the Pacific Islands, etc.

Just think: Why did the Roman Empire make Christianity as its state religion during the fourth century AD?

Is Christianity "concentrated in one part of the world" only?

@reasoning logic,
We can't be sure. But it appears all religions are wrong and they are also all right. This means they are wrong about almost everything they say, but they also hold a grain of truth. And they all hold a grain of truth. And they all hold the SAME grain of truth.

@clairerobin,
You totally nailed it!!.. We can never be right or wrong on everything we believe. The important thing is we believe to him..

What we believe is our reality on this planet. We can argue all day long about who is right and who is wrong, but in the end, it doesn't matter, because we all believe in something that is our reality. I try to rely on science to explain our environment, and who we are. It's really about philosophy.
