How can we be sure that all religions are wrong?

@reasoning logic,
You can learn lots of thinks from books and google, but that is not the only form of knowing. I could research your life and write a biography about you without even knowing you personally. If a religion does not lead to a real connection with God, then it is just hot air.
But, you cannot pursue such a connection without some form of guidance.
Testimonies are important, but they can only point you in a direction so you can find out for yourself. And, bad and fake testimonies may end up leading us astray if you rely on them too much. In the end, we must take responsibility for our search.
I can testify that the Bible is true, Jesus is real and that true Christianity will lead you to the living God. When I believed, it began with considering the testimony of others, but it was only as I read the bible and cried out to the Lord, that He became real to me. We all have to find Him ourselves, but without directions we wont know where to look.
God has supplied the Bible to guide us in the right direction, but we have to be willing to take it seriously enough to act. Only those willing to follow the directions and find out for themself will get to the destination.

Jesus said, "My doctrine (teaching) in not Mine, but His (God the Father) who sent Me. IF anyone wills to do His will, he shall KNOW concerning the doctrine, whether it is from God or whether I speak on My own authority. He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory; but He who seeks the glory of the One who sent Him is true, and no unrighteousness is in Him. Did not Moses give you the law (Old Testament scriptures), yet none of you keeps the law? Why do you seek to kill Me?" Gospel of John Chapter 7, verses 16-19
Jesus is either a Liar, a Lunatic or the Lord He claimed to be; but you will not find out the truth by sitting on the fence and calling believers names. C S Lewis (Narnia books) realized this and decided to find out for himself. His book Mere Christianity, is a helpful read.
It takes courage to get off the fence and begin walking according to His teaching without all the so-called proof that people seek. But the KNOWING you seek cannot be found without following His directions. If you are sincere, He will make Himself KNOWN. If you are not, you would not recognize Him anyway - just like those who killed Him.
If Jesus is truly the Savior of the world, who has risen from the dead, then He can make Himself KNOWN to you TODAY.
I can only point you in the right direction, and ask you to read Johns Gospel - which was written for those who wanted to truly KNOW the truth.
The question is Do you want to KNOW Him enough to read it and ask Him to reveal Himself to you?
You can take my testimony seriously enough to find out for yourself, or you can totally ignore my words and do something else. Whatever you do, you cannot now say that you did not KNOW where to go to find out the truth - and God will hold you accountable for that.

Courteously as possible...you do not KNOW there are any gods...and you do not KNOW anything about the nature of any gods that do exist, if any exist.

All you are doing is blindly guessing that there is a god...and then blindly guessing about its nature.

Nothing wrong with that, but to try to sell it as KNOWING is silly.

@reasoning logic,
I have this idea:

Sunlight is the sequence, of unthinking creating real movement using socialism, a sequence of inspiration.

In this context, there is then the idea, of environment before life getting its fix. By this, what's meant is that in the grand scheme of things, even preceding the entire universe, there will be the question of what comes first - ala egg or the chicken -

Does environment come first, or does life come first, and life in the homo sapien sense.

On the basis, that environment comes first, that would surely mean that religions are wrong, even if God is real.

About the last comment: any reality of God is dependent on religion, from the perspective of expected subservience, thus, there is no illogic in religion being negated by environment, from the perspective of God being real.

I'm with you on this one, Albuquerque.

There are times I read some of the current posts and wonder: What the hell has happened to this place? You see collections of words...English words...that are nothing but "collections of words."

@Frank Apisa,
It's because they confuse being unintelligible with being profound.

When I was marking work I never had a problem understanding what the smart kids were saying. The thick ones were something else entirely.

Clearly you didn't understand my post.

You're thick, that's why you don't make any sense because there is none.

I see. So among other things you also don't understand irony.

I see that Bulma thinks that being iron-headed...is being ironic.

That's ironic.

@Frank Apisa,
He's sounding like Max, irony was a word that Max loved and failed to grasp in equal measure just like Bulma.

Baldrick says it best, it's like goldy or silvery but iron.

There is nothing more iron-headed than 'ignore', Frank.

Stuck it up, Frank has put you on ignore.

Accept it and stop bloody whining, people put me on ignore all the time, it's part of posting online.

It's also what stupid people say when their stupidity is pointing out, like irony is a get out of cretinism free card for the fuckwit community.

You mean 'dust my sandals off' and walk away?

When the time comes, Izzy. Don’t worry, It won’t be long.

No, I meant what I wrote, from what I understand Jesus didn't do whining and had no need to suck it up.

No Izzy, I agree with you. I was just enjoying the irony.

I think that’s what JC would do.

@izzythepush,
I'm afraid that I'm not Max. Not that I'd be able to convince you. Maybe the reason people start to sound the same has more to do with it being the same you. That you haven't resolved whatever issue is making you fail at grasping irony, sarcasm, and comedic timing.

You don't even get pop culture references.

If I told you that in three days, the moon would fall on us, you wouldn't even say, "Stop playing Majora's Mask!" You'd tell me I'm crazy or stupid. How boring. And there is nothing more depressing than talking to people who don't seem to have any interesting hobbies.

Stupid people always claim they were being ironic when caught out.

It's clichéd.

@izzythepush,
Stupid people can claim other people are stupid.

But it's obvious. They have a fallback comment, instead of defending an argument. I've asked where your sense of irony is, why you don't seem to know pop culture, or about anything interesting. Like a crappy computer program where all inputs lead to one output, I type in different comments and get the effective equivalent of an error message. The file isn't found, so the program says to return "You're stupid" as a safeguard to crashing the program for null output.

If I'm so stupid, how come I can make massive walls of text to defend ideas? How come most of what I see from you is the same tired insults? Someone has creative energy. Someone else is checked out.

I can usually tell that you don't have any information on the topic at hand. That kinda makes you lacking, not me.

And you misused the word cliched. Cassandra told people about stuff (prophecy of doom, but that's not relevant here) only to fall on deaf ears. What could be a bigger cliche than that?
Stupid people pretending to use the word irony? Nahhh, aside from Alanis Morissette, I don't know anyone to do that.

But smart people telling stupid people the truth with long-winded explanations, and being called stupid for it? That's not only ironic but it is very much a cliche.
