is this quote by Mark Twain:
"The easy confidence with which I know another man's religion is folly teaches me to suspect that my own is also." ~ Mark Twain ~
Let's face it. Not every religious belief can be right, right? What's folly, and what isn't? It's all well and good to be politically-correct when we're talking about religion, and to claim respect for all beliefs, but that would put all beliefs on equal-footing as your own, and make them as likely to be as correct as your own. So, the reality is you must, by default, find other beliefs lacking the same merit as your own. Why? Is there more truth in the Qu'ran than in the Tanakh? More truth in the Adi-Granth than the Qu'ran? More in the Tanakh than in the Bible? More in a certain Bible over another version?
How do you know?

There are many mysteries regarding my belief system and certainly I don't claim to know everything. There are just things I have a very strong belief in, this is called faith. For me religion and faith are a life long journey of wonder and questions about the world we don't see right in front of us.
