I have yet to come across a religion or belief system which is completely 100% unlike any other... So why is it that we focus on the differences between us than the similarities? And why is it that it's so hard to see how alike they really are?
Every day there are questions on here like "What do Pagans/Wiccans/Buddhists/Random Religion believe" or "Why do "They" believe "this"... Why is it so hard to find the things that make us the same and so easy to find the things that make us different?
I think it's because the differences "define" us, they make us who we are as "individuals" (even in a group). Beyond that I think it's because people feel the need to understand why others do things differently not because they necessarily have the drive to truly understand it (even though some do) but because, "WHAT IF what I believe in about 'xyz' isn't right?" It's fear driven, IMO, they need to prove the differences wrong in order for them to be right, or they put out feelers like that because they aren't convinced they are "right" and want to see what's what. If that makes any sense?

I agree we should focus what we have in common, but most people like drama and get more out of being judgemental. Blessings..
