I really enjoy studying world religions for two reasons. 1. behind all the preaching they are fantastic documentation of the worlds history and I really love history and 2 is that in all the time I have spent studying I have noticed most run pretty much the same basic story lines.
most all even the religions with many gods have one main supreme power.
There is always a holy mother of some fashion
there is always a son who is reborn
One thing I have never found is a religion that says yes spread hate and intolerance in my name. So why do so many do it?
I have also wondered why the story of babel is in pretty much every religious rhetoric but no one has stopped to realize maybe what we all believe is more alike than we are taught.
If I had a time machine i think it would be interesting to see what the original religions were like back when they first formed before they were dirtied with political agendas and the the like.

Interesting that the christians, throughout the ages, have added in the killing part all on their own!
This made me think of Titus 1:13 This witness is true. For this very cause keep on reproving them with severity, that they may be healthy in the faith, 14 paying no attention to Jewish fables and commandments of men who turn themselves away from the truth. 15 All things are clean to clean [persons]. But to [persons] defiled and faithless nothing is clean, but both their minds and their consciences are defiled. 16 They publicly declare they know God, but they disown him by their works, because they are detestable and disobedient and not approved for good work of any sort.
