My religion is right! Yours is wrong!

Just stirring the pot. 

Personally, I'm not religious.  I'm somewhat spiritual, sort of agnostic. Raised Catholic.  'Nuf background on me.

Why do some of you believe your religion is the True Religion when others feel just as strongly about their own?

How can anyone not see the oddness of humans worrying more about belief than about their actions and how they treat others?

Do any of you see anything positive about differentiating among each other instead of finding common ground?

Don't you all think that if humans continue to go down the road of hate, violence, greed, judgment, waste, callousness.....all that bad stuff, we will only destroy ourselves and this planet?

Is it possible that all major religions have at their core the way to our salvation....through love, compassion and empathy?  That some religions tend to pervert this through adherence to manmade doctrine, often for self serving purposes (such as the subjugation of women)?

Just stuff to ponder.  

Please keep everything respectable.  I truly want to find common ground, not rip everyone apart.  I would also prefer that anyone who may care to participate come not with self righteousness but with an open mind and the understanding that not one person alive, past, present or future really knows The Truth.  If you can't agree to all of this, please move on.

I am an atheist. But if you BELIEVE in a religion, a certain religion, most of them say that their way is the only way to salvation. So, if you truely believe then yes all the other religions would be wrong and pointless.

I've never met two people who believe exactly the same way. So to some degree I think everyone is wrong.

I don't ever assume my religion is the only way. I'm a very progressive Lutheran because I grew up that way. DS attends a private Lutheran school.

I think mine is the best, but I don't put down others.  I even attend others, but always feel likes something is missing.
